This level is a circle shaped clearing, but with a few puzzles to get through. The next sublevel's entrance is blocked off by a clog and is at the top of the sublevel.
This level is a concrete maze full of traps, get the treasure blocked off by a gate and move on. This also introduces the Mechanical Blowhog, which can shoot fire or water.
This level has several, one way dirt paths and is much like a maze. The next sublevel is blocked by a clog, behind a electric gate. This sublevel introduces the Lazer System, which are just a mess of wires emmitting a lazer that electrocutes pikmin. There's also a Armored Cannon Beetle Larva at the end of one hallway.
You start off in a small clearing. There is only two long hallways, one blocked off by a gate leading to a Dankgloop Bulbear holding the Vellum Code. The other hallway leads to the next sublevel, with a Mechanical Blowhog blocking the way.
A sublevel that can be debated on if it is a rest level or not. There is nothing to fight, the next sublevel is blocked with a clog, and there are no treasures. There is still a puzzle. You start off in a dark clearing, with a bit of water that doesn't harm your pikmin, and a light coming from the drainage above. There is only one path, and it leads to a series of scale puzzles leading up to the next sublevel.
There are two ways to go: one way leads to the exit, and the other leads to the boss. The Bulky Geiger Counter is buried under the Bored Stone on the ledge near the start. The boss way is a large clearing. Going in the middle has the Man At Legs fall from the sky. Man-At-Legs... is fought the same way you fought him in Pikmin 2, plus the fact that it's mechanical limb, the Blasted Stomper falls from the sky when defeated. The Bulky Geiger Counter actually is the treasure that provides a upgrade, which enables (after a transdimensional error) Challenge Mode.
