The Courage Reactor is actually a Duracell D battery. It is the first treasure that can be collected in Pikmin 2, and is found partially buried in the Valley of Repose. Upon retrieval, the ship is satisfied with the day's work and the first day is completed. Despite being found by Louie, both Olimar and Louie are needed to collect this.
The text on the side contains a paragraph informing the user that the battery cannot be recharged, and that the polarity of the battery should be respected. These instructions are written in Italian, French, German and English, in that order. The full text reads:
- Inserire correttamente. Non ricaricare.
- Respecter les polarités + et -. Ne pas
- recharger. Auf richtige Polarität achten.
- Nicht wiederaufladbar. Connect correctly.
- Do not recharge. MADE IN EC
- ALKALINE 1,5V
- MN0000 LR6
In the Japanese version of Pikmin 2, this treasure's equivalent is the Love and Courage Reactor, which is a "National Hi-Top" battery, a Japanese brand of battery. Strangely, on the website supporting the Play it on the Wii version for US, it also shows a "National Hi-Top" battery.
Collecting the treasure
To retrieve this treasure, both Olimar and Louie are needed: start by gathering all the pellets in the area and the Dwarf Red Bulborb. After obtaining 20 Pikmin, have them dig it out of the ground and carry it to the ship.
