First appearance

Mario gets the Professor's Room Key from the front desk

The Professor's Room Key is a special item in Paper Mario: The Origami King. Rather than being one of the many keys found throughout Luigi's quest for the Key to Peach's Castle and given to Mario, this key is obtained from the front desk at the Snif City hotel. Initially, Mario and Olivia speak to the Snifit receptionist looking for Professor Toad, who is able to decipher the messages appearing in the town and on the towers in the desert. The Snifit explains they are fully booked and informs them of the professor's absence. Taking their word that they are working together, he simply gives them the key to his hotel room. Mario and Olivia decide to go along with this and unlock the door to the professor's hotel room, the only one on the second floor. However, although this is the right key, it does not work, much to Olivia's confusion. A Snifit runs up and explains they relocated him to a smaller room on the first floor - in the right corridor, through the first door on the left. Although they do not find the professor here, they do find his journal, leading them to his whereabouts.
