All Hidden Treasures List
Below, we’ve listed all Hidden Treasures in a comprehensive list, but if you’re looking for more detail on how to find all hidden treasures, you can view more comprehensive instructions below for each region.
All Hidden Treasures in Mushroom Kingdom
Head into the Basement of the Item Shop. In here, you’ll meet a strange NPC that’ll make you stand in front of him. When you do so, he’ll instruct you to jump up, causing Mario to jump into a chest containing a Flower. After doing so, he’ll give you a Signal Ring. When equipped, it’ll ping when you’re nearby a Hidden Treasure.
In fact, when you equip it in this basement, you’ll get an alert for another Hidden Treasure chest. To find this one, first wait for the NPC to stand in the bottom right corner, then jump on his head. A Hidden Chest containing a Flower will appear.
Head back into the Castle’s hallway and walk over to the door at the back. Wait for one of the toad’s to make their way over and then hop onto their head to get on top of the ledge (these toads will be here after you’ve spoken to the Chancellor). Once up on the ledge above the door, jump up to reveal a Hidden Treasure chest, which contains a Frog Coin.
All Hidden Treasures in Bandit’s Way
This Hidden Treasure is found in the second area of . When you reach the second bit of high ground, drop off to the east and note two flowers to the south, one red (west) and one purple (east). Jump on the red flower and wait for it to spin you until you’re facing the purple flower to the east, then jump off and you’ll soar up and into the air, hitting a Hidden Treasure well above Mario’s normal reach, scoring some in the process. This elixir will fully restore the party’s HP and FP and is best saved for difficult fights.
All Hidden Treasures in Rose Town

Jump on his head up to the ledge where the house is, and then enter his house. Open up the two floating chests on the first floor before heading up the stairs to the next floor. Here, you’ll find the large green button the toad was telling you about. Jump on it to lower the stairs for the toad before jumping on the bed to find the hidden treasure which contains a Frog Coin. You can speak to the toad afterward, and if you’re honest with him, he’ll tell you a secret to get through the forest.
The second hidden treasure can be found inside the Item Shop which is situated on the east side of the town (has a spinning mushroom sign). Enter the shop, and head behind the counter. Jump on the crate to reach the top shelf, walk to the end, and jump to find the hidden treasure containing a Frog Coin. Note there is another chest in here on top of the bookshelf. To get this, you’ll need to exit the shop, head around the right side of the building, climb the crates, and enter the chimney. This will drop you on top of the bookshelf.
All Hidden Treasures in Forest Maze
There are five Hidden Treasure chests in . The first treasure can be found as soon as you enter the Forest Maze zone. Immediately walk to the left, hug the left wall until you stop, and then jump to find the hidden chest. This will reward you with a Croaka Cola.
At the end of the first area, enter the stump, and head through the cave until you exit it. The second Hidden Treasure will be in the northwest corner of the stump. Keep jumping around the area, and you should eventually find it.

This third Hidden Treasure chest will reward you with a Flower.
Head back into the area with all the stumps and proceed into the left stump in the middle row. From the spring, head into the corner of the two walks to the northeast, and jump. Finding this fourth Hidden Treasure chest rewards you with…nothing, it’s empty.

Return to the entrance and jump onto some rocks to the east and continue ascending to the northeast until you’re at the highest elevation.

All Hidden Treasures in Booster Tower

You’re not done here, however, as there’s still hidden treasure in this area… and it’s right above the chest you just looted. Jump back onto the platform, then try to land a jump from said platform onto the top of the chest you just opened. It may take a few tries, but when you get atop the chest, jump again to find the third Hidden Treasure, which contains a . Still not done!

All Hidden Treasures in Sunken Ship
Despite being a large dungeon, there’s only one Hidden Treasure in the Sunken Ship. After you defeat King Calamari you’ll reach a room where a Mario clone spawns! Don’t talk to this clone (if you do, you’ll start a fight with some common undead enemies that haunt the ship (, , , etc., and will have to leave the ship and reenter to get the clone to respawn). Instead, you need to hit an invisible J-box in the center of the room to get a chest to appear nearby. This chest is higher up, however, so you’ll need to get Mario on top of the head of his clone - the clone mirror’s Mario’s movements, so this can be pretty tricky. Once you’ve on clone-Mario’s head and within range of the chest, jump up to score a Croaka Cola. Much win!
All Hidden Treasures in Land’s End
At the start of the area, jump in the nearby cannon that sits next to the save point. When the cannon faces northeast, press to fire yourself onto the ledge in that direction.

Enter the second area, and jump in the next cannon you see. Launch yourself to the northeast where you’ll land in a hole. This spawns three enemies, defeat them, jump out of the hole, and then jump again at the southeast edge of the hole to reveal a yellow platform.

In the northwest corner, jump again to reveal the hidden treasure chest containing a Croaka Cola.
Continue on into the next room, and make your way into the following room by jumping over the pillars; if you fall, jump into the south cannon at the beginning to launch yourself back up. When you reach the fourth area, it will have grass, and red flowers nearby. Ignore this for now, and take the lower path to your east where you’ll find two purple flowers. Jump on the nearest flower, and jump across to the flower next to it to find the hidden treasure containing a Frog Coin. This treasure is in between the two purple flowers.
Just past the last purple flower, there is a secret path to your east. Follow it into the next area, and then head northwest to find an ominous black hole inside the rocky pillar. Although it may take a few tries, jump into it, and you’ll be transported to a cave system. Follow the linear path until you reach four crates stacked by/on each other to your right, and jump on them. Use this to reach the nearby chest for a Frog Coin. Continue along the path, and head into the northernmost corner where the Chow is, and jump to find the hidden treasure chest containing another Frog Coin.

All Hidden Treasures in Bean Valley

From Hidden Treasure 1, take the green pipe down in the north into the next area. Follow the northwestern path into another area, and you’ll notice five green pipes in the room as well as a save point. There is a pipe in each of these directions: Northwest, West, Southwest, Southeast, and East with each one of them having something in them which you can read about below. For this treasure, wait for the Shy Away to water the plant on the east pipe, and when it gets bigger, defeat it. This allows you to go down the pipe. In the next area, jump up the ledge to the east, and hug the wall until you reach the third block. Jump up to find the hidden treasure, and you’ll be rewarded with a Red Essence.

When you regain full control in the area (after escaping Dodo), take the northern room in the area after the save point (first one), and keep following the path until you reach the room with the three doorways. Go through the door furthest on the left (get the chest in the corner before you do), and then walk through the next two rooms. In the second room, there will be a set of stairs heading down. Make your way to the bottom, and stand behind the Jawful (enemy). Now, jump in the air to find the hidden treasure that contains another Frog Coin.
In almost the same location as the previous treasure, defeat the Jawful. Once it’s defeated, you should notice a small path leading off the map to the south, where the Jawful was. Follow the path south, and then northwest before jumping at the dead end. This will unveil the hidden treasure, which once again contains a Frog Coin.
After you defeat Birdo, you’ll receive Castle Key 2. Use it to open the door at the back of the room where you defeated it, and head into the next room. Before moving further, defeat the nearby Pinwheel, otherwise, it’ll blow you off the ledge. Continue on until you spot the chest to your right, and then jump on top of it. Jump again to reveal the hidden treasure, which contains yet another Frog Coin.
When you finish the area, defeat the bosses, and speak to the king. Head back to the room with the three doors. Do you remember the chest in the corner near the door on the far left, which contained a Flower? Well, now it is a hidden treasure.
