"'A tape returned by Goompa. Deliver it to Koopa Koot."
First appearance Paper Mario (2000)
“What's that? You want to know what's on The Tape, do you? Oh, no no... I'm sorry... I'm afraid I can't tell you at the moment.”
Goompa, Paper Mario

The Tape is a special item that is found only in Paper Mario. Koopa Koot owns this item and once loaned it to Goompa a long time ago, but now he wants it back. If Mario asks Goompa for the tape, Goompa retrieves it from his house and give it to Mario to return to Koopa Koot. Mario is curious of what is on the tape, but unfortunately Goompa cannot tell Mario exactly what is on it. However, Goompa does mention that the tape's contents were great. This item comparable to the Box in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and the You-Know-What in Super Paper Mario; all are side-quest items that Mario is not allowed to see the contents of.
