Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page details how to equip weapons, armor and accessories in Super Mario RPG. Armor, weapons and accessories can all be vital to success in combat, offering extra damage and defenses. Read on for a quick guide on how to equip gear in Super Mario RPG.

You’ll get your first bit of gear when you defeat the Hammer Bros - learn how to equip the hammer here!

How to Equip Gear in Super Mario RPG

Equipping gear in Super Mario RPG is really easy and you can do it from the very beginning of the game - though you might not have anything to equip just yet! All you need to do is open up the menu using the “+” button Joy-Con-ButtonPlus and then select “Equip”. From here, if you have items to equip, you can choose to either equip Weapons, Armor and/or Accessories. On this menu page you’ll also see your party member’s stats so as you equip items, you’ll be able to see what stats they affect - defense, attack, mg. attack, etc.

Where to Get Gear in Super Mario RPG

You’ll get your first bit weapon after defeating the Hammer Bro bosses in Mushroom Way - a big ol’ hammer! However, if you’re looking for more gear, your best bet is to start saving up coins and spending them at the Item shops. The first one you’ll be able to visit is in the Mushroom Kingdom. For example, here you’ll be able to buy a Shirt for Mario that offers +6 Defense and +6 Mg. Defense for 7 Coins. You can also buy some special Jump Shoes for 30 Coins in the Accessories tab and these will allow Mario to perform a Jump special attack against any enemy!

You can purchase gear from the Item shop to beef up your party members!

Make sure to check every Item Shop you come across, as they’re the best places to find gear for your party members - and not just for Mario!
