The Vellumentals are a group of elemental, deity-like creatures that reside in their own Vellumental shrines and temples, acting as bosses in Paper Mario: The Origami King. Their shared name is a portmanteau on "elemental", and "vellum", a type of parchment specifically made of calfskin (alluding to the ancient nature of the Vellumentals). Certain in-game text suggests that they were not always made of origami.
When each Vellumental is defeated, it unveils a Bibliofold that contains instructions on how to fold into them. This allows Olivia to transform into one via a corresponding Magic Circle, allowing Mario to access its elemental powers. Each Vellumental will also become available for a timed refight using a Bossotronic Fighter in Toad Town's Battle Lab.
During certain Wave Battles, an enemy may hold a random Vellumental Magic Circle, which if defeated will allow Olivia to transform into that Vellumental and attack all enemies with 50 damage in the next turn, or the next wave if all enemies in the current wave are defeated. However, the Magic Circle disappears from the enemy if Mario fails to solve the ring puzzle. King Olly also possesses the ability to turn into each of the Vellumentals in the first stage of his boss fight.
In their original origami forms, the Vellumentals have no eyes. When Olivia transforms into a Vellumental, it gains eyes and a two-pointed crown on its head. When King Olly becomes a Vellumental, alongside eyes, a three-pointed crown, and a large flap of hair like Olly's, the majority of their skin turns purple.
