Fast is a positive status condition in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and its Nintendo Switch remake. Two bosses have the ability to power themselves up with this status condition, although Goombella can use Rally Wink to bestow it upon Mario as well (however, it will only last for one turn in this case). Indicated by a small "x2" above the affected character's head, or by two sky blue triangles in the remake, it allows the character to act twice in one turn. Macho Grubba bestows this status condition upon himself at the start of his battle with Mario, and Beldam will occasionally use her magic to grant it to herself or to one of her allies during her second fight against Mario and his partners at the Palace of Shadow.

If a target has the Fast status effect and is inflicted with Slow, the two effects cancel each other out.

The Fast status effect was planned to appear in the original Paper Mario through an item called the Hustle Drink, but both the item and effect are unused in the final build.
