Juice is the substance from fruits taken by Drake, in order to feed the Captains on their voyage in Pikmin 3. One bottle of juice will be consumed at every nightfall, no matter how many crew members are on board. At the beginning of the game the player is given 3 juice bottles to start their voyage. Different fruits provide different amounts of juice, the lowest possible being half a cup, the maximum being 3, and the average being 1.51. Juice will come in different colors depending on what fruit is used, though the different colors have no special properties. A total number of 97 juice bottles can be found in a single playthrough, excluding the 3 given at the beginning. Should the player run out of juice, a Game Over screen will appear, and the player will be given the option to either start the day over or go back to a previous day.
