Chef Kinopio[1] is a yellow Toad who works at the restaurant in Overlook Tower in Paper Mario: The Origami King. He is identical to the Tangerino Grill Chef from Paper Mario: Color Splash. When Mario and Olivia first arrive at Overlook Tower, he is trapped on the second floor between two crates, worried about the state of his restaurant. After Mario defeats the Folded Soldier Mini Goombas, the chef is pleased and rewards Mario with a bag of confetti that he can use to patch up a large hole and reach the third floor.
