So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?
Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: missing text error message?
Careful, you'll lose an eye.
This page or section needs more images.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.
Specifically: rip the graphics/animations
Hmmm...
To do:

Paper Mario: The Origami King is the sixth installment of the Paper Mario series, which follows Mario on his quest to stop his world from being folded into origami by the titular villain. Although not considered perfect, it's still seen as a huge upgrade from the last two games by most fans, and is a bit of a return to form for the series, despite some questionable things said by the developers right before launch.

Origami Peach

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: is the animation actually broken? test it out in-game

Origami Peach's model (character/origami/O_PCH.bfres.zst) has unused geometry for a rope around her waist, lots of unused animations for different actions and a "origami transformation" modelS (O_PCH_Transform.bfres.zst, P_PCH_Transform.bfres.zst, P_PCH_Transform.Default.bntx.zst), with an associated, seemingly broken, animation. These all suggest she once had a more extensive role in the game.

Color Splash Leftovers

Mario

PMTOK-ColorSplashHammerSprites.png

Mario has graphics (character/pera/P_MAR_E.Default.bntx.zst) depicting him holding a hammer, which go unused because the hammer obtained in-game is never a sprite and is, in fact, a 3D model.

Enemies

Species that appear as enemies in Paper Mario: Color Splash have many (if not all) of their attacking, taking damage etc graphics and animations, left unused.

2D Thwomp

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: can this be seen if you force the camera to rotate around?

PMTOK-2D Thwomp-back.png

The 2D Thwomp (P_DSN.Default.bntx.zst) has corresponding back graphics for each front graphic, although they are all identical.

Obscured Graphics

PMTOK-Toad-Telescope.png

The graphic used for the Toad's face as seen through the right-hand telescope on Outlook Tower has detail for the head and body too, but this is obscured by the telescope border.

Unused Music

Early Red Streamer Area Battle

Two early, unused versions of Red Streamer Area Battle (Thinking) exist.

BGM_BTL_Normal_Puzzule_opus

BGM_BTL_Normal_Puzzule_W1_opus

Note that the word "puzzle" is misspelled in both files.

Reflection Textures

Like in Color Splash, there are lots of interesting reflection textures.
