On the opposite side from the starting site, there is a bridge that can be completed. The existence of this bridge will greatly affect the efficiency of your transportations, so first complete the bridge by gathering the nearby pieces.
Ideally, the goal is to securely collect fruit while defeating the minimum number of indigenous species as possible, but in this instance, it is fine to focus on completing the bridge.
The Whiptongue Bulborb located in one of the three small rooms areas is the most dangerous enemy in the Tropical Forest. After going around behind it, quickly throw many Pikmin on it, especially Rock Pikmin, to take it down.
Since time is limited, after taking it down quickly return to recovering treasure.
First, let's call up your Red Pikmin and recover the two Cupid's Grenades in front of you. Create two groups of Red Pikmin nearby. Recover the Sunseed Berry and move forward to find 2 Bulborbs. After defeating them, recover the two nearby fruits.
Throw the remaining Pikmin at the Kingcap and call back the Pikmin who recovered the fruit before heading out again.
After destroying the Kingcap, recover the fruit on the other side and then head to the eastern area. Throw the Pikmin at the nearby Face Wrinkler and destroy the dirt wall with a charge attack with the remaining Pikmin.
Have the leader round up the Pikmin who retrieved the fruit and head back towards the dirt wall.
After destroying the dirt wall, throw Pikmin at the Medusal Slurker and call back the Rock Pikmin to add to the attack against the Medusal Slurker. After defeating it, add the Rock Pikmin to your squad and explore the southern area.
After heading south, there will be bridge pieces scattered on the ground. Throw many Red Pikmin at the pieces to start collecting them and use the excess Rock Pikmin to break down the crystal on the left-hand side. After breaking the crystal, retrieve the fruit after defeating the Bulborb from behind and completing the bridge.
After crossing the bridge, there will be some Nuggets. Throw several Pikmin and let them handle the retrieval, and after calling back the Pikmin who completed the bridge, have them retrieve the nearby fruit.
During this time, have the leader cross back over the bridge and call the Pikmin who assisted with retrieval.
After returning with your Pikmin, break the glass wall with Rock Pikmin and have the remaining ones defeat the enemies on the other side. After defeating them, call back the Pikmin and have the Rock Pikmin transport the Nugget.
While transporting the Nugget, defeat the Pyroclasmic Slooch with Red Pikmin. After reuniting with the Rock Pikmin that carried the Nugget, retrieve the fruit.
Afterward, gather the Pikmin that retrieved the fruit and head towards the western clearing. Use all your Pikmin to defeat the Whiptongue Bulborb and quickly retrieve the Insect Condo.
Finally, have your Rock Pikmin destroy the crystal to the northeast and retrieve the fruit. With this, you will have retrieved all the fruit!
