The Hearty Container (こころの器?, lit.: "Heart Container") is a treasure in Pikmin 4 located in the Plunder Palace. It is a heart shaped thumbprint cookie with a nectarine jam-based filling in the center.

Collecting the treasureEdit

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

The Hearty Container is at the northern corner of sublevel 5 of the Plunder Palace, next to the Love's Fortune Cookie. To collect it, you must throw 3 Pikmin at it. A nearby Giant Breadbug may attempt to steal it, in which case you will need to either damage it or best it in tug-of-war.


Schnauz's notesEdit

The shape of this treasure represents perhaps the most important things there are in the universe. Life and love. If you pour your heart into this cookie and give it to someone you care about, it's sure to have a powerful effect on them.

Olimar's notesEdit

In my line of work, encountering tough situations and feeling like your life is in danger is all a part of the job. But something about this cookie makes me feel like I have the strength to make it through. Like I have an extra heart if my first one runs out.

Louie's notesEdit

If you break it in half first, it's much easier to eat.


  • Name: The Hearty Container's name is a reference to Heart Containers from the The Legend of Zelda series. Olimar's notes even allude to this connection by associating them similarly to extra health in the Zelda series.
  • Internal name: The Hearty Container's internal name is YOSHICOOKIEE as the treasure's design is based off of a cookie type from the game Yoshi's Cookie.
