The Chance Totem (運試しストーン?, lit.: "Luck Test Stone") is a treasure in Pikmin 2 and Pikmin 4. This item is a white six-sided die, with its 'one' pip being red and larger than the others. It is found in the Awakening Wood above ground, and is located near the Bulblax Kingdom entrance and the ultra-bitter berry-bearing Burgeoning Spiderwort. In Pikmin 4, it is a round-corner dice instead of a square-corner, and can be found in the Kingdom of Beasts, Serene Shores, and Subterranean Swarm.

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

Kingdom of Beasts[edit]

There are 3 Chance Totems inside of a Spotty Bulbear wandering around the middle of sublevel 5 of the Kingdom of Beasts. To collect them, you must first defeat the Spotty Bulbear, and to ensure a safe retrieval, also the three nearby Dwarf Bulbears. Then, throw 2 Pikmin at each treasure.

Serene Shores[edit]

There are 2 Chance Totems inside of a group of jars in an outlet on the westernmost section of the overworld. They are guarded by a Skeeterskate, which should be defeated before attempting to collect the treasures. To collect them, you must first break the jars with a rush from Oatchi. Then, you must either throw 2 Blue Pikmin at each treasure, or freeze the nearby water with 10 Ice Pikmin and throw 2 Pikmin at each treasure.

Subterranean Swarm[edit]

There is a Chance Totem inside of a jar on a tin can on the eastern side of sublevel 4 of the Subterranean Swarm. It is guarded by a Flighty Joustmite and several Shearwigs, which should be defeated before attempting to collect it. To collect this treasure, you must first rush at the jar with Oatchi to break it, then throw 2 Pikmin at it.

Notes

Olimar's journal

When I gaze at this stone, I can feel my fate being forecasted. It must know what's going to happen to me! I'm sure it sees that I'll be hailed as a brilliant visionary and brave explorer when I return to Hocotate.

Sales pitch

More powerful than effort, more relentless than talent, LUCK is the true ruler of life. This mystical stone tests the path of luck. So, are you the true master of your life?

Schnauz's notes[edit]

This mysterious stone is quite heavy, but once it's rolled, it's relentless in its pursuit of fate. Six sides and six paths await you. Where the roll lands, so goes your life! Now, can you master the work of art that is your fate?

Olimar's notes[edit]

When I gaze at this stone, I can feel my fate being forecasted. It must know what's going to happen to me! I'm sure it sees that I'll be hailed as a brilliant visionary and brave explorer when I return to Hocotate.

Louie's notes[edit]

I'm not sure which is luckier, 1 or 6.
