Purple Pikmin are a type of Pikmin whose most noteworthy characteristics are their incredible weight and carrying strength, ten times those of other Pikmin. They are also slower than average-size Pikmin and have a unique way of attacking enemies through a pound. Their defining physical characteristics are their purple color, as the name would imply, as well as their bulbous physique when compared to other Pikmin, and their magenta buds and flowers, in addition to the straight trichomes atop their heads.

Purple Pikmin are the fourth type of Pikmin discovered in Pikmin Forever. They are found at the Scalding Thicket, in its first cave, the Buried Bole. They weigh and carry ten times the other types of Pikmin, and can stun most enemies for two seconds. A Purple Pikmin's pound not only stuns enemies but can also break up loose ground, revealing shortcuts or helping dig through mounds of dirt.

In Pikmin Kart

In Pikmin Kart, Purple Pikmin are items that are uncommonly found from item boxes and have a short throw range. After being thrown or dropped somewhere onto the course, Purple Pikmin latch onto the first kart they can get close enough to, slowing the kart far more than other Pikmin items for as long as they hang on. Additionally, upon landing from being thrown or latching onto a kart, a Purple Pikmin produces a shockwave that spins out any kart in its wide circular range. Swerving the kart forces the Purple Pikmin off, and doing so is usually easy because they can not hang on for long. As with all Pikmin items, the Whistle item not only protects a kart from Pikmin attacks but also allows the Whistle's user to take a Pikmin item for themselves to use.

In Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs, Purple Pikmin are the same as in Pikmin 2. They and their Onion are found within the Loaf Territory of the Land of Wonders. Using their pounds alone, Purple Pikmin instantly destroy the hard coating of Brown Sugar Breadbugs and Stale Breadbugs. Purple Pikmin, in certain circumstances, can also pound on and demolish reinforced gates, specifically the one in the Hidden Territory, which guards the Bulbmin and their respective Onion. Thus, Bulbmin can not be obtained until after Purple Pikmin are.

In Pikmin: Forces of Evil, Purple Pikmin gain substantial benefits in the forms of explosion resistance and their very own Onion. Purple Pikmin can jump at the same height as a normal Pikmin, and pull themselves up onto ledges, sharing a trait with Red Pikmin. Once Olimar collects the Warsong, he can spark fury within his Pikmin to double their strength and speed, making Purple Pikmin viable for killing larger, stronger enemies and bosses efficiently. Before the boss battle with Possessed Lord Bowser in the Mushroom World, Louie plants two fast-growing violet Queen Candypop Buds for Olimar and does so for the duration of the battle as the boss can only be harmed by either Purple Pikmin, or Red Pikmin with Prometheus's Gift. With the Hulker Bulker, Purple Pikmin are a clear choice for the grueling end-of-world bosses.

In Pikmin: Treasure Colonization, Purple Pikmin are the fifth Pikmin type discovered and have pink petals. Their superior strength and weight greatly reduce the range of their throw arc, making them the least useful in collecting treasures perched on ledges unless there is a more direct route to them. Their latch-on attack's damage output is only just above average, but the thud they make upon landing deals a good amount of damage and has a low chance of stunning enemies for two to three real-world seconds. Purple Pikmin have a height of thirty-three millimeters, and a carrying capacity of twenty while under the effects of ultra-sour spray.

Notes

Olimar's notes

One of the two Pikmin types that I discovered underground. Their strength is 10 times more than other types. The downside to them is their sluggish movement and their weight working against them while being thrown. I'm still in wonder if their onion exists, or if the violet candypop bud is a mutation of the other candypop buds, evolved to live underground...

Tang's notes

When I was first introduced to this Pikmin species, I was in awe of such a species existing. It is perfect for combat, and when backing it up with Red Pikmin and Rock Pikmin you have an amazing combination storm of damage!

Robin's notes

Quite sluggish, yet its carrying strength is astonishing. It's weird to think that these Pikmin don't have an Onion, however. I started working on a contraption that will connect to the ship itself and can hold onto these lil' guys to make it more comfortable for them.
