Pikmin Chain is Captain Olimar's up special move in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is a Tether Recovery that uses at least one Pikmin next to Olimar. Using the Pikmin following Olimar, Olimar uses them to grab onto the edge of a stage if he is falling off. The Pikmin grab onto each others feet, acting as a Pikmin Chain, hence the name. The less Pikmin, the shorter the range of the chain is. Olimar can then pull himself back to the stage if the Pikmin grab onto the ledge. This move does damage and knock-back to foes hit, and if Olimar is in the air, he passes through the opponent to grab the ledge. On the ground, Olimar whips the chain diagonally upwards in the direction he is facing, allowing him to hit distant foes. The damage and properties of the attack are dependent on the last Pikmin in the chain, as when he uses the move, the Pikmin assemble in reverse order. Olimar is put into a helpless state if he fails to grab an edge in mid-air.
