Mt. Lavalava is a location the game Paper Mario. It is an active volcano that is located deep within Jade Jungle on Lavalava Island. Mario visits it during Chapter 5 and the Ultra Hammer is can be found here.


After enlisting the help of Raphael the Raven, Mario, his partners, and Kolorado head into Mt. Lavalava to find the next Star Spirit. Throughout the journey through the active volcano, Mario and his friends fight many enemies while Kolorado keeps injuring himself in some way while trying to find the hidden treasure. Eventually, Mario reaches deeper into Mt. Lavalava and finds himself fighting the terrible Lava Piranha. After a long battle, Mario and his friends (with even Kolorado assisting in a minor way) defeat the Lava Piranha and free the Star Spirit Misstar. However, before the celebrations could occur, the Mt. Lavalava suddenly starts to erupt. Misstar quickly urges Mario and the rest to head up higher to avoid the lava. Eventually, they reach a room where Kolorado is out of reach of the treasure he has been looking for. However, Misstar grabs both Mario and Kolorado and quickly get out of the volcano.






  • Mt. Lavalava is the first volcano to appear in the Paper Mario games. The second will be Rumble Volcano in Paper Mario: Sticker Star.
  • If one listens closely (e.g. with headphones) to the background music (formerly named Hot Times in Mt. Lavalava), there are occasional, almost simian, moans and cries. This could mean that there are more forms of life in the Mt. besides Piranha Plants (possibly Spear Guys, hence being fought in Jade Jungle, on Mt. Lavalava).
