The Broken Cooking God (折れた食神?) is a treasure exclusive to the Japanese version of Pikmin 2. It is the head of a broken metal spork, and it can be found in Shower Room on sublevel 5. It may be found in a grate of water, requiring Blue Pikmin to get it. When it is out of the grate, a Dwarf Orange Bulborb may be near the grate and several Fiery and Withering Blowhogs may trouble Pikmin as they bring it to the Research Pod. In the US version, the Broken Food Master can be found here, and in the European version, the Merciless Extractor.

- Text: “なんとも奇妙な形状の金属器だ。途中で折れていて全体像がわからない。ドルフィン初号機は、神器の一種だと主張しているが、私は洗面器だと思う。底に顔が映ってとても便利ではないか。”
- Translation: “What a strangely shaped piece of metal this is! It's broken in the middle, and I can't work its whole picture. The ship says this is a divine tool, but I think it's a basin. Isn't it convenient that your face reflects from the bottom?”
- Text: “この神々しいかがやきを見よ！ 生きとし生ける者の舌を支配し、あらゆる食を司る超存在。…………。デモ舌ヲ持タナイ私タチ機械ニハ、無縁ナノデス。”
- Translation: “Behold this godly shine! This is a super-existence, ruling over every living being's tongue and controlling every kind of food. …………
But we machines cannot experience the flavor, as we have no mouths.”
