The Dapper Blob (ユウエンノミ?, lit.: "Elegant Fruit") is a fruit found in Pikmin 3. It is a mangosteen. It takes three Pikmin to carry this fruit, and it produces a full ration of juice. There are three Dapper Blobs found in the game's story mode, and in Mission Mode, the Dapper Blob appears in the Silver Lake Remix, The Rustyard, and the Forgotten Cove, being worth 50 points.
Collecting the fruit
The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies presented may not be the only ones or the best ones.
The Dapper Blob in the Distant Tundra.
The first one is found in the Distant Tundra. It is placed up on a high stump across the river from the landing site, and is guarded by a Joustmite. Pikmin can only reach it by climbing a nearby stick. Simply command the climbing Pikmin to swarm the fruit and they will carry it down the slide and back to the Drake. However, there is a lone Bearded Amprat along their carrying route, which will attempt to eat the carrying Pikmin if not dealt with.
The second one is located in the Tropical Wilds. It is buried in the ground on a high-up area near bridge fragments and a Swooping Snitchbug. To speed up the digging, it is recommended you kill the Snitchbug before trying to retrieve the fruit.
The final one is located in the Twilight River and is encased in a large crystal. It is located behind an electric gate and across a small body of water, along with two Yellow Wollywogs. Once the Wollywogs are dealt with, throw Rock Pikmin across the water and use them to shatter the crystal and harvest the fruit within.
- US version
“There's something compelling about this shapeless fruit with its tiny hat. It's like the fruit is heading to a fancy party full of debonair berries and upscale squashes! As a botanist, I have to say that that party sounds like the cutest thing that ever cuted!”
- European version
“A blob dressed up in a fancy bonnet. I imagine this suave little chap out hobnobbing with the movers and shakers of the botanical world. It's a pity we must eat you, little blob. Fear not though, your bonnet will make a fine addition to my wardrobe.”
