List of implied characters
This list of implied characters is a list of characters that have not physically appeared in any form of media up to this point in time. Regardless of their lack of appearance, the implied characters have been mentioned at least once throughout the Mario series. For a list of non-fictional people who have been referenced throughout the series, please see the List of implied people.
Agent O (can also be called Secret Agent O) is an implied secret agent in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode, On Her Majesty's Sewer Service. After Princess Peach recruits Mario and Luigi, they meet Secret Agent N and he introduces himself. Luigi says "I see." followed by N saying, "Not C. N." Mario responds with "Oh.", leading N to say, "Not O. N. Agent O's on holiday." Agent O is never mentioned again after this.
Armored Harriers' mother
The Armored Harriers' mother, referred to as "Mom" by the twins, was referenced in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Grubba lied to the twins that Mario had said outie belly buttons run in their family. They were shocked that Mario would have known about their mother's belly button, which resulted in their bearing a grudge against Mario.
Ashley's teacher is mentioned during Ashley's theme song in WarioWare: Touched! and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In the song, she says her teacher was turned into a spoon by one of her spells. It isn't known if her teacher is male or female.
Aunt Maria is an aunt of Mario and Luigi's who was briefly mentioned by Luigi in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Crimes R Us". While Mario and Luigi were looking at clouds, Luigi commented that one of them resembled their Aunt Maria. However, the cloud looked nothing like a human.
An Aunt Maria was also mentioned in the book Doors to Doom, where Donkey Kong Jr.'s yell is compared to a cross between Tarzan's ululation and the screech Aunt Maria makes when the Mario Bros. walk on her newly waxed floor.
Bachelor's girlfriend is the unseen love interest of Bachelor in the Game Boy Advance version of Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. Little is revealed about the character, except that Bachelor implies that she is "hot", and is currently dating her. Like Bachelor, she is presumably a bear herself.
Big Bama and Neutron B
“While listening to country music, I do ten sets of 100 push-ups each. That's how I do such powerful attacks!! And also because I watch pro wrestling!! I like to cheer for Big Bama and Neutron B!!”
Big Bird is a tall, yellow bird who is a character on the TV show Sesame Street. Being a large bird himself, Prince Hugo's Parrot is a fan of Big Bird, and claims to keep a poster of him somewhere in his cage.
Big Rock Who Watches
In the opening of Chapter 5: Land of the Cragnons, when Mario opens the Cyan Door to the next dimension he finds himself in midair. Meanwhile, two tribesmen stand and pray for the survival of the Cragnons, who are being terrorized by the Floro Sapiens. When Mario falls into their midst, they believe he was sent by Big Rock Who Watches to save them. It would appear that Big Rock Who Watches is a spirit or god of sorts, or the Cragnon's lifeline in time of danger. It is also possible that Big Rock Who Watches is actually the player and the Cragnons are breaking the fourth wall, similar to Bestovius and Thoreau earlier in the game.
Bluebeard Baboon is a pirate mentioned in the Donkey Kong Country TV series episode "The Curse of Kongo Bongo". One thousand years prior to the events in the show, his ship, for unexplained reasons, sank, killing him. Every one hundred years afterward, his ghost will rise out of the ocean and deliver to everyone a letter containing "the curse of the double doubloon"; the letter, which is actually a description of the curse, states that anybody who reads it twice will cause the Crystal Coconut to lose its power and the island to sink into the ocean.
Blumiere's Father (or Count Bleck's Father) is a member of the Tribe of Darkness and the father of Blumiere, also known as Count Bleck. Little is known about the father, and he is only mentioned in a few of Blumiere's backstory segments in Super Paper Mario.
Blumiere's Father does not accept the love his son expresses for the human, Lady Timpani, for marrying anyone outside of the tribe was forbidden out of fear that their powerful magic bloodline would become diluted otherwise (as explained by Carson). Upon learning that the two lovers are planning to elope, Blumiere's father stops the marriage by using his magic powers to curse Timpani to wander the dimensions until the day she dies. Losing Timpani spurs Blumiere to steal the Dark Prognosticus from the care of his tribe so that he can destroy the world that took his love away. Blumiere's father begs him to stop, but Blumiere, now calling himself Count Bleck, kills him and wipes out the rest of the Tribe of Darkness as the first step towards destroying the world.
