The Key is a treasure in Pikmin 2, whose name is the only one among the treasures that describes itself exactly. The Key is found inside the body of a Beady Long Legs on the last sublevel (5) of the Citadel of Spiders. Apart from increasing your Poko total, The Key also unlocks Challenge Mode, which can be found in the Main Menu after the treasure has been collected. It is part of the Exploration Kit.
In Pikmin 2's Challenge Mode, this treasure is found on every sublevel of every one of the 30 levels. It is required to make the entrance to the next sublevel, or a geyser, appear, and is worth 100 Pokos.
- The Key bears a striking resemblance to the keys in Super Mario Bros. 2, which were guarded by Phanto masks, or the keys in Super Mario World, which open keyholes leading to secret stages.
