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 a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is the severed head of a rubber duck, and is found in sublevel 2 of the Citadel of Spiders. Captain Olimar thinks this treasure is a great work of art, while paradoxically considering the very similar 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.
