The Cupid's Grenade (ヤブレカブレ?, lit.: "Desperation") appears as a treasure in Pikmin 2 and as a fruit in Pikmin 3. It is simply a cherry. In Pikmin 2, it is on the Snagret Hole, and in Pikmin 3, it appears three times in story mode, and several times in Mission Mode. This fruit plays a special role in both games' competitive two-player mode.

Collecting the treasure[edit]

The Cupid's Grenade in Pikmin 2 is found on sublevel 4 of the Snagret Hole, and is located in one of the many alcoves, near multiple Armored Cannon Beetle Larvae and other hazards.

Tropical Wilds[edit]

The Cupid's Grenade in the Tropical Wilds is on a small, raised island near the landing site. One Blue or Winged Pikmin is all that is needed to recover the cherry.

Distant Tundra (landing site)[edit]

This Cupid's Grenade is on top of a snowman near the landing site, and while it seems like it requires Yellow Pikmin to obtain, any Pikmin can reach the fruit.

Distant Tundra (northwest)[edit]

The second Cupid's Grenade in the Distant Tundra is next to an iron ball embedded within a snowdrift at the top of a hill, on the northwest of the main section of the area.

In battle modes[edit]

The Cupid's Grenade appears in 2-Player Battle and Bingo Battle.

While playing, a cherry spawns somewhere on the area every once in a while. It only takes one Pikmin to carry, and it is brought to the team's Onion. When a cherry is acquired, a roulette appears and the player who got the cherry will obtain a special item that will give an edge in battle. Up to five of these rewards can be stored at any given time.

Notes

Olimar's journal

What a perplexing plant... It appears to be carrying two different types of berries! They must be a rare species of fruit. Both have odd traits. One seems to be a suppressant, while the other is a stimulant. It's not easy to tell which is which. I'd better be careful with them. I should also warn Louie, or else he may try to bake these berries in a pie.

What a perplexing fruit... It appears to possess two curiously conflicting traits. At times, consuming it can bring forth wonderful feelings of love and affection. At other times, it can completely suppress all romantic inclinations. Its unpredictable nature means that I must be careful with it. I'll also warn Louie, or else he's liable to try baking it in a pie.

Sales pitch

Fate's tapestry has unraveled. Tomorrow weeps. Romance has fallen, love is madness. ...To mend the rift between two cross lovers, this is the ultimate weapon in Cupid's arsenal.

Brittany's notes

Yes! The people of Koppai will be thrilled that we found this sweet, entirely delicious food source. They'll adore us forever when we introduce them to the weapon of mass nutrition.

Golden Grenades are fruits found in the Mission Mode of Pikmin 3. They are golden versions of the Cupid's Grenade, and are worth a lot more. In Bingo Battle, they play a role similar to Cupid's Grenades in the fact that they give the player items via roulette. However, getting a Golden Grenade automatically awards five powers at once.
