The clipboard is an obstacle found a few times in Pikmin 3. It is a wooden board with a pink handle on it, and it is connected to the terrain by a hinge. It can be lifted by the handle, where it either opens something concealed, or serves as a bridge to cross a gap with. Eight Winged Pikmin are required to lift a clipboard. When they finish lifting it, they will naturally follow a path back to the leader, but if they are whistled before reaching the leader, they will use the regular path-finding algorithm, which could result in them getting stuck behind the newly-lifted clipboard. Hence, it is advised to not whistle the Pikmin after they have finished lifting the board.
- Two clipboards appear on the plateau near the Tremendous Sniffer. Under the northern one are 15 red fragments; under the southern one are 8 Dwarf Orange Bulborbs.
- Near the end of the cave, there is a clipboard that acts as a shortcut to cross a gap.
