A Bouncy Mushroom in the Distant Tundra, viewed from above.
A Bouncy Mushroom in Pikmin 3, a tool that gives access to certain sections of areas.

Some interactive objects in the Pikmin games serve as tools to help the player achieve tasks. They might eliminate an obstacle, give access to a section of an area, or contain a useful item. Some tools require multiple Pikmin to work together to use them. Although the main purpose of these objects is to help the player achieve some goal, some of them may actually be a minor obstruction until they are used properly, making them obstacles themselves in a way.
