Paper Mario Edit
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Edit
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the item is made in the same way. Mario must give Zess T. a Fire Flower. In this game, the Spicy Soup has been greatly upgraded. Instead of healing Mario slightly, this item gives the same effect as Maple Super, recovering ten points of HP and FP, with a bonus of plus one point to his attack temporarily.
Super Paper Mario Edit
In Super Paper Mario, Mario cannot create this item with a Fire Flower was Fire Flowers are absent from the game. Instead, it is created by way of giving a Fire Burst to Saffron in Flipside. Mario will be given this item which restores eight points of HP.
In addition to being a regular item, Mario must use this item after finding Princess Peach in Flipside some time in the game. Peach falls ill and must be woken up with something zesty, which Mario finds in the Spicy Soup.
