Mystery Images

By: Tucayo (talk)

HI, comrades! I don't know where that came from, just pretend it never happened. I'm your cooktastic Co-director, Tucayo, and welcome to a special edition of Mystery Images! What's so special, you may ask. Well, this month we won't have character in the images, instead we have some recipe items from the Paper Mario series. I show you the image, you give me the name; simple enough. Bonus points if you know the games from which the depicted items are.

Hiding Koopa

By: General bob-omb (talk)
Luigi just can't get away from those ghosts, can he? But it looks like he's come prepared this time with the Poltergust 3000, wait... I mean 3001, err... 4000. Whatever it is, it can sure suck up those boos. I just hope that koopa doesn't get in the way.
