Foxtails are rare plants used for scenery in Pikmin 2; they are only seen in the Valley of Repose and Wistful Wild, and never in caves. They do not affect gameplay at all, as they are only for decoration. These plants appear as withered grass stalks with a plume of seeds on the tip, though the exact real-world species cannot be identified.


Olimar's Notes

"This plant remains erect after withering and losing its color, so we can only hypothesize about the true color of the plant's plumage. However, local soil analysis indicates trace amounts of dormant seeds, making it not hard to imagine that the area was thick with these plants in the summer."

Louie's Notes

"Inedible. Plagues victims with potent, debilitating cramps."

Nintendo Player's Guide

Tall foxtails give any field rustic beauty. The feathery foliage grows thick in places where the sun shines and the weather is warm."
