Tech Cursyas are Cursyas that appear in Super Paper Mario. They curse the characters with the No Skills status ailment, causing each hero to temporarily lose their specific ability: Mario cannot flip, Peach cannot use her parasol to glide and deflect enemy attacks, Bowser cannot use his Fire Breath, and Luigi cannot use his super jump. Tech Cursyas can be distinguished from other Cursyas by their purple coloration.

Piccolo can remove the status ailment.
