Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (Mario & Luigi RPG 2×2 in Japan) is an turn-based action RPG video game for the Nintendo DS, developed by AlphaDream and published by Nintendo. It is the second title in the Mario & Luigi series, preceded by Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for the Game Boy Advance, and succeeded by Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story for Nintendo DS, and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team for the Nintendo 3DS.
The elements of this game is part turn-based RPG, part action RPG, and part platformer, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time took the formula from Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and revamped it to take advantage of the Nintendo DS's new features. While it made almost no attempt to utilize the touch screen (Mario must rub the dirt off of a drawing at one point), the game used the addition of the and buttons, the extra screen, and greater graphical capabilities.
Like its predecessor, it is one of the few Mario games to have been released in North America before Japan. The English and Spanish names of this game are puns on the title of the short story compilation Partners in Crime.
During Mario and Luigi's infancies, Shroobs from a distant planet find the Mushroom Kingdom and invade it. The invasion forces Baby Mario, Baby Luigi, Baby Peach, Toadsworth the Younger and Baby Bowser (who had been attempting to kidnap Baby Peach at the time) to flee in the Koopa Cruiser.
In the future, Princess Peach, Toadiko, and Toadbert travel to the past via Professor E. Gadd's time machine, which is powered by the Cobalt Star. But when the device returns, it is occupied by a hostile alien, forcing Mario and Luigi to use a newly-formed time hole in the castle gardens to go to past to find Peach. Upon their arrival, they are attacked and defeated by Shroobs in Hollijolli Village, but Baby Mario and Baby Luigi arrive and save their adult selves soon afterward. The adult Mario Bros. join the rest on the Koopa Cruiser, but is attacked by Princess Shroob, the leader of the Shroobs, and crashes into Baby Bowser's Castle where Mario, Luigi, Baby Mario, and Baby Luigi find a Cobalt Star Shard. They travel through another time hole to the present day Princess Peach's Castle with Toadsworth and Baby Peach, who they leave behind as they return to the past through a new time hole opened by the Cobalt Shard.
The time hole leads to Toadwood Forest, where the group finds a weakened Toadiko wrapped in a tree's branches. She manages to tell them that the Shroobs have kidnapped Peach before the tree sucks away the last of her vim and she turns into a Shroob Mushroom, which the aliens use to fuel their ships. The Mario Bros. travel to the Shroobs' Vim Factory to shut down the operation. The babies receive Hammers after they defeat the L33t Hamm3r Broz. and when the protagonists defeat the Swiggler, they briefly obtain a second Cobalt Shard before Baby Bowser and Kamek steal both of their star shards.
After a brief stop in Peach's Castle of the present and learning the Toadsworth Twist, the protagonists use another time hole to travel to Yoshi's Island of the past, where all the Yoshis have disappeared. They find Kamek and follow him back to Baby Bowser; Kamek attacks them but is defeated and they chase after Baby Bowser, who swallows the Cobalt Shards when they corner him. All of them are then eaten by a massive Shroobified Yoshi monster, Yoob. Inside the Yoob, they find the missing Yoshis and an amnesiac Toadbert, who is carrying a partly obscured drawing that he made of what happened to him. After the Mario Bros. and their baby counterparts defeat Sunnycide and everyone escapes Yoob, including Baby Bowser, who coughs up the Cobalt Shards.
After learning the Bros. Ball, the protagonists next visit Gritzy Desert, where they meet Kylie Koopa, and find a secret entrance to the Koopaseum, arriving in time to witness Princess Peach being swallowed whole by Petey Piranha. The brothers defeat the Shrooboid Brat in the arena, angering Princess Shroob who breaks the floor and sends them falling into Gritzy Caves. The brothers fight and defeat Petey Piranha, recovering a Cobalt Shard and saving Kylie Koopa (who had almost been fed to him too). They find Princess Peach, whose face is covered by a Shroob Mushroom and take her back to the present day castle. Bowser attempts to kidnap her but falls through a time hole to Thwomp Volcano.
After learning the Baby Spin and Baby Cakes, the brothers follow Bowser and travel to the top of the erupting volcano. They meet Professor E. Gadd’s younger self, who thinks up of an idea of making a machine that could douse the volcano's fire, which the older E. Gadd creates in the present time. He then uses his quickly built invention to spray water into the time hole and stop the volcano. After a skirmish with the angry resident, Mrs. Thwomp, the Mario Bros. are carried into the volcano by her husband, where they solve various puzzles and fight and defeat Bowser and Baby Bowser (who had been shot into the volcano after being blown away from Yoshi's Island). Bowser is sent careening back to the present while baby Bowser flies off on his own, but before the protagonists can collect the princess, she is sucked up by the Shroob Mother Ship. The brothers board the ship and team up with Kylie to try and save Peach, but they all simply end up being ejected from the vessel. The four Mario Bros. land in Toad Town and from there, travel to Star Hill.
