The Tandem Sword is a treasure in Hey! Pikmin. It is actually a pair of scissors with a light-blue handle. It is about seven times the length of Captain Olimar, and the handle is three times his height. Olimar mistakes the treasure as a weapon because of its cutting properties.
Collecting the treasure
After defeating the Crystalline Crushblat, climbing down a vine will put you between two iron blocks, with the one on the left being pushed by a Stony Flint Beetle. You should push the block on the right, then wait for the Beetle to push its block all the way to the right. The block will hole up a gap, allowing you access with your Pikmin. It will take all twelve Pikmin you should have at this point to carry the treasure off of it its platform.
Hey! Pikmin logs
“This ancient weapon required two soldiers to operate. They would maneuver it around an enemy then run swiftly toward each other to bring the deadly blades together. Urk... I'm reminded of the pickle I often found myself in. "We need to repair the house!" "I'm afraid we have to make cutbacks at this company." Two blades of a deadly weapon indeed.”
