* GameBreakingBug: In the original, it was possible to drop the Libra down a bottomless pit, rendering it LostForever and the game {{Unwinnable}}. The second game fixed this by having fallen treasures immediately respawn near where they fell. It also featured way more bottomless pits, making this very necessary.

** The fruit in ''Pikmin 3'' all have amusing names; lemons are "face wrinklers", the banana is a "slapstick crescent", the peach is a "mock bottom", and so on.

* ArtificialStupidity: While the Pikmin are generally easy to handle while under your control, and they get better about not getting distracted or rush into dangerous situations as the games go on, they're not exactly the brightest plant animal creatures in the gaming world... They'll gladly follow you into hazards that can one shot them, will often get distracted by such things like grass and pellet poseys while trying to run away from enemies, and will often attempt to take the most dangerous route back to the ship, even if there's a much quicker and safer route they could take.

* InexplicablyPreservedDungeonMeat: Some of the treasures in ''2'' are various foodstuffs that are surprisingly edible, to the point that Olimar and Louie keep sneaking bites of many of them. With Louie it's [[BigEater plausible]], but you'd think Olimar would show more caution about eating something he found in cave, and on another planet to boot.

* ThemeNaming: Alph, Brittany, and Charlie is similar to the American mililtary phonetic alphabet (which goes, Alpha, Bravo, Charlie.)

* TrilogyCreep: Originally, Miyamoto stated he wanted Pikmin to be a trilogy. However, merely two years after ''3'''s release, he confirmed a ''Pikmin 4'' was close to completion.

* Suspicious Videogame Generosity: This can happen in all of the games, but it is mostly prominent in ''Pikmin 2''. There are often [[DeathTrap traps in]] [[BoobyTrap the caves]], of which include [[OneHitKill explosives and falling rocks]], but these [[ParanoiaFuel nasty things are more often than not triggered in dead ends with treasure, or nectar]]. God forbid you leave your Pikmin unattended. In fact, it will happen so often in the late game that most players will expect it to happen every time and take extreme precautions.
