The Massage Machine (マッサージマシン?, lit.: "Massage Machine") is a ship part in Pikmin. It is found on an island near the Repair-type Bolt. Since Olimar's crash landing on the planet, he was relieved to get it, waiting to install it and use it to massage his lower back, which was in pain ever since the crash. In Pikmin 2, the Shower Room replaces its spot. Once collected, this part does not change the S.S. Dolphin's appearance.
Collecting the part
There is a bridge that has to be built before it can be collected. Defeat the Yellow Wollywogs so they won't attack the Blue Pikmin building it. Near the bridge is a trio of Shearwigs, so take them out before they can cause trouble. A Spotty Bulbear sleeps near the machine, but the Pikmin won't touch it while carrying the part. The bridge leads to a peninsula beside the Yellow Onion. It is possible for the Pikmin carrying the part to get stuck near the skulls, although adding more Pikmin usually solves this.
“I've found my Massage Machine!
Put this right down in the lower back area and let it go to work. I can't wait until I get this installed again, as my lower lumbar region has been paining me ever since the crash. Ahh, sweet relief...
I've been walking so much lately-I'm really looking forward to using this...”
