This guide shows how to get the sewer hook (Manhole Hook) in Paper Mario: The Origami King, for the NIntendo Switch. Read on to learn where to find the sewer hook (Manhole Hook) in Toad Town and how to return it later in the game.

How to Open the Sewer

The sewer hook (Manhole Hook) is a Useful Item that opens the manhole in the west side of Toad Town. This manhole leads to Graffiti Underground, Toad Town's sewer system, which is your way back into Peach's Castle.

How to Get the Sewer Hook (Manhole Hook)

Go to the northwest corner of Toad Town. You'll find a door with legs sticking out. Pull out a Red Shy Guy, and it will tell you about the sewer entrance to Peach's Castle. Interact with the manhole to hear about another Red Shy Guy that Mario needs to rescue.
2 To the west, you'll see a yard where the other Red Shy Guy is dangling from the mouth of a Paper Macho Goomba. Go inside the house next to that yard. The Paper Macho Goomba will be blocking the back door. To get to the yard, hit the drawers until one of them opens. Jump onto the open drawer, then onto the top of the drawers. Hit the window to open it and jump out.
3 In the yard, defeat the Paper Macho Goomba to rescue the Red Shy Guy, and get a hint about opening the sewer. Exit the yard.

Continue to the red brick building on the far east side of town. Inside, jump on the box in the bottom-right corner and hold A to rescue a Spike. Hit the shelf on the right side of the room with a hammer to shake the boxes. Keep hitting it repeatedly until one of the boxes falls and creates a Magic Circle. Move the 1,000-Fold Arms to the top left corner of the brick wall and pull to the right to reveal a door.

In the next room, stand on the platform to the left of the pushcart and hit it with the Hammer. This will knock the pushcart to the right. Jump onto the pushcart and onto the top shelves, then across to the left to find the Manhole Hook, along with a Mushroom.
If the Goombas in this room are in the way of the pushcart, they'll get automatically defeated when it hits them!
