The unique combat brought to us by Paper Mario: The Origami King's battle ring system can make it difficult to defeat some of those powerful bosses or even the regular enemies. If you don't figure where to shift enemies to or can't find the best path for Mario to travel with the ring puzzle, things can go south pretty quickly. Fortunately, if Mario's holding a 1-Up Mushroom and falls in battle, he'll immediately get revived with full health.

But where do you get this handy item? Here's everything you need to know about 1-Up Mushrooms including where to get them in Paper Mario: The Origami King.

The Battle Lab is the Mushroom-shaped building with two hammers located just to the left of the museum.
