The Flame of Tomorrow is a treasure in Pikmin 2, which is actually a container of "Bowser Breath" brand matches (Bowser being the main antagonist of Nintendo's Mario series), which roll around when the box is moved. In Japan, it is the "Sun Breath". It is found on Sublevel 4 of the Citadel of Spiders, occurring in one of a few specific places, such as in an alcove or a pipe. A few Hermit Crawmads and Water Dumples may get in the way, so make sure they've been defeated before retrieving the treasure. One side of this box states 'TEL 555-TROOPAS'.


Olimar's Journal

"From the beginning of time, my people have searched for a perfectly clean, endlessly renewable energy source. Unfortunately, we've never found anything close to it. Rubbing these two objects together seems to produce fire. Maybe this is the long-lost energy source we've always been searching for?"

Sales Pitch

"Is this the flame of hope that spawned humanoid civilization? Hocotate needs new energy sources, and this could be a fine canidate. Will machines like me be powered by this someday?"


  • The number on the side of the box 'TEL 555-TROOPAS' is most likely a 'directory' for Bowser's Army in the Mario franchise. 555 is a directory assistant area code number, and TROOPAS means Koopa Troopas, a major force in Bowser's Army.
  • This, the Arboreal Frippery, the Compelling Cookie, the Leviathan Feather, and the King of Bugs are tied for least valuable treasure, at 10 Pokos each.
