This is my first walkthrough so do not blame me if it is a bit low quality. Version 2.1 This walkthrough was last updated (3/29/2001) 1. Characters 2. Controls 3. Walkthrough 4. Weapons 5. Badges 6.

Walkthrough: The game starts with Parakarry delivering a letter to Mario and Luigi's house. You are invited to Peach's castle. You automatically head there. All doors except for the double doors and the kitchen are open. There is nothing good in the kitchen so just keep heading through the brown doors. You can talk with the people for some info about them but that is it. When you meet up with Peach, she will talk and then the ground will shake. Watch as the castle floats up into the sky. Bowser and Kammy Koopa break through a window and you fight him, after three damage he uses the Star Rod and powers himself up. Now you cannot hurt him but just keep attacking. You cannot win so Bowser uses his fire breath and you die but do not worry because you come back to life later. Bowser knocks Mario out of the castle and when he passes through the clouds it shows the Paper Mario sign and then the prologue sign. Prologue- Mario lies on the ground when all of a sudden, the seven star spirits appear and heal Mario back to life but not they don't have enough time to heal him fully so he can move again. The stars disappear and Goombaria appears and takes you to a Toad's House. Mario gets a vision of Eldstar who tells Mario that they will tell him something important up at Shooting Star Summit. After this Mario wakes up and goes outside. Enter the house next to the Toad's House and enter the door to the back and talk to Goompa then head to the right of the town and talk to Goompapa and then the gate will be smashed by a yellow block summoned by Kammy. Save at the save block (it is rainbow coloured and has an S on it). Head back to where Goompa was and you will fall down. After talking head left into the playground. Gramps gives you a helpful lesson about the game then you will start looking for the hammer. Search all of the bushes to find the hammer and five coins. Hit three trees to get two coins and a doll of Peach. Do not forget to smash all the blocks in the playground before you leave. Just as you leave the playground Jr. Troopa appears and you fight him. Just keep using the hammer. After you obviously beat him, he will vow revenge. Hit the question block for a coin then smash the tree for a mushroom then finally smash the yellow block. Hit the Life block to fully recover (you should not waste the mushroom here). Pay no attention to the stone block here as it cannot be broken until after the Dry Dry Ruins. Bounce on the spring to collect the coins and the fire flower then head right. Here you will meet up with your first enemy encounters so be careful because you cannot jump on the spiked goombas. When you reach a divider head up then left to get your first star piece then exit the area to the right to return to the village. Give the doll back to Goombaria, wait for Goompa to give you a badge, be happy as Goombario joins your party, heal at Toad's and then smash the block and continue on. Head right defeating the enemies as you pass and checking everything until you reach a life block. When you see the spring you are attacked by the Red & Blue Goomba brothers. If you have saved the fire flower then use it. After that heal and save. Continue heading right and you will battle the Goomba King and the bros. Again. First, hit the Goomnut tree with your Hammer to kill the bros. and damage the king. Just keep using power jump and headbonk and you will be fine. After you beat him, hit the Goomnut tree for a star piece. Listen to their conversation and check the bushes for the switch. Hit it and cross the bridge. Head to the bottom right and smash the block to make another one appear in the air. Hit it to make a Super Shroom appear. Continue heading down and do not forget to get the Sleepy Sheep from the block. Hit the tree to make the spring appear and use the spring to bounce on the roof and open the treasure chest for a badge then enter Toad Town. Head right to the next area and hit the first tree you see for a star piece. Then head up and head up when you reach the divider. Head left to get another star piece then head up the path and talk with Eldstar. After some talk you have the option of saving then it will go to Peach. After the talk, leave the area and as you head back to where the castle used to be you will be bumped by Twink. He gives you the Lucky Star and tutors you on how to do more damage in attacks by timing them. Then you battle one of Kammy's helpers (Even helpers have helpers). Beat her using your new ability then head back to Toad Town. Go to Merlon's house and knock twice as the door will not open. He will tell you what to do then go there and talk to the four dark toads which are oddly coloured the same as the Koopa's bros. Then head back to Merlon. Talk to him when you are in front of him and he will clear the toads out of the way. Save and go the way they were blocking. -End of Prologue Chapter 1- Keep heading right until you reach a tree and hit it to make a switch appear. Hit the switch to make a bridge appear and cross it. Continue heading right until you reach a sign and then head down into Koopa Village. You will hear about their Fuzzy problem from Koover. Get back his shell by hammering the Fuzzy. Help all the other villagers by doing the following: Two follow