- "With me at your side, one may grasp objects with great vigor! Simply press to use my throwing ability!"
- ― Thoreau, Yold Desert
Thoreau is a Pixl. His appearance resembles a hand, which he is used to grab objects.
Thoreau can first be found in Chapter 1-2 of the Yold Desert, where he is found in a secret room in the Yold Town. Thoreau claims that he was made by the ancients and that he was locked in the treasure chest over 1500 years ago. He does not recognize Tippi when they first meet. After he is obtained the mayor, Old Man Watchitt will let Mario pass to the Yold Desert. Thoreau is vital for defeating Buzzy Beetles, Bald Clefts, and Fracktail.
Thoreau's grab ability can be used at any time by pressing the on the Wii Remote. Doing so will allow Mario to grab enemies and hold them until he wants to throw them.
- Super Paper Mario instruction booklet, page 10. “Use to grab objects and enemies and press again to throw them. Just remember, you can’t pick up spiky enemies. You can also press to throw Thoreau and activate switches at a distance.”.
