The Persistence Machine (起き上がりマシン?, lit.: "Get-back-up Machine") is a treasure in Pikmin 4. It is a daruma doll that is missing its right eye. It is located in the Giant's Hearth.

Collecting the treasure[edit]

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

The Persistence Machine is sitting on the ground at the far eastern part of the Giant's Hearth. It is surrounded by bundles of dried plants, so you must throw a fire starter at it to free it. To collect this treasure, you must throw 12 Pikmin at it.


Schnauz's notes[edit]

What a device! Push it over, knock it down, kick it aside...and it always bounces back! How it manages to do so remains a mystery. But if ever you're feeling discouraged, give this machine a shove and rejoice in its return to being upright. May it inspire you to do the same!

Olimar's notes[edit]

I've never been the type to give up. No matter how many times I fall, I'll always get back up again. At first I thought I could practice alongside this machine, but its stubby body reminds me too much of the president. One glance at it, and I lose all motivation to continue.

Louie's notes[edit]

The shape itself is familiar, but that's it.