It is not made clear whether the world in which Blumiere's father lived was restored following the destruction of the Chaos Heart at the end of the game; as the dimension was apparently destroyed before The Void was opened, it is unknown as to whether the wedding of Blumiere and Timpani would have been capable of restoring it to normal. Thus, the ultimate fate of Blumiere's father and the other members of the Tribe of Darkness remains unknown.
Bluster Kong's mother is a character that is commonly referenced in the Donkey Kong Country TV series. She has been stated to be the owner of Bluster Barrelworks. Bluster is occasionally heard speaking with her on a mobile phone.
Bob-omb Sailor's Mum
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, one of the sailors at the inn in Rogueport mentions his Mum. Not much is known about her, except that she is always quoted as saying "Once you learn that timing, you're finally an adult Bob-omb."
Bobolink is a female Bob-omb with whom Swob was in love with. During this period of his life, Swob wrote, "I want to marry Bobolink in a shocker wedding," on a rock on the fiftieth floor of Rogueport's Pit of 100 Trials. He also wrote that he wanted to have 22 children, so his family could play football matches.
During the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, he believed that any wish written on the fiftieth floor of the Pit would come true. He used a "special big explosion" to get down to the fiftieth floor, and wrote the graffiti so fiercely that it would be almost impossible to remove. When he found out that this was a hoax, he filed a request at the Trouble Center. Mario accepted the trouble and had Admiral Bobbery destroy the wall after reading the wish.
A large number of unnamed Bob-ombs live in Fahr Outpost, but no evidence given indicates that Bobolink was one of them. Furthermore, no evidence implies that Bobolink and Swob married.
The Bog Monster is an apparently horrific creature that, according to Klump, eats everything in sight. It resides in the Forbidden Forest on Kongo Bongo Island, as stated in the Donkey Kong Country cartoon. As it is never seen, the only physical description given is in the lyrics to one of the songs in an, in which it's described as a monster having crystal skin, giant claws, dripping fangs, beady red eyes, stinky breath that could knock over a rhino, hair full of maggots, ears dripping something yellow, and arms thicker than a tree. Of course, this is when Donkey Kong saw it and that was Cranky Kong disguised as a Bog Monster, so there's no way of telling if this is an accurate description.
In the Donkey Kong Country episode "Bug a Boogie", it is revealed that Donkey Kong secretly feared the Bog Monster, as, when he was young, Cranky Kong told him that if he ventured into the Forbidden Forest, the Bog Monster would get him; one day, Donkey Kong disobeyed Cranky Kong and decided to go into the Forbidden Forest, only to encounter and subsequently be scared by a Bog Monster. It is later revealed to Donkey Kong by Cranky Kong that he had, in actuality, simply made up the story of the Bog Monster, and that it was him who scared Donkey Kong when he entered the Forbidden Forest, wanting to teach Donkey Kong a lesson in disobeying him.
Oddly, it seems the Bog Monster may have been an actual creature, as, at the end of "Bug A Boogie", Klump and Krusha, while trying to help King K. Rool out of a pit of quicksand he was stuck in, hear a monstrous roar in the Forbidden Forest, seemingly the Bog Monster.
Diddy Kong also has the unique talent of mimicking the roar of one.
Bowser's father or Morthophelus, is the father of King Bowser Koopa who was briefly mentioned by him in the Nintendo Comics System issues "Bedtime for Drain-Head" and "The Buddy System". As Bowser's father is only mentioned in passing, not much is known about him; though he is implied to be a criminal on the run, as Bowser tells the captured Toad that he hopes to see his father on the television program "Kingdom's Most Wanted", which is seemingly a parody of America's Most Wanted, a show dedicated in helping catch criminals.
Additionally, Bowser also mentioned that his father was the one who taught him the life lesson "'Son, when you put your mind to it, there's no problem big enough to run away from!". Mama Koopa is another non-game character who could have been married to Bowser's father. Poopa La Koopa is his implied father, as he is Bowser's grandfather. Alternatively, Poopa La Koopa could be his maternal grandfather. He is hated by Bowser for his attempt to destroy the universes.
Bowser's sister is one of Bowser's family members. She is only mentioned in the song Ignorance is Bliss. Bowser mentions that Princess Toadstool reminds him of his sister but does not reference her by name. Bowser claims that his sister's reading habits gave her a blister on her brain.
