The Fortified Delicacy (海怪珍味マキマキ?, lit.: "Mysterious Makimaki Sea Delicacy") is a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is a shell from a snail called Turbo sazae (sometimes known as Turbo cornutus), and is found above-ground in the Perplexing Pool.

Collecting the treasureEdit

Location of the Fortified Delicacy.

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

To get it, first the clog on top of the Shower Room needs to be destroyed. This makes it possible for White Pikmin to dig up the treasure near one of the corners in the tiled area. Multiple Yellow Wollywogs block the path from the treasure's location to the Hocotate ship, and they should be defeated before collecting the treasure.


Olimar's journal

I wonder what's become of the creature this shell was defending. Enigmas like this always make me curious. Was it tasty? Maybe I should find one and give it a taste? All in the name of science and exploration, of course...

Sales pitch

A twisted shell whose surface is covered in spikes. The durable housing protects a meal that is said to define deliciousness. (Where the meal went is known only to Captain Olimar's crew.)
