The Mechanical Harp (Memory Song) is a treasure in Pikmin 4. It is a music box that, when carried or interacted with in the Treasure Catalog, plays the main theme of Pikmin 3. Underneath its bottom is an engraving that reads "H13.001026", which stands for Heisei 13 October 26, the release date for Pikmin using the Japanese era calendar scheme that corresponds to October 26th, 2001 in the Gregorian calendar.

Collecting the treasure[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

It is on a ledge at the northeastern section of the Blossoming Arcadia. It is too high to be reached by most Pikmin and cannot be knocked down with a rush from Oatchi, meaning Yellow Pikmin are recommended for collecting it. To collect this treasure, you can throw 7 Yellow Pikmin at it. Alternatively, using the gyro controls, you can throw any Pikmin up the high ledge.


Schnauz's notes[edit]

This device plays a beautiful melody that elicits feelings of nostalgia. There's something so familiar about it, and yet at the same time, it's completely unknown. Mysterious, to be sure!

Olimar's notes[edit]

Strange... Despite its calming tones, something about this melody makes my palms sweat and sends shivers up my spine. It's as if it's sending me a warning about unexpected troubles in the future...

Louie's notes[edit]

This would be the perfect musical accompaniment to a cup of fruit juice.

  • Olimar's notes about "shivers" and a "warning" are likely referring to his run-in with the Plasm Wraith, the final boss of Pikmin 3 that captured and imprisoned him.
    • By extension, his phrasing in future tense suggests the events of Pikmin 3 have not yet happened as of Pikmin 4.
  • Louie believes that the main theme of Pikmin 3 would be perfect to listen to while drinking juice. This is presumably a reference to that game's gameplay loop, in which the protagonists must survive by drinking juice from the fruits they gather over the course of the game.
