Super Mario RPG Remake brings the legendary SNES version of the game back to life for the modern audience. It is a faithful remake, featuring many of the puzzles that led to fans falling in love with Mario in his early days. Some of the puzzles can be really challenging, requiring players to think outside the box or really use their brain power.
One of these challenges is the Melody Bay Tadpole Song Puzzle, which can be really confusing. It will require you to play the Frog Sage’s Suite No 18. In this guide, we will show you exactly how you can play it so that you can solve the puzzle. Let’s dive in and play some music!
Melody Bay Tadpole Song Puzzle Solution
The start of the puzzle is marked by a Stone at the edge of the water. When you stand on the stone, you will need to start positioning tadpoles into position to ensure that the melody is the one that the Toadofsky is looking for.
However, without the proper hint, you will not be able to get the Melody right.
So, at this stage, you will want to turn right from the stone. Keep following the path ahead until you see a tadpole at the edge of the water.
Approach the tadpole and Talk to him. At the end of the conversation, he will give you a hint to solving the Melody Bay Tadpole Puzzle.
You will need to have the melody that you play in the puzzle match the famous melody:
So La Mi Re Do Re Do Re
Now return to the stone and stand on it to start the puzzle. You can actually get an idea of the correct melody by trying out the puzzle a few times and getting it to match with the hint given by the tadpole. Alternatively, you can refer to the list below with numbers:
- Mi = 1
- Re = 2
- Do = 3
- Ti = 4
- La = 5
- So = 6
- Fa = 7
Each number refers to the position that the tadpole will be in during the puzzle. The Tadpole starts in the position 1 and then progressively starts going lower until it reaches 7. You can confirm the Tadpole’s position by jumping to the next Tadpole.
To get the Melody Bay Tadpole Song right, you will need to follow the following pattern: 6-5-1-2-3-2-3-2. The positions of the Tadpole at the end of the puzzle should look like the image shown below.
If you’ve gotten the positions right, the song should play perfectly. Toadofsky will be really happy and will congratulate you for getting the tune right!
In return for your efforts, he will reward you with the Alto Card. And that is how you solve the Melody Bay Tadpole Puzzle!
That’s everything you need to do to solve the Melody Bay Tadpole Puzzle. This Puzzle can admittedly be quite challenging as there is no immediate reference of the Tadpole’s position to the song, even if you have gotten the hunt. But once you understand how the position of the Tadpoles work alongside the Melody, you should be able to get this puzzle right pretty easily.
