Super Mario RPG Melody Bay music puzzle solutions
Super Mario RPG test your music knowledge via the Tadpole pond music puzzle inside Melody Bay.
After arriving in Melody Bay, if you turn right and step on the stone, you will be greeted by tadpoles swimming on a music chart. Jumping on the tadpole will stop it from moving so you can make up a melody. You earn rewards by composing specific melodies, so make sure you come back to Melody Bay every now and then to play a new song for the local composer.
Don’t worry if you miss the timing to jump on the tadpole, as it will swim back and forth between the lines.
For each song you play, you’ll unlock better healing items that you can purchase at The Juice Bar in Tadpole Pond.
