Once these flat paper folks have been turned into Folded Soldiers, we can't turn them back! It seems cruel to fight them, but if we don't, they'll try to fold you into origami too!
~ Olivia on the Folded Soldiers.
The Folded Soldiers are King Olly's origami minions and the secondary antagonists of Paper Mario: The Origami King.
The Folded Soldiers were once regular members of the Koopa Troop until Olly took over Princess Peach's Castle. Using a Stapler brought to life by his magic, Olly converted Princess Peach and the members of Bowser's army into origami, brainwashing them into following his orders. Throughout Mario's adventure of removing the streamers guarding the entrance to the castle, the Folded Soldiers are sent to stop him. He also created the Paper Macho Soldiers, massive Folded Soldiers made of papier-mâché.
After Mario defeats the Stapler, the staples holding the Folded Soldiers together are destroyed, allowing them to revert back to their paper forms and free them from Olly's control.
