Elusive badge!, originally parsed Elusive Badge!, is the sixteenth Trouble Center mission in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, initiated by Ms. Mowz (identified as ??? in the Trouble Center). It is first available after clearing Chapter 4.


Mario must first head to the rooftop of Zess T.'s house in Rogueport Square, where he finds Ms. Mowz, who informs Mario of an "elusive" badge hidden in Hooktail's lair, and one has to "use the wind" to find the badge. Mario must travel to Hooktail Castle in Petal Meadows, make his way up to Hooktail's lair (where he defeated Hooktail earlier), and use Flurrie's ability at the center of the lair to uncover a chest containing an Attack FX B badge. Afterward, Mario must return to Rogueport and present the badge to Ms. Mowz, who reveals that she had hidden the badge herself to test Mario's skills in finding a badge she had craftily hidden. She allows him to keep the badge, joins his party, and the trouble is solved. The badge cannot be found in Hooktail's lair before taking on the trouble.
