Bouncy Mushrooms are special fungi in Pikmin 3, Pikmin 4, and Hey! Pikmin. They are large, flat, red mushrooms, and Pikmin and leaders can land on their tops; when they do so, they bounce up onto a pre-determined spot, even if it is another mushroom in a chain. For the majority of the mushrooms, a leader has to throw the Pikmin or other leaders onto the mushroom, but a few of them can be accessed by falling from above. The leader or Pikmin will always get launched as long as they touch its top, regardless of where they touch or whether they fell on it or got thrown.


Pikmin 3[edit]


Distant Tundra
Tropical Wilds
  • One is used to access one seesaw block of a pair. Only Yellow Pikmin can reach it.
Twilight River
  • One is found in the water, at the end of the longer lily pad path.

Mission Mode[edit]

Clockwork Chasm (Collect Treasure!)
  • One at the end of the conveyor belt at which the leaders start; during the countdown they are conveyed away from it. This bouncy mushroom merely bounces one back to the SPERO.
Distant Tundra Remix

All Bouncy Mushrooms are in the same locations as the Distant Tundra in the story, except for the chain of two at the edge of the area. Instead, there is a chain of three between the overturned plant pot and the ledge containing two Pyroclasmic Slooches.

Fortress of Festivity (both Collect Treasure! and Battle Enemies!)
  • A chain of two leading from a geyser on a red gift box to the slide around the Christmas tree.
  • A chain of three leading from the white cake to a raised blue gift box.
Tropical Forest Remix
  • One next to the incomplete bridge, useful for exchanging Pikmin types between leaders before the bridge is completed.
