- This article is about the large megaphone that allows the whistle to pluck Pikmin. For the small loudspeaker that increases the whistle's range, see Amplified Amplifier.
The Professional Noisemaker (やかましメカ?, lit.: "Noisy Mecha") is a giant red megaphone head, a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is found on the fifth and final sublevel of the Submerged Castle and is held by the wicked Waterwraith. When this treasure is retrieved, the Pluckaphone, part of the Exploration Kit, is made functional by the Hocotate ship. Like some other treasures, if the player defeats the Waterwraith, but does not have enough Pikmin to carry the Professional Noisemaker, which requires the strength of 15 Pikmin, it will change weight to match the player's army.
“Processing... How curious. The wraith completely vanished! But what was it?
Surface-object scans indicate the presence of a bright red component!
How insulting... This object's coloring is more eye-catching than my own hull!
I shall connect it to the alarm clock our esteemed president was so fond of.
Processing...complete. I have refitted both objects into a Pluckaphone.Now, simply blowing your whistle will inspire Pikmin sprouts to pop up out of the ground.”

- The Pluckaphone was originally going to be called "Pluck Megaphone", judging from the early English script left inside the final version of Pikmin 2.
