The Child of the Earth (大地の息子?, lit.: "Son of the Earth") is a treasure found in Pikmin 2. It is found in Sublevel 3 of the Cavern of Chaos buried underground. White Pikmin are needed to dig it up. The Child of the Earth is actually a potato. There are multiple Creeping Chrysanthemums and Mamutas which will disturb you if you carry The Child of the Earth back to the pod too early.


Olimar's journal

Today, buried in a deep hole, I found a vegetable that I'd never seen before. This dark-dwelling vegetable stores all of its nutritious energy in its roots. The ship named it Child of the Earth, and I think it's fitting.

Sales pitch

This plant has grown fat on the blessings of the land. Its nutritional value must be high!

  • Although Olimar claims he has never seen a potato before, it is clear that potatoes are known to Hocotatians, given that Louie's notes for the Emperor Bulblax mention the vegetable[1]. It is, however, possible that potatoes on Hocotate are different from those on Earth.
  • The name is likely a reference to the French word for potato, pomme de terre, which translates to "apple of the Earth".


  1. ^ To prep the tongue for cooking, marinate in olive oil and chop into cubes. Stir in a pot with carrots, potatoes, and chives, cover, and simmer over low heat for several hours. Accompany this mouthwatering, rustic stew with a hearty roll. – Louie in Louie's notes for the Emperor Bulblax
