Pellets are items from the Pikmin series that appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the stage Distant Planet. They grow on Pellet Posies, which they can be knocked off of by attacking them, at which point they function like normal throwing items, allowing them to picked up and thrown at opponents to cause some damage. There are three possible colors pellets can have (namely red, blue and yellow), and each has a number on it that determines its size, although these factors make no difference to any damage they may deal. When a pellet is thrown into an Onion that may appear on the stage, the Onion will use up the pellet to release items. In addition to their appearance on the Distant Planet, pellets have a trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

|A crystallized nectar that contains the essence of the Pikmin's home world, these pellets are most often harvested from the plant life of the planet. Each pellet displays a number on its surface, and this number may increase over time. The Onion generates more Pikmin with bigger numbers.||The crystallised essence of the Pikmin's home planet. You'll need these things if you want more Pikmin, so harvest them by attacking the Pellet Posy they come from. By the way, keep an eye on the number on the front - it goes up little by little, and the higher it goes, the more items you'll get when you lob the pellet at an Onion!|
