Mario Odyssey: Art Puzzles Solutions for Every Kingdom

In Super Mario Odyssey, you can find special Hint Art located in secret places in many Kingdoms. These Hint Arts often point to another Kingdom where you can find a Power Moon – often using tricky or vague clues to point the way.

Power Moons found through Hint Art can ONLY be revealed once the Hint Art has been read, and the Power Moon obtained will count towards the Kingdom where you first saw the Hint Art. For example, Art found in Lake Kingdom that points to a Power Moon in the Cascade Kingdom will go towards the Lake Kingdom total Power Moons.

For a list on all the Kingdoms with Hint Art, and where the solutions lead – see the list below:

The Cap Kingdom Power Moon 17 – Found with Cap Kingdom Art is one of the Power Moons in the Cap Kingdom.

You can find this Power Moon not in Cap Kingdom, but only in the Moon Kingdom using hint art found in Quadrant B3, outside of the Main Plaza. This Power Moon can only be obtained after completing the main story.

Head to the stairs up to the large bridge to Top Hat Tower to find a small piece of art on the wall. The abstract art depicts several figures looking at the Earth from the Moon.

Head to the Moon Kingdom and look towards the Earth near the Odyssey to find a group of people from different kingdoms all watching the Earth. The art depicts the moon hiding in front of the figure second from the left – a Lochlady.

Ground pound the area in front of the Lochlady to find a Power Moon – one that counts for the Cap Kingdom list.
