This is a list of weapons and battle-related items in Paper Mario: The Origami King.

Display of weapons and items for purchase in Toad Town.

There are a total of 3 weapon types, each with multiple variations:

  • Boots
  • Hammers
  • Hurlhammers

Boots excel at attacking enemies in a straight line regardless of height from the ground, but are vulnerable to spiky enemies. Iron Boots and its more powerful variants are able to bypass this limitation. Hammers are more powerful than boots and focus on delivering a single strike to a group of 4 enemies in a 2x2 pattern, but lack range and are unable to reach enemies in the air. Hurlhammers are thrown hammers that deal damage in a straight line similar to boots.

Worn out Iron Boots

Unlike past entries in the Paper Mario series, weapons have durability and will break after extended use, with exception to the Standard Boots and Standard Hammer. The damage of each weapon depends on a player's Action Command timing and Mario's total HP. Everytime Mario's health reaches a multiple of 20, all weapons gain 1 point of extra damage overall, with a maximum possible increase of 8 damage points at 200 HP. A total of 99 weapons can be held at any given time.

There are a total of 11 items relevant to battles. The majority of items are used offensively, while Mushrooms and its variants are reserved for recovering health. Items retain their single-use function from previous entries, and have individual carrying limits.


Note: Prices listed do not account for any discounts via the Membership Card, nor the automatic price reduction applied after dying multiple times. Damage values shown do not account for x1.5 and x2 striking power multipliers.
