In this Paper Mario: The Origami King guide, we’ll help you find every collectible, hidden block, and repairable hole throughout Earth Vellumental Temple.
Earth Vellumental Temple collectibles locations
There are 7 Toads, 11 Not-Bottomless Holes, 3 Collectible Treasures, and 12 ? Blocks in Earth Vellumental Temple.
After you head up to Overlook Mountain to retrieve the four Shell Stones, you can return to Picnic Road and enter the Earth Vellumental Temple.
? Block 1 of 12
Stand a little to the left of the first donation box inside the temple and jump to reveal a hidden ? Block.
Toad 1 of 7
Make your donation at the second donation box inside the temple. This Toad is an origami beetle that will run around after the show.
Toad 2 of 7
The next Toad is stuck inside the third donation box.
Toad 3 of 7
Just past the next donation box is a string of lights. Jump up and hit the second to last with your head to knock loose this Toad.
Toads 4 through 6 of 7
At the bottom of the stairs from the lights, smash the large rock with your hammer. Three origami beetle Toads will scurry out. Two stay close, but the third runs most of the way back to the second donation box.
? Block 2 of 12
When you knock down the fake wall inside the temple, stay near the top of the path. Stand between the first torch and the statue in the alcove, and jump to reveal another hidden ? Block.
Not-Bottomless Hole 1 of 11
Shortly after you knock down the wall and enter the temple proper, you’ll come to a Save Block. Just past that, the first Not-Bottomless Hole is on one of the moving pillars. You’ll need to repair it to continue.
Collectible Treasure 1 of 3 – No. 25: Earth Vellumental Relief
In the next room, you’ll run into three Koopa Folded Soldiers. Once they’re handled, head down and to the left. There’s a hidden path here that leads to Collectible Treasure No.
? Blocks 3 and 4 of 12
Back up where you fought those Koopas, the first ? Block is just a little to the right, and the second is just past it (off to the right of the screenshot above).
? Block 5 of 12
On the other side of those sliding beams and those two ? Blocks, you’ll be standing on a turtle-shaped pillar. Head down and to the right onto one of the legs. There’s a conspicuous square there. Stand in it and jump to reveal this ? Block.
Not-Bottomless Holes 2 and 3 of 11, ? Block 6 of 12, and Toad 7 of 7
After that pair of ? Blocks above, you’ll see the next two Not-Bottomless Holes on pillars that lead to the next ? Block. If you look at the stone wall on the left, you’ll see the final Toad through the cracks. Ride the pillar down to reach him.
? Block 7 of 12
Backtrack a little and ride the first pillar up so you can jump across to the door. In the next room, this ? Block is past the first pusher block.
Not-Bottomless Hole 4 of 11
From that ? Block, drop off the ledge — or let one of the pistons push you — toward the bottom of the screen. There’s a large Not-Bottomless Hole off to the right.
Collectible Treasure 2 of 3 – No. 26: Rocks
Continue right from that hole to the far end to find Collectible Treasure No. 26: Rocks.
? Block 8 of 12
Start heading back to the left. Just before the first torch you come to, look for a crack in the floor. Stand in the center of the path just to the right of that crack and jump to reveal this ? Block.
Not-Bottomless Hole 5 of 11
Backtrack all the way to the left on that lower level. This Not-Bottomless Hole is on a pillar that will return you to the top level.
? Block 9 of 12
As you make your way to the right past those pistons, stop when you get back to ? Block 8. Step (don’t jump) off of the ledge to land on top of the block, and jump to reveal another ? Block.
Not-Bottomless Hole 6 of 11
Continue past all of the pusher pistons to the far right end. This Not-Bottomless Hole is on the wall.
Not-Bottomless Hole 7 of 11 and ? Block 10 of 12
Use the second to the last piston to sneak behind the wall and head up to the next Save Block. Just to the right, you’ll find this Not-Bottomless Hole and ? Block.
Not-Bottomless Holes 8 and 9 of 11
After the first set of spinning fire traps, you’ll head up a ramp to another (larger) set. These two, small Not-Bottomless Holes are just before them.
Not-Bottomless Hole 10 of 11
And just after that pair of fire traps, there’s another Not-Bottomless Hole before the next.
Not-Bottomless Hole 11 of 11
The final spinning fire trap will become a boulder that chases you down the path. Let it roll over you, and then continue left. You’ll pass by the final Not-Bottomless Hole on the wall.
? Blocks 11 and 12 of 12 and Collectible Treasure 3 of 3 – No. 27: Pipe
Pass the main door into the heart of the temple — the one that looks like a big mouth — and continue to the right. There are two hidden ? Blocks here. The first is a couple steps to the left of the torch in the middle of the path. The second is at the top of the path, right in front of the turtle statue in the wall. The second hidden block contains Collectible Treasure No. 27: Pipe.
