Paper Mario: Sticker Star is an example of an installment that's okay on its own merits, but is considered awful in comparison to its predecessors and its successor.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Unused script files
  • Regional differences
  • Unused areas (or area models at least) for Decalburg and Surfshine Harbour (at least)

Unused Text

World 3

US Europe
Kersti
Wait! Hang on, Mario. First, we need to
find Wiggler's segment.
Let's grab the comet piece afterward.

Kersti
Wait! Hold on, Mario. First, we need to
find Wiggler's segment.
We'll get the comet piece after that.

Kersti would have spoken this line if you used a Tree Stump Scrap in Wiggler's Tree House before finding one of Wiggler's segments. One of the only two times this would occur is Loop Loop River. However, this is impossible, as the Tree Stump Scrap from Loop Loop River cannot be collected without battling the Wiggler segment first, leading to it joining your party.

A glitch seen in the above video can be exploited to collect the Scrap and exit the level without running into Wiggler's segment. After placing the Scrap, approach the Comet Piece and Kersti will pop out and speak these two lines.

Enemies

2-Fold Shiny Goomba
4-Fold Goomba
4-Fold Shiny Goomba
Shiny Spiny
Deep Cheep
Monty Mole
Inky Piranha Plant
Ptooie
Bullet Bill
Bill Blaster
Banzai Bill
Banzai Blaster
Crowber
Shiny Dry Bones

Several unused enemies. Only the Ptooie has graphics. It's worth noting that some of these enemies (namely, the 2-Fold and 4-Fold Goombas, as well as the Shiny Dry Bones) are mentioned in the game's Prima Strategy Guide, meaning that they may have been removed later in development. Shiny Dry Bones would later appear in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam.

Unused Graphics

Hmmm...
To do:
More dummy/test graphics, Lakitu hurt frames might not be unused

Enemies

Fishbone Sticker Star.PNG

Fish Bones, a recurring enemy in the Mario series, appear as obstacles in World 5-2: Jungle Rapids, leaping in the water and attempting to destroy the raft Mario uses to cross the river, and can be removed using the hammer. They are never battled in turn-based combat. However, they were likely originally meant to be fought in battle at some point, as they have sprites for being affected by the game's various status effects.


Lakitu Sticker Star.PNG

One Lakitu appears in World 1-4: Whammino Mountain, throwing Spinies at Mario. However, it flies too high up to be attacked.

Fishing Rod.PNG

Interestingly, a sprite of what appears to be a fishing rod is stored with the Lakitu graphics, implying that the Fishin' Lakitu seen in several Mario games would have made an appearance here.


Pokey Sticker Star.PNG

A spiked green Pokey. Green, Super Mario Bros. 2-style Pokeys appear alongside their normal counterparts, but this version, which seems to be a combination of the two designs, does not.


Ptooie Sticker Star.PNG

A Ptooie from Super Mario Bros. 3. While normal Piranha Plants appear in Sticker Star, Ptooies do not. Ptooies did make an appearance in the sequel, Paper Mario: Color Splash.

Stickers

Big Leaf Sticker.PNG

A bigger version of the Leaf sticker.

Piranha Plant Sticker.PNG

A Piranha Plant sticker. Probably would have damaged enemies, like the Shell and Bomb stickers.

Rock Sticker.PNG

A rock sticker. Probably would have acted like the Pebble from Paper Mario.

Spiny Egg Sticker.PNG

A Spiny Egg sticker. Probably would have acted like the Spike Ball sticker, and likely would have been dropped by Lakitu.

Tanooki Leaf Sticker.PNG

A Super Leaf sticker. Probably replaced by the Tail sticker.

PMSS-inter mission dummy.png

A crudely-drawn placeholder graphic present in the World 2 intermission BCREZ.

Scraps

Pipe Scrap.png

A scrap of a pipe that's seemingly underground. Has a duplicate in the game's files.

Dead Tree Scrap.png

A scrap of a dead tree, similar to the ones on Whammino Mountain. Also has a duplicate.

Toad Scrap.png

A...rather strange scrap of a Toad with what seems to be a Boo covering its body. Presumably, this was meant for the Enigmansion. Has a duplicate as well.

Sky Scrap.png

A rather generic scrap of a piece of sky.

Bridge Scrap.png

A scrap referred to as a bridge internally, despite clearly being a fence. It's also used as a placeholder texture for various Paperization effect models.

Grass Scrap.png

A scrap that seems to be grass surrounded by water.

Bridge Scrap 2.png

A scrap simply referred to as item01 internally, despite resembling a bridge much more than the scrap that's actually called a bridge.

Flower Scrap.png Flower Scrap 2.png Flower Scrap 3.png

Just a group of flower-based scraps (despite the second looking more like a weed than a flower).

Miscellaneous

PaperMarioStickerStar-UnusedScreenshotGraphic.png

An early screenshot exists as a placeholder for the screenshots taken on-the-go for attacks that use particle effects like the Scissors. It features what is presumably a test battle, involving a Goomba, Koopa Paratroopa, Paragoomba, a cut snake-like enemy and Kamek (or maybe just a normal Magickoopa, like in previous games). Similar game versions to this are depicted in prerelease materials.

Unused Falling Behaviour

If Mario falls off a level, he will flap his arms and a sound effect will play (like in cutscenes where he falls), resulting in a Game Over. This isn't actually possible without clipping out of the stage with a glitch, or by hacking. However, Mario "falling outside a stage" is mentioned in at least the European digital manual.
