Red Pikmin are the first species of Pikmin encountered in most Pikmin games. They are resistant to fire, and are average fighters, the best of the three primary Pikmin (Blue and Yellow). Their appearance is similar to the average Pikmin, but they are red and sport pointed noses, which are probably the reason they are such good fighters.