There they are attacked by the Commander Shroob, his Support Shroobs, and a Shroob-omb. Once Commander Shroob and his team are defeated, the four heroes head to the top of Star Hill where the protagonists talk to the Cobalt Star's Spirit which tells them that when the find five out of the six parts of the Cobalt Star, they can enter Shroob Castle.
The heroes head to the Star Shrine, where another Cobalt Shard is located. The brothers then meet up with Toadbert and Kylie Koopa, who now know how to clean Toadbert's picture, revealing the depiction of a second Shroob princess. They group is attacked by the Elder Shrooboid, which turns Toadbert and Kylie into Shroob Mushrooms before it could be stopped by the Mario Bros. After collecting another Shard from the vanquished Shroob, the Mario Bros. travel to the Shroob Castle in the past by way of the future castle and its many time holes. Mario and the gang take down the Shroob Mother Ship and finally find Princess Peach being held captive by Princess Shroob, who they battle and defeat. Peach shows them the final piece of the Cobalt Star but won't let them merge it with the other pieces, however before she can explain why, Baby Bowser swoops in and completes the Cobalt Star himself, releasing the Elder Princess Shroob, who had been trapped in the star by Princess Peach. Baby Bowser is turned into a Shroob Mushroom for his troubles and Elder Princess Shroom attacks the Mario Bros. next, but they defeat her and she transforms into a purple mushroom.
By accident, Baby Luigi cries on the Shroob Mushroom that used to be Baby Bowser, restoring his former self. Professor E. Gadd then uses his Hydrogush 4000 invention to sprays a liquid with the same chemical makeup as baby tears all across the Mushroom Kingdom of the past, restoring everyone else who had been affected by the Shroobs. The Mario Bros. discover Bowser unconscious in Peach's Castle in the present and Elder Princess Shroob's mushroom flies into his mouth, turning him into Shrowser for one last attack on the Mario Bros. After Shrowser is beaten and the Shroob threat is finally put to rest forever, Toadsworth the Younger, Baby Peach, Baby Mario and Baby Luigi all use the repaired time machine and travel back to their own time, bidding farewell to their future selves.
These are the enemies fought in the game.

To start a battle, Mario, Luigi, or their baby selves must touch an enemy or perform a First Strike by jumping on or hitting the enemy with a hammer in the overworld. A first strike damages the enemy (if jumped on) or possibly stun them (if hit with a hammer) as the battle starts. If an enemy with spikes or fire is jumped on, the brother who jumped on the enemy is damaged. Additionally, if the enemy starts the battle by hitting a Bro. in the back, that brother cannot move until his turn. Since the game is a turn-based RPG, the player and enemies take turns attacking each other. The player can use well timed attacks to deal more damage. The player can also counterattack the enemy to damage them (see below). The enemies never counterattack but can harm the brother if they have spikes or are on fire and are jumped on.
Each brother has his own HP, POW, DEF, SPEED, and STACHE points. When the brothers finish a battle, they each gain EXP points. With enough EXP Points, a brother can level-up and increase each respective statistic.
- HP (abbreviation of Heart Points) is the amount of life a brother has. When an enemy hits one of the brothers, he loses HP. When his HP reaches zero, he passes out, but can be revived with a 1-Up Mushroom or 1-Up Super.
- POW (abbreviation of Power) is how strong a brother is. The higher his POW stats are, the more damage he gives.
- DEF (abbreviation of Defense) is how much damage a brother can lessen from an enemy hit. The higher his DEF stats are, the less damage he receives.
- SPEED is how fast a brother is. The more SPEED he has, the sooner he can attack an enemy in a given turn.
- STACHE is the most unique of the stats. The higher a brother's STACHE stats are, the greater there is a chance of a Lucky Hit, which doubles POW. Plus, it gives the brother discounts when buying and selling at shops.
During a battle, the four brothers have five choices when attacking, unless Mario and Luigi are not paired with the babies; instead, they would have four choices. They can use a jump move, a Hammer move, a Bros. Item, use an item, or run from battle.
During a jump move, a brother jumps on an enemy. When Mario jumps on an enemy, he uses , for Luigi, on Baby Mario, and for Baby Luigi's jump. Hitting their button when they are about to land on the enemy does extra damage. The babies can participate in battle, assisting their older counterparts. If so, when the two older bros. attack and land on an enemy, the player should press the babies button, and then the adult brother's button. This deals more damage to the enemy.
