The Forged Courage is a treasure found in Pikmin 2. It is actually the top half of a red toy robot with guns for arms, similar to the Justice Alloy. It is found on the last Sublevel (7) of the Bulblax Kingdom, inside the body of the Emperor Bulblax, the cave's boss. To defeat this enemy, it is advised to throw multiple Purple Pikmin onto its eyes while still submerged. Collecting this item grants the ability of the Scorch Guard, part of the Exploration Kit.
"I found this marvelous alloy in a hole swarming with bulborbs! On that adventure, I even clashed with an Emperor Bulblax! In honor of my triumph over that appallingly obese beast, I named the hole the Bulblax Kingdom."
"A heat-resistant alloy forged in the fires of justice and passion. Wear it and feel courage's burn! You have nothing to fear! (Due to horrid ventilation, this is not suited for sweaty beings.)"
The Scorch Guard is an armor upgrade that makes all pilots' suits fire-proof. This way, there is no need to worry about being hurt when destroying fire geysers, or fighting enemies such as the Fiery Blowhog or Fiery Bulblax.
- The ability that collecting this treasure gives you (Scorch Guard) was originally going to be called the Flare Guard.
