* 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.

* InexplicablyPreservedDungeonMeat: The series takes place on Earth 250 million years in the future (as confirmed by ''3'') and has a suspicious lack of humans, but 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.)

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Want to drown, electrocute, burn, poison or let pikmin get eaten up by predators? Go ahead. You monster.
** Of the more benign variety in Pikmin 3: Push some Pikmin that are carrying objects around, just to hear them cry out as they almost drop it. You jerk.

* PerplexingPearlProduction: The Pearly Clam Clamp enemy guards a pearl (except for one that is guarding the Positron Generator, [[PlotCoupon one of the pieces of the Dolphin]], Captain Olimar's spaceship). This pearl can produce 50 Pikmin when brought back to one of the Onions, but the Pearly Clam Clamp is very protective of it, and [[ClamTrap will close its mouth over the Pikmin and eat them]] if they are not called back fast enough, even after they've recovered it.

** Having the max amount of Pikmin on a collectable makes them take it back to the ship/Onion quicker, but this is more of a timesink than it helps. It's better to have the minimum amount of Pikmin on a collectable so that you have a larger group overall to carry multiple collectables back at a time.
