Happy Heart is a badge in Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. In Paper Mario, it is found near Raphael the Raven's tree in Jade Jungle, and can be bought from Merlow for eight Star Pieces. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, it can be found in Petal Meadows (in an area accessible only through a Pipe), bought from Dazzle for four Star Pieces, or potentially dropped by or stolen from Koopa Troopas, Shady Koopas, and Dark Koopas. Its effects differ slightly between games: if Mario equips it in Paper Mario, he has a 1 in 2 chance of recovering one HP at the end of his turn, and equipping multiple copies of Happy Heart increases the number of HP it heals incrementally. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Mario has a 1 in 3 chance of recovering HP at the end of every turn, and each equipped copy also gives Mario a 1 in 3 chance of restoring HP.

Merluvlee's predictions in Paper Mario[edit]

  • "I see...a Happy Heart Badge. In the depths of the jungle, there is a tree atop which Raphael the Raven is said to make his home. A huge vine winds around it, and when you walk to its end, you'll find the Badge."
  • "I see...a Happy Heart Badge. There is a child upstairs in the fortune-teller's house on Shooting Star Summit. Hey! I'm that fortune-teller! Anyway, the child is my brother, Merlow. He will trade Star Pieces for Badges. Head upstairs to see him!"
