Redpepper Volcano – Paper Mario: Color Splash Walkthrough

Redpepper Volcano is the twenty-seventh level of Chapter 6 in Paper Mario: Color Splash. Keep reading for tips and secrets on how to complete the level, along with other cool tidbits in our Walkthrough!

Mini Star #1

Before you head into this level, make sure you have the following items: Basin Thing, Magma Burger, Fishing Rod (all three are in Fort Cobalt), and the Bottle Opener (in The Golden Coliseum).

Enter the level and walk all the way to the right, past the Blue Snifit, across the lava, and into the hole. There you’ll meet the Draggadon you colored in with the orange Big Paint Star. He isn’t too happy to see you, so make a mad dash to the left as he chases you across the lava.

Once you reach the starting pathway, hide in the area where the Blue Snifit was to avoid his extremely damaging fire breath. Once that has passed, run up to Draggadon and enter Cutout mode to place the Basin over his head. Slightly knocked out, hop onto his head and whip out your Fishing Rod and Magma Burger to get him to take you wherever you like. Head over to the door in the back.

The next area is full of enemies, but it’s a fairly simple section. Going on the bridges will have Lava Bubbles bounce your way, so make sure you are always moving when crossing. If you go into the first door, you’ll enter a room with the Mini Star, but there is nothing you can do since the other end of the warp pipe needs to be colored in. Return to the normal room and head through the door on the right.

Now you’ll be doing some side-stepping. Time your jumps to avoid hitting the Spiny enemies and of course, the lavafalls. Keep moving to the right, then drop down where you see the line of coins. Continue on to the right, avoiding the rising lava. Head through the next door.

Jump across the platforms in the lava but don’t stop moving. Doing so will surely get you in the crosshairs of the Fire Bros. Once you reach the other side, color in the lava spot, starting from the further end to the area closest to normal ground, the hop onto the Draggadon.

Use him to crush your enemies and the platforms! You’ll have to make a stop over on the right so that you can walk over and fill in some more colorless lava. Since there are a lot of Lava Bubbles in this area, a good strategy is to move in a zig zag formation to avoid any battles. Once that is clear, hop back onto the Draggadon and use it to reach the area near the next door.

You’ve made it to the final room! Color in the warp pipe, then enter Cutout mode to put the Bottle Opener over the suspiciously looking bottle like formation to release a ton of lava into the area. Ride the Draggadon over to the right to rescue the Red Toad Rescue Squad member, then head over to the Mini Star to unlock Redpepper Crater!

 

Mini Star #2

After getting another Magma Burger from Fort Cobalt, return to Redpper Volcano and hop onto the Draggadon. Use him to make your way to the south side of the first area to find a little area with the Mini Star. This will create a path to Plum Park!

Make sure you have a Bottle Opener and Basin, as well as the Fishing Pole and Magma Burger (bought in Fort Cobalt). Go to Marmalade Valley. Talk to a Toad about the Draggadon fossil, and they’ll advise you to speak to the professor. Go to Chateau Chanterelle. Talk to the professor, and he’ll advise you to go to Redpepper Volcano. Go to Redpepper Volcano. Walk all the way to the right and into the next area. Draggadon will appear. As it starts to attack, run to the left and watch out for falling rocks. Once you’re away from the lava,… Read more »

If you go back at any point after using the basin (I did), the thing toad will say that you need “something that can be mistaken by a weapon but is instead used to open delicious beverages.” So he does say you need the bottle opener (weapon?), but only after you use the basin with the dragon.
