The Radiation Canopy (放射線キャノピー, "Hōshasen Kyanopī") is a ship part in Pikmin, acting as the cockpit cover of the S.S. Dolphin. The Radiation Canopy turns the harsh radiations of space into soft infrared rays that aren't harmful to the body, making it necessary for space travel. In Pikmin 2, the Decorative Goo treasure is in the same location, and the Blue Onion replaces the Armored Cannon Beetle that guarded the ship part.


Discovery Notes

"At last! My Radiation Canopy! This turns the harsh radiation of deep space into soft, infrared rays that are easy on the body. I'll sleep like a baby once I get this back to the ship!"

Ship Log

"I'll have to inspect it later to make sure it hasn't cracked. I'll be in for even more trouble if I have any radiation leaks."

Collecting the Part

Armored Cannon Beetle(PikminNPC)

The Armored Cannon Beetle that guards the ship part.

From the landing site, go through the gate that needed Bomb Rocks to be destroyed. Throw at least thirty Pikmin on a ledge and then proceed through another gate located in a small body of water, therefore requiring Blue Pikmin to destroy it. Climb to where the Pikmin are and command them to destroy another gate. Though not required, beating the Armored Cannon Beetle will produce a safe path to carry the Radiation Canopy back to the ship. The part itself is located in a small area in the top left corner of the arena.
