Super Mario Odyssey (2017)

Seeds are items that appear in Super Mario Odyssey. They are small, yellow, acorn-like objects that can be found in certain kingdoms. Each kingdom that contains seeds also contains a small plant pot for each one, usually in a different location than the seeds; Mario can plant seeds by bringing them to an empty pot and throwing it inside. After a seed has been planted, it will grow over time until a golden bud appears at the top of the plant; in the Seaside Kingdom, Mario can use a Gushen to water it, quickening the growing process. If Mario touches the bud after the plant has grown fully, it will sprout and release a Power Moon. Once Mario has collected this Power Moon, the plant will stay fully-grown for the rest of the game, allowing the Power Moon to be re-collected for coins or health at any point by touching the bud again.

In the Wooded Kingdom, a similar plant appears in a stream in the Deep Woods, surrounded by blackened, non-collectable coins stuck in the riverbed. If Mario captures a Coin Coffer and uses it to shoot coins at the plant, it grows taller and taller; after a few hundred coins are fired, the bud finally appears and can be opened to collect a Power Moon.

There also exists a larger, brown variation of seeds; Mario can throw one into an enclosed patch of dirt to make it grow into a massive Beanstalk, which can take Mario to a higher platform, out of the Deep Woods, or to a bonus area in the sky, depending on the Beanstalk's location. In the Wooded Kingdom, these seeds are dispensed by silver Steam Gardeners.
