How to Beat the Water Vellumental Boss Fight in Paper Mario The Origami King

To beat the Water Vellumental boss in Paper Mario The Origami King you will need to use boot attacks while it's in the air. This will knock it down onto the ground where you can use the hammer. Keep doing this until Olivia warns you about the boss's belly getting full, then follow these steps:

  1. Once the boss's belly is full you will need to hit the ON switch and land on the green Magic Circle.
  2. This will activate the Earth Vellumental power and raise you up on a mound of dirt.
  3. This will protect you from the Mega Wave attack.
  4. After this attack you want to hit the ON switch again and land on the 1000-fold arms to punish the boss.

How to Dodge the Wash Away Attacks

The Water Vellumental will place tornados onto the board at the start of each round. Once the ring is set, they will move and wash away all tiles on each row in front of a tornado. Keep this in mind when planning your route, basically anything in line with a tornado won't be usable.