After Baby Mario and Luigi enter the Vim Factory, they get hammers to use in battle. However, the adult Mario and Luigi cannot use this move without the babies with them, as they do not have hammers. When one of the babies attack with a hammer, the player must hit their button (either or ) when the tool shakes to deal more damage. If the player waits too long or hits the button too early, the hammer head falls off the hammer and the baby brother does much less damage. When the corresponding button is hit before they directly face the enemy, they trip and fall flat on the enemy, also yielding less damage. When the adult bros. are with the babies, they can perform a stronger attack with them. When doing this, the player must hit the adult button ( or ) to have Mario or Luigi lift up the baby. Then, they must hit the baby button ( or ) when their hammer shakes. This deals more damage than a normal hammer attack. The hammer move does less damage than a jump move, and it is best used when fighting a spiked enemy. Flying enemies avoid the hammer altogether.
The bros. using a Bros. Item.
Bros. Items are special attacks that the brothers can use to deal more damage. Some Bros. Items require at least two brothers standing while some require all bros. Some items that require two bros. have special commands that can be used to deal more damage than normal with all four bros. Note that some items are unlocked later in the game than others.
|One of the brothers kicks this item towards an enemy. It rebounds off the enemy, while the enemy takes damage, and back towards the other brother. The other brother must kick the shell back to the enemy to repeat the process, while the Green Shell increases its speed more times it is kicked. The Green Shell disappears when the enemy is defeated, sixteen successful hits are dealt, or if a brother misses it. If the brother using the item has his baby self piggyback, his baby self rides on the shell: if players press the baby brother's corresponding button, the baby brother spins the shell, dealing more damage to the enemy.
|Both brothers toss fireballs at multiple enemies. The player should press the button of the brother when the big fireball is on the brother's hand. If the brother's baby self is piggyback, pressing the corresponding baby button enables the brother to lob their fire balls, hitting aerial foes. This item can cause a burn status to enemies.
|All four brothers jump inside a canon, which launches them into the top screen. A random order of the four brothers can be seen as they land, and players should press the corresponding button in order to deal more damage to an enemy.
|A brother kicks the egg to an enemy. As it flies in the air, the player must hold the corresponding button to let a brother build up energy to kick the egg at the enemy. When released with correct timing, the brother kicks the egg at the enemy. The process repeats back and forth until either the egg cracks or when the enemy is defeated. When the egg cracks, a possible free item can result out of it. When a baby brother is piggyback, he can jump and hit the egg to make it fall faster to deal more damage to the enemy.
|A Chain Chomp is released, which chases a brother and goes offscreen. Then, as the brother approaches the enemy, the player should press the corresponding button when the brother lands on the enemy to deal more damage and run away from the Chain Chomp. The attack ends when the enemy is defeated or when the Chain Chomp catches the running brother. If three or more brothers are present during the battle, a baby brother occasionally rides on the chariot. Pressing the corresponding baby button causes the baby brother to spin his Hammer, causing more damage to the enemy if timed correctly.
|Identical to the Green Shell, except the shell is capable of hitting more than one enemy and lasts until a brother misses the shell or if all enemies are defeated.
|Identical to the Bros. Flower, except the brothers toss iceballs instead of fireballs. The only difference is that this item can randomly lower the enemies' Attack, Defense, and/or Speed.
|All four brothers jump on the trampoline, which launches them off screen. One brother comes down in a random order, and the player should press the corresponding to deal damage to enemies and keep the attack going. Another brother eventually comes down to a random enemy, and the process repeats, with each jump exponentially speeding up the process. The attack ends when the player fails to press the button at the right time or when the enemy is defeated.
|Many copies of the brothers are spawned, and they walk offscreen. In a completely random order, the brothers walk up to the enemy and jump on them. Players must execute a well-timed jump with the corresponding button to continue the attack and deal more damage to the enemy, with each jump exponentially speeding up the process. The process ends when a jump is failed or when the enemy is defeated.
|Similar to the Bros. Flower, the player should press the button of the corresponding brother to build a giant fireball and keep it up in order to deal more damage. The bigger the fireball, the more damage it causes. After some period of time, when the player cannot keep up with the speeding up process, the fireball falls and deals damage to all opponents.
When choosing the item icon, the four heroes can use an item to recover HP. Other items, such as Refreshing Herbs, can heal status effects. When one of the bros. passes out, the other bros. can use a 1-Up Mushroom or 1-Up Super to revive him. However, once an item is used, the bro.'s turn is over. Peppers are another type of item that can be used with this icon and can temporarily increase the bros. stats.
