The Dizzy Dial is a very common item from the Paper Mario series. It has a high chance of making all enemies Dizzy and is most effective against flying enemies. Bosses are extremely resistant to it, however. While the Dizzy Dial is sold in a few stores, it has a high drop rate by enemies. It is also mandatory to buy at least one Dizzy Dial in order to gain access to Don Pianta's headquarters.

Tayce T. can create Dizzy Dials by cooking with a Strange Leaf, optionally in combination with the Stinky Herb. This may be a reference to certain plants that can cause psychedelic experiences, or 'dizziness', when ingested.
