Pikmin 2/Unused & Early Treasures
This is a sub-page of Pikmin 2.
| Earliest Treasure Graphics|
Wow, these are old!
| Early Treasure Graphics|
These are still pretty old.
| Early Treasure Hoard|
More information on those early treasures.
| Treasure Timeline|
Supplemental reading material. The test will not be open book.
Unused Treasure Models
Unlike the above, these model files aren't used at all.
These can be found in every region's /Abe/Pellet folder. All but 2 are Exploration Kit items—seems there were 18 pieces of equipment planned.
|Model Name||Treasure Model||Notes|
|light_b||A second light power-up (the first is the Stellar Orb).|
The items in these containers are flat textures.
|map03||A third map item. The northeast and northwest|
pieces of the map were overwritten with
the globe items used in the final game.
|map04||A fourth map item! At one point, this game|
might have had 5 areas, just like the first game.
|pal_denchi_1||Given the treasure name, this was the first idea for|
localizing the National Hi-Top battery items.
Duracell was used in the final game.
|pal_denchi_1_pana||Same as above with a different battery type.|
|panszonic_alkali||The model's name differs from the szs file - it's in fue_c.|
This suggests it was originally another whistle upgrade.
|radar_c||A third radar item. The second radar item, radar_b,|
eventually transformed into the Napsack.
|rocket_pac||Either an early version of the Brute Knuckles,|
or something much more amazing.
Pal Folder Only
Early Treasure Models
These only exist in the PAL item folder of the NA and JP versions of the game. They were never cleaned out...thankfully.
|donuts_choco / donuts_ichigo||donutschoco / donutsichigo|
Early donut models. The frosting isn't as shiny / delicious looking, and the dough texture is, uh, not appetizing. At all.
|chocolate_ichigo / chocolate_white||chocoichigo / chocowhite|
The wrapping paper uses a different texture with text on it—"cho" for chocolate—and the models for the strawberry / white chocolate truffles aren't as smooth.
|Model Name||Icon||Treasure Model||Notes|
|broken_teala||Possibly broken in more ways than one.|
This image may be a bit off.
|diamond||None||A prototype of the game's toy gems.|
|donuts_white||None||A donut with vanilla frosting. The dough texture is...bad.|
|flower||None||A red flower. It looks a bit like a candypop bud.|
|GCDisc_luigi||A Luigi's Mansion GameCube disc! |
There are four GameCube discs present.
|GCDisc_mario||A Super Mario Sunshine GameCube disc. |
You cannot DISC GET.
|GCDisc_pikmin||A GameCube disc for...Pikmin?!|
If this were still in, the game might implode.
A duplicate exists under the name GCDisc.
It's the same, except the shader makes it appear brighter than normal.
|GCDisc_zelda||A GameCube disc for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. |
Watch out for Moblins!
|gear01||None||A funky-looking prototype of the game's gear treasures.|
|oukan||An unused bottle cap item.|
The icon looks completely different.
|sensya06||None||It's a turret from a toy tank with the number 14 on one side, |
and the number 144 on the other. It closely resembles the turret
of the German "Panther" tank from WW2, though the barrel of
the gun was broken off.
|yoyo||None||A blue yo-yo. Might be an early model of|
yoyo_blue, before it was replaced with a different item.
Model Name: Indirect_test
This isn't a treasure at all, though it is in the item folder. It's a model used to test the game's indirect object lighting.
These models can be found in the PAL item folder of the NA and JP versions of the game. These models were never worked on, though the file names give clues as to what they would have been.
There are four types of models:
- Blue: Small object. 6-sided model, 64x64 model name texture, 32x32 model base texture.
- Green: Medium-sized object. 10-sided model, 64x64 model name texture, 128x128 model base texture.
- Yellow: Large object. 12-sided model, 128x128 model name texture, 64x64 model base texture.
- Red: Huge object. 14-sided model, 128x128 model name texture, 128x128 model base texture.
