Find out how to beat the secret boss and find easter eggs from Nintendo and other games. These are the best Super Mario RPG secrets.
People love Super Mario RPG because it has so many Easter eggs and hidden things. Back when Mario was on the SNES, these little known facts and references really wowed fans. You can find all of them in the Nintendo Switch version. Even people who have played other Super Mario RPGs will find some new things in this remake.
You can see that Super Mario RPG Remake has a lot to offer if you take the time to check out every place. You might see surprise appearances from Final Fantasy and other Nintendo games, secret cutscenes, and even a brand-new boss fight if you pay close attention during the journey.
Link From The Legend Of Zelda Makes A Cameo
You can find this famous Easter egg after beating Bowyer in the Forest Maze. Now that you have Geno on board and the second star, go back to Rose Town and rest at the Inn. Someone you know will be in the bed next to yours when you wake up.
In the corner of the room, Link from The Legend of Zelda is sound asleep. When you try to talk to him, the famous “secret found” Zelda theme song will play. In the first Super Mario RPG, Link showed up for the first time in a Mario game.
You Can Play As 8-Bit Mario
There are many hidden items and Easter eggs in Booster’s Tower. The best one is in a room with two curtains. There is an 8-bit Mario sprite from Super Mario Bros. on NES that you can see if you go behind one of them.
The overworld theme from the old NES game plays in the background as you run around the room. There is a timer that goes off when you try to leave, and the music speeds up like when the timer is running out. “Life Lost” will play when you go back behind the screen, and you’ll come out as 3D Mario.
Mario Gets A Kiss From Bowser And Booster
|Three or four
|Four or five
|All of them
|Bowser and Booster
This is without a doubt the nicest Easter egg in Super Mario RPG. We didn’t know Mario was so hot.
Luigi Makes A Wish
In Super Mario RPG, Luigi doesn’t show up, but you can hear him talk when you get to Star Hill. There are tiny stars all over this beautiful area that hold wishes from people all over the world. One has a wish from the well-known green plumber on it.
Luigi’s voice will say, “I want to help my older brother Mario,” if you talk to one of the stars. His love for his brother is still strong, even though he’s not in the game.
There are a lot of toys hidden in Booster’s Tower as Easter Eggs. You can find the first one as soon as you walk into the building. If you look closely at the front desk, you can see a figure of Final Fantasy 6’s Magitek armor.
More clues can be found in a toy box on the top floor. There is a Peach doll next to Samus from Metroid, the red car from Stunt Race FX for the SNES, and Diskun, the Famicom Disk System’s star. You can see Rob the Robot was under the Peach doll the whole time Booster took it.
Samus From Metroid Takes A Nap
Square Enix must really like Metroid because Samus shows up twice in Super Mario RPG. The real Samus is sleeping in a guest room in Peach’s castle, not in Booster’s Tower like the doll.
Following your victory over Speardovich in Seaside Town, go back to the Mushroom Kingdom to find the renowned intergalactic bounty hunter sleeping. If you talk to her, she’ll say she’s getting ready for a big battle with Mother Brain. It’s not clear why she sleeps in full armor.
Since the first Super Mario RPG came out, fans have had one question: what is Peach hiding behind her fireplace? You can find this Easter egg right at the beginning of 8 Ball Pool. If you look at the fireplace in Peach’s bedroom, you’ll find a strange thing called “Peach’s???”.
The game doesn’t say what this thing is, but one of Peach’s helpers will come up to you and give you a mushroom if you agree not to remember seeing it. Peach will tell you to be quiet if she is in your party when you find it. What could the Princess be keeping from you?
Star Fox And F-Zero References
There are three cool Easter eggs hidden in an area of Cinder Mart in Barrel Volcano. There are three figurines on a stack of boxes in the back of the store. One of the things on the left is Fox McCloud’s Star Fox spaceship, the Arwing.
Two of the ships are from the F-Zero range. The Blue Falcon of Captain Falcon is in the middle, and the Fire Stingray of Samurai Goroh is to the right. Both games made big waves when they came out on the SNES, so it makes sense that they’re in Super Mario RPG.
You may know this Easter Egg because it has been used as a joke for a long time. Once you beat Bundt and Raspberry in Marrymore, you can go back to Yo’ster Isle and find a baby Yoshi sleeping in a pile of eggs. He will become Big Yoshi if you feed him at least 30 cookies.
He will give you odd things as a treat if you keep giving him cookies, like Red Essences, Yoshi Candies, Energizers, and Yoshi-Aide. If you have cookies, you should stop by this cute Yoshi every once in a while.
Culex And The New Secret Boss
- Talk to the girl with the pink bow in Moleville. If you give her fireworks, she’ll trade you her Shiny Stone.
- Talk to the mole inside the house to the girl’s left. For 500 coins, he will sell you fireworks.
- To get the Shiny Stone, trade the fireworks with the girl. Then, go to Monstro Town. Use the stone to open the locked blue door that you can find.
When you fight Culex for the first time, he looks like his 16-bit sprite from the first Super Mario RPG. The boss theme from Final Fantasy 4 plays during the fight. If you beat him, he’ll come back to get you. After that, the fun starts.
How To Find The New Secret Boss
Once you finish the game, you can begin a new quest that ends with rematches with some of the bosses. Make your way back to Monstro Town and use the Extra-Shiny Stone, which you get after one of the rematches, to open Culex’s door. This will let you fight the next boss.
You’ll see Culex in full 3D, and the Final Fantasy 4 boss theme will be played in a new way. There are some evil tricks he has planned for this time. Have fun!
