To complete the game at 100%, you need to complete the Origami Character Gallery, along with all the other galleries in the Museum. In the Origami Character Gallery, you can view all the Folded Soldiers and other origami characters that you've defeated in the world of Paper Mario: The Origami King. The Shoe Goomba is no ordinary Goomba, so you need to make sure you defeat it at Breezy Tunnel.

100% Completion Guide

Some Folded Soldiers Repeat Per Streamer Category

The gallery is categorized by Streamer. Defeat at least one of each Folded Soldier per Streamer, to complete each category. If you've defeated a Goomba within the Red Streamer, defeating it within the Blue Streamer is still required to populate the Blue Streamer category. Completing the Origami Character Gallery will also earn you a trophy. If you are aiming to complete the game 100%, let's go and find the Shoe Goomba!
