HP Plus is a badge in Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. In Paper Mario, it is located in Koopa Village, on top of a stump that can only be reached by using Kooper, Forever Forest, hidden in a branch off of the main path, and can be bought from Rowf and Rhuff's badge shop for 150 coins. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, it can be found in Hooktail Castle, underneath the broken bridge at the castle's entrance, in the Riverside Station, accessed by using Mario's tube mode to roll under a gap in a set of stairs, bought from Pianta Parlor after getting the Special Card for 100 Pianta Tokens, and dropped by Gloombas, Spiky Gloombas, Paragloombas, Dark Paratroopas, Dull Bones, Dry Bones, and X-Nauts. If Mario equips it, his maximum HP is increased by five. The effect of the badge stacks if multiple copies of it are equipped. A variant of the badge exists called FP Plus that boosts Mario's FP, and another one called HP Plus P works exclusively for Mario's partner.

Merluvlee's prediction in Paper Mario[edit]

  • "I see...an HP Plus Badge. In Forever Forest, you take the path opposite the one where the most toadstools are glowing spookily. You know you're in the right place because you see a big honeycomb. You head for a clearing in the center. A red Block is waiting for you in the darkness."
  • "I see...an HP Plus Badge. It is for sale at the open-air shop in the plaza outside the castle gate."
  • "I see...an HP Plus Badge. On the path to the Fuzzies' forest from Koopa Village, you see a few stumps. The Badge lies atop one of them. You reach it by using a Koopa Troopa's skills."
