The Brass Knuckles is a treasure in Pikmin: The After Years. It is a pair of brass knuckles held by the Terrordactyl on the final sublevel of Lost Paradise. Upon collecting it, leaders are granted the Charge Punch, which allows them to charge a powerful punch by holding or and then releasing it to deliver the blow. When fully charged, a leader's fist glows yellow. Charged punches can instantly kill dwarf bulborbs and Ravenous Whiskerpillars and deplete a quarter of a Red Bulborb's health. To compensate for the Charge Punch's immense power, leaders sustain slight damage from its recoil. Additionally, if a leader is damaged while charging a punch, the charge is canceled, and the leader will be briefly unable to charge another punch.
