The Essence of True Love is one of the 201 treasures found in Pikmin 2. It is located in the second sublevel in Hole of Heroes, a level filled with Swooping Snitchbugs, Bumbling Snitchbugs, and other flying enemies. Before you retrieve it, defeat the Antenna Beetle and the Anode Beetles. Locate the treasure with your Treasure Gauge and bring it to the Ship's Pod. Watch out for Snitchbugs and Careening Dirigibugs, which can cause disaster to unattended groups of Pikmin. The Essece of True Love is actually a gold mounted sapphire.
