Wiki of Mana

“Today my master bribed the Dudbears to get some treasure. Oh, so that's how the treasure-hunters get what they want. I see.”
Cactus Diaries, entry 52

Buried Treasure (南海の砂浜 Nankai no sunahama, lit. South Sea Beach) is a quest and storyline in Legend of Mana. It is part of a series of events that include Cap'n Tusk and his crew (Pirate Penguin Arc). It revolves around the whereabouts of a treasure in Madora Beach.


Cap'n Tusk will reafirm to the Hero/Heroine how Dudbears like money, and give the player 15 halo coins. The player must bribe the Dudbears with them. Cap'n mentions to "quit right there and come back" if the Hero/Heroine is to lose all the coins.

At the east path right at the entrance, a line of Dudbears will be blocking the passage. The player must bribe the middle Dudbear with a coin for them to disperse.

After that, heading into the cave, there will be a portion of Dudbears and Penguins, the later always complaining about how Dudbears "are so annoying". The player must arrange 3 Li'l Bottles and bribe the right-exit Dudbear with them. Only one Dudbear, most close to the entrance, will give bottles in exchange of coins.

Heading to the far right, the player must trade 2 bottles for 2 Pucashells with a Dudbear roaming around the center, and give one of them to the Dudbear guarding the top-left exit.

At the far left cave, the player can give once again a Pucashell to the far-left Dudbear.

Finally arriving at the Queen's Caves, the player will find the treasure, but be immediatelly stopped by Roger, who claims the treasure. The Hero/Heroine will surrounded by his paws, and if to give them nothing, will be taken back by them without the treasure. If the player gives a Halo Coin, however, the Dudbears will be bribed at Roger's protests, who will be the one to be taken back by them this time.

Regardless of this final action, Cap'n Tusk will give the Hero/Heroine a crab and AltenaAlloy. The treasure, unlike in the other events of this nature, is not revealed to the player this time.
