"Like a book but with more stories. Also more versatile: lay it out to sit on, roll it up to swat flies, or eat fish and chips out of it."

“A testament to the quiet strength of paper power, this triumphant rolled tube of separate sheets symbolizes how unity can bring forth might.”

The Newspaper is a Thing in Paper Mario: Sticker Star that is found through Whitecap Beach's Secret Door. It is a Newspaper named "The Mario Times" rolled up to resemble a bat. 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 100 Coins.

As a sticker, the Newspaper takes up 1 square in Mario's album. When it is used in battle, the background disappears and a scoreboard will appear, followed by the Newspaper, which will hit all enemies on the battlefield one at a time. Additionally, if the player mashes A Button as the Newspaper is about to hit the enemies, they take additional damage. It is the weakest of the club-based Things in the game.

The Newspaper can also be placed into the Sticker Museum as #17, alongside the Toy Bat and the Bat. Its description identifies it as a rolled tube of sheets of paper.
