List of hidden blocks in Paper Mario
In Paper Mario, Mario can discover Hidden Blocks throughout the Mushroom Kingdom. Like regular ? Blocks, these invisible blocks contain coins, items, and even badges. Mario can reveal them by using Watt's field ability by pressing ; however, Mario can still uncover them himself without her, even before she joins his party. All Hidden Blocks are revealed by jumping at them -- there are no Hidden Blocks on the ground that must be hit with the Hammer. Some Hidden Blocks are too high for Mario to hit with an ordinary jump and thus require the use of the Tornado Jump from the Ultra Boots to reveal them (such as four mandatory ones in Toad Town Tunnels leading to Shiver City). Hidden Blocks will never be found in areas with NPCs; as such, they will not be found in shops or houses. If Mario reveals a block containing an item or badge, then leaves and returns to the area without collecting the contents, the block will become invisible again until he does so. Some invisible blocks are used as stepping stones to reach new places or other items. There are 47 Hidden Blocks in the game. This page lists the location of each Hidden Block, the contents, and how to get to them.
