All MAX UP Heart Locations in Paper Mario: The Origami King

You'll need a lot of heart to survive this journey!

He'll acquire all sorts of tools to help him complete this heroic deed, such as a variety of hammers and boots. However, one major obstacle stands in Mario's way—his mortality. To remedy this, there are a generous number of MAX UP Hearts hidden around the kingdom, though you'll have to find them first. Here are all MAX UP Heart locations in Paper Mario: The Origami King.

Where to find all MAX UP Hearts

There are three types of MAX UP Hearts scattered throughout the land—+20, +10, and +5 Hearts, which will increase Mario's health by twenty, ten, and five points, respectively. A total of 14 Hearts can be found, and their locations are as follows:

+20 Hearts

  • Earth Vellumental Temple
    • Upon reaching the giant rolling stone, allow it to safely pass over you by aligning yourself with one of the indents within the stone. The stone will fall into the gap at the end of the pathway, creating a bridge for you to reach this Heart.
  • Shogun Studios
    • Give Princess the bone found near a pair of Dry Bones to obtain this Heart from the area's Chain Chomp.
  • The Princess Peach
    • Head to the top-deck of the ship and open the chest found to the left of the smokestack to obtain this Heart.
  • Heart Island
    • Use Mario's hammer on the bushes found here to reveal buttons, then hit the left and right buttons to make a folded Toad appear. From there, hit the button in front of the Toad Statute to reveal a bridge leading to the folded Toad, then whack him to obtain this Heart.

+10 Hearts

  • Shroom City
    • While inside of Shroom City's hotel, turn off the fountain for the hotel pool. From there, talk to the Snifit that appears to be standing on some pizza to reveal a Toad and obtain this Heart.
  • Temple of Shrooms
    • While in the Temple of Shrooms, use the faceless Toads to open the coffin with the heart emblem to obtain this Heart. Alternatively, returning to this room after clearing the temple will result in all of the coffins automatically opening.
  • Shangri-Spa
    • Walk to the right side of the plaza and hit the blue umbrella to release a green Snifit. This Heart can be purchased from the Snifit for 10,000 coins.
  • Spring of Rainbows
    • While inside of the spring, keep an eye out for a breakable stalagmite positioned above a geyser on the ground. Break the stalagmite to plug the geyser, causing the nearby platform to rise higher than previously possible. Ride the platform up to a breakable wall, then follow the newly exposed path to find two more stalagmites. Break these to plug up more geysers, allowing the platform to rise high enough for you to obtain this Heart.

  • Scorched Sandpaper Desert
    • Make your way to the southwestern section of the desert and dig within the center of a ring of rocks to find a Shriveled Heart. From there, toss it into the lake found in Whispering Woods to restore it to normal and obtain this Heart.
  • The Great Sea
    • Sail down the southeastern section of The Great Sea and position your boat in the center of the star icon on the map, then dive down to find a Canned Heart. From there, return to the Friendship Plaza on Autumn Mountain to have Bone Goomba open the can and obtain this Heart.
  • Ice Vellumental Mountain
    • Upon defeating the first Sledge Bro found here, use the magic circle to drop down to a newly exposed path. From there, head back toward the entrance of the room and jump across the icicle on the left side of the room to obtain this Heart.
