Lineland is the setting of Chapter 1 in Super Paper Mario. Its skies are full of strange, surreal mathematical formulas, such as (translated into literary form) "Fire Flower is greater than or equal to some kind of Block divided by Warp Pipe."

Lineland's Chapter 1-1 pays a homage to the original Super Mario Bros. with its level design, which resembled the classic World 1-1 through its positioning of items, ? Blocks, and enemies like Goombas. The music is also remixed from the Super Mario Bros. overworld theme and the Super Mario World overworld theme. In this chapter, Mario learns the Flip technique from the wizard Bestovius.

In Chapter 1-2, Mario traverses a huge mountain and ends up at Yold Town. There, he meets the Pixl Thoreau. In Chapter 1-3, Mario journeys through a hostile desert and battles Count Bleck's thug, O'Chunks, for the first time.

In the final level, Mario moves through mysterious ruins, discovering many secrets left by the Ancients. After surfacing, Mario meets Fracktail, a robotic guardian that protects the Pure Heart. Dimentio strikes Fracktail's antenna, resulting in a malfunction that causes Fracktail to attack Mario. He serves as Lineland's Chapter Boss. After destroying Fracktail, Mario meets Merlumina, the ghost of an Ancient, who tells Mario a bit of the Light Prophecy before surrendering the second Pure Heart.
