Olimar is back for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, having last appeared in Super Smash Bros Brawl on the Wii. A lot has changed since then, so veteran Olimar players will need to study up and learn some of the new features. We’ve included some key info below.
Coming in from the Pikmin series, Olimar is definitely one of the stranger looking fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In the table below, you can find a complete moves list for Olimar.
|Special Move Controls||Special Type||Special Move Name|
|B||Neutral Special||Pikmin Pluck|
|Left Stick Left/Right + B||Green Missile||Pikmin Throw|
|Left Stick Up + B||Up Special||Airborne Pikmin|
|Left Stick Down + B||Down Special||Pikmin Order|
|B when FS Meter is Full||Final Smash||End of Day|
Unlike previous Smash games, fighters are unlocked in the same way for all, rather than character-specific challenges. This means that while it can be a bit of a grind, all you need to do is play the game naturally and you’ll eventually unlock all of the characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. We’ve listed the three ways you can unlock characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate below:

Olimar has gone through quite a few changes since his last appearance. We’ve listed what we’ve noticed, below:
Just like the rest of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate roster, Olimar comes packed with some alternate costumes. They are mostly color swaps of his spacesuit, in yellow, orange, green and grey variants. Alph is also available as an Alternate Costume, with blue, green, pink, and orange versions. You can check out Alph in the image embedded above.
Olimar’s Final Smash is still End of Day in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. It involves Olimar climbing into his ship, flying up high and then speeding back down to explode on the stage. The move as a whole is much faster than it was in Brawl, you can check it out in the video embedded above.
That’s all the details we know about Olimar in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. We’ll be updating this guide with more details as we get them.
