First appearance Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

Tube Mode is one of Mario's transformations seen in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and the third one obtained. Like all of his other origami-themed forms, it is granted to him in the form of a "curse" from one of the Black Chest Demons in Twilight Town.

Tube Mode allows Mario to twist his body into a wheel, allowing him to roll across the ground. It can be activated by holding R Button and rotating the control stick, with Mario returning to normal once B Button is pressed. While in Tube Mode, Mario moves much faster and turns smoother, and cannot use his hammer, Spin Jump, Spring Jump, or use partner abilities.

Like all other "cursed" forms in the game, there is a minigame in the Pianta Parlor that utilizes this move.
