We’ve all seen a lot of coins in Super Mario Sunshine, from the ones that will give you one minute of extra time underwater to those that are only worth ten coins. While most people know what most coins do, there is one type that confuses many players: the Fluff Festival Coins.
Fluff Festival Coins are purple and have a 10 on them with a tuft of white fur on top for easy identification. They can only be found by defeating enemies and they have no other use in the game outside of being traded for a souvenir at Delfino Square’s kiosk.
The reason they were added as a set of coins you could find is because they are used in an easter egg that Nintendo added to the game. There are five Fluff Festival Coins that can be found by defeating enemies (or by walking underwater for sixty seconds).
When you find all five, the character who found them will appear on the beach and give you a Mushroom-shaped souvenir. The first time this happens, Diddy Kong gives you a Mushroom hat.
Here some points are discussed about fluff festival coin hunt–
1. Fluff Festival Coins have no use in the game.
You will not find a recipe for anything specific with these, nor will you be able to sell them for a profit like you can other coins in the game. It appears that the first Fluff Festival Coin is awarded to Diddy Kong when he finds all five of them on Delfino Square Beach.
Diddy Kong appears after finding all five Fluff Festival Coins and rewards you with an amusing little hat that is shaped like a mushroom by rubbing it on him and then giving it to him (a lot of people seem to think that this is a reference to Mario).
2. Fluff Festival Coins are used in an easter egg.
When you find all of these coins, a mini-game appears which rewards a Mushroom shaped souvenir and also causes one of five characters to appear on the beach to give you this item. In addition, Diddy Kong gives you the mushroom hat for your hat collection.
The first time it happens, Diddy Kong gives you the mushroom hat and one of five characters (Capsule Guy, Rayman, Peach, Pianta or Toad) appears on the beach after finding them all and gives you a Mushroom shaped souvenir.
3. You can get a Mushroom Hat in Super Mario Sunshine.
Or at least you can after finding all of the Fluff Festival Coins and trading them for a souvenir with the shop owner on Delfino Square Beach.
Each of the five locations has five coins, so there are twenty-five coins to collect in Super Mario Sunshine.
This means that there is a distance of about 300 yards between each position, which is about 210 meters. There’s no need to rush though because once you pick up the first coin it will reappear after 120 seconds so you have plenty of time to find them all.
After finding the first Fluff Festival Coin, Diddy Kong will appear on the beach and give you a mushroom hat for your hat collection. He also gives you a Mushroom shaped souvenir and after finding all five coins, each of the five characters from the easter egg will appear and give you Mushroom shaped souvenirs.
5. There are five Fluff Festival Coins in the game.
After finding all the coins, there are five of them to find (one for each character). The first time you find a coin, Diddy Kong will appear on the beach and give you a Mushroom-shaped hat for your hat collection. Each time you find another, a new figure will appear on the beach to give you a Mushroom shaped souvenir and award you with a souvenir shaped like that character.
6. You can earn up to five Mushroom shaped souvenirs.
After finding all five Fluff Festival Coins, there will be a Mushroom shaped souvenir for each of the five characters in addition to the original two. These are all awarded when you find all the coins but you can only get a maximum of five mushroom shaped souvenirs in Super Mario Sunshine because that’s how many are required to access the real secret behind them.
7. Fluff Festival Coins are expensive to trade for a souvenir.
When present, this coin is worth 10 coins, but it can be traded for a Mushroom shaped souvenir that is worth 100 coins. This means that after finding all five Fluff Festival Coins, you can either trade them all or keep them in the game as they’re likely to be hard to find after the first time you find them (which will probably only be once if you play through the game).
