Paper Mode is one of Mario's transformations seen in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and the second one obtained. Similarly to his other origami-themed forms, it is granted to him in the form of a "curse" from one of the black chest demons in Hooktail Castle.

Paper Mode allows Mario (and his party) to turn sideways, using his paper-thin body to fit through small gaps. It can be activated by holding R Button, with Mario returning to normal once R Button is released. While in Paper Mode, Mario moves more slowly, and cannot use his hammer, Spin Jump, Spring Jump, or use partner abilities.

The Paper Game, a minigame in the Pianta Parlor, utilizes this move.

In Super Paper Mario, the Pixl Slim has a similar ability.
