The Arboreal Frippery is a treasure found in Pikmin 2. It is found in the fourth sublevel of the Shower Room, which is a large, calm area with only harmless Unmarked Spectralids and two Queen Candypop Buds. The water is too shallow to drown your Pikmin, so cross it if you need to. The treasure is in a pipe, so use the Treasure Gauge if you cannot find it, or find the correct pipe. Since it weighs only one measly unit, throwing in one White Pikmin should easily transport the treasure back to the Ship's Pod in a quick, hasty manner. The Arboreal Frippery is actually a leaf from a Japanese maple tree.
In the Japanese version, Olimar's journal entry and the sales pitch describe this treasure as the "ultimate drug", and Olimar even states that he might even want to use it some day. Users are also warned not to overdose, as it may cause death. Its name in the Japanese version is Ichikorodaore, which means "One-hit kill".
