Heart Finder is a badge in Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. In Paper Mario, it can be bought from Merlow for twelve Star Pieces. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, it can be bought from Dazzle for six Star Pieces and can be rarely dropped by Shady Koopas, Dark Koopas, and Elite X-Nauts after a battle. If equipped, more hearts appear after a successful battle. This badge works alongside other badges that affect dropped items after battle, such as Flower Finder and Item Hog.
