The Face Wrinkler (トキメキノミ Tokimeki no Mi, lit. "Throbbing Fruit") is a common fruit found in Pikmin 3. It's a lemon that is worth 70 pokos. It fills one and a half containers of juice.


Brittany's American Comments

"This one is so sour that one bite makes my whole face want to climb into my mouth and pull it back out. It's high in Piktamin U, though, so I guess I'll try adding small amounts of the juice to other food. Better food."

Brittany's European Notes

"This fruit is so sour that one bite makes my whole face want to climb into my mouth to pull it back out. The juice is high on Piktamin U, though, so I suppose I'll try adding small amounts of it to other food. Other, more appetising food."

How to Obtain

There are a total of Face Wrinklers in the game.

Garden of Hope

The first one is found during the tutorial in the Garden of Hope, where the player is taught how to throw and switch captains. Simply throw Brittany and 5 Pikmin up onto the higher ledge so they can reach it.

Tropical Wilds

The second one is found buried in the sand near the Shaggy Long Legs arena and the body of water with some Wogpoles. Simply have Yellow Pikmin dig it up, or use Bomb Rocks to instantly unearth it.

Distant Tundra

The final Face Wrinkler is found on a small ledge behind a large stump with a Dapper Blob on top. It can be harvested with either Blue Pikmin, which will carry it through the water, but this will require the player to remove a nearby Dirt Wall first. Alternatively, the player can just swarm it with Winged Pikmin, who will fly it directly to the Drake.
