Located in Glitzville, the Glitz Pit is an arena in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Mario takes on the fighter name "The Great Gonzales" and must fight his way through in Chapter 3. There are many fighters here, including Rawk Hawk, KP Pete, Bandy Andy, the Armored Harriers, The Koopinator, Hamma, Bamma, & Flare, and even Bowser at one point, who barges into the ring and fights Mario and his teammates after they defeated the Magikoopa Masters. Grubba, the promoter, used the Gold Star to power his machine that's hidden under the arena. Ever since Jolene's brother, Prince Mush found out about his machine, Prince Mush mysteriously disappeared, so Jolene went undercover and enlisted Mario and his friends' help to defeat Grubba.
The Glitz Pit can be accessed by either the first doorway in the main hall, or the second story door, up a flight of stairs. Mario can talk to spectators but can't get through the dense crowd. The fighters change whenever Mario enters the arena. While watching them, all they do is bump into each other.
Seven Wonders of the Glitz Pit
According to Bandy Andy, the fighters within the Glitz Pit are said to pass stories of a set of mysteries that surround the arena, at least prior to Mario's interference. Bandy Andy himself sets out to study these mysteries, but is forcibly silenced by Grubba when he learns too much. Throughout the subplot, all seven wonders are encountered, and most of them are explained.
In addition, during Chapter 3 the Hand-It-Overs and the KP Koopas are temporarily removed from the roster and replaced with two new teams:
