Captain Olimar, also referred to as simply Olimar, is the main protagonist of the Pikmin series. He is from the planet Hocotate, and while on several missions for his employer, Hocotate Freight, he discovered PNF-404 and all types of Pikmin so far. In Pikmin 1, he owns and captains a spaceship called the S.S. Dolphin, and in Hey! Pikmin, he owns and captains the S.S. Dolphin II. He has a family back on Hocotate, which includes his wife, son, daughter and dog.
As a Pikmin
Captain Olimar becomes a Pikmin, dubbed by fans as Pikmar or Olimin, in the bad ending of Pikmin 1, where the S.S. Dolphin fails to take off and crashes on the planet again; Olimar is then carried to the Red Onion by some Pikmin and ejected as a seed consisting of only his head and a small stem with leaf. Judging by the sounds and visual effects, he appears to flourish to his former size similar to the way Pikmin first grow. Pikmar is only ever seen buried, so the rest of his appearance is unknown. Why the Onion transforms him instead of turning him into true Pikmin seeds is unknown. However, the Pikmin silently watch as he is spat out and cheer as he begins to grow, indicating that they expected the transformation to occur. Normally, when Pikmin carry Olimar to their Onion, he is not affected in any way and merely bounces off the alien mothership. As such, the process may be controlled by the Pikmin themselves.

In Pikmin: Distant Planet, after Captain Olimar's daring rescue for his family, he decided to carefully fly above the Pikmin Planet. As he flew past a coast he saw what looked like a gigantic metal structure slowly sink into the water as a hurricane raged. The S.S. Dolphin got caught up in the hurricane before Olimar could react. Even so, he managed to pilot it steadily so that it didn't plummet into the ocean and sink. A few days after the storm subsided, Olimar still had not woken from his coma in the fortunately unharmed S.S. Dolphin. Louie had been sent by the President of Hocotate Freight to ensure that no harm had come to his most valuable employee in the Hocotate ship with the Research Pod. The same day he arrived nearby where the S.S. Dolphin had landed, Olimar woke back up. After reuniting and discovering a strange mechanism and meeting some Red Pikmin, they sent back a message to the President that they would investigate the mystery of the potentially deadly metal phantom ship and additionally return with a haul of new and scientifically valuable artifacts, showing him a picture of the odd mechanism. That meant treasure to him, so he agreed to let Olimar and Louie stay on the Distant Planet for the time being. And so, a new adventure began.

This article or section relates to Pikmin: Wide World, a non-canon game created by Cheepy-Cheepy.
|Age||Adulthood (age unknown)|
|Known related characters||Margot (wife), Sagittarius (son), Libra (daughter), Bulbie (pet)|
Captain Olimar appears in Pikmin: Wide World as one of four playable leaders, with him and Shacho being the two initial playable leaders. His suit is cream-colored with red details, and his backpack and beacon are both red in color. Olimar's whistle sounds like a normal pea whistle. Olimar records notes detailing the biology of the lifeforms of the alien planet he is all too familiar with. Back home, on Hocotate, he has a wife, Margot, a son, Sagittarius, a daughter, Libra, and a family pet, Bulbie. Shacho considers him as his most competent, reliable, and trustworthy employee, and a good friend. Marie idolizes him and regards him as a courageous hero, and she envies Margot for being his wife. Louie considers him as his best and only friend.
Immediately after being dropped off on the lot of his place of work by the Koppaite trio of Alph, Brittany, and Captain Charlie using the S.S. Drake, Olimar is immediately confronted by his boss. Soon after, he and Shacho suit up and board the Dolphin Lander, a custom-built spaceship engineered and captained by Olimar, to return to PNF-404 in search of treasure to once again repay a debt. Landing in Balmy Highlands was no easy task as the Dolphin Lander malfunctioned, forcing Olimar and Shacho to work together to reunite thanks to the immense help provided by the Yellow Pikmin they found. After reuniting, Olimar and Shacho recover a treasure and fruit they find and collect what remained of their juice rations.
Eventually, on the night of the defeat of the Greater Bulbot in Ancient Metalworks, Olimar is unusually the last leader to board the Dolphin Lander. Unfortunately, Olimar never can board the ship. The very same Plasm Wraith that had so obsessively held Olimar captive had found him again and abducted him. As it turns out, the Plasm Wraith had been lurking behind the Dolphin Lander every night she landed in that area, in the form of the Plasm Goolix, waiting for the chance to strike. Olimar could not call out for help because the creature had enveloped him and muffled his whistle. The Dolphin Lander and Master Onion could not wait for Olimar any longer and took off without him to avoid the hostile nocturnal wildlife on the planet's surface. Shacho, alarmed and hysterical, dreads the fate of his only reliable and sane employee. Marie worries about Olimar's fate but is completely unaware of Olimar's history with the Plasm Wraith. Louie, in classic fashion, only acknowledges the incident but does not appear impacted by it. The following day, Shacho, Marie, and Louie rush out of the Dolphin Lander and notice a trail of plasm blobs. When approached, some of these blobs animate and merge to form Plasm Illusions. The three Hocotatians gather their Pikmin and follow the trail of plasm to rescue Olimar. When they finally defeat the Plasm Wraith and ensure it is dead, it leaves behind Olimar, as well as a golden cube that can be taken for Pokos or Pikmin seeds.
