The Blonde Impostor (ミカケヒトシ?, lit.: "Similar Appearance") is a fruit in Pikmin 3. This is a golden kiwifruit, and like the Disguised Delicacy, which is also a kiwi, it splits into two pieces when discovered. Each half produces only three-fourths of a cup of juice, so for the full cup and a half, both pieces must be recovered (This is limited to three-eighths and three-fourths respectively in Ultra-Spicy mode). This fruit does not appear in either Mission Mode or Bingo Battle.
Collecting the fruit
First, you must obtain the Winged Pikmin and order them to lift the dam in order to open the second half of the area. Ride the lily pad until near the Bouncy Mushroom, and throw at least one leader as well as some Rock Pikmin and Winged Pikmin onto the Bouncy Mushroom. The fruit is inside the crystal. Any type of Pikmin can carry it back, but using the Winged Pikmin is much easier as they can carry it over water. Just make sure to defeat the nearby Arachnode so they do not get stuck in its web. If you use grounded Pikmin, the electric gate must be destroyed or the Pikmin will take the Burrowing Snagret path, which will make it emerge from the ground and eat the carrying Pikmin.
“Aha! This furry little fruit tried to hide itself under a veil of camouflage and fuzz, but I won't be fooled. Tell me, Ms. Fauna, if you are indeed animal and not vegetable, WHERE ARE YOUR LEGS?!Checkmate, fruit.”
“Aha! This fuzzy fruit obviously wanted to camouflage itself as a wild beast, but I wasn't fooled for a minute. The lack of legs was a dead give-away. In any case, it's so delicious-looking, and so full of Piktamin U, that I doubt the odd limb or two would put me off...”
