Spade Island is one of 11 accessible islands in the Great Sea in Paper Mario: The Origami King. It is found in the northern part of the sea, charted in territory D-1 on the Sea Chart with a spade icon. This is one of the four suit islands to be found, along with Club Island, Diamond Island, and Heart Island. While there are no Collectible Treasures to be found on the island, there are five Toads to be rescued, only one Not-Bottomless Hole to repair, and two hidden ? Blocks to be revealed and struck.
Upon arriving at the island, Captain T. Ode notes its shape and names it accordingly. Once Mario and Olivia get off the boat and onto the dock, they discover a red Toad stuck in a large barrel in the center of the island. He asks Mario to find his friends, who are hidden in different places around the island. After Mario finds four other Toads, who insert themselves into the barrel, he must push each Toad into the barrel to break it open and free the red Toad. He thanks Mario for saving him and marks a spot on the Sea Chart where a treasure is to be found, which is actually located shortly southwest of this island. The red Toad then realizes his vest is missing, prompting his friends to cover him up in the meantime.
There is a stone Toad statue on the northern tip of the island. Mario can examine the statue to see a diagram indicating that this island forms a baseball diamond layout with three other islands, Spade Island corresponding to the second base.
After they return to The Princess Peach, these Toads are seen at the ship's bow; the red naked Toad is "causing a scene" while his four friends share a table by themselves. They are also depicted in Collectible Treasure No. 83: Spade Island Barrel, which is found by diving at a spot marked by the red Toad.
