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 fifteenth and final 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 thirty Pikmin, it will change weight to match the player's army.
The Remembered Old Buddy in the Hole of Heroes.
- 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 DIC Entertainment animated series Captain N: The Game Master, in which R.O.B., among other Nintendo Entertainment System characters, appeared in.
