Runaway Pay as it appears in Paper Mario
|First Game||Paper Mario (2001)|
|Effect||Gives Mario Star Points|
|Found||Dry Dry Desert|
Runaway Pay is a badge in Paper Mario. This badge has a BP cost of 2. Mario, so long as this badge is equipped, will still get the Star Points he would get if he defeated enemies in a battle if he runs away. He, however, only gets the points that are in the bottom right corner, and not those from enemies he has not defeated in the battle. Runaway pay does not tamper with the runaway meter.
This badge is found in Dry Dry Desert. In the desert, two sectors northwest of Dry Dry Outpost, are three trees in a triangular formation. An invisible Question Block containing this badge is in the middle of these trees.
