The Empty Vase (すかんぴんツボ?, lit.: "Destitute Vase") is a treasure in Pikmin 4 located in the Hectic Hollows. It is actually the bottom half of a matryoshka doll.

Collecting the treasureEdit

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

It is stuck in a hydro jelly on the southern alcove of sublevel 1 of the Hectic Hollows, meaning that Ice Pikmin are required to collect this treasure. To bring it back, you must first burst the hydro jelly, then lower the paper bag nearby, and finally throw 10 Pikmin at it. The nearby Dwarf Bulborbs should be taken care of to not cause problems.


Schnauz's notesEdit

Look at this enormous vase. Like a parent who's given too much to a child, it's completely empty. Is this all that remains of a sad story? Maybe. Maybe not. Only that parent can say whether giving so much brought them disappointment...or the greatest joy.

Olimar's notesEdit

Once you have children, money starts disappearing faster than you can save it. My wife always says, "If it's for the children, it's worth it." I admire her enormous heart... Still, every year it seems like the children get more and more expensive.

Louie's notesEdit

Walking on the rim of this object is a thrilling yet difficult challenge.
