Dark Pikmin, also known as Black Pikmin, are Pikmin species in Pikmin 2... Again? that are unseen in shadows and can easily avoid being seen by predators. It is first found in the Ominous Underground. They have blue petals and distinct glowing cyan eyes, and their voice is more distorted-sounding than that of other Pikmin types. Rather than their speed increasing as they mature or if ultra-spicy spray is used on them, advancing in maturity increases the damage they inflict every hit. However, they have a lower digging speed, don't fly as far as the other types when thrown, and die sooner to other hazards. Notably, Dark Pikmin are immune to the effects of wither.


Olimar's notes

Dark Pikmin / Pikmin / Pikminidae shinobi. Dark Pikmin have cyan glowing eyes, and White Pikmin also have eyes red eyes, but they don't compare beyond appearance. Dark Pikmin are resistant to what I call "wither", which I struggle to know everything about even today. They are quite sneaky as well. Reminds me of someone I know... Actually, makes sense, considering it's hard to see shadows in the dark! Their attack seems lacking, though this is until their leaves mature into buds and then flowers, their attack increasing as maturity advances. However, they don't increase in speed as they mature due to focusing on damage instead of speed. It has its costs, I suppose. Some other downsides include their poor digging skill, reduced throw distance and height, and, as I noticed, extreme vulnerability to elements. Dark Pikmin seem like such an alien species, even for the wildlife on this planet, but the new creatures I've been encountering all seem strange too... Maybe there's much more to learn about Dark Pikmin than I know? I would have called them "Black Pikmin", but I decided to name them after their shadowy characteristics than their color.

Louie's notes

I imagine it would taste sour if all of those black creepy ones were also. Or its candypop bud. Better not to try this one too.

Hocotate Ship's notes

I know their color can make them able to hide in the shadows unseen. But the question is, how don't those creatures get scared or suspect something's wrong when there are two glowing eyes staring at them?

Cosmicaptain's comments

In that case, based there's even those kinds of creatures... I actually don't know how this ever happened. But at least the Dark Pikmin aren't hostile, just like any other Pikmin! However, i have to still know more about wither, in first place, where is Olimar when i most need him?

Unknown commenter's comments

So, know when they say "When you look into the abyss, the abyss looks back at you"? In this case, it's "You look at the shadows, a pair of cyan eyes looks back at you.", I think for the Dark Pikmin.

Dark Pikmin are the final Pikmin species discovered in Pikmin SP, found in the Path to Darkness, and are necessary to defeat the game's final boss. Dark Pikmin are made of dark matter, which they are resistant to, have an eerie red glow, empty, purple eyes, and a jet black flower with a blue center. They have an Onion, which is found in the landing site of the Path of Darkness and contains one hundred Dark Pikmin. Shadow Candypop Buds can be used to convert Pikmin into Dark Pikmin, but beware as they are always heavily guarded by enemies on all sides. Only a mere glimpse of Shadow Candypop Buds is caught in the Shadow Nest, the Path to Darkness's sole cave. They cannot be plucked normally, requiring the use of the Pluckaphone, an upgrade received from the Diamond Tweeter, to uproot them.

The final boss is able to create its own Dark Pikmin, which possess the same abilities as normal Dark Pikmin but have a different appearance. They are still comprised of dark matter but glow purple, have red eyes with dark red pupils, and the center of their flower is red. The final boss's Dark Pikmin are openly hostile to Pikmin and leaders, even attacking friendly Dark Pikmin. They cannot be whistled.

  3. The third will be jumped on by an alien Pikmin;
  4. The fourth will have its legs tugged on by two alien Pikmin;
