The Electro Pop is a recipe and an item found in the Paper Mario series. It is a lollipop with a swirl in electric colors.

History[edit]

Paper Mario[edit]

The Electro Pop first appears in Paper Mario, where it is depicted as a brown lollipop with a yellow swirl. Tayce T. can create one with a Volt Shroom and a Cake Mix (which can be obtained in Shy Guy's Toy Box). It can be considered a helpful improvement on the Volt Shroom, and can be sold anywhere for 25 coins.

The item's description states that it replenishes 15 FP and, if used in battle, also electrifies Mario. However, due to a bug, the item sets Mario's FP to a value equal to his current HP plus 15 (e.g. if Mario's HP is at 5 and FP is at 8, the Electro Pop will set Mario's FP to 20 (5 + 15), effectively restoring 12 FP); however, the FP regain animation will still show "15" regardless of the amount actually restored.[1][2]

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door[edit]

Electro Pops also appear in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and are depicted as black lollipops with an orange swirl. Zess T. can make one from a Volt Shroom and a Cake Mix (which can be obtained from the Pianta Parlor). Mario and his partners can use this item both in and out of battle, replenishing fifteen FP and electrifying the user. Like in Paper Mario, this item can be sold for 25 coins.

Super Paper Mario[edit]

Electro-Pops appear again in Super Paper Mario. Saffron can make one from a Thunder Rage. As FP doesn’t appear in this game, it instead electrifies Mario and co. for 40 seconds. It can be sold for 82 coins.
