A group of Red Pikmin carrying some nuggets.

Nuggets (キンカイ?) are gold resources found in Pikmin 3 that come in piles, and are exclusive to Mission Mode and Side Stories. Each one is worth Poko icon.png × 3, so multiplying the number by 3 yields how many Pokos come from each pile. As long as Pikmin are left alone while collecting Nuggets, they will continue to return to the pile, even after all nuggets have been collected. A number displays on top signifying how many remain.

If Pikmin are called back while in the process of carrying a nugget, the Pikmin will go back to following the leader and the nugget will disappear and go back to the pile.
