“Ohhh, thank the stars! You've saved me! You heroic souls!”
—Lady Lima, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
Lady Lima is the Beanbean Kingdom's ambassador during the events of the game, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Lady Lima knows a lot about the Beanstar and how to awaken it. Lady Lima is normally the one to come up with ideas for Queen Bean. When Mario and Luigi first arrived at Beanbean Castle, they met who they thought was Lady Lima, but was actually Cackletta in disguise. Cackletta imprisoned the brothers in the basement of the castle, while she and Fawful stole the Beanstar. Afterwards, when she met the bros., she gave Mario and Luigi tips and information on how to get the Beanstar back. She may not seem important, but Lady Lima makes up part of the brains in the team. At the end of the game, she turns out be old friends with Toadsworth possibly because she plays the same role as him.
