Woo Bean, Hoo Bean, Chuckle Bean and Hee Bean.

Beans are collectible items that have made an appearance in four games to date. Additionally, the Beanish are a race of bean-like people.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga[edit]

Main article: List of bean spots in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Beans are plentiful in this game, and while collecting them is entirely optional (and time-consuming), they will help Mario and Luigi. There are four kinds of beans in the game, and each is acquired in a different way.

As a final supply, there is a pair of Oho Jees south of Oho Oasis running a surfing game that awards all type of beans except Hee Beans.

All beans can be taken to the Starbeans Café, where they are blended into stat-boosting coffee for Mario and Luigi.

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time[edit]

In this game, Beans are dug up by Baby Mario and Baby Luigi. These can be traded to Fawful in his shop, Fawful's Bean 'n' Badge, for Badges. The Beans in this game bear a resemblance to Hee Beans, although they are never actually given any name other than "Bean".

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story[edit]

Mario & Luigi collect beans that will boost stats. These beans are called Heart Beans (which add 1 point to the player's HP), Special Beans (which add one point to the player's SP), and Power Beans (which adds a point to the player's attack power). An oversized Bean appears as a healing item for Crawfuls, and also an attack by Magifoofa.

If the player pauses the game, they can access a list of beans that they have collected. The list also shows how many beans are in an area. There are 251 beans in the whole game:

Place Number of Beans
Energy Hold 17 Beans
Airway 8 Beans
Toad Town 29 Beans
Toad Town Caves 10 Beans
Blubble Lake 21 Beans
Plack Beach 57 Beans
Dimble Wood 29 Beans
Peach's Castle 17 Beans
Cavi Cape 11 Beans
Bumpsy Plains 4 Beans
Bowser Path 10 Beans
Bowser's Castle 38 Beans

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team[edit]

Like in other Mario & Luigi games, beans are a collectible in this game, to the extent they were in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, where they boosted the brothers' stats upon eating them. Beans are marked as Xs in the ground, and upon Mario digging one up gives the player a bean that permanently boosts one of the brother's stats by one stat point. Unlike the prequel, there are Beans for all of the stats rather than just beans for Power, HP and SP (which was changed back to BP as of this game).

Beans are only dug up in the Real World. If the player pauses the game and goes into the Beans section in the Collection Menu, they can find a list of all the areas with beans and how many they've found and how many there are in each area. Stat DX Beans that increase the aforementioned stat by three points can also be obtained from Golden Beanies as a drop and from Kylie Koopa upon completing a Level 3 puzzle within the goal time for the first time. Beans can also be gained from equipping the Wellington Boots/Farmer Boots, which may turn coins into bean drops. There are a total of 143 beans that can be dug up in the game, there being 24 of four beans each; Heart Beans, Bros. Beans, Power Beans and Stache Beans, 25 Defence Beans and 22 Speed Beans to find.

  • HP Beans: Pink beans that increases a bro's HP.
  • Bros. Beans: Green beans that increases a bro's BP.
  • Power Beans: Orange beans that increases a bro's POW.
  • Defense Beans: Silver beans that increases a bro's DEF.
  • Speed Beans: Blue beans that increases a bro's SPEED.
  • Stache Beans: Brown beans that increases a bro's STACHE.
