|"Grills food to perfection."|
|First appearance||Paper Mario: Color Splash (2016)|
The Charcoal Grill is a Thing in Paper Mario: Color Splash. It is found within the parallel world of Fortune Island. Rather than a volcano, the room contains the legendary captain cooking with the grill. If Mario speaks to him, the captain assumes he was drawn in by the aroma and tells him to wait until the food is done. After Mario wrings out the grill, the captain becomes angry, telling him it was almost ready. He settles on following Mario around closely as payback, leading to his encounter with the Violet Passage captain.
Once the Charcoal Grill has been picked up, it is wrung out, refilling Mario's paint and becoming a colorless card. It is kept until it is used in battle, after which it returns to its original position. It can also be purchased from the Wringer for 300 coins. A replica card of the Charcoal Grill also exists, and may be collected from the Battle Spin or Prize Pipe Paths. The Charcoal Grill may also be placed into the Prisma Museum, where it can be tested.
When the Charcoal Grill is used in battle, the scenery quickly changes to a sunny countryside theme. Mario, along with the enemies, is placed on an enormous grill. Just as smoke starts to appear, Mario walks off, leaving the enemies to get completely engulfed in the flames that emerge immediately afterward. The player can repeatedly press while it's grilling to increase the damage dealt. If an enemy is defeated, it turns to dust and fades away.
The Charcoal Grill is essential for cooking the Steak. It must be used after the Salt and Pepper and before the Lemon to grill the Steak to perfection. The Peddler Toad sells that Charcoal Grill for 300 coins if Mario talks to him after serving the Mamma Mia Pizza and before cooking the steak.
