* The Waterwraith is the most terrifying enemy in ''Pikmin 2'', both in-universe and out, and is heavily implied to be an EldritchAbomination. You can only bring blue Pikmin into the cave you find it in, whereas it's invincible to everything except purple ones. It appears whenever you take too long on a floor in the cave, complete with ScareChord; can [[TotalPartyKill kill all your Pikmin in about a second]] if it catches you; and, even if you don't have them all with you, knows exactly where to go to screw you over the most. Needless to say, when the final floor provides you with purple Candypop Buds, throwing purple Pikmin at it, making it cower in fear as they smash its rollers, is not only hilarious but also deeply satisfying. The funny factor is turned UpToEleven when the rollers are destroyed; the Waterwraith ''runs away in panic'', and the music shifts from creepy to zany. The best part is when you actually defeat it, it strikes a few poses and blows up.

Added DiffLines:

* One of the ship pieces in the first game is a Geiger Counter, and in a moment of BlackComedy, Olimar's description admits that he doesn't really know what it does and that [[TooDumbToLive he always ignores the annoying beeping noise that it makes from time to time]]. It's a miracle that our hero hasn't died of radiation poisoning by this point!

** Olimar's notes on the Waterwraith, just because of how [[GenreSavvy correct it was in how the player would react to it.]]

\n** Similarly, he also comments on what he thinks is on the NES cartridges he finds. He thinks Ice Climbers is a tale of violence and that Super Mario Bros is a tragedy and hopes the mustachioed man on the cover will have better luck in his next life.

\n** The Kicks amiibo has Olimar lamet over how Kicks apparently has more going for him than he does. While wondering over what else he could possibly have over him, the ship chimes in with 'probably doesn't dwell on such trivial problems like this one." Olimar's response?
--> '''Olimar:''' ''I think that's the worst I've ever been burned on a voyage. Where are the Red Pikmin when I need them?''

\n** After getting the Mr. Resetti amiibo, the S.S. Dolphin II starts talking with a Texan accent. Olimar considers the best course of action to fix this would be to reset it.

\n** Spends most of the VideoGame/AnimalCrossing amiibo line unable to figure out if they're people or animals.
** Upon only seeing her amiibo, Olimar claims Isabelle would be a better president at Hocotate Frieght than [[PointyHairedBoss the current one]].

** Can't figure out what Donkey Kong is but sympathizes with him because since he has a tie, that means he [[RefugeInAudacity has an]] [[FateWorstThanDeath office job]].

\n* Hey! Pikmin may be in an [[BrokenBase interesting]] area regarding the fanbase but there's no denying it's treasure logs aren't a source of hilarity. In particular, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDUlPki9T-E the amiibo notes]] tend to be hilarious because [[OnlySaneMan Olimar]] is commenting on various Nintendo characters with near zero context. Some highlights include:
** Him just trying to figure out just what the heck Yoshi is, especially how it [[LampshadeHanging makes little sense that he'd be born with a backplate and shoes]].
** Confusing the Inklings with harden war veterans and hoping they get a break soon. As anyone familiar with their [[VideoGame/{{Splatoon}} home series]] is aware, the [[BloodKnight Inklings]] are [[WarIsGlorious perfectly okay with the sport]].
** Becoming incredibly paranoid over his ''own'' amiibo over how someone on the planet already knows what he looks like.
