Drybake Desert is level 2-1 in the game Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It comprises of a vast desert filled with quicksand and an underground area.


The pyramid.

The level starts in a grassy area where a Goomba can be found guarding the Sticker inside the block. This is not a requirement though. When the player continues on, a huge gate blocking the way to the desert. Using Paperize, a Jump, Hammer, Mushroom, Poison Mushroom, Fire or Ice Flower and Spike Helmet stickers must be placed in the gate to open it. The gate opens to reveal a short cave area inhabited by Swoops and a single Buzzy Beetle that can make the First Strike if it sees Mario. The cave exits to the desert itself, where a Save Block and Heart Block can be found, along with a Sombrero Guy. Traversing over the hill will reveal the Traveling Toad being attacked by a gang of Paragoombas. Once saved, the grateful Toad will give a Shiny Mushroom sticker as a reward.

The next area is an area with a few quicksand flows and a hollow cave with coins. Pokeys are first found here. After that, there is a vast quicksand hill with Pokeys following the current. The Soda item is located at the downhill section, and south of that is a sandfall with two striped cacti, which indicate the hidden cave area is nearby. Sinking into the quicksand between the cacti will take Mario to a cave area with one of three Tablet Piece scraps. Nearby is a sand geyser that will take Mario back up to the divide of the sand flow. The flow then descends to the pyramid, where an HP-Up Heart can be found, along with the Comet Piece.

Secret Door[edit]

The Secret Door is located behind the sole Sombrero Guy on the pyramid. It contains the Car Battery.
