Art Attack is a Special Move in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door that uses up 4 SP. It is available after getting the Ruby Star at the end of Chapter 4. The name of the move is a play on the words "art" and "heart attack".

The Action Command requires the player to control the Ruby Star with the Control Stick, drawing circles around enemies. If an enemy is completely encircled, it suffers 3 HP of damage, but any less than that will reduce the damage dealt. Players can use smaller enemies to their advantage, as there is limited time to draw as many circles as possible. Art Attack pierces enemies' defenses, making it very powerful.