on the same track so just lie in wait then hammer them, jump up to hit the block, hit the tree, another fuzzy is on a fixed track so wait and hit him, one will keep running so you must sneak up on it by slightly tilting the joystick then hammering him, push the block so it is under the block and smash it, hit the tree to set loose another fixed track Fuzzy. Once this is done, enter the shaking house. Talk to Kooper and follow the Fuzzy. Once you catch up with it, you will have to play a game of "Where's the Fuzzy?". You must use your ability to guess where that Fuzzy is three times each time harder. If you get it wrong, you must battle a Fuzzy or get a coin. After getting Kooper's shell back and giving it to him, you must fight four Fuzzies. Use Kooper's Power Shell and have Mario use anything. After defeating them, go back to the village and do not forget to pick up the HP Plus Badge before you head back. Head into the house to the right to meet Koopa Koot, a man who gives you the Silver and Gold Credit, he will ask for a book which you get from Kolorado's Wife so ask her and return to receive a coin then he'll ask for a Sleepy Sheep so buy one and give it to him then talk to him again to receive the Silver Credit. Go outside and push the box to get the Star Piece. Head left and there may be a worm there so talk to him and answer his quiz (He has 64 quizzes) and get a Star Piece. Save and heal yourself and buy as many POW blocks as possible then head towards Koopa Bros. Fortress. Be careful of the coins, as it is a trap. Do not forget to hit the block so you can hit the block so you can get the Thunder Bolt. Head right then head to the corner and hit the switch using Kooper's shell. Cross the bridge and continue to head right. Smack the tree for a Star Piece and continue on. Heal at the Life Block then save and enter the Fortress. Battle the Koopa and Bob-omb to get a key and enter the locked door. Battle the two Bob-ombs then head outside to heal your FP. Head to the room behind the two Bob-ombs and battle the Koopa to make a switch appear. Hit the switch to make the stairs drop and head down the stairs and head to the left. Battle the two Parakoopas and the Koopa to make the walls return to normal then continue on to get a key. Return to the floor above and insert the key into the lock. Head to the door at the bottom to save then head up and hit the block. You will fall into the dungeon and start to talk with Bombette. Use her to blow up the crack in the wall then heal yourself and prepare for a little battle then heal yourself again after the battle. Head back to where you saved on the floor above the area where you fell and head right and blow up the crack and open the chest there to get the Refund Badge. Head back to where the three jail-like cells were and blow up the two holding the Power Bounce Badge and a key. Head to the door that is close to the area where you fell and enter the door. Use the key on the opposite door then take out Kooper. Walk beyond the first | wall but stay behind the __ wall and use Kooper's ability to flick the switch. Head just in front of the next ___ wall and hit the switch. Repeat this until you are at the other end. Kill the Koopa and hit the switch to lower the stairs. Go down the stairs and blow up the wall to get a key. Head back up the stairs and use the key. Press the switch and head up the stairs. Do not enter the door and get the Smash Charge Badge. Head outside and head right. Jump to avoid the Bullet Bills or you can battle them. AS you head right, forget to head down first chance you get to receive a Maple Syrup. Head up to the cannons but head down to heal and save then battle them. After that, heal and save then head into the door. They will attack with a fake Bowser so use the Thunder Bolt on it and then Bomb it. Repeat until they appear (the Koopa Bros.). Use Bomb to knock them down then use a Maple Syrup followed by Bomb's and POW blocks. After a couple turns, they will be dead. Touch the card and watch what happens. It will switch to Peach and you get to play as her (just like in Super Mario RPG). Check behind the painting next to the fireplace to find a switch. Press the switch and go into the secret area and press the switch to the left. You will be in Bowser's Room (Do Not worry). Head to the left and read his Diary. Peach will be caught and Twink will go find Mario. Go back to Toad Town and do not forget to blow up the crack and enter the pie to get a badge. On your way back you will fight Jr. Troopa so just kill him by using Power Jump and Bomb. As you enter, you will meet up with Twink again. After that head down to the Train Station (it is at the bottom of Toad Town) and use Bombette to blow up the rock. Go talk to the person in front of the train and head to Mt. Rugged. -End of Chapter 1 Start of Chapter 2- Get off the train and save. Head up the path and meet Parakarry. He will tell you his trouble then set out to find his letters. The first is found on a cliff, sorta, so use Kooper to retrieve it. After this head right and up until you reach a broken bridge. Head down and right to find the second letter then return to the screen before and head left this time and get the Star Piece. Use the jump and continue left. You will see the letter but not be able to reach it yet so continue left. When you reach a sort of cave head in there and left to go in a secret path to get a Damage Dodge Badge. Use the spring