The Patience Tester is a treasure in Pikmin 2 and is actually a can of Sun Luck water chestnuts. It is found on Sublevel 3 of the Citadel of Spiders, and is usually hidden in an alcove, sometimes blocked by a wall. There are a few Anode Beetles and Swooping Snitchbugs that may hinder the Pikmin when recovering the treasure. In the European version, it is located it the Hole of Heroes inside the Fiery Bulblax.

Exclusively in the US Wii version of the game, Olimar's journal on this treasure contains a copy of the GameCube European text for the Permanent Container, which is one of the European-exclusive treasures characterized with descriptions with written mistakes.

Just looking at this sealed container makes me want to open it up! But opening it will decrease its value on the alien antiquities market. Maybe I'll just use my imaginary can opener and pretend to open it instead.

When I see a closed container, I cannot help myself,  [sic]I feel like I must open it and see what's inside. But when opening it, it could lose it's[sic] value. I guess I'll just have to use my imagination.

Sales pitch

This calls out to be opened, peeked inside, and tasted. This temptation-filled item is perfect for those who wish to test the strength of their resolve.
