Continue progressing through Giant’s Hearth to reach the true final area – Primordial Thicket. In this location, you can complete the “Cure Oatchi” quest, and find Castaways and treasures as in any other zone in the game. Once you have made enough progress, you will meet the real final boss of the game – Louie and the Ancient Sirehound in the “Cavern for the King” cave.

Louie is a character that will be familiar to players of previous Pikmin games and Ancient Sirehound is an overgrown version of Oatchi that will use all kinds of elements on you. Cue in the Pikmin metal music, and good luck! If you manage to beat them, the True Ending will kick off – enjoy the show, you’ve earned it.
