The Unknown Merit (知らざれる功?, lit.: "Unknown Merit") is a treasure found in Pikmin 2. It is actually a wadōkaichin coin (和同開珎), which is an old piece of Japanese currency. It is found in sublevel 4 of the Bulblax Kingdom inside the body of a Wollywog that falls from the sky. There are electrical wires nearby that may hinder progress.


Olimar's journal

Detailed analysis has revealed that this artifact is extremely ancient. It's obviously an important archeological discovery, but the salesman in me is more interested in its monetary value! Maybe I'll get the best of both worlds by selling it to a museum.

Sales pitch

Decades of toil with nose to the grindstone. Insulting orders swallowed without a hiccup. Such is the life of a salaried man. His name will not be remembered. His family will not understand. But if the results bear out his efforts, that is enough. Now, nose to the grindstone, drone!
