Love Slap is an attack that can be used by Ms. Mowz during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. To perform it, the player has to repeatedly tilt (Control Stick) left and right alternatively to fill the gauge within the time limit. After the time is up, Ms. Mowz will slap the selected enemy three times, dealing piercing damage equivalent to how far the gauge was filled. This attack can only hit the frontmost grounded enemy, and if the targeted enemy is spiky or deals contact damage, Mowz will take damage and have the attack canceled out.

After Ms. Mowz is halfway to returning to her starting position after performing the move, the player can press A Button to execute a Stylish move; however, due to incorrect coding, it will not affect Star Power regeneration. Furthermore the non-damaging slaps Mowz does before her final slap displease audience members (as evidenced by audible booing), and may even contribute to losing them.
