Seaside Town is a coastal resort village appearing in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and its Nintendo Switch version. The town was conquered by the mechanical Speardovich during the events of the game. Besides locking up the Seaside citizens in a large shed, Speardovich also disguised himself as the town's entire population. The mechanical creature used this elaborate ruse to trick Mario into acquiring a Star Piece for the "elder."

None of the fake citizens seem to speak very well, as there are pauses in their conversation. Two fake citizens guard the building where all of the real citizens are locked up.

Seaside Town has more shops than any other village in the game, and houses a company known as "Beetles Are Us." At Beetles Are Us, Mario can buy a Beetle Box from the resident Snifster and can then catch beetles at Booster Hill for coins. Additionally, there is a boy from Rose Town who will taste Mario's Mushrooms, and will give Mario a special item if the Mushrooms are of a rare variety. Frogfucius' Student lives here as well, and will trade special accessories for Frog Coins. Seaside Town contains only three buildings that are not shops: the elder's house, the inn, and the large shed.

Before Mario and his party got to Seaside Town, Speardovich had already conquered the town, locking up all of the residents. He then assumed multiple forms disguised as the residents. Mario eventually reaches Seaside Town. The fake elder urges Mario to head to the Sunken Ship to retrieve a star for him. While the city is under Speardovich's control (before obtaining the Star Piece), he sells the Fright, Fire, and Ice Bombs, Thropher Cookies, and Poison Mushrooms. This is the only point in the game where any of these items can be bought from a regular store.

After getting the fifth Star Piece from Johnny, the fake elder takes the Star Piece. The fake elder expects the Blade to pick him up, but he does not arrive. Johnny then appears to confront Speardovich, who reveals his true form. Mario, Mallow, Geno, Bowser and Peach battle him, and ultimately, Speardovich is defeated. Afterward, Mario regains custody of the Star Piece, and the residents of the village are freed.
