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 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 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.
