There's a Frog Coin in the Pipe Vault stage of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars that is in plain sight, but under a block that Mario cannot duck under. How do you get this coin?

A picture would make this question much better. – Raven Dreamer Mar 3 '11 at 6:55
Serious nostalgia, I haven't played a better rpg since Legend of the Seven Stars. – Sadly Not Mar 3 '11 at 15:43
Is this the spot you're thinking of? – authenticgeek Mar 3 '11 at 15:52

I believe the same old Super Mario run-and-duck trick works: run at the block using Y on your controller then press and hold down on the D-Pad just before running into the block.

Wouldn't pressing "down" just move you down? – Grace Note Mar 3 '11 at 18:47
It functions differently in this context, but that's part of why it can be frustrating to do. – Sadly Not Mar 3 '11 at 20:00
