Pikmin Wiki

"Those Pikmin are so brave and loyal. When I think about them fighting and risking their lives for us, it just tugs at my heartstrings."
— Brittany

Brittany (キャプテン・ブリトニー, Buritonī) is one of the three playable leaders featured in Pikmin 3. She serves as a botanist for the crew, recording her notes on the fruits found on PNF-404.

She is strong-willed, but also gluttonous. Although she claims to distribute the juice evenly amongst her crew mates, she portions more for herself than she does with the others. However, this does not affect gameplay.


Brittany has a pointed nose, small black eyes, and shoulder-length pink hair. She wears glasses with dark red frames, a bulky space suit with a transparent helmet, whistle, and an antenna. Her gloves and boots are the same shade of pink as her hair, as is the light atop her helmet's antenna.

Differentiating her from all other leaders are some feminine touches: her suit ends in a small skirt highlighted in pink, and a gap in the sole of her boots gives the impression of a modest heel. In prerelease versions, both her spacesuit and antenna-light were colored yellow.


"Alph?! Sorry about that. I was just taking a little nap. So, you're close by? Why wasn't I moving, you ask? Hee hee, well, you know me. I can sleep anywhere. But never mind that. Listen, I discovered what looks like a huge piece of fruit! It's over there! But I'm stuck here for the time being. Could you go and check it out for me?"
— Brittany to Alph

Brittany is, for the most part, a caring and friendly individual. She takes her role as the crew's botanist very seriously, making note of every piece of fruit the crew finds, and also portioning out the helpings of juice delivered at the end of each day. Brittany is a bit of a glutton, humorously noted for retaining the largest portions of juice among her fellow crewmates. Alph does suspect that she tends to take slightly more than her share of juice, but Brittany will always shrug it off and insist that she is handing out equal portions, implying she is also fairly dishonest. She also seems to have a liking for all things cute, particularly the Pikmin and some of the fruit she encounters.

Brittany appears to have a mostly friendly, if not flirty relationship with Alph, sometimes calling him "Alphie" in an affectionate way and always preferring to talk with him instead of Charlie. However, she seems to have a disliking for Charlie, noted by insulting his favorite color when mentioning the green color of Dawn Pustules and suspecting that he was 'hogging all the fruit to himself' before rescuing him in Distant Tundra. She will also consider giving him portions of juice even smaller than Alph's. Brittany also seems to get lonely and homesick easily, as seen in the Fruit Files, where she says she misses her family and frequently relates fruit to her auntie Bea, who she is particularly fond of. Knowing that the Pikmin are plants themselves, Brittany has a deep respect and care toward them, lamenting the loss of any Pikmin to large creatures or bosses.


Spoiler warning: Plot or ending details follow.


Brittany has an aunt named Bea. She has had love of fruits since she was a child. At some point, Brittany became a botanist and befriended two other Koppaites, Alph and Captain Charlie.

Pikmin 3

Brittany, Alph and Captain Charlie, three astronauts from the planet Koppai, were are tasked with saving their home planet after their planet's food supplies become nearly depleted. When data collected reveals that a distant planet is rich with a variety of fruits whose seeds can be cultivated on Koppai to end the food shortage, the crew of three travel to the planet in the S.S. Drake. However, their ship malfunctions and they become separated just before landing, with the cosmic-drive key also being lost, which is mandatory for leaving the planet.

The three eventually reunite and begin collecting fruit, harvesting their seeds and using their juice for sustenance while on the planet, and eventually meets up with Louie and later on Olimar, who they rescue from the Plasm Wraith. He then gives them their lost cosmic-drive key, allowing them to return to Koppai safely with their findings.

Main Article: Brittany/Gallery


  • Brittany is the first playable female character in the Pikmin series.
  • Brittany, along with the President's wife and Nelle, are the only characters seen wearing glasses. Interestingly, both of these characters' glasses have red frames.
  • Brittany's initial of her name is the same letter of her prototype name (Character B), just like Alph and Charlie.
  • Before rescuing Charlie, Brittany will occasionally mention at the end of the day that she'll shorten Alph's ration of juice to have more for herself, showing her gluttonous nature. She also affectionately calls Alph "Alphie".
  • Brittany is the only character with a normally sized nose.  It appears to run in her family and it is hinted in the notes of the Tremendous Sniffer that they wished they had big noses, as she states that they all envy her aunt's big one.
  • Originally, HTML on the Pikmin 3 Japanese website could be decoded to reveal a line of text, "Brittany, botanist on behalf of Coppa Lee Star", whereas Alph and Charlie were both listed as "on behalf of Koppai Star". Because "star" can translate to any celestial body, many assumed this meant Brittany was in fact from Koppai's moon, which was thought to be called "Coppa Lee/Koppali". However, it was later discovered to be a mistranslation.
  • Brittany's name can be referencing to Botany (a name given to Biology that specialize in plants), as Brittany is a scientist in this field of Biology.
  • She might be related to Nelle, as hinted at by Yorke and Don Bergman.
  • Brittany is hated on by the Pikmin community a lot because of her attitude and rude comments.
