Since this subject has no official name, the name Gas pipe is conjectural.

The gas pipes are hazard sources from Pikmin 2. As the name would indicate, they are small tubes that emit a steady stream of poison gas. They can usually be found in caves, by themselves, although some are present in the overworld as well, commonly inside bramble gates or bridges.
The pipes can be taken down with non-White Pikmin as well. For this, one must throw a Pikmin directly onto the pipe. Although uncommon, the Pikmin will sometimes land a hit before starting to choke. From this point, the Pikmin can just be whistled back, and the cycle can repeat until eventually the pipe is gone. It's also possible to bait a Gatling Groink into attacking the pipes, which will destroy them. This can only be done on the gate after the lake in the Wistful Wild.
On the surface of areas, the gas pipes that are placed inside gates or bridges function as a means of only allowing White Pikmin to be used to break down the obstacle. For gates, however, the top two thirds can still be latched-on to by thrown Pikmin, regardless of type. If the player hasn't unlocked White Pikmin yet, it will be impossible to cause damage to the gates. The exception to this is the ones found in the Wistful Wild: without White Pikmin, the gas pipes can still be destroyed with a Gatling Groink, and to be able to destroy the gates afterwards, the player has to end the current day or enter a cave (in order for the gas pipes to disappear).
- Valley of Repose: Two are inside of a white bramble gate leading to the Subterranean Complex.
- Awakening Wood: The bramble gates near the Survey Chart and the White Flower Garden both have two gas pipes inside of them, as does the bridge leading to the Snagret Hole.
- Perplexing Pool: The white bramble gate blocking off the Yellow Pikmin has two gas pipes in it.
- Wistful Wild: The two black bramble gates blocking off the section with the Seed of Greed and the Dream Den both have two gas pipes inside of them.
