The Spirit Flogger (社員の手本?, lit.: "Model Employee") is a treasure in Pikmin 2. This item is a rusty metallic gear. It is found on sublevel 2 of the Subterranean Complex. The Careening Dirigibugs and Swooping Snitchbugs in the sublevel may disrupt attempts to gather this treasure.

Notes

Olimar's journal

For a long time now, I've just been whiling away my life like a sprocket in a machine. Sometimes I just stop and wonder, am I happy with my life? Ack... I can't start thinking like that. I must concentrate on my mission!

Sales pitch

An item for CEOs throughout the solar system, this arcane shape bewitches the human heart. Give this to an employee to create a no-vacation-taking, no-bonus-needing work machine!

Trivia[edit]

  • The original Japanese name and all translations are a facetious reference to employees being regarded as insignificant 'gears' in a 'corporate machine' in popular culture, which is reflected in both Olimar's journal entry and the sales pitch.
  • The Hocotate ship mentions the "human heart" in the Sales Pitch. This is probably a translation-related mistake, and is not intended to imply the existence of real-world humans in any way.