Since she only has one mention, little is known about her, besides the following facts:
Breadward is a Pixl that was mentioned by Mimi in the game Super Paper Mario. Not much is known about Breadward, except that he is made out of oats and lard. It is unknown what ability Breadward possesses, or if he even exists, as Mimi may have just been lying or kidding when mentioning Breadward. Breadward is mentioned when Mimi (disguised as Merlee) attempts to swindle Mario into signing a paper and earning the Pure Heart in exchange for some Rubees. If Mario refuses to sign the paper four times, she offers Breadward to him.
Britney is the lead female character in Toad Force V, an implied action TV show mentioned several times in Mario Party Advance; Britney herself is only brought up briefly by Mushbert in the mission DVD For Me.
Once of the few things known about Britney is that she surpasses the hero of Toad Force V, Jack, in popularity among the show's fanbase, presumably making her the most popular character in the series. She is Jack's sidekick, and together they are the only known members of the Toad Force V group of protagonists. It is possible that she, like many other characters on the show, is a robotic Toad, but this is theoretical as she is simply identified as a "Heroine", and nothing more.
The Cabin Proprietor is a character that owns the cabin found at near the starting point of Cool, Cool Mountain in Super Mario 64 and Super Mario 64 DS. On a sign outside the cabin is a message from the proprietor telling Mario that he can enter the cabin by leaping down into the chimney.
The Cannoli clan
The Cannoli clan is a family of thieves mentioned many times in the game Wario: Master of Disguise by Count Cannoli. This family has been a family of thieves for generations. Count Cannoli and Goodstyle which is actually the very first Cannoli, are the only seen family members in the game. It is unknown if there is any member in the family still alive other than them.
It is known that Goodstyle has been passed down in the family, and that each family member has had their own machine (Cannoli had the Mad Hat Mk. I) and that each machine had a weakness. The Mad Hat Mk. II has been protecting the Cannoli family for generations, and is probably the whole family's machine.
C. Paremesan is a book author implied in the Study in Luigi's Mansion. In this room, there is a book titled Darkness is Their Cheese, which clues the player about the hidden cheese during the blackout. C. Paremesan's name is a pun on a type of cheese, parmesan. The C in his name most likely stands for cheese.
The Cap'n is a character that is mentioned in Super Mario 64 and its remake. In a cavern accessible by swimming through an underwater tunnel past the ship in Jolly Roger Bay, there is a sign with a message from the Cap'n stating that anybody who enters will "meet certain disaster." At the end of the cavern, another sign near a group of treasure chests contains a second message from the Cap'n, this time stating that in order to obtain his treasure he must open the treasure chests in the correct order, but does not explain what it is. Opening the chests reveals that the Capn's "treasure" is the Power Star for the third mission.
As the word "cap'n" is simply short for "captain", the title has been used in other Mario games; an example of this is Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, where the captain of the S.S. Chuckola is referred to as "Cap'n" in one line of dialogue.
According to Luigi in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the Chestnut King is the villain who kidnaps Princess Eclair from the Waffle Kingdom and brings her to Hatesong Tower. Luigi travels to the tower by using the Marvelous Compass. Once there, Luigi challenged the Chestnut King to an epic battle. The beast king, who was dripping with toxic goo, eventually lost to Luigi and his Hammer. However, before Luigi could deliver the final blow, Princess Eclair appeared and stopped him. As it turns out, the Chestnut King and the princess were actually lovers (much to Luigi's dismay). The King was transformed into a monster through the magic of Minister Crepe of the Waffle Kingdom. Eventually, Luigi defeats the shadowy Crepe, presumably restoring the Chestnut King to his former self. Luigi never admits that he was wrong in believing that the Chestnut King was the Princess's captor, and Mario can only read about it in the Super Luigi book series.
The character Goomboss, also known as the Goomba King, shares the same name as the Chestnut King in various European translations and the original Japanese version of the game. Goombas are known as kuribō, "Chestnut People" in Japan, which is where Goomboss' name is derived, whereas the Chestnut King may be following the convention of food-related Waffle Kingdom names. It is unknown if they are meant to be the same character, as Goomboss was never said to be a transformed monster and has appeared since Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door's release.
Names in Other Languages
Chief Quimby is the chief of the Metro City police department. He regularly sends Inspector Gadget out on missions to stop Dr. Claw and his MAD Agents from pulling off evil schemes.
