Red Pikmin are pikmin that were the first ones discovered by Captain Olimar. They are the only Pikmin (In canon Pikmin games) that can survive fire, other than Bulbmin, and are in all three pikmin games. They have a large, pointy nose that appears to be the reason behind its larger than average attack power. The reason behind its flame immunity is a mystery, though some theories have been made about it, including a flame retardant chemical in their skin.

Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs
|Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs
This article or section relates to Pikmin: Attack of the Breadbugs, a non-canon game created by Cheepy-Cheepy.
Red Pikmin retain their fire resistance and strong attacks like in Pikmin 1 and Pikmin 2. Red Pikmin and their Onion can be found in the Beginner Territory within the Land of Wonders. Red Pikmin are found in this Territory because they had retreated from the Inferno Territory, the reason being predators. Hawaiian Breadbugs pose as a nuisance for Captain Olimar. Red Pikmin will follow and refuse to attack or carry any Hawaiian Breadbugs whether they are deceased or not.
They are the same as the Red Pikmin from Pikmin 2. In Pikmin SP, they are found in Quietbreeze Valley once you land. They are found with an onion and they can still be obtained with crimson candypops or queen candypops.
This article and/or image relates to the Non-Canon Game, Pikmin Kart, created by Blueflower999.
In Pikmin Kart, Red Pikmin are items that are found in item boxes commonly. You can throw them in front of your kart and they'll hitch on to a random kart in their range. They'll slow the kart they hitched onto more than the average Pikmin, and the driver of the Kart has to swerver wildly to shake them off. They also won't fall of if the driver drives into a fire geyser. As with all Pikmin items, the Whistle item can protect a player from Pikmin attacks and steal them for himself, so be careful who you throw them at!

These Pikmin are also great fighters, dealing 1.5 times more damage than the average Pikmin. Their flower has white pedals. If a Pikmin is on fire and a Red Pikmin is nearby idling, they'll come to the rescue of the Pikmin, extinguishing their flame. The first type to be discovered.
"It is still a mystery on how these Pikmin have an immunity to fire. My hypothesis is that this species of Pikmin creates a liquid that covers and protects them from fire. More field work needs to be done to prove this right or wrong." - Captain Olimar
"These little fellas are stronger than the rest of the types, making them excellent for fighting. Put that together with a leader who has experience in battle, and their apparent resistance of fire, and you have a combination that is unstoppable in battle!" - Tang
"My research of these little guys has broughten me to the conclusion that they are great at most objectives. Whatever you put them to do, they'll perform a good job at it, which will allow for a more efficient day. Keeping that in mind, it is still best to bring other Pikmin type if they are avalible." - Robin
