“Oh, stop with the whining! You never interrupt an elder mid-lecture! NEVER! You wonder why the other Punies call you a "doofus" sometimes? That's why. And your time to be a doofus is over, because you have to lead our Puni tribe one day! That day is not far off! ...And THAT is why you need to listen! Now, first of all...”
The Puni Elder is an elderly Puni with a short temper. She is the leader of the Puni tribe during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Whenever she yells at someone, she grows to a tremendous size. During Mario's quest, she gave him the Puni Orb. As she is old and has bad hearing, the Puni Elder mispronounces Mario's name as 'Marty-O' and, during Bowser's visit to the Great Tree, mistakenly refers to Princess Peach as 'Princess Pinch'.
