Toad Town Tunnels.

The Toad Town Tunnels are the sewer system under Toad Town in the game Paper Mario. They are a massive series of passages with Warp Pipes and Blue Pipes that connect to all major areas of the game, with the exception of Shy Guy's Toy Box and Flower Fields, both of which are accessed directly from Toad Town. The main pipe to the tunnels is in the area of Toad Town with Tayce T.'s house and the entrance to Forever Forest. The secondary entrance/exit is in the blue house above the main entrance.

Much like Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door's Rogueport Sewers, the Toad Town Tunnels have few areas available at the start of the game. The more Items, powers and party members Mario gets, the more areas of the sewer Mario can travel to.

Three Blooper fights occur here, and many Badges, Star Pieces, and Super Blocks are scattered around the area. The salesman Rip Cheato can be found at the second entrance/exit.

Item Description Image
PaperMario Items SuperShroom.png
Super Shroom
In the area one screen east from the entrance, the hidden ? Block is in the middle of the gap in the row of blocks. PMHiddenBlock7.png
1 Coin each In the area one screen west of the blue Warp Pipe to Boo's Mansion is a gap between the two high platforms with the Super Block on the western one. There are three hidden ? Blocks in this area. Using the blue movable block, Mario should move it to the middle of the left side, the center, and the middle of the right side and jump from the movable block at those spots to reveal them. Alternatively, Mario can also hit the invisible blocks from the tiles without using the movable block using the Tornado Jump if he's equipped with the Ultra Boots. PMHiddenBlock8.png

In the area two screens east of where the player obtains the Ultra Boots, near the starting pipe, Mario should jump at the center of the pathway sticking out to reveal the hidden ? Block. PMHiddenBlock9.png

In the next area, the hidden ? Block is between the two sets of three blocks. The Ultra Boots is needed to hit the block. PMHiddenBlock12.png
1 Coin each In the area two screens east of the blue Warp Pipe to Yoshi's Village is a gap between two high platforms, with a doorway leading to Shiver City in the east. There are four hidden ? Blocks in this area. From the visible ? Block touching the western platform, Mario should move three block lengths from it and Tornado Jump to reveal the first hidden ? Block, then continue to use the same method for the next blocks to reveal them all. PMHiddenBlock13.png

Area Tattles[edit]

  • Ah, Toad Town Tunnels! Visit its scenic filthy streams that lead to who-knows-where! It's spectacularly disgusting! Come stay awhile! If you're not totally grossed out the first night, you stay for free!
  • You know, even though these tunnels have many sections you can always count on one thing: filthy, stinking water. Would it be too much to ask to get out of here before the stench knocks me out? Seriously! I'm about to wig out!
  • Ugh! I wonder where the filthy water is going? This'd better not drain into the sea or the river! I may have to alert the Goomba Environmental Board!
  • We're in Toad Town Tunnels. Eew... I wonder what's making the water drip from up there? At best, I guess this place could be called "damp". Although "dank" is more like it.
  • Let's see...disgusting flows of water...dripping ceiling... Yup, it's gross down here! Can we leave now? I... I'm really uncomfortable.
  • That's a strange platform. What do you think'll happen if we climb on board? Are you worried about where the platform will end up? That's never stopped you before...
  • You know, I really don't like foul water dripping on me. Ugh! That one hit the back of my neck! Blech! Where's it dripping from? Can we get out of here or what? I hate it here!
  • This is a strange, dark place. Who'd think that a place like this could exist beneath lovely old Toad Town?
  • The cool air is certainly nice and refreshing... but it's too dark, it smells awful and I have a bad feeling about this place. Let's move!
  • Uh... I think this is a sewer. You know...the Toad Town sewer. Under Toad Town. What am I saying? You know! You're a plumber, after all!
  • Oh, gross! I've never seen so much sewage in my life! Eew... floating garbage, too! Talk about disgusting!
  • I'm sure that some nasty things live down here in the dark. We should be ready to defend ourselves in case of a surprise attack.
  • Oh, gross! Look, Mario! The water's filthy! And look! Garbage! These tunnels are a total nightmare. Let's keep moving and get out fast.
  • Still Toad Town Tunnels... We've been in these tunnels so long that it's starting to feel like... I'm becoming a mole... haha!
  • It looks like just another passage in the tunnels. I get the feeling... that something valuable rests around here... Can't you feel it in your bones? Do Goombas have bones? Anyway, something big is near... I'm almost positive.
  • "It smells of treasure here." How was that? That was my Kolorado imitation. Any good? Mario? Hello?
  • It just keeps getting grosser down here, huh, Mario?
  • Where are we...? Are we lost or what? We've been down here so long... You know, I didn't know that adventuring would be this gross.
  • Boy, who could live down here? What a crazy dude!
  • It's a small room with a single pipe in the center. Don't quote me, but I'm betting that the pipe goes somewhere.
  • The tunnel is freezing! I should've worn a sweater! What do you say we go someplace a bit warmer?
