Collecting the fruit[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies presented may not be the only ones or the best ones.

Garden of Hope[edit]

The Face Wrinkler in the Garden of Hope is found as part of the game's tutorial, where the player is taught how to throw and switch between leaders. Simply throw Brittany and 5 Pikmin up onto the higher ledge so they can reach the fruit.

Tropical Wilds[edit]

The Face Wrinkler in the Tropical Wilds is found buried in the sand near the Shaggy Long Legs' arena and the body of water with some Wogpoles. Simply have some Pikmin dig it up, or use bomb rocks to instantly unearth it. A pair of Skutterchucks and a Whiptongue Bulborb are present along the route back to the Drake; it is advised they are defeated before the Face Wrinkler is collected.

Distant Tundra[edit]

The Face Wrinkler in the Distant Tundra is found on a small ledge behind a large stump with a Dapper Blob on top. It can be harvested with Blue Pikmin, which will carry it through the water, but this will require you to remove a nearby dirt wall first, and later clearing the nearby pond of all enemies. If you don't, the Blue Pikmin will take a longer route back involving some Joustmites. Alternatively, it can be carried with Winged Pikmin by charging them onto it, who will then carry it directly to the Drake.

Notes

Brittany's notes

US version US version
This fruit is so sour that one bite makes my whole face want to climb into my mouth and pull it back out. It's high in Piktamin U, though, so I guess I'll try adding small amounts of the juice to other food. Better food.