Chief Quimby, who was only ever referred to as "The Chief", had a minor role on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, in the live-action segment "Defective Gadgetry". In it, he called Inspector Gadget on his top-secret gadget phone, and asked when Inspector Gadget would be coming over. As Inspector Gadget was awaiting repairs at Mario Brothers Plumbing, he told the Chief that he would be on his way as soon as Mario and Luigi repaired his gadgets.
Clawdia Koopa is a character that is mentioned in one issue of Nintendo Power UK. Nothing is known of her except her name and that she is or was Bowser's wife, however there is much controversy surrounding whether or not she actually existed, or if she was mentioned as a joke. She was supposedly the mother of Bowser's original seven children, the Koopalings, however the situation was complicated by the subsequent introduction of Bowser Jr. in Super Mario Sunshine, as he had been told that Princess Peach was his mother. Furthermore, Bowser had been depicted as harboring a crush on Peach, starting with Paper Mario, and considered their forced marriage to be legitimate in Super Paper Mario, leading many to speculate that Clawdia was long since out of the picture. In a September 2012 interview, Shigeru Miyamoto stated that the Koopalings were no longer considered by Nintendo to be Bowser's children, rendering their maternal parentage a moot point; he also asserted that Bowser Jr,'s mother was simply "unknown".
Clowny the Clown
Clowny the Clown is a clown mentioned is in Wario: Master of Disguise. He is very kind and charming, and is considered to be the only clown that is not scary. As a result, he has gained such great popularity that he gives out his autograph to fans. His autograph is even worth a very large amount of money, because of his popularity.
“Fear the curse, but find your Eclair.”
Cranberry is the last of the Luffs. He played a very short, but integral part in Luigi's adventure during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
Luigi met Cranberry in Rapturous Ruins, where he was found sleeping. With a sneeze (a soft call in the Super Luigi novelization), Luigi awoke Cranberry and earned the ability to speak his language; Cranberry explained that the Luffs were once a great empire because of their use of the Marvelous Compass's powers, but they were cursed because of their greed. Seeing his own people fall into ruin, Cranberry decided to split the compass into seven parts to avoid the repetition of the Luffian fate, hiding six Marvelous Compass pieces and keeping one with himself in Rapturous Ruins. For a thousand years, Cranberry awaited a hero to complete the Marvelous Compass and save Princess Eclair. Luigi turned out to be this noble-hearted hero, and Cranberry promptly gave him the last compass piece. His purpose fulfilled, Cranberry then faded away with a joyful smile.
Cranberry is similar to Merlumina in many ways. Both are members of ancient civilizations who slept for unthinkable amounts of time awaiting heroes to accept the fragments of treasure they held.
Cranky Kong's great-grandfather
Cranky Kong's great-grandfather is a great-grandfather of Cranky Kong's, who was briefly mentioned by Bazaar in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!. Due to Cranky's old age, it can be assumed that his great-grandfather died a long time ago.
When Dixie or Kiddy Kong inquire about the Mirror that Bazaar is selling for fifty Bear Coins, Bazaar will mention that it belonged to Cranky Kong's great-grandfather and that he can't let it go for a lower price, for it is an antique. Aside from this, no mention of Cranky's great-grandfather has ever been made, meaning that whether or not the great-grandfather was maternal or paternal is unknown.
Dark Dirk is mentioned as being the evil twin and mortal enemy of the superhero Dirk Drain-Head.
The Dark Mage is a character mentioned in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. He resides in the dimension of Vanda, and appears to have great power in that dimension, seeing that one of his servants is one of the most powerful bosses in the game, Culex. The Dark Mage was the one who sent the Dark Knight Culex to Mario's universe, specifically the Mushroom World. The Dark Mage ordered Culex to fight on his behalf, possibly with the intent of conquering Mario's world and even his entire universe. However, Culex discovered that Mario's dimension was uninhabitable to people like Culex and others of his kind, presumably including the Dark Mage as well. As a result, whatever plans the Dark Mage had for the Mushroom World were suspended indefinitely.
The Dark Mage, like Culex himself, serves as one of many allusions to the Final Fantasy series in Super Mario RPG. The Dark Mage is possibly related to the Black Mage class that has appeared in the Final Fantasy series, the Mario-Final Fantasy crossover game Mario Hoops 3-on-3, and the Mario-Final Fantasy-Dragon Quest crossover game Mario Sports Mix. The Final Fantasy series, the Dragon Quest series, Super Mario RPG, Mario Hoops 3-on-3, and Mario Sports Mix were all developed by Square Enix (Squaresoft in Super Mario RPG).
