Super Mario RPG: Every Town, Ranked

You’ll visit a lot of great towns in Super Mario RPG, but only one can be the best.

As well as those existing in the original game, the remake also adds brand-new accessories to play with. This list will explore some of the best choices to pick, what they do, and where they can be found. Mix and match to create your preferred style.

10 Feather

The Dodo enemy in Super Mario RPG

Effect

Location

Boosts Speed and Defense

Nimbus Castle

If successfully avoided, the Feather accessory will be dropped by Dodo in Nimbus Castle, or, alternatively, can also be bought from Toad in Moleville for 250 coins.

Once equipped, the Feather accessory will boost Speed by 20 points, as well as increase Defense and Magical Defense by five points both. An increased speed stat will allow you to attack first in battles, making this a worthwhile attribute to raise.

9 Exp. Booster

Mario Surrounded By Zombie Toads

Effect

Location

Boosts EXP gain

Seaside Town

As the name would suggest, the EXP Booster accessory does just what you might imagine. When equipped, this accessory will double the amount of experience points earned during battles for whatever character it is currently equipped on.

The EXP Booster can be purchased from the frog store in the Seaside Town. With the use of this accessory, characters who would otherwise receive fewer experience points can be kept evenly leveled with the rest of your party.

8 Troopa Medal

Effect

Location

Boosts Attack and Speed

Land’s End

What the Troopa Medal does is simple: this accessory boosts your Attack by 50 percent and your Speed by 20 points. As simple as this may be, however, that doesn’t translate into this accessory being unhelpful.

The Troopa Medal can be received in Land’s End after completing the Paratroopa race and speaking with Sergeant Flutter. Either attribute alone wouldn’t be remarkable, but combined they render this accessory a viable choice if you’re looking to augment your offensive ability.

7 Enduring Brooch

Effect

Location

Prevents fainting

Marrymore

The Enduring Brooch is a late-game item, and as such will not be as immediately useful as some of the other accessories more readily available in the game. Nevertheless, this accessory has the notable effect of preventing your character from fainting once per battle.

During the post-game, if Bundt and Raspberry are once again defeated, you will be rewarded with the Enduring Brooch, an item that may prove useful when facing off against further bosses in the game.

6 Ghost Medal

Super Mario RPG's Ghost Medal.

Effect

Location

Doubles Defense

Monstro Town

When exploring Monstro Town, a side quest can be activated that will see you backtrack through several earlier locations in the game in search of flags that have been hidden there. Once these flags are discovered, the reward will be this useful accessory: the Ghost Medal.

The Ghost Medal doubles your Defense, effectively halving incoming damage. This makes it a solid defensive option if you find yourself succumbing to more powerful enemies later on in the game.

5 Attack Scarf

Effect

Location

All stats increase

Monstro Town

Looking for a boost across the board? Want a little bit of everything and don’t want to have to pick and choose? Then consider equipping the Attack Scarf. This accessory boasts a flat 30 point increase in all stats across the board, from Defense to Attack to Speed.

This makes it one of the more universally useful accessories in the game, as no other accessory can offer as much of a boost in comparison. It can be received in Monstro Town after completing 30 Super Jumps in a row.

4 Safety Badge

Effect

Location

Negate status effects

Sunken Ship

When equipped, the Safety Badge will boost both physical Defense and Magical Defense by a modest five points apiece. This pales in comparison to the true function of this badge, however.

The true use of the Safety Badge lies in its ability to negate all status effects, effectively replacing the usage of several other accessories which can be found earlier. The Safety Chest can be obtained in the Sunken Ship by defeating the chest that holds it.

3 Safety Ring

Effect

Location

Prevents mortal blows


Prevents status effects

Sunken Ship

When equipped, the Safety Ring will protect against attacks that would otherwise instantly incapacitate a character. Like its earlier counterpart, the Safety Badge, the Safety Ring will also protect against status afflictions, as well as a 70 percent reduction in elemental damage.

If that wasn’t enough, the cherry on top is that it also increases physical Defense, Magical Defense, and Speed each by five points. The Safety Ring can be found in a hidden chest in the Sunken Ship area.

2 Jinx Belt

Super Mario RPG Peach Getting Revived During Battle

Effect

Location

Prevents mortal blows


Increases in stats

Monstro Town

While the Jinx Belt does not boast as high of a stat increase as offered by the Attack Scarf, coming in at a comparatively smaller increase of 27 Attack, 27 physical Defense, and 12 Speed, this accessory also has a secondary function that makes it more than worth having. It also defends against mortal blows.

1 Quartz Charm

Effect

Location

Prevents mortal blows


Increases all stats

Monstro Town

The Quartz Charm is perhaps the most useful accessory in the game. Like others of its kind, it protects against mortal blows, but also has the added bonus of increasing nearly every stat in the game. Physical and Magical Defense are both boosted by 50 percent, as is Attack power.

This accessory can only be obtained by defeating Culex, a powerful endgame boss. This makes it the perfect choice for any challenge the game can throw at you.
