Captain Olimar is the main character in the Pikmin series, created by Shigeru Miyamoto. He leads an army of Pikmin to gather whatever he needs gathered. He has so far appeared in Pikmin, Pikmin 2, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Pikmin 3
An alternate appearance by Olimar that was supposed to occur was one in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. He was one of the people who was to come in and taste the player's coffee. However, he and all other coffee tasters were replaced by Professor E. Gadd, so this never occurred.
Olimar's name is an anagram of Mario's name with and extra L added.
