Petalburg is a peaceful village filled with flowers and found in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Koopas, Toads, and a couple of Bub-ulbs reside in the village. The mayor of the town is an old Koopa named Kroop. Petalburg is where Koops, a member of Mario's party, hails from. The peaceful village used to be terrorized by the dragon Hooktail. Thankfully, Mario, Goombella and Koops put an end to the dragon's reign of terror.

Similar to Koopa Village from Paper Mario, Petalburg is divided into two scenes and has six houses in a row by the north side: an inn, a shop, a Koopa's house who is a Peach fan, the mayor's house, Koops's house, and a Toad girl's house. However, Petalburg has rivers containing Nibbles.

History[edit]

Mario and Goombella encounter the village on their search for the first Crystal Star in Chapter 1. The Koopa who greets them mentions that Hooktail is terrorizing the area, which has hampered the local tourism. When asked about the Crystal Star, he suggests the pair to ask the mayor about it. The pair then visit Mayor Kroop's house, and is told that they must get the stone keys in Shhwonk Fortress past the village. Before they go, however, they are stopped by Koops, who intends to say something but is overcome by his shyness so does not say much. When they have retrieved the stone keys and ready to leave the village from the entrance they came in for the first time, Koops comes out and pledge to join their party. After they have defeated Hooktail and got their first Crystal Star, Koops says goodbye to his father Koopley, his girlfriend Koopie Koo, and Mayor Kroop in the village, and the three continue their adventure.

In the Bowser intermission at the end of Chapter 2, Bowser and Kammy Koopa are in Petalburg. Bowser spots Princess Peach, and starts talking to her, only to find out it was a poster.

Later in the game, the General White hunt in Chapter 7 as well as several sidequests requires Mario and his partners to revisit the village. When the box containing the Shadow Queen is opened, shadows appear all over the world, including Petalburg, where the characters then know what is going on and cheer up Koops's team. Finally in the game, Goombario's email shows that Koops, after having defeated the Shadow Queen, lives peacefully in the village with Koopley and Koopie Koo and wants to be the mayor of the village.

Area Tattles[edit]

  • This is Petalburg. It's nice and warm here, and the air is sooo clean... Such a peaceful hamlet... There's a shop and an inn, so you buy stuff and rest. Oh, and one more thing... The river's pretty, but fall in and Nibbles will getcha!
  • This is Petalburg. The warm weather makes the locals laid-back and happy. Wow, and talk about unique personalities... Very... individualistic, to put it nicely. Or, not so nicely... Downright kooky...
