The Slapstick Crescent (カワスベール) is a fruit in Pikmin 3. It is a banana found in the Tropical Wilds, buried. It produces 2 and a half cups of juice, equivalent to a boss fruit. In Mission Mode, this fruit is found in the Fortress of Festivity, where there are a whopping four of them. There they are worth 300 Pokos each when returned to the SPERO.

Collecting the fruit[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies presented may not be the only ones or the best ones.

In the Tropical Wilds, you must maneuver to the area containing the seesaw blocks. Nearby, there should be a large body of water. On land, there are two Fiery Blowhogs which should be killed. In the water, there will be a Peckish Aristocrab. This will need to be killed as it will be very troublesome for retrieving the fruit if it is still alive. After that, you will reach a dry spot with a small part of the fruit sticking out the ground. You can then set the Pikmin to start digging it up. It is recommended to do this early in the day and to bring about 30-40 Blue Pikmin to speed up digging as the Slapstick Crescent will take a very long time to dig up. Alternatively, activating a bomb rock next to the fruit will cause it to instantly become unearthed. This works with all fruits, but it is most valuable with this fruit, especially for speedruns, as it it very time-consuming to unearth it and retrieve it otherwise.


Brittany's notes

US version US version
Oh my gosh but this is delicious! So sweet and comforting... I can imagine a little kid eating just gobs of these things. They'll have to be careful around the inedible peel, though. It's extremely slippery and could be a safety hazard.
European version European version
Gosh, this is delicious! Alph's gone absolutely bananas over this...thing. The peel seems quite slippery. But how slippery, I wonder? Slippery enough to dispatch a person? How about a fully-grown man with a moustache? I must find the interests of science.

  • "Slapstick" is a form of comedy with exaggerated physical actions, in which the banana is often known for (banana peel slips). "Crescent" refers to its curved "C"-like shape.
  • The Slapstick Crescent and the Pocked Airhead are the only fruits that aren't given by a boss which give 2.5 bottles of juice.
  • The European text for Brittany's log mentions that "Alph gone absolutely bananas". This indicates that Kopaites might have some idea of what a banana is, or have a similar expression or object in their language, that is different from a real world banana.
