The Essence of Despair (グリーン・アイ?, lit.: "Green Eye") is a treasure in Pikmin 2, found on the second sublevel of the Cavern of Chaos. This jewel is dropped by one of three Fiery Bulblaxes, so Red Pikmin are a must when retrieving it. This treasure is actually an emerald mounted on a silver circle, and it resembles the Sagittarius and Libra from Pikmin in that respect.


Olimar's journal

I'm captivated by this treasure's unique glimmer. I found it in a breathtaking complex of caverns. I'm glad to see I'm already enjoying the fruits of my labor.

Sales pitch

Long ago, evil forces clashed with the forces of justice... The evil was defeated and locked away in this stone. (Am I evil for making up such a tale? Justice, please look the other way!)
