- “Bluuurg... Body...went...numb... Stupid...cake... Hate...cake... Never...eat...cake...again...”
- —Shellshock, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
It is given to Mario by a "fan". If Mario chooses to eat the cake, his active partner eats a portion of it first. Before Mario can have the remaining portion, that partner starts to feel sick, and Mario must face his next fight alone, after which his partner recovers. Before fighting with Rawk Hawk, he reveals that he has tricked them into eating the poisoned cake. If Mario decides not to eat the cake (though Mario's partner will say otherwise), Shellshock eats it instead and thus is the one to be poisoned.
