Target One

Kiss Thief is a move that can be learned by Ms. Mowz in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The move allows her to steal any item or badge the enemy is holding. Of note is that when the move is used, members of the audience may still flee even if the Stylish Move is performed.

Ms. Mowz will run up towards the enemy as a gauge fills up. The player must press the A Button button once it passed the 'OK' marker; if done correctly, she will steal the item from the enemy's grasp. If the player cannot carry anymore items or badges, Ms. Mowz will fail to steal the item/badge regardless of the player's success. If the enemy is not holding an item, then a coin will usually be stolen. However, if an enemy has a chance of holding a badge or item, then Ms. Mowz has a small chance of stealing that badge or item if the enemy is not holding anything. Therefore, it is possible to steal rare badges by simply using Kiss Thief repeatedly.

The attack has one Stylish Move that is performed by pressing A Button while Ms. Mowz is running toward the enemy.
