The Key is the only treasure in Pikmin 2 that has the name to match it's real-world object. The Key is dropped after killing Beady Long Legs on the last floor of the Citadel of Spiders. This is only worth 100 Pokos, but it also unlocks Challenge Mode, which can be accessed from the main menu. This is the only object from the Explorer's Friend Series that is not added to your Exploration Kit.
 Challenge Mode
In Challenge Mode, this key is found on every floor of each Cave, and upon retrieval, will spawn a hole to move on to the next sublevel.
 Olimar's Journal
"This item came from the personal treasure hoard of a massive Pikmin-devouring spider. The whole cave was crawling with all kinds of fearsome creatures. I decided to name that eerie cave the Citadel of Spiders. The ship can't stand bugs... Whenever I ask it to store a specimen for salvage, it threatens to stage a mutiny."
 Sales Pitch
"This shape... I have encountered it some where before... No, I must be mistaken... Yes, I am mistaken. Thoughts like these strike all who see this cabalistic form. You can feel its immense power!"
