Not to be confused with Gust Bellows.
"Ever find yourself in a chilly medieval castle, struggling to get a fire going? Then you need some bellows!"
First appearance Paper Mario: Sticker Star (2012)
“Requiring an entire platoon of Toads to operate, this primitive pinwheel motivator is a monument to inefficiency.”
Sticker Museum plaque, Paper Mario: Sticker Star

The Bellows are a Thing in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. They are found behind the Secret Door in Whammino Mountain. Once collected, they remain in Mario's Album until they are turned into a Sticker at a Sling-a-Thing station. Once they have been used as a sticker, they return to their original position. They can also be purchased from the Shady Toad for 80 Coins.

The Bellows are a small sticker, taking up only one square in Mario's album. If and when they are used in battle, they appear onscreen, blowing a powerful whirlwind centering the enemies. This may cause them to go flying upward, landing after a moment to receive damage. This damage is increased if the player presses A Button repeatedly as the wind picks up.

The Bellows may also be placed into the Sticker Museum as #5. They are the smallest of the wind-based Things, alongside the Paper Fan and Fan. They are described as outdated and inefficient to operate.

The Bellows, along with the other wind-based Things, may come in great handy during the third stage of fighting Bowser in Bowser's Sky Castle. Once a cold-based Thing has been used to freeze the Lava Bubbles, the player may use the Bellows to direct them at Bowser and end the stage instantly.
