Rip Cheato

“I, the eminent Rip Cheato, will sleep better knowing you've bought this, for you are a man of great taste.”
Rip Cheato, Paper Mario

In Paper Mario, a shady, seedy character named Rip Cheato sells Mario items for 64 coins in the last room of Toad Town Tunnels. He has a few Star Pieces for sale, but he also has junk items such as Dried Shroom that Mario must pay for first to collect all his finer wares.

The pipe in his room leads to the blue locked house in Toad Town near Tayce T. The pipe makes a convenient secondary entrance/exit to the tunnels.

Tattle[edit]

  • He's a merchant by the name of Rip Cheato. Who knows why he set up here... I guess it doesn't matter. People can sell stuff wherever they want. It's their choice. I actually kind of like it here. It's like a secret fort!

Trivia[edit]

  • His counterpart, Chet Rippo, also appears in Paper Mario, as well as in the sequel, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, where he looks much different.
  • Although Rip Cheato has yet to return in a new Paper Mario installment, Charlieton, a merchant selling assorted goods makes an appearance in The Thousand-Year Door, "takes over" for Rip Cheato. Similarly, another merchant named Flimm appeared in Super Paper Mario.
  • His name is a pun on "rip-off" and "cheater".
  • The fixed price of 64 coins for all of his goods references the Nintendo 64, which is the console Paper Mario is played on.
