The Heroine's Tear (ハナシズクノミ?, lit.: "Fruit of Dripping Nose") is a fruit in Pikmin 3 and a treasure in Pikmin 4. It is a red mango. In Pikmin 3's Story Mode, the only Heroine's Tear can be found by defeating the Vehemoth Phosbat, the boss of the Distant Tundra. It takes 10 Pikmin to carry and provides two and a half bottles (one and a quarter in Ultra-Spicy mode) of yellow juice. In Pikmin 4, it can be found in the overworld of the Serene Shores and Primordial Thicket, as well as the Cavern for a King.
Collecting the fruit
The following article or section contains guides.
- See also: Vehemoth Phosbat strategy.
The Heroine's Tear drops from the ceiling of a cave after defeating the Vehemoth Phosbat. It takes 10 Pikmin to carry. Do note that the paper bag outside of the Phosbat's arena must be pushed down if the fruit is to be collected. Along the route back is a Joustmite, a Bearded Amprat, and some Skeeterskates. The Skeeterskates may be an issue, since you likely do not have Blue Pikmin, but make sure that the Joustmite and the Bearded Amprat are defeated, as they will likely eat your Pikmin if they are not defeated.
Collecting the treasure
The following article or section contains guides.
There is a Heroine's Tear completely buried at the northern part of the overworld near a ledge. To access it, the Engulfed Castle must be completed first to grant access to the northwestern part of the area; the treasure can then be found on the easternmost alcove, after a geyser. It can be located with the Treasure Gauge or by searching for treasure with Oatchi. It is guarded by a Hermit Crawmad, which should be defeated before attempting to collect it. To collect this treasure, you must throw 12 Pikmin in its vicinity.
There is a Heroine's Tear engulfed in a sticky mold west of the center of the overworld. To collect this treasure, you must clear out the mushrooms, causing the treasure to emerge from the ground. Then, throw 12 Pikmin at it.
Cavern for a King
There is a Heroine's Tear sitting atop a platform near the center of sublevel 19 of the Cavern for a King. To collect this treasure, you must throw 12 Pikmin at it. It can also be knocked down with a rush from Oatchi.
If the player leaves the Distant Tundra without collecting the Heroine's Tear, then comes back with Winged Pikmin, a glitch may occur. If Winged Pikmin are ordered to carry the fruit back, they will lift it up just a little bit too high to get through the exit to the cave in which the Vehemoth Phosbat is fought. They will get stuck right at this point, and while in this state they cannot be whistled back. More Winged Pikmin can be added to the fruit, but this will do nothing. The fruit and the Pikmin will remain stuck for the rest of the day, and the item will not be able to be retrieved until the next day.
