The Magnifying Glass is a Thing in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It is found in a secret area inside one of the tombstones in Sandshifter Ruins. The player simply needs to press A Button in front of it to have Mario pull it out and collect it. It remains in Mario's Album until it is turned into a Sticker at a Sling-a-Thing station. Once it has been used as a sticker, it returns to its original position. It can also be purchased from the Shady Toad for 200 Coins.

The Magnifying Glass is a small sticker, taking up only one square in Mario's album. It can be used in any battle for a high amount of damage. If this is the case, the enemies are burned by the sun's rays reflected through the glass. The player must press A Button repeatedly to deal higher damage to the enemies. Notably, the Magnifying Glass, like the other heat-related Things, is extra effective in battling Bowser Snow Statue.

The Magnifying Glass can also be placed into the Sticker Museum as #38, alongside the other heat-related Things. Its description identifies it as having burned an entire lab before its magnification properties were discovered.
