Hidden Item Containers,[1] also known as Roulettes,[2] are objects the player can pick up in Super Mario Advance. They can be randomly found under Mushroom Blocks or behind destructible walls. Three items scroll within a Hidden Item Container: a bomb, a heart, and a Starman. When the Hidden Item Container is dropped, it breaks and releases whatever item is shown.
