The Strife Monolith (勝負石?) is a treasure found in the game Pikmin 2. It is actually a Mahjong tile, the 7 of circles. It is found on sublevel 3 of the Hole of Beasts, and is hidden within the cavity of a broken cinder block built into the wall. There are a few fire geysers along the way that may hinder the Pikmin's progress.
“Computers view the world in ones and zeros, but my people are different. Our world isn't simply black or white, right or wrong. Everybody is different. Maybe one day the ship will understand that. And maybe one day it won't give me sass when I ask it to collect a slimy specimen.”
“The world is divided into two groups: ones and zeros. Are you in the winning or losing group? If you love the thrill of the game, but do not care for the outcome, then this stone is for you! It symbolizes both victory and defeat. What a concept.”
