Spring of Bliss
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
The Spring of Bliss is a location in Paper Mario: The Origami King. It is one of five hot springs offered at Shangri-Spa. It can be visited in any order corresponding with the other springs, and is required to fill out the Stamp Card. It is found northeast of the plaza. This spring is supposedly effective against folds and creases.
This spring must be visited to smooth out Bowser Jr.'s folds and creases, restoring all of Mario's HP in the process as a bonus. However, since only hot water is running into the spring initially, touching the water actually takes away some of Mario's HP. Mario must find an opening in a short wall behind the spring and jump through that opening to find a Not-Bottomless Hole on a blue pipe, from which cold water is leaking. After defeating a Hammer Bro who is guarding the hole, Mario must repair the hole to get cold water running back into the spring, balancing out the temperature. Although the spring is able to fix up Bowser Jr. a bit, after a while, Kamek notices Olivia is floating upside down in the water. He takes her out and folds her back to normal. She thanks Kamek, saying she was almost smoothed out completely but is now feeling great. If Mario soaks in the spring again from this point, Olivia will wait outside the spring.
Near the spring, there is a stamp booth with a Shangri-Spa Toad. Notably, Mario can hammer behind this booth to find a pair of Legendary Boots. There is a Goomba next to the spring arranging water buckets, and a Shy Guy cleaning a folding chair. There is a ladder on the right side of the spring allowing Mario to get onto the roof, where he can find a Koopa Troopa with freshly polished 100-Coins.
