"A magic pipe that returns you to Flipside from afar."
First appearance Super Paper Mario (2007)
“With this, you will be able to return to Flipside from anywhere in the universe! Use it whenever you feel you must return in a hurry.”
Merlon, Super Paper Mario

The Return Pipe is an Important Thing in Super Paper Mario. It is given to Mario by Merlon at the start of the game after Mario places the red Pure Heart on the Heart Pillar. It resembles a red Warp Pipe with white stripes on it. The function of the Return Pipe is to return the player back to the Flipside Tower from any dimension at most times. However, in some places, such as Mimi's sweatshop in Merlee's Mansion, Sammer's Kingdom, The Underwhere, or the Pit of 100 Trials, or during Dimentio's game of "Magic Tag", the Return Pipe cannot be used. It also cannot be used during a boss fight. The Return Pipe also can lead to the Flopside Tower if used at Castle Bleck.
