Notes

Olimar's journal

This rare, alien metal doesn't exist on Hocotate. When I gaze at it, I'm gripped with an overpowering sense of greed. On Hocotate, there is a valuable metal with a stunning sheen that has a similar effect. Perhaps this alluring metal is responsible for many of this planet's woes.

Trivia[edit]

  • According to Olimar in his notes, he notes that the treasure is actually made out of an unknown metal and compares it to a valuable metal with a stunning sheen that has a similar effect, which is implied to be gold. As the treasure itself is evidently a golden dollar, this would suggest that the coin itself is made out of an alloy that resembles gold, such as brass.
  • This treasure weighs the same as the Mirrored Element, despite gold weighing more than silver.