and head right then head down the ramp. Land and head right to pick up the letter. Return to Parakarry and then he will join your group. Return to where you got the first letter and head to there then cross to the next platform to get the Quake Hammer Badge (it really helps in the temple) then to where the spring was before the third letter and go across to get a Star Piece as well as a couple coins and the seed located to the right of where you head up to reach either letter three or letter two. Head to where you could not reach before and cross there. When you reach the other end, Buzzar will come and you should not fight him yet so say your name is Luigi (heh heh heh, what an ignoramus, heh heh heh). Head down and heal and save. You will be at Kolorado's site (give him his letter for a Star Piece). Continue heading right while staying on the path and avoiding the pokeys and bandits. When you reach a stone pokey, get caught in the tornado and jump up between the three trees to make a badge appear then head down. When you reach a sign, head down two areas to reach an oasis containing trees the contain a lemon (needed for Sheek) and a lemon as well as a Super Block for upgrading a party member (I recommend Kooper as his shell abilities are useful against the pokey mummies in the ruins). Return to the sign and head right to enter the outpost. Head to the very end of the city then return to where the store is then return to the end. Talk to Sheek and give him a lemon and laugh at what he says (Oh, heavenly! A Lemon!! The nicest of nice things!). Select "How to see Moustafa" and he will say "buy a dried shroom then a dusty hammer". Head to the store and buy these. Return to where he was and enter the door. Head up the boxes and head from rooftop to rooftop picking up the letter on the way until you reach a door. Enter the door and talk to "Sheek". He will reveal himself to be Moustafa. After some talk, he will give you the pulse stone so you can find the ruins. I now suggest you go behind the crates between Toad's house and the house Sheek was blocking. You will find Merlee who will, for coins, place a spell on Mario that will give him various things at various times for a certain amount of time depending on what you pay for. Buy the best you can afford and stock up on good items and head out to find the ruins. After the area with the stone cactus, keep heading up and you will reach a podium with a hole in it. Place the pulse stone in it and watch the ruins rise. Heal and enter the ruins and save. Take out Kooper and have the Power Quake badge on. Defeat the enemies here and grab the Spike Shield Badge from the second coffin. Head down and grab the key. Return to the previous room and use the key on the door up above. Step on the switch. Head out and heal then return to the room where you got the key and enter the now accessible door. Head up the stairs and use Parakarry to carry you across the gap then use Bombette to blow up the crack. Step on the switch then grab the Star Piece. Grab the key from the room below then head down the stairs and unlock the door. Go to the end of the room and hit the block. Three pokey mummies appear and you must beat them to get a key. I recommend the combo of Power Quake and Kooper's Power Shell. After beating them, grab the key and unlock the door. Use Parakarry to carry you across the gap and enter the door. Press the green switch then hit the one that is at the top of the stairs. Head down to the stairs and head to the top of the platform across from the switch you just hit. Head down the pink stairs and hit the switch. Head up the green stairs then the pink stairs. Head down the stairs and work your way to the other end then fall of into the upper area and head to the left to pass through a hidden wall to get the Slow Go badge which is pretty much useless. Fall down and pick up the Super Hammer then smash the Stone Block. Head back to where you fought the pokey mummies and hit the switch then smash the block to get Artifact. Head to the room to the right and enter the door on the right. Smash the Stone block and get ready to fight a Stone Chompa. Grab the Pyramid Stone and then fight the Chompa. I now recommend you heal outside of the ruins then return to the room before the Super Hammer. Blow up the crack and fall down. I recommend you use the Super Block on Parakarry (because he is a real big help on the boss). Blow up the crack in the wall and be ready to fight another Stone Chompa because there is one in the block. After that is done, grab the Diamond Stone. Jump on the spring to head back up. Head to the room to the right and head into the room at the bottom and then press the switch and get the key then head left and pass the enemies. Return to the room with the five Chompa statues and use the key on the door. Hit the switch and head down and across the sand and enter the new room to get the Lunar Stone. Head back to the room with the five statues and put the stones in in this order [Pyramid-Nothing- Diamond-Nothing-Lunar] and stairs will be created. Head down them and heal and save. Take out Parakarry and prepare to face Tutankoopa. He has 30 HP so it should not be that hard. Keep using Shell Shot and Jump attacks and when he has out his Chompa use Quake Hammer instead. After you beat him, you watch the funny part of Chompa betraying him. LOL. Touch the Star Spirit Card to free Mamar. When it asks to save, save. It will switch to