The Brute Knuckles (鉄人のコブシ?, lit.: "Iron Man's Fist") is one of the treasures found in Pikmin 2. It is a toy punching glove that is found inside one of the four Mamutas in the fifth sublevel of the Frontier Cavern.

Collecting the treasureEdit

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

Before collecting it, defeat all the Mamutas in the area so they won't harm the leaders or plant the Pikmin as the treasure is being carried back to the Pod. Make sure the Hydro Dweevils are gone so they won't carry the treasure on their backs. After the Research Pod cashes in the Brute Knuckles, the leaders receive the Rocket Fist ability.

Notes

Ship's dialogs

  GameCube

Processing... How strange. This atypical metal object came from inside that bizarre being.

...It appears to be a giant metal hand. Perhaps it is an ancient work of art?


This object seems to replicate a humanoid fist. A glove much like it once lay in my junk hold...

...And here is that very glove! I have just found the missing Rocket Punch[sic] in my junk hold!

Tap   three times to launch it! One, two, PUNCH!!!

Olimar's journal

Uncharted planets like this one are often teeming with hazardous fauna. The Pikmin are usually nearby to defend me, but there are times when I need to lay down the law with my own hands. For example, if a creature were to try to eat me, I'd have to beat it down.

...I dream about that all the time...

Sales pitch

In a plume of flame, this steel fist flies and smashes its target to bits...but the recoil is severe. (Captain Olimar suffers from shoulder pain, so he uses it without the rocket booster.)
