This guide shows how to find all 40 Faceless Toads in Paper Mario: The Origami King, for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to learn the locations for all Faceless Toads and DJ Toad's lost discs.


Temple of Shrooms Faceless Toads

Faceless Toads.png
Faceless Toads are the poor toads in the Temple of Shrooms who have no face, punched out by Hole Punch, the Disco Devil.

When Hole Punch got angry, it removed the face of all the Toads in the Temple of Shrooms and locked itself inside a room. The only way to get it back to dancing is to play groovy music and find all of the Faceless Toads. He doesn't want a lonely dance floor so we have to find those toads!

Locations of Faceless Toads

How to Find and Rescue the Faceless Toads

Find the Lost Discs of DJ Toad

Play Thrills at Night.png
To rescue the Faceless Toads, you need to locate the lost discs of DJ Toad first. Once found, return to the DJ Toad, and have him play the Thrills at Night disc. The DJ will then give you an Ancient Portable Music Machine.

Use this boombox, and revisit the locations of the Faceless Toads you encountered before. Go near each Toad, and they will follow you automatically. You can start rescuing the Toads inside the DJ room. Then, enter the green Warp Pipe to travel back to the west side of the Triangle Switch Puzzle room.

You can find the Thrills at Night disc inside a secret passage full of sarcophagus. To find the secret passage, hit the flame lamp located on the south-east of the Coffin Puzzle room.

At the end of the secret passage, you will find the disc on the sarcophagus. However, a Black Shy Guy is protecting it. To get the disc, you need to find the 1000-Fold Arms magic circle. Hit the sarcophagus to find the magic circle.
