Paper Macho Soldiers are enemies in Paper Mario: The Origami King. They are giant versions of the Folded Soldiers, except they are fought in the overworld and made of paper mâché with metal skeleton frames instead of origami.
Paper Macho Soldiers are creations of King Olly. They are the ones responsible for the Not-Bottomless Holes covering the Mushroom Kingdom, having eaten chunks of the paper world. Mario can repair the holes by covering them with confetti. Multiple different types can be found around the Mushroom Kingdom, all having vandalized numerous locations.
Unlike Folded Soldiers, Paper Macho Soldiers are fought in the overworld. In battle, they attack by rushing at Mario. To defeat them, Mario must hammer a weak spot marked with a King Olly seal. Once all seals are gone, a white surrender flag displays from them, and their bodies are now exposed. Hitting them a few more times destroys them and they burst into confetti.
After Olivia wishes to undo all of her brother's actions, the Paper Macho Soldiers disappear.
