Although the main character, Olimar, only appears in two Nintendo games somehow made it into Brawl. This is a source of much chagrin amongst the Nintendo fanboys who would have much rather seen Waluigi or some other character who doesn't feature in even one game.
Pikmin 1 is basically this: Captain Olimar flies around in this dinky little plastic spaceship, until a meteor pwns him. He goes flying down onto a planet and catches on fire, where his ship bursts into pieces. So, a few hours later, Olimar wakes up, dazed and confused on the ground. He looks around, and sees that his plastic toy ship has been pwnt. So he cuts himself over it then looks around. He eventually finds a big round thing. It pops up out of the ground and shits out a seed, which then goes into the ground. Olimar dubs this round thing as the "Onion". What a creative mind!
After a few months of careful gardening skills, it finally grows enough so that Olimar can viciously rip it out of the ground like a newborn infant out of its mother's womb. He finds out that the little tardling can carry stuff. The little shit runs over, rapes a flower to death and steals a pellet from it, which it subsequently shoves up the Onion's ass. A few seconds later, the Onion shits out some more seeds to make more of black person. Aha! The Onion is basically a huge vagina! Awesome!
Olimar now has to collect all the pieces of his ship (which are completely intact despite having FUCKING exploded) in 30 days, using his little Pikmin as slaves. HARDCORE. If you leave them alone during the night, Bulborbs come and eat them, so JAM them all in the fucking onion. If you let one of your Pikmin grow in the ground long enough, they grow flowers on their heads.
- Red Pikmin: The steroid-users. They pwn the hardest, apparently, because they're just that fucking good. They can also avoid being burned for no apparent reason.
- Blue Pikmin: The weak little bitches of the Pikmin family. They whine the most, which is why they suck physically. Unfortunately they don't drown when thrown into the water.
- Yellow Pikmin: The ugliest ones with dumbo ears that nobody likes. Apparently, they have the ability to fly. They can also pick up bombs and throw them, or be used as suicide bombers, the latter being more useful.
Pikmin 2. Olimar gets his ship together and goes flying back to his planet. He gets there and finds out that his fatass, douchebag boss has gone into bankruptcy, basically thoroughly screwing over Olimar. Out of shock, he drops a bottle cap he had taken home as a souvenir for his son. The nearby ship sucks it up with its mouth nozzle and values the thing to be worth at least 100 Pokos (Hocotation currency).
- White Pikmin: The skinny, crackhead basement dwellers of the Pikmin family. Specializes in poison and coincidentally has red eyes. It is roughly 100% probable that you are a white Pikmin.
- Purple Pikmin: The lardasses of the Pikmin family. They are the most rotund and thus the slowest of all types of Pikmin. However, it's important to note that they can steal far more stuff than all other Pikmin on account of being so fucking fat.
Many people believe that the original plan was to have white and black Pikmin, but Nindendo feared bitchy niggers and whites and shit complaining that making the fat ones black and making the white ones defenseless would be racist. So like Pokemon's Jinx, the Pikmin were made purple, the next closest thing to black and white was still made white.
Olimar is universally regarded as the worst character in Brawl. Olimar uses his Pikmin to attack, because he's a poofter who isn't willing to dirty his own hands. Tourneyfags and people who are serious about this game all hate Olimar because his Pikmanz are 2 strong. Olimar throws his Pikmin at other characters, which then attach to them and viciously rape them to death. Everyone uses Olimar because of his speed and power, and his long grab that has no lag to it. The only downside is his tether recovery, which can be easily edgehogged. And each Pikmin has a special power! Red has fire, Yellow has electricity, Blue has nothing because blue Pikmin suck, Purple has power because it's a fatass, and White can rape other players the hardest. You can either suck or blow (if you are gay then take that literally) with Pikmin. Chances are that if you're a guy who rules with Olimar, as soon as you kick one of your Wi-fi buddies shitless they will either unfriend you or tell you to stop using Olimar.
Shortly after E3 2008, Shigeru Miyaoromaoto announced that Nintendo is working on a new Pikmin game. It has been planned for release on the Wii U.
