Stampede is an attack in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door that can be used by Yoshi as he reaches Ultra Rank. For the cost of 6 FP, Yoshi will call a massive herd of fellow Yoshis who will stampede over all enemies on screen (despite the description stating that it only hits grounded targets). The move's Action Command involves pressing L Button and R Button in alternation repeatedly. This will fill a gauge, and incidentally indicate how many hits the attack will do, doing up to six hits at perfect execution. Similarly to Power Bounce, attack buffs will only directly boost the first hit's attack power, and consecutive hits will rather do one damage less than the last, down to 1 damage.

Furthermore right after performing the action command, as a music note appears near Yoshi, the player can input A Button to perform a stylish move.
