Trivia[edit]

  • Most of the members of the Legion of Stationery include a color in their design that corresponds with the color of the streamer they are guarding. The lid of Colored Pencils' tin case is red, Rubber Band wears a few blue rubber bands across its chest, arms and forehead, Hole Punch has a yellow lever, Tape's dispenser is purple, and Scissors has green handles. Stapler is the only member that does not guard a streamer, so it is colored entirely black, the same color as the border for Origami Castle that shows up when checking the map.
  • The Legion of Stationery take appearance of realistic-looking 3D objects, much similar to the Things in Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Paper Mario: Color Splash.
