Where is Mushroom Island? You can find it in the bottom right corner of quadrant E4. You’re free to come here early but it’s best to visit after completing Crescent Moon Island.
A giant ice block covers the green Toad House at the center of the island. Free the blue fish Toad on the right, the whack the tree on the left to reveal a red magic circle. Activate your Fire Vellumental powers and melt down the gigantic chunk of ice.
Head inside and… it’s empty. Nobody is home, it seems. The door in the back is missing a door handle. If you completed Crescent Moon Island, you should have picked up the Mushroom Handle that you can use to open the door.
Now in the backyard, speak to Luigi and he’ll hand you the Diamond Key. You’ll need this for another island! The Toad Statue doesn’t do anything but say something super vague, but you can save a Toad by whacking the blue flopping fish on the left side. He’ll mark an X in quadrant D6 on your map.
From the backyard, walk to the right and go down the stairs below the roofed area. Enter the next door to discover a bunker filled with origami. A traitor! Well, not really. Turns out this is Olivia’s home! It’s also where she was crafted by Olly himself. After hearing a voice, walk over to the bookshelf on the left and interact with it. Luigi will humbly offer himself up as a spring, so whack him and jump on him to reach the book at the top of the shelf.
Read the book to find out about the Fold of Life, a technique that lets you bring your origami creations to life. The book will also reveal a magic circle. Use it to save the Origami Craftsman from within the walls. He’ll tell you about the creation of Olly and his intention to bring the Origami Castle to the Origami Festival. As you leave, the Origami Craftsman will give some notes to Olivia. And they don’t share with Mario. The nerve!
With everything on Mushroom Island complete, return to The Great Sea. If you’re following our guide order, head to Diamond Island next.
