In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Mario can discover hidden Treasure Boxes known as Surprise Boxes throughout the Mushroom Kingdom. Surprise Boxes contain various items from Frog Coins, Flowers, powerful healing items, and items used in battle. When Mario jumps at a spot where a Surprise Box is, it first reveals itself, and jumping at the revealed Surprise Box allows Mario to collect its contents.
Mario first learns about Surprise Boxes from a female Toad in the basement of the Mushroom Kingdom's item shop. Later on in Monstro Town, he can find a friendly Chester on the second floor of Monstermama's house that keeps track of how many Surprise Boxes the red-clad plumber has yet to reveal, without specifying the whereabouts of each Surprise Box not found.
Later in the game, in Nimbus Land, after defeating Valentina, Mario can collect the Signal Ring dropped from Croco in a house next to the castle. When equipped, it makes a ringing sound if Mario is in an area with a Surprise Box.
There are thirty-nine Surprise Boxes in the game. This page lists the location of each one, its contents, and how to reach them.
