After a doorway, the player can find an iron block that must be placed under another doorway, in order for Olimar to go through it. On the other side, the player can find the treasure, which is partially buried.


Hey! Pikmin logs

Sometimes I look so haggard and drained when coming back from an expedition that the Pikmin keep their distance and the S.S. Dolphin II seems wary of addressing me. Fortunately, now I have this device. All I have to do is stand in front of it and I feel the urge to smile. But on occasion, trying to force a smile tires me out, and I'm back to square one.



  • The back side of this treasure, only viewable in the Treasure Log by rotating it, shows several Red Pikmin on the screen looking at the camera. This could imply that a photograph was taken of the Pikmin as the treasure was being collected, and may be an Easter egg.
