Gelatin The icon used to represent this obstacle.

Gelatin is a cube- or rectangle-shaped obstacle that rebounds most Pikmin thrown at it towards or away from the direction the Pikmin was thrown, depending on the direction of the throw. Because of its rubbery nature, it can be used to reach new locations. Gelatin can normally only be destroyed through extreme blunt force such as that exerted by large objects in motion, but typically not explosions or exposure to other hazards. Gelatin may have objects, enemies, or even Pikmin suspended within, and may inherit the supernatural characteristics of enemies such as the Waterwraith.

Gelatin is a new obstacle in Pikmin: Decayed Leaf. The large, gelatinous substance mainly comes in a light purple color but can be a variety of different colors other than that. Gelatin can come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Pikmin that run into or attack the gelatin will be shoved back by the gelatin's recoil, meaning it cannot be damaged by Pikmin normally. However, it can be taken out by throwing dozens of Pikmin into the gelatin. They will begin to eat it from the inside until it is fully consumed. The color of the gelatin indicates which Pikmin color can eat it faster.

Gelatin is an obstacle in Pikmin: Sinister Incinerator that can be made vulnerable to attack by having Purple Pikmin pound on it or the ground around it, which will cause it to temporarily turn a dark shade of purple and allow it to be beaten to pieces. Gelatin can be best described as a pale, transparent substance that resembles water. It is what makes up the main body of the Waterwraith, explaining why Purple Pikmin are required to destroy it. Pikmin and leaders that touch gelatin will bounce off of it and be thrown back but suffer no other effects from contact. It can be seen by itself or infused into other obstacles, and may also be of different shapes, such as rectangles or spheres. Spheres of gelatin often fall from above in certain areas, where they bounce for some time before finally settling.
