The Earth Vellumental Temple is a location in Paper Mario: The Origami King. It can only be accessed by recovering all five Shell Stones. Being the home of the Earth Vellumental, it is turtle-themed.

If Mario comes here while Bob-omb in the party, he will wait at the entrance, claiming that he is "claustrophobic".


The temple starts with four guides, which cost ten coins to listen to, but are optional. At the end of a path, the player has to pay fifty coins to hear a guide talk about the Earth Vellumental's weak spot, which is the tail. When the guide is finished the player can knock down the wall behind it with the hammer to proceed. Next, there is a Save Block before some pillars that move vertically. In the next room, some origami Koopa Troopas ambush the player, and after defeating them, there are some Earth Vellumental-like platforms that stretch their heads horizontally. Next is a room where the pillars push Mario off, where the player has to go into a hole in one of the pillars. Then, in the next room, there is a Save Block, and many fire traps. After passing the Fire Traps, another Save Block appears and after breaking a rock, a Fire Trap falls and Mario has to get in one of the holes to survive; if he gets crushed, he gets an instant Game Over. After that, a MAX UP Heart appears before a Save Block and the boss room.
