List of hidden blocks in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Mario can discover fifteen Hidden Blocks throughout the areas he visits. Like regular ? Blocks, these invisible blocks contain coins, items, and even badges. Mario can locate them by using Ms. Mowz's field ability (by pressing X Button) to search or items on the field or from hidden blocks. Mario can still uncover them himself without her, however, even before she joins his party. He can also learn of the locations of some the hidden blocks by listening to some of Wonky's tales. 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, such as Shine Sprites. There are 15 hidden blocks in the game. This page lists the location of each hidden block, the contents, and how to get to them.

  1. ^ Wonky: Ol' Wonky just got this juicy bit of info recently... You know that small hole down here that only a little critter can get through? Well, you just head out away from the wall there... And when you can't go any further, jump to get something good. If you see that hole, you should give it a try...
  2. ^ Wonky: Deep in Boggly Woods is a spot with a bunch of tree stumps all lined up... If you jump hard on the tenth stump from the left, you'll get something good. Now I don't know what it is, but I hear it's really good.
  3. ^ Wonky: There's a wacky old place called Creepy Steeple somewhere in this land, and if you jump on the fourth step from the top, ol' Wonky hears you get a good thing. I don't know how useful that is, but hey, it's worth a shot.
  4. ^ Wonky: Far to the south of Rogueport lies an isle, and on this isle there are three yellow blocks in a row. And if you do a Spring Jump on the second of these blocks from the bottom... I hear you'll get something good for your health. But what island could this "southern isle" be referring to, anyway?
  5. ^ Wonky: There's a pipe down here that leads to a very cold place, ol' Wonky hears, and if you jump in front of the tree to the far right of the area you come out in then you get something nice, supposedly. But you won't catch 'ol Wonky out in a chilly place like that, no sir!
