“Plated in what is almost certainly gold, this private, solar-powered hot tub was likely overpaid for by a rich Toad who forgot that he was made of paper.”

The Basin is a Thing in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It is found behind the Secret Door in Rugged Road. It remains in Mario's Album until it is turned into a Sticker at a Sling-a-Thing station. Once it has been used as a sticker, it returns to its original position. It can also be purchased from the Shady Toad for 150 Coins.

The basin is a medium-sized sticker, taking up 1.5×1.5 squares in Mario's album. If and when it is used in battle, as with the Square Can and Drum, Mario tilts his head up to the sky as the basin's shadow covers the enemies. After a moment, it falls on them, inflicting some damage. The player may press A Button as it collides with the enemies to increase the damage.

The basin can also be placed into the Sticker Museum as #21, alongside the other "crush"-based Things. Its basic description notes its outdated use and overall gratitude for modern plumbing. Its museum description identifies it as an expensive solar hot tub made useless by the fact that everyone is made of paper.

A similar-type Basin appears in Paper Mario: Color Splash, found within Fort Cobalt and required for completion.
