Paper Mario description Delivers a blow that makes an enemy dizzy and unable to move.

Dizzy Attack is a Badge available in Paper Mario. It is found on Pleasant Path between Toad Town and Koopa Village, inside a red ? Block. If Mario equips it, his Spin Dash can be used offensively; if he Spin Dashes into an opponent before a battle, that enemy (which is always the one at the front) is inflicted with the Dizzy status effect, which prevents it from attacking for a single turn.

Merluvlee's predictions in Paper Mario[edit]

  • "I see...a Dizzy Attack Badge. On the path from Toad Town to Koopa Village, before you cross the first bridge, you see a red Block floating in the air. You jump and hit it, and the Badge falls from above."
