The Hocotate Ship is Captain Olimar's space ship from Pikmin 2. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the ship appears as part of Olimar's Final Smash, End of Day. Captain Olimar jumps into the ship to initiate this Final Smash. Also, for his entrance, Olimar jumps out of the ship. It also has a role in Super Smash Bros. Brawl's Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary; when the Subspace Gunship destroys the Halberd, the Hocotate Ship is one of the smaller ships that emerges. The Hocotate Ship can also be seen at the background of the beginning of Outside the Ancient Ruins.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Hocotate Ship appears as an item called the Hocotate Bomb. After it is thrown, the ship flies into the air; it can also carry opponents above the upper blast line. After a while, the ship flies back to the ground, exploding to damage any nearby players.

|With the outward appearance of a Hocotate Freight ship, this is actually a bomb in disguise! Arm it by throwing it on the ground, and give it a nudge if you're impatient. It'll fly up into the sky, returning a short time later and exploding. Force your foes into the landing zone!||The flagship of Hocotate Freight has been reinvented as...a bomb! To arm it, throw it, then wait. Or give it a nudge - up to you. It'll shoot up in the air, then after a bit, fall back down to its starting point and go off. Try to remember where it was set off - you really don't want to get caught in the blast.|
