The Wayward Moon (オミマイノミ?, lit.: "Fruit of Meeting a Patient in the Hospital") is a fruit in Pikmin 3. It is a melon found once in Story Mode, in the Garden of Hope. It is worth 3 total bottles of juice (one and a half in Ultra-Spicy mode), the most out of any fruit, tied with the Crimson Banquet. It is spat out by the Quaggled Mireclops after its defeat, along with Louie. In Mission Mode, it appears in Beastly Caverns, located to the immediate southeast of the starting area. Its value is Texture used for the Poko in Pikmin 3. × 1000, the most out of any whole fruit (again, tied with the Crimson Banquet).

The leaders seem amazed by its texture, and as shown in a secret video, Louie is fond of the smell. Although similar to a real life cantaloupe, it is simply a Japanese melon due to the object's internal name (melon) and the color of its juice.

Collecting the fruit[edit]

The Wayward Moon is dropped by the Quaggled Mireclops. Since the Hocotatian is the object of most importance, send the Hocotatian ahead before trying to collect this fruit. It is the heaviest whole fruit in the game, so it is advised to put the maximum of 30 Pikmin on it, and to refrain from letting Winged Pikmin carry it, as Winged Pikmin carry objects slower. All enemies in the way of the carrying path should have been taken out, but there might be a Dwarf Bulborb on the way back.


Brittany's notes

US version icon.png US version
Once you get past the tough, cratered exterior, this fruit has a refined, almost delicate flavor. It kind of reminds me of the captain, except he's all exterior.
European version icon.png European version
Once you get past the coarse, cratered exterior you'll find that this fruit is delicate and sweet on the inside. That's probably how the Captain sees himself, actually. Personally I think the resemblance ends at the coarse, cratered part.
