Threatening Note
Icon of an item from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (Nintendo Switch)
The Thousand-Year Door (Nintendo Switch) description The threatening note found in Mario's cabin on the Excess Express. It reads: "Don't go to Poshley Heights! Get off the train now, or a sticky, yummy doom awaits it!"
“Mm... What a strange threat... Do you think that Beldam woman might be behind it?”
Ms. Mowz, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

The Threatening Note is a Useful Item exclusive to the Nintendo Switch remake of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. When Mario and his partners board the Excess Express in Chapter 6, Mario's partner notices the Threatening Note on the floor in their room. After reading it, they wonder if Beldam is the one behind the threat of a "sticky, yummy doom". In the original version of the game, Mario reads the note but it is not a key item.

On the morning of the second day, the Businessman's Briefcase containing the prototype of Nitro Honey Syrup is stolen, along with Toodles' Gold Ring and the waitress' Shell Earrings. The culprit is initially thought to be fellow passenger Zip Toad, who is actually Doopliss in disguise. After being exposed, Doopliss flees the train while it is stopped at Riverside Station. The Threatening Note is discarded from Mario's inventory at this point.
