Yellow Pikmin are more useful (and less sacraficey) in Pikmin 2 than the first game.
In the strategy game Smash Tactics, Yellow Pikmin can be trained by the Hocotate faction, and throw exploding rocks at enemy units, making them effective against ranged attackers. They are trained at the Candypop Bud.
