The Repugnant Appendage is a treasure in Pikmin 2; it is actually a dirty pink shoe with a velcro strap and a teddy bear on it is likely that it is a baby shoe judging from design and proportion. It is found on the final sublevel of Frontier Cavern and is in the possession of an Empress Bulblax that constantly gives birth to offspring known as Bulborb Larvae. When retrieved, the Rush Boots component of the Exploration Kit is unlocked.
"This aromatic object secretes a tangy odor that could knock out a bulblax! I'm with the ship on this one... I don't want to touch it, either! But I must! For the sake of the company and my family... I must summon the strength to carry on!"
"Is this the remains of some giant creature? Its color is striking, but its stench is horrific. Could it be dangerous? The true essence of things in the natural world is often very disguised."
The Rush Boots are a modification to the captains' footwear by The Ship that allows them to run faster, at the same speed as flowered White Pikmin. They work by reducing air resistance and so allowing the captains to have greater speed. The Rush Boots also renders the blowing attack of Puffy and Withering Blowhogs ineffective against captains. They can however be a hindrance, as the Pikmins' speed is not increased so they fall behind, are harder to control and often get stuck where going around corners.
- The Rush Boots ability was originally going to be called the Dash Boots.
