- This article relates to the official games. See Pikipedia's "leader" article for more official information.
Leaders, also called captains, are characters the player controls directly. They can lead a squad of Pikmin and can command the squad through throwing, whistling, and other actions. Inactive leaders, which are those not currently being controlled, will stand idle and flee from danger, but closely follow the active leader if they are in their squad. When a leader loses all of their health, they become unconscious, and the day ends if all leaders faint. Pikmin following a fallen leader become idle, and the leader is moved to the ship, where they stay until the end of the day. Conversely, several enemies act as leaders, stealing Pikmin or scouting with their own underlings.
