The Slapstick Crescent (カワスベール?, lit.: "Slippery Peel") is a fruit in Pikmin 3 and a treasure in Pikmin 4. It is a banana, and in Pikmin 3, is found buried in the Tropical Wilds. It produces 2 and a half bottles of juice (one and a quarter in Ultra-Spicy mode), similar to a boss fruit. In Pikmin 4, it has a sticker on with a generic banana brand, and appears in the Serene Shores and Giant's Hearth.
Collecting the fruit
The following article or section contains guides.
In the Tropical Wilds, first go to the northern 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 is very time-consuming to unearth it and retrieve it otherwise.
Collecting the treasure
The following article or section contains guides.
There is a Slapstick Crescent on a small ledge at the easternmost lake of the overworld, a bit to the northeast of the lake's center. It is submerged during high tide and exposed during low tide. To collect this treasure, you must throw 15 Blue Pikmin at it.
There is a Slapstick Crescent hanging from a cobweb to the northeast of the grill at the center of the area. It is guarded by two Mama Sheargrubs, which should be defeated before attempting to collect it. To collect this treasure, you must throw 15 Pikmin at it.

- 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's gone absolutely bananas". This indicates that Koppaites 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.
- Modern day bananas, primarily Cavendish, do not have seeds and are technically sterile. This would make collecting the fruit pointless, as the Koppaites would not be able to extract any seeds from it to cultivate.
- Despite this, the Slapstick Crescent is still required for the best ending, implying that the Koppaites did extract seeds from the banana or else found a way to duplicate it.
- The sticker on the Slapstick Crescent in Pikmin 4 is the same one seen on certain Banana Decor Pikmin in Pikmin Bloom.
