The Beetles Are Us store in Seaside Town
“Welcome to "Beetles Are Us"! If this is your first time, you need to pay an initiation fee.”
Snifit, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Beetles Are Us is a store that buys beetles in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Its name comes from Toys "R" Us and its spinoff brands. It is seated in Seaside Town and is run by a Snifster. Beetles Are Us is the "biggest beetle market in the known world."[1] Mario cannot buy beetles here; however, he can catch some and sell them to Beetles Are Us. To begin, Mario must first buy a Beetle Box for 50 coins, with an additional 100-coin fee if it is his first time. Mario must then go to Booster Hill and catch beetles while running down the hill in the Beetle Race minigame. After catching beetles, Mario is paid money depending on how many and what kinds of beetles he caught. Regular female beetles are worth one coin, regular male beetles are worth fifty coins, and golden beetles are worth one Frog Coin each.

Once Mario has turned in his beetles, he must rent another Beetle Box to continue catching beetles.

  • In the Japanese version, the unnamed Snifit is under the employ of someone only referred to as「社長」(shachō, president), implied to be Booster. This is completely erased from the English version outside of a vague reference to another person in the Snifit's line, "We run a beetle business here."