Bowser going to Peach's room and he gets told that the Star Spirit flew away from Tubba Blubba's castle. Then as Princess, you must use the secret passageway and head out the door then enter the door below it. You will be in the Library. OOT veterans should find this easy, as you must sneak around the Library without being seen. It is easy as the guards can only see what is in front of them. Work your way to the left and do not forget to pick up the Power Rush Badge. Once you reach the end, you will over hear a conversation about Tubba Blubba. Read and then Princess will be caught. It will switch back over to Mario and Mamar. She will give Mario an extra Star Power called Lullaby. Give Kolorado the Artifact for a Star Piece then as you are heading to Mt. Rugged's train station do not forget to kill Buzzar. Then head back to Mt. Rugged's train station after this and ,sorry, but do not forget to smash the Stone Block to get another Super Block (I recommend Bombette). Once you are ready, head to the guard house which is located across the bridge in the area where the Toad Tunnels and Tayce T.'s house are. Follow the ghost into the forest. -End of Chapter 2 Beginning of Chapter 3- The forest will turn dark and a Boo will appear. He will tell you his story then you might wet yourself. Head into the forest. When you reach flowers that laugh, go that way. Next, talk to the guy then check for eyes that appear out of a stump. Next, head the way with the different flowers. Head left until you reach an area where you can head up and do it so you get a Magical Seed then head the way with a tree with a face (you must wait). Head to the path to the right and check around the area there to get a HP Plus Badge then head back. Take the path that contains the most mushrooms. Now this time head the way with the flowers that laugh (you will have to check the flowers). This time look for a SIGN as in signpost. Head to the right of this and enter that area. Head left and up to get a FP Plus Badge. Return to the sign and enter. Enter the gate and heal and save. Enter the mansion and head up the stairs. Head to the empty portrait and it will tell you what to do. Head into the room closest to it and BOO!!!! You will see a big Boo so do not' worry. Open the middle cabinet to release the Boos. Win their little game to receive the record. Head to the room to the left of it and use the record. Do as it says to play the record. Play it to draw the Boo away from its chest. You will receive the Weight. Go to the furniture on the main floor and jump on the brown piece. Use the weight and enter the door. Open the chest then head downstairs. Blow up the right wall and in the end of the room, you will see Boo's Portrait. Head back to the room before and enter the door. Enter the door and open the BIG chest. Talk to the Boo in the corner then test your new ability in front of him. Smash through the floorboards then hit the three switches and leave. Return to the room where you got the record. Hit near the middle of the carpet to reveal a Star Piece. Head to the room beside the secret room. Smash the two lower blocks in the right side of the room for some apples. Use the box on the left side to do the Old Mario trick (Note: You can only mini-jump in this form). When you are done fooling around smash through the floorboards. Head straight up and switch to Parakarry. Use him to carry you across to get Boo's Portrait. There is a Star Piece in the bottom box in the room so get it as well. Head back to the portrait and talk to it to place the portrait back in then jump in the picture. Enter either doors and watch the events. Head to the entrance and head to the right of the mansion. Go through the gate and Spin Stomp the ground in front of you to find a hidden panel. Head right, past the Hyper ParaGoombas and you will enter a village (kind of) where you will be greeted by a ghost. Save then enter the next part of the town. Heal if needed then head right and watch in horror or not as Tubba Blubba comes and eats a ghost (bleak!!) right before your eyes and no it is not scary. Continue heading right and be sure to get the Repel gel from the block as well as the letter. Head to the next area and use Parakarry to go across the gap. Grab the Star Piece from behind the rocks and continue on heading right. You will be in front of TB's castle. Save and enter the building. Take out Bow and use her ability to shield you from the "Siren Men". Head left while using Bow so you don't battle any one until you reach the next area. Now, if you don't want to die then tip toe around the sleeping guards and run like heck past the awake ones. When you reach the end, enter the room above and get the star piece. Then head into the door to your left. You have to get into the upper left room behind the pacing guard so distract him and enter it. Head to the bottom while avoiding the two slumbering guards and smash through the floor boards. Get the key from the chest, heal and return to the main area with the siren guards using the stairs to your left not forgetting the Super Block , I recommend Bow so she will do more damage against TB's heart, and you'll know how to reach it from there. Unlock the area and run towards the stairs while avoiding the two guards. More next time as I haven't relieved myself from my writters block but I will still answer any questions that you may have. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 4.
