The Stop Watch is a reoccurring item in the series.


Paper Mario series

In Paper Mario, the Stop Watch is a unique item that has the ability to immobilize enemies for a certain amount of turns. However, this doesn't work every time and it may either immobilize all enemies, some of them, or none of them at all. Stop Watches can be purchased at the Item Shop at Star Haven for 15 coins.
