This article is about the vacuum tube in Subterranean Complex sublevel 6. For other uses, see vacuum tube.

The Vacuum Processor (バキューム・プロセッサー?, lit.: "Vacuum Processor") is a treasure in Pikmin 2 based on a real-life vacuum tube. The text on its side reads:

Far Eastern
Made in JAPAN

It is located in the Subterranean Complex, sublevel six. The main hazards there are poison, bomb-rocks, and electricity, all in the same room. Pick off enemies closest to where the leaders begin at first, gradually clearing the room to be able to collect the treasure. Purple Pikmin can be used to quickly overturn all the Anode Beetles so the Pikmin can attack the Careening Dirigibugs flying above.


Olimar's journal

We recently found all sorts of mechanical parts scattered around a cave. The walls and floor were constructed of solid steel. Perhaps it was once a great military fortress? I decided to name it the Subterranean Complex.

Sales pitch

Harnessing the absence of air, this environmentally friendly computer is incredibly fast. A predisposition to implosion is a bit of a minus, however.
