Candy Canes are special type objects that appear in the Paper Mario series.


Paper Mario

In Paper Mario, Candy Canes are found on Pleasant Path at the intersection (where west leads to Toad Town, south leads to Koopa Village, and east leads to Koopa Bros. Fortress). If Mario walks around a Candy Cane, a special theme will play and the Candy Cane will release restoring hearts making it a useful way to restore HP without having to pay for an Inn.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Candy Canes return in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door where only one is found in Petal Meadows right before Petalburg. Mario can no longer circle around the Candy Cane for recovery hearts but he can hammer it ten times for a Horsetail.
