Red Coins are found in multiple Mario games, generally serving the same purpose. They are found in sets of eight in almost all cases, the collection of which grants the player a reward, varying by game. Perhaps the most well-known example is Super Mario 64, where a Power Star is the reward; in Super Mario Sunshine, this is a Shine Sprite instead, while the New Super Mario Bros. series grants the player a life or power-up upon collection within the given time limit. Some Red Coins are all over the level, while some are all in one room, with a puzzle to it.
