The Thousand-Year Door Description Change Mario's clothes into Wario's clothes.

The W Emblem is a badge in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It can be bought from Charlieton for 360 coins. If Mario equips the badge, it changes the color scheme of his clothes to resemble Wario's, turning his hat and shirt yellow, his overalls purple, and his shoes green. This look somewhat mirrors Mario's yellow costume from the Super Smash Bros. series (excluding Super Smash Bros. Ultimate). It is also the only reference of Wario in a Paper Mario game. If combined with the L Emblem, Mario's clothes will resemble Waluigi's, with his hat and shirt turned purple, his overalls becoming black, and his shoes becoming orange, making it the only reference of Waluigi in a Paper Mario game.
