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

To beat the Earth Vellumental boss in Paper Mario The Origami King you will first need to get to grips with the new puzzle ring system presented at the start of the fight. This ring contains tiles on it that will send you in different directions. Your goal is to move the ring as you would in a normal fight, so that the arrows send you to where you need to go. You will need to hit the red and yellow circle at the end of your run in order to attack. Aim to land on this tile on the innermost circle and then follow these steps to beat the Earth Vellumental:

  1. Attack the Earth Vellumental's legs first
  2. This will cause it to spin around and attack, you can then hit its tail.
  3. Now the boss will be in its shell and you will need to arrange the rings so that you land on the 1000-fold arms tile, making sure you hit the ON switch on your way.
  4. Once you've activated this you can use the arms to flip the boss and do huge damage.
