- “The water jug was like...runnething OVER, y'know? Oh, to bring back those days...”
- —Toad, Paper Mario: Sticker Star
The Faucet (known as the Tap in British English) is a Thing in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It is the second-strongest of the water-based Things and is found at Water's Edge Way, supplying water to a cardboard Bowser. To access it, Mario must pull the Bowser Tape off of a nearby wall to open a passage. He must jump on top of it multiple times to stop the water. This causes the Comet Piece scrap to fall down and the Faucet to rattle off the wall. It remains in Mario's Album until it is turned into a sticker at a Sling-a-Thing station. Once it has been used as a sticker, it returns to its original position. It can also be purchased from the Shady Toad for 120 coins and sold as a sticker for 20 coins.
As a sticker, it takes up 1.5×1.5 squares in the Album. When it is used in battle, the camera focuses on the enemies and the spout of the Faucet appears in the top-left corner. Water begins to pour out and floods the battlefield. Once the water fills the entire screen, two fish jump out and the water quickly recedes. Any remaining enemies are made Soggy. The player can repeatedly press as the water fills the screen to increase the damage dealt.
The Faucet is needed to revitalize the oasis at Damp Oasis. After the sandstorm subsides, Mario must enter the oasis, paperize near the water jug, and stick the Faucet. The handle turns and fills the dried pool. The area beings to flood, causing Mario to panic After the water recedes, the pool is filled, the vegetation comes back to life, and the building becomes repainted. The Toad floats by on the water and thanks Mario for restoring the oasis.
The Faucet can be placed into the Sticker Museum as #12, alongside the other water-based Things.
- American English Sticker Museum plaque: "This hydroelectric-dam release valve may once have functioned well, but those days are long past. It now requires a leaping Toad to activate."
- British English Sticker Museum plaque: "An apparatus that regulates water flow when its handle is turned. Its giant size makes it impractical, as powerful spin jumps are required to operate it."
