The Vim Factory is located in Toadwood Forest, which is part of the Mushroom Kingdom. The Vim Factory only makes an appearance in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. The factory was created by the Shroobs during their raid on the Mushroom Kingdom. The Shroobs discovered that the "Vim" created by Toads could be combined with chemicals to produce the fuel needed to operate much of the Shroob technology. It was created before the Princess Peach of the present arrived in the past.
The Shroobs found a way to make the trees of the forest grab Toads and hold them tight, sucking out their vim as they did so.
Protecting the factory are the Hammer Bros., whose minds are being controlled by Shroobs through helmets. As the babies save them from their fate as slaves, these Hammer Bros. teach them how to use a hammer in return. The Shroobs also enlist a Wiggler-like Shroob named Swiggler, who transports the fuel to the Shroob's UFOs. Swiggler is also a guardian of a piece of the Cobalt Star.
