List of bean spots in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Mario and Luigi can collect Chuckle Beans by coming across bean spots -- X-shaped bean symbols or other distinguishing features on the ground -- all throughout the Beanbean Kingdom. To retrieve these beans, Mario must perform Luigi Dunk to hammer Luigi into the bean spot, then by popping out of the ground at the spot, Luigi will uncover the bean.
Most bean spots are visible to the player; however, some are not. To retrieve beans from invisible bean spots, Luigi must hammer Mario from behind to become Mini-Mario. As Mini-Mario, he can detect hidden beans from underneath when a flashing "!" sign appears over his head, which becomes large if he's directly on the spot. Then as regular Mario, he can perform Luigi Dunk on Luigi at that spot to retrieve the bean. Sometimes these particular bean spots are found in certain plants, near statues, or other distinct patterns on the ground. Another way of finding hidden bean spots is by playing Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga on the Game Boy Player, then using the rumble feature on the Nintendo GameCube Controller to locate the bean spot. These methods are also used to retrieve Beanstones and Bean Fruit. In the remake, these hidden bean spots are now visible.
There are a total of 196 Chuckle Beans to collect from bean spots: 138 from visible spots, and 58 from hidden ones. This page shows the locations of each one and how to get to them. Stardust Fields, Beanbean Castle Town, Beanbean Castle, Beanbean Castle Sewers, Little Fungitown, Guffawha Ruins and S.S. Chuckola do not have any bean spots at all.
