By performing a specific glitch allowing Mario to enter doors in Paper Mode in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, it is possible to enter the final boss battle cutscene with Paper Mode active. Mario will remain turned sideways for the remainder of the game as well as exhibit irregular behavior, such as walking away from Peach as she is lying on the floor after the battle.


While female Toads have been commonplace in Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, they have disappeared from the series entirely starting with Super Paper Mario, with the only hint that they could still exist being this quip from an angry Toad during a one-time event in Paper Mario: Color Splash. (Note that this isn’t conclusive evidence, as his wife could be something other than a Toad.)
