Sticker Museum plaque, Paper Mario: Sticker Star

The Mini Vacuum is a Thing in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It is found behind the Secret Door in Jungle Rapids. The outline of the Secret Door itself may be found at the very beginning of the level. Mario must head southeast to find the hidden outline, as he may then place a Secret Door onto it to enter the room containing the Mini Vacuum.

Once collected, the Mini Vacuum 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 100 Coins.

The Mini Vacuum is a small sticker, taking up only one square in Mario's album. If and when it is used in battle, it hops onscreen as upbeat music begins to play. Slightly obscured in the top left corner of the screen, the Mini Vacuum proceeds to inhale all enemies in the battlefield. It then pops open to unleash the enemies, albeit some damage to all of them. The player may repeatedly tap A Button as the enemies are being suctioned to increase the overall damage dealt. Notably, the Mini Vacuum is ineffective against enemies such as Piranha Plants due to them being anchored to the ground.

The Mini Vacuum can also be placed into the Sticker Museum as #8 as the smallest of the suction-based Things. Its museum description notes it as the smallest of the vacuum-related Things, as well as being portable and quick to use.

British English description[edit]
