Remembered Old Buddy
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.
“I can't believe I had the fortune to find this thing buried underground! It looks like a component of a huge mechanical doll. It looks just like a part from a robot in a cartoon I used to watch as a kid! How nostalgic. This futuristic machine makes me feel like I've traveled back in time!”
“This relic rose directly from the sands of time! Its shape invokes waves of sweet nostalgia. Middle-aged men throughout the universe harken back to their youth and grin... They pass on their tales to the next generation, filling them with adventure and romance!”
