The Armored Nut (ヒラノミ) is a small acorn found in Pikmin 2, that falls under the Xenoflora Series of Pikmin Treasures. It is found in the Wistful Wild inside one of the three Creeping Chrysanthemum. The Creeping Chrysanthemum that is nearest to the Hole of Heroes has the Armored Nut, which interestingly coincides with the original location of the dormant Red Onion at The Impact Site in Pikmin. Olimar notices this in his journal for this treasure but it may be simply coincidental.
"I've never tasted a nut quite like this. It's difficult to explain, but it tastes like...sorrow.
PS: I can't shake the feeling that I've been here before. Aha! This must be the exact spot where I crash-landed last time!"
"This common, ordinary nut somehow reminds me of myself and fills me with sadness."
- As mentioned in Olimar's Journal, the Armored Nut is found in the place where the S.S. Dolphin crashes and lands in the Impact Site.
- The sorrow in this nut could possibly be a philosophical meaning about the sorrow Olimar felt when he crashed and never thought he'd return.
