This article is about the treasure which is just the head of a rubber duck. For the full body treasure, see Rubber Ugly.

The Paradoxical Enigma (超存在?, lit.: "Super Existence") is the cleanly severed head of a rubber duck and a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is found on the second sublevel of the Citadel of Spiders. It may be guarded by Fiery Dweevils or Yellow Wollywogs. It should be noted that while Captain Olimar apparently thinks this is a great work of art, he considers the Rubber Ugly an atrocity.


Olimar's journal

I'm not just an intergalactic space captain... I'm also an artist. I see the inner beauty in everything. Some things other people call ugly and boring, I find intellectually stimulating and aesthetically pleasing. It's true... I'm sophisticated like that.

Sales pitch

This is both the pinnacle of beauty and the nadir of ugliness, the definition of ugly beauty. No word for this state exists, but my data banks indicate that "bugly" will suffice.
