The Spring of Purification is a location in Paper Mario: The Origami King. It is one of five hot springs offered in Shangri-Spa. It is arguably the easiest to find and use, although it must be visited at least twice. It is found in the entrance building, to the left of the main hall. This spring is supposedly effective against rips and tears. There is a Shangri-Spa Toad next to a stamp booth. If Mario walks past after using the spring, the Toad reminds him to stamp for the Stamp Card. There is a Koopa Troopa near the spring, on his break.
The first time the spring is used, Mario simply needs to walk into it. As a bonus, all of his HP is quickly restored. Olivia is shocked Mario went in so quickly and wonders what would happen if she went in. Eventually, she decides to slowly drop in. After a while, she is finally able to relax. Mario is now able to use the stamping station nearby to get his first stamp.
After Bowser Jr. and his Junior Clown Car are cut into pieces by Scissors, Mario, Olivia, and Kamek rush the dismembered pieces of Bowser Jr. to the Spring of Purification, only to find three origami Chargin' Chucks occupying the hot spring, refusing to get out. After Mario defeats the Chargin' Chucks, Kamek places the pieces of Bowser Jr. into the hot spring. The pieces sink into the hot spring, and Bowser Jr. resurfaces, pieced back together, but he is still crisped and grimy, requiring the group to use the other hot springs around the resort. This spring does not need to be visited again, although doing so will restore all of Mario's HP once more.
