Hidden Treasures in Mario RPG are invisible chests that can be found by jumping in a specific location. These chests frequently give you powerful items such as the various Flower consumables that will increase your FP among other helpful loot. There are only two Hidden Treasures in Rose Town which can be found in the following locations:
- House in the northwest with the green switch.
- Inside the Item Shop.
Read below for a more detailed explanation.
Rose Town Hidden Treasure 1: Northwest House
When you enter Rose Way for the first time, head to the northwest of the village where you’ll find a toad. Speak to him, and he will tell you that he can’t get to its house due to the stairs that leads up to it has being taken away. 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.
Rose Town Hidden Treasure 2: Item Shop
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.
There is a tipster you can find who is hidden off-screen. You will find them behind the house adjacent to the house on the raised platform. Talking to them will reveal that there are two different types of mushrooms in the forest, one which terrorizes people, one which helps, so avoid the former.
