Ol' Grandsappy is an old tree in Paper Mario: The Origami King. Mario and Olivia encounter him in Whispering Woods when they sit on a tree stump, which is actually Ol' Grandsappy. The Sap Sisters tell Mario that he is very sick because some Toads chopped him down. Mario then has to find a Soul Seed to help revive him. After Mario obtains the Soul Seed, he hears Ol' Grandsappy scream in pain. Mario returns to him and finds that Ol' Grandsappy has been ambushed and eaten up by some Paper Macho Goombas. Mario uses confetti on him to bring him back to life and gives him the Soul Seed, which makes him sing a song and grow into Sweet Sap Loggins, a large tree and a younger version of himself. In the credits, one of the photos shows some Toads decorating Sweet Sap Loggins with flower wreaths.

A Collectible Treasure of Ol' Grandsappy (No. 3) can be found in a chest inside a cabin in Toad's BBQ Foodeatery once the area's caretaker returns home. When collected, the caretaker mentions how Ol' Grandsappy was the biggest tree they logged.


  • Collectible Treasure No. 3: "The withered form of Ol' Grandsappy, reduced to a mere stump. This trunk contains zero funk."
Sweet Sap Loggins
  • Collectible Treasure No. 105: "The vibrant form of Sweet Sap Loggins, Ol' Grandsappy's stage name from the glory days."
