Flamm, Super Paper Mario

Flamm is a map salesman found in B1 of Flopside, which is accessible after Chapter 5 during the game Super Paper Mario. His nickname is "The Map Chap". His Flipside counterpart is Flimm, and together, their names are a pun on "flimflam", which means "a swindle or other deceitful action". Once the player character buys one of his maps, the Maps tab of the in-game menu can be accessed.

By using Fleep in the various chapters where the X mark on a map is after buying one from Flamm, Mario and his pals can uncover various treasures, including the Catch Cards of the Chapter Bosses. Fleep will not work on these spots until the respective map is bought. The maps sold by Flamm are thought to have been collected by Heronicus's Flopside version, meaning he can somehow visit other dimensions, including Castle Bleck.
