Troop Commander (ぐんだんを ひきいる モノ?) is the boss battle area in the Leafswirl Lagoon, where the fight against the Queen Shearwig takes place. It takes place in a very tall shaft, inside a cave-like space.
When the player completes Bed of Fallen Leaves, a cutscene plays inside the S.S. Dolphin II's cockpit, where the ship tells Olimar that it found both a large amount of Sparklium and a large beast. After the player finishes the area, a similar cutscene plays, with the ship announcing how it found a new, very hot sector, the Sweltering Parchlands, and warning Olimar not to get burned while exploring.
The starting section is a small room with flat terrain and a hole leading into a very long shaft. The end of the shaft cannot be reached until the boss is defeated – Olimar and the Pikmin just endlessly float down until then.
