Whacka Bump is an item found in Paper Mario, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and Super Paper Mario.


Paper Mario

In this game, Whacka Bumps can be obtained by hammering a Whacka found in Mt. Rugged. Eating a Whacka Bump restores 25 HP and 25 FP making it a very effective healing item. However, Mario can only obtain 8 Whacka Bumps in this game. After that, the Whacka disappears for the rest of the game.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

WhackaBump PMTTYD
In this game, Whacka Bumps must now be obtained from a Whacka found on Keelhaul Key which is rather late into the game compared to the previous game. As usual, only 8 Whacka Bumps can be obtained in this game and they restore 25 HP and 25 FP. Whacka Bumps can now be used in some dishes and may be the result of a cooked Mystery if Mario is lucky.

Super Paper Mario

WackasBump SPM
In Super Paper Mario, the Whacka Bump can be purchased at the arcade for 300 Flipside Tokens. A Whacka can be found on Chapter 5-1 (Downtown of Crag) at the far right wall. Mario must use Dottie to shrink and then flip to 3D. The Whacka is found in the hole. If a Whacka Bump is cooked, it creates a Roast Whacka Bump.