Mario, Luigi, and the babies can both flee from battle when they choose the flee icon. When getting away, the player must hit either the or button to make Mario or Luigi flee. If the babies are in battle, the player must hit the or button. However, if they do not do this quickly, one of the bros. falls and drop a large amount of coins unless a wallet badge is equipped. When both bros. have left the screen, they end up back in the overworld and continue their adventure. The player can cancel this attempt by pressing the button, though it uses up a turn.
Mario, Luigi, or Baby Mario and Baby Luigi can either use their Hammer or Jump moves to avoid attacks. With their Jump move, the brothers can jump over the attacking enemy. When using the Hammer to avoid attacks, the player must hold Baby Mario or Baby Luigi's respective button (Baby Mario is , Baby Luigi is ) and release just as the enemy or its weapon hits.
The four bros. can also use these moves to counterattack. When they jump over an enemy, they may land on them, causing damage. Baby Mario or Baby Luigi can also hit enemies with their hammer during an enemy's turn. Either way, the enemy takes damage on its turn.
Baby Mario and Baby Luigi separate from their older counterparts
The four heroes can use some techniques out of battle. All of the following techniques must be learned by progressing in the game, except for jumping.
Mario and Luigi techniques
When Mario and Luigi are without the babies outside of battle, they can do the following techniques:
- Mario and Luigi can both jump.
- Mario and Luigi can perform a Spin Jump. They can use this technique in a whirlwind to go farther.
- Mario and Luigi can form a Bros. Ball.
When Baby Mario and Baby Luigi are alone outside of battle, they can do the following:
- The babies can both jump.
- Baby Mario can use his Hammer.
- The babies can perform a Baby Drill.
- Baby Mario can fill himself up with water when near a fountain. Then, Baby Luigi can hit him with his hammer to spit out the water quickly.
There are also techniques where all the heroes are needed. They can do the following:
- Mario and Luigi can flatten the babies into Baby Cakes by rolling over them while in Bros. Ball mode.
- The babies can be picked up by the older bros.
- The four heroes can perform a Piggyback Jump.
- Mario and Luigi can perform a Baby Toss, and throw the babies to higher areas.
- Mario and Luigi can make the babies perform a Spin Jump by spin jumping into them. The babies then slowly float down and can use a whirlwind to go farther.
- Main article: List of shops in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
Four shops are found in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. One, the Shroom Shop, is found in the main hub in Princess Peach's Castle. The rest are found in levels throughout the game. Fawful's Bean 'n' Badge sells Badges exclusively at a price of beans rather than coins.
- Main article: Clothing#Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
Clothing boosts the brothers' stats. There are two categories of clothing: one made specifically for the adult brothers and one made specifically for the baby brothers. Unlike Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, clothing is not restricted to a specific brother. Clothing is either dropped by enemies, found in blocks, or purchased in shops.
- Main article: Badge#Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time 2
Badges cause miscellaneous effects when worn and can be universally worn by all brothers. Such effects include unlimited use of Bros. Items or restoring HP every turn. They do not increase a brothers' base stats. Badges can be purchased in shops, exclusively purchased in Fawful's Bean 'n' Badge, dropped by enemies, or won by completing minigames.
Notable mistakes and errors
- In the North American instruction booklet, on page 27, has a Japanese screenshot, where "Stache" is listed as "Hige".
- In the North American instruction booklet, on page 32, has the following sentence: "Approach either side and speak to the sales-Toad to make the corresponding menu will appear," where the word will is an unnecessary addition to the sentence structure.

An early screenshot depicts Mario, Luigi, and their baby selves fighting two red shoe-clad Blooper foes (called Scoot Bloops) in the Vim Factory. Unfinished code for the Scoot Bloops remain the final build of the game. There are also screenshots of the four brothers using what appears to be a purple Spiny Shell as a Bros. Item. This item would act like a Koopa Shell, but would be hammered instead of kicked.

Locked in the Dungeon
If the player does not unlock the pipe leading from Peach's Castle to Princess Peach's Castle Dungeon, after the player has returned from the Star Shrine, the player will end up trapped in the Castle Dungeon and from there, the player will never be able to get back to Peach's Castle unless they last saved anywhere before the cutscene leading to the battle against the Adult and Baby Bowsers.

- "You are true and courageous. Your heart is filled with virtue and concern for your brother. I do recommend you watch your diet, however it is also filled with much Alfredo sauce. You should especially cut down on carbora, though it will be hard, for that is very tasty. If you curb your appetite, do some light cardio work and continue to ward your brother, you will no doubt grow to be a figure of immense popularity, yet not grow an immense belly. You may pass and I do recommend puttanesca; that stuff is great." -Star Gate
