Hidon is a green Piranha Plant with a red stalk that is disguised as a green Treasure Chest in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. His name is a play on "hidden", referring to how his true form is enclosed within the chest until Mario strikes it from below and initiates the battle. Unlike the other enemies found in treasure chests in the game, Hideon is only encountered once in the game. After defeating him, the player recieved a large amount of experience points and coins, and can then find the Safety Badge inside Hideon's now-vacant treasure chest.

Like his lookalikes Pandorite, Chester and Box Boy, Hidon is a powerful opponent, having both high attack and defense, as well as high HP and immunity to Thunder, Fire and Ice and all status ailments, although Mario's Jump attacks are very effective. Hidon's first action in battle is to release four Goombettes that were trapped inside the chest ("Monsters are inside!") to assist him in battle; once they are all defeated, he will release another set.

If Hidon is targeted with a normal attack, he will either attack in return, or use Carni-Kiss, which allows him to bite a party member for 2x the damage of his normal attack. The odds of each is 2/3 in favor of casting one of his normal attacks (Static E!, Willy Wisp and Flame Stone), and 1/3 in favor of using Carni-Kiss.
