Remembered Old Buddy

|Challenge Mode levels||Collector's Room, Secret Testing Range|
The Remembered Old Buddy (オヤジのおもいで?, lit.: "Elder's Memory") is a treasure found in Pikmin 2. It is the head of the real world Nintendo Entertainment System peripheral, the Robotic Operating Buddy (R.O.B.). This item is carried by a Raging Long Legs on the last (15) sublevel of the Hole of Heroes. Like some other treasures, if the player defeats the Raging Long Legs, but does not have enough Pikmin to carry the Remembered Old Buddy, which requires the strength of 30 Pikmin, it will change weight to match the player's army.
- The acronym for the Remembered Old Buddy, "R.O.B.", is the same as for the original Robotic Operating Buddy; the machine is commonly referred to as "R.O.B.".
- In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Captain Olimar encounters a very large R.O.B. unit in a cutscene.
- Olimar's journal entry could be referring to the TV show Captain N: The Game Master, in which R.O.B., among other Nintendo characters, made an appearance.
