Louieis the friend and partner of Olimar'. His first appearance was in Pikmin 2, where he was sent on a mission to transport a shipment of golden Pikpik Carrots. He was supposedly attacked by a Ravenous Space Bunny, which is supposedly how the Pikpik Carrots were lost, but it turned out that Louie himself snacked on them. To cover the losses of the valuble carrots, The President took out a huge loan. The only loan available was Olimar's ship, the SS Dolphin. When Louie and Olimar traveled to the Distant Planet, they discovered treasure, which they could use to pay off the loan. Louie eats bugs, for he was raised that way by his grandmother. and Princess Sally.
