|"Sometimes dropped by Sombrero Guys. Provides a throwable hat that can hit a single foe."|
|First appearance||Paper Mario: Sticker Star (2012)|
- “A sombrero worn by Sombrero Guys. The angle of the throw affects how cool the attack turns out!”
- —Sticker Museum plaque, Paper Mario: Sticker Star
The Sombrero is a sticker found in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. It can only be found by defeating Sombrero Guys, as it occasionally drops after defeating one. It appears as the sombrero worn by the Sombrero Guy against a light-green background, similar to other stickers exclusively dropped by enemies. It takes up one square in Mario's Album.
The Sombrero attacks a single enemy, and can target either grounded or flying enemies. When used, Mario will hold the Sombrero in his hand, readying himself to throw it. This begins a short charge, similar to Hammer-based stickers. If the player presses immediately after beginning the charge, or does not press at all, no rating will display for the attack, but it will still connect, dealing 12 points of damage to an enemy with 0 defense. However, if the player presses right before the charge ends, an "Excellent!" rating will display, and the Sombrero will deal 15 points of damage to the enemy instead of 12.
This sticker sells for 15 coins at a shop. In the Sticker Museum, it is listed as No. 95, with three stars of attack power. While the Sticker Museum description mentions "the angle of the throw" as a factor in the attack, this is misleading. Mario remains in the same pose during the entire charge, and the animation does not change if the player succeeds or fails to achieve the attack's correct timing. In the original Japanese translation, the "angle" line is missing, instead roughly translating to "It seems that Sombrero Guy throwing a hat is intended as fan service."
