Olimar is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed along with many other characters who appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl on March 20, 2015. Kazumi Totaka (who also voiced Yoshi and Louie) provides the voice for Olimar in this fighting game, while the Pikmin voices are provided by Hajime Wakai (who also voiced Alph) and the Winged Pikmin voices are provided by Atsuko Asashi (who also voiced Brittany).
Captain Olimar hails from the planet Hocotate. As a Hocotatian, Olimar's appearance is largely humanoid, yet displays a number of distinct traits: he is extremely minuscule in size (being ≈1.9 cm, ≈0.75 in tall), has a large head-to-body ratio, a bulbous nose, pointy ears, small tufts of hair and hyphen-shaped eyes that, during moments of surprise, comically bulge out and appear similar to human eyes. In regard to Olimar's personality, it is revealed via his journal that he is caring and dedicated to his family, while also having a taste for the arts and that he "always had a way with animals", the latter of which is evident with his Piklopedia. Olimar's name is a reference to Nintendo's mascot, Mario: his Japanese name, "Orimā", is "Mario" written backward in Japanese when written in kana.
Captain Olimar debuted in the Nintendo GameCube game, Pikmin, where he is the playable character. His first adventure details how his vacation is derailed due to his ship, the S.S. Dolphin, crash landing on an uncharted planet after it is struck by a meteor. Upon landing and discovering that the S.S. Dolphin has been severely damaged and that his life support system will expire in thirty days, which is further compounded by the planet's atmosphere being rich in oxygen (which is poisonous to Hocotatians), Olimar sets out to repair his ship. He also stumbles upon a sentient, indigenous plant/animal hybrid species, which he dubs Pikmin to help him find his ship's parts. There are three possible endings to Pikmin; in the canon ending, Olimar returns home with the S.S. Dolphin fully repaired, segueing directly into the beginning of Pikmin 2.
