** Hey! Pikmin's amiibo functionality is VERY picky. For example, you must use the Super Mario series Mario to get the Mario statue as well as Isabelle's winter and summer outfits and the Inklings' PaletteSwaps counting as separate items to be claimed. To counter this problem, the Pikmin amiibo(which has it's own statue) can unlock 5 other amiibo challenges per day, meaning that you don't need every last amiibo the game recognizes to complete the amiibo archives.

* ForestOfPerpetualAutumn: ''Pikmin 2'' and ''3'' have, respectively, the Wistful Wild and the Twilight River. The former is an eerie forest region with decaying flora that merges the mainlands of [[spoiler:the Impact Site and the Final Trial]] from the first ''Pikmin'' game. The latter retains the autumn setting, but its music makes it more cheerful despite having more enemies (including hornets and aquatic creatures). Note that both games have levels that already represent the other seasons, which justifies the perpetual autumn of the aforementioned regions gameplay-wise even if it doesn't story-wise.



* SeasonalBaggage: Downplayed in ''Pikmin 2'' and ''3''. In both games, each of the four seasons is present within one particular area, rather than all seasons appearing in a cyclic fashion through all areas. In the second game, [[SlippySlideyIceWorld Valley of Repose]] is set in winter, [[LostWoods Awakening Wood]] is set in spring, [[PalmtreePanic Perplexing Pool]] is set in summer, and [[BleakLevel Wistful Wild]] is set in autumn. The third game has it like this: Tropical Wilds (summer), Garden of Hope (spring), Distant Tundra (winter), and Twilight River (autumn).

* DreadfulDragonfly: Subverted with the Nectarious Dandlefly, dragonfly slash butterfly hybrids: while they are positively massive have an eerie echoeing cry, these damselflies are completely harmless to the Pikmin, and carry precious nectar on their body segments.

A spin-off for the ''[=3DS=]'' was also surprisingly announced on the [[http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/09-01-2016/#/video-1ndirect 9/1/16 Nintendo direct]], featuring Olimar and the Pikmin cast from ''3'' back in the lead roles on a [=2D=] action platforming adventure. The story involves Olimar in his new ship, the S.S. Dolphan 2 once again crash landing on a ''new'' planet that somehow also has Pikmin on it. Rather used to this by now, Olimar must use the various Pikmin colors to collect treasure in order to refuel his ship and blast off. This new title called ''[[ExcitedEpisodeTitle Hey! Pikmin]]'' will be compatable with ''Toys/{{Amiibo}}'', with its own specific Amiibo featuring the titled plant creatures releasing the same day it does.

* CrutchCharacter: The Red Pikmin in the second game are pretty useful until you get a sizeable amount of Purple Pikmin, which outclass them in combat. Additionally, fire hazards, the only other claim to fame Red Pikmin have, are easier to brute-force with the incorrect Pikmin color than other elemental hazards are. That being said, their faster speed over their Purple counterparts makes them important for fast-moving bosses such as the Segmented Crawbster.

Crawbster. They lose this status in Pikmin 3 due to Purple Pikmin being absent and Rock Pikmin being unable to latch onto enemies in exchange for dealing more damage when they're thrown.

* SerialEscalation: The FinalBoss of each Pikmin game tends to be more extravegent and [[NightmareFuel nightmarish]] than the last. As [[https://www.reddit.com/r/Pikmin/comments/6qo2kh/can_we_appreciate_that_with_each_passing_game/ this image demonstrates]], the protagonists go from fighting {{King Mook}}s as the final boss to downright {{Eldritch Abomination}}s.

* ClamTrap: The Pearly Clamclamp is a clam that opens its mouth when the Pikmin attack the pearl it is protecting (or in one case, the Radiation Canopy, [[PlotCoupon one of the pieces of Captain Olimar's ship, The Dolphin]]). If the Pikmin aren't called back fast enough, the Pearly Clamclamp will close its mouth over them and eat them, even doing so after they've recovered its pearl. The pearl it guards can produce 50 Pikmin when brought back to one of the Onions.
