The Sagittarius (サジタリウス?, lit.: "Sagittarius") is a ship part featured in Pikmin and Olimar's Shipwreck Tale in Pikmin 4. It was a present given to Captain Olimar by his son on Hocotate. It always reminds him of the memories of his son when he sees it, it also makes him wonder how worried his son is after Olimar's collision with the meteor. Though mandatory, its function remains entirely unknown. After being collected, the Sagittarius appears on the ship's hull, starboard at cockpit level (to Captain Olimar's right when he is seated).

The Sagittarius reappears as a ship part in Olimar's Shipwreck Tale in Pikmin 4. It is found in the Serene Shores.

Collecting the partEdit

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

In PikminEdit

Location of the Sagittarius.

The part is on an island in the large lake inhabited by Wolpoles. Two bridges need to be built, one surrounded by Sheargrubs and the other on another island. Blue Pikmin are usually needed to retrieve this part, however it is possible to use tactical throws to obtain the part with just Yellow Pikmin. The Pikmin must be thrown with a running start toward the small ledge on the right 'shore' of the island the Sagittarius is on, then Olimar must run over to this ledge and call the Pikmin that should have landed in front of it. They should reach him just before drowning, and can then be thrown to build the bridge. This cannot be done in the New Play Control! Pikmin version of the game. The similar-working drowning reset glitch also works.

In Pikmin 4Edit

Location of the Sagittarius.
See also: Pearly Clamclamp#Strategy.

The part is inside a Pearly Clamclamp, found south of the Blossoming Dunes base. The enemy must be defeated to retrieve it; if Blue Pikmin are used to carry the part back, the enemies inside the nearby lake should be defeated as well. If Red or Yellow Pikmin are used, a clipboard must be pulled down using 20 Yellow Pikmin.


Olimar's monologs

I've found my Sagittarius!

My son gave this to me as a present. It brings to mind vision of my son back home on Planet Hocotate. Oh, to be back there right now!

This was a gift from my son. He must be very worried about me...



The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Pikmin.
Particularly: Confirm that the Sagittarius is larger than the Libra. If so, add the info to Sagittarius too.

  • Like the Libra, it may be named after the Sagittarius constellation.
  • Even though the Libra and the Sagittarius are the same size when shown on the S.S. Dolphin, their sizes before being retrieved are different, and the Libra takes only 15 Pikmin to carry while the Sagittarius takes 20. In Olimar's Shipwreck Tale, both the Libra and the Sagittarius have a weight of only 5.
