Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is an RPG made by Nintendo and is the second game in the Paper Mario series following Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64. It incorporates a world made of paper and turn-based battles, much like its predecessor. In it, Peach asks Mario to help find a treasure hidden in Rogueport. When he arrives, she is missing as usual, and he must collect 7 Crystal Stars and open the Thousand-Year Door to save her and collect the treasure.

This latest TAS by Malleoz features a never-before-seen strategy for Teleporter Room Early, as well as a couple more glitches exclusive to the US version of the game. This necessitated the change from the Japanese version used in the previous run. In the end, nearly fourteen minutes were saved.

Author's vocal commentary during the run's video can be watched on YouTube with a detailed overlay or on Twitch.
