Mario after becoming Clipped by a Clip Guy
“Clipped! Can't move!”
Battle text, Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Clipped is a status effect which Mario can receive in Paper Mario: Sticker Star and is dealt only within battles against a Clip Guy. When a Clip Guy successfully clips the player, Mario's HP bar will shake, and he cannot move for 2 to 4 turns. A status icon appears, showing a fist covered by a red "X". Additionally, becoming Clipped will also prevent him from using stickers to defend and evade attacks as well as preventing attacks of his own. If Mario is Clipped and a Paint Guy comes up to Mario, it spills its paint immediately, without first pushing Mario. This status effect is similar to becoming Immobilized in earlier installments of the Paper Mario series.
