The Pink Menace (オーバーキル・レッド?, lit.: "Overkill Red") is a treasure found in the Valley of Repose in Pikmin 2. The Pink Menace is actually a plastic, gold-colored ring set with a pink heart.

Collecting the treasure[edit]

The strategies presented may not be the only ones or the best ones.

Make sure you have defeated the Red Bulborb and the Dwarf Red Bulborb in the area, and drained the lake. Before sending Whites to dig the treasure up, defeat the Burrowing Snagret that may attack the Pikmin when they get to the treasure. The treasure is buried, so White Pikmin are needed to dig it up.


Olimar's journal

I could never say this within earshot of the ship, but years of hard use have taken their toll. For one thing, the thermostat is broken. The temperature in the cockpit can fluctuate wildly between sweltering heat and frigid cold. The humid heat is awful, but the bone-chilling cold is even worse. Looking at this heart-warming gem gives me the strength to endure the elements.

Sales pitch

This gem holds the shape of the universal symbol of love, yet its cut and light-refracting abilities make it a menacing super-weapon in disguise! It could be used to create a horrifying, doomsday death ray...or something even worse. We peaceful machines live in eternal fear of the ability of living beings to turn anything into a weapon.



  • The sales pitch states that this is a super weapon in disguise. This is possibly a reference to old spy movies, where these spies could have powerful weapons almost anywhere on their bodies.