Doctor and his friends
Dr. Claw is Inspector Gadget's arch-nemesis, who appears constantly throughout the Inspector Gadget series. Although Dr. Claw never made an actual appearance in the Mario series, he was briefly mentioned by Inspector Gadget during The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! live-action segment "Defective Gadgetry". When Mario and Luigi failed to properly repair Inspector Gadget's gadgets, he may have gotten the wrong impression and asked them, "How long have you been working for the evil Dr. Claw?". He was probably just saying this facetiously.
Elizagoom is a Goomba in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Like Goombriel, she is not seen in-game, only mentioned by Professor Frankly, trying to figure out who Goombella was. She is in University of Goom, a college where Goombella also went. The name is a pun on "Goomba" and "Eliza".
Ferndozers are robotic creatures seen in Donkey Kong Country Returns. Ferndozers never appear in game, and they're only seen in the concept art gallery which they are the only dumped concept characters that show their official names. According to how they appear in the concepts, Ferndozers look like monstrous tanks with a Barrel holding a giant chainsaw and a robotic arm. In a second concept art from the gallery it is shown that Ferndozers would appear in the Factory, many of them deforesting the Factory's surroundings.
Flight is a friend of Lakilester (whom he calls by his nickname, "Spike") in the game Paper Mario. When Flight learns that Lakilester was helping Mario he sends Lakilester a letter saying he will not forgive him unless he defeats Bowser, which Flight doubted would ever happen. However, Flight was proven wrong when Mario and Co. defeated Bowser and received the Star Rod, so the two Lakitus are probably friends again.
Names in Other Languages
Footsteps of Meat
Footsteps of Meat is a character (possibly a Sammer Guy) mentioned by Tippi in Super Paper Mario. While using her Tattle on Footsteps of Coins, she will reveal that he has a less-known brother called Footsteps of Meat. It may be a reference to the fact that Bowser can collect Meat in his intermissions of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and the fact that his brother puts coins in all levels, implying that Footsteps of Meat disperses the meat throughout Bowser’s levels.
Francis' mother was mentioned by Francis in Super Paper Mario during Princess Peach and Francis' conversation at Swoon.exe. When Francis asks Peach "What's your name?" Peach can choose the answer "Tell me your name first!", which will make Francis note that she's a woman with etiquette, which reminds him of his mother.
Goombriel is an implied Goomba in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. She is, however, not seen, like Elizagoom, but only mentioned by Professor Frankly when he is trying to remember Goombella. She is in University of Goom, a college where Goombella went also. The name is a pun on "Goomba" and "Gabriel".
Grandma Mia is a grandmother to Mario and Luigi, who was briefly mentioned by Mario in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "The Fire of Hercufleas". After Mario and his friends had helped train the obese Hercufleas back into shape, Mario remarked that Hercufleas was even stronger than his Grandma Mia's garlic chip cookies. This was the only time that Grandma Mia was ever mentioned, and no other information about her is known, including whether she is Mario and Luigi's maternal or paternal grandmother. Grandma Mia may even be another name for Grandma Mario, as Mama Mario is often referred to as "Mama Mia" by Mario and Luigi.
Other Possible Mentions
The following sources did not clarify as to whether or not they concerned Grandma Mia or Grandma Mario.
In the Club Nintendo comic "Super Mario Klemp-Won-Do: Muskeln sind nicht alles!", a grandmother of Mario's is mentioned by the narrator. Mario fought against Blanka, and defeated him by throwing Bananas into the ring, making Blanka slip and fall. It is said that even Mario's grandmother used to advise against keeping banana peels lying on the ground, and that it's "good that Mario never listened to her."
Grandpapa is Mario and Luigi's paternal grandfather, who was mentioned by Mario once in the Super Mario Bros. movie. In the film, the Mario Bros. came from a long line of plumbers, and their tools had been passed down to them by their Papa, who had received them from Grandpapa. It is not revealed whether Grandpapa was the first plumber in the family, or if he was merely continuing the tradition.
Great Aunt Grouchy
Great Aunt Grouchy is Cranky's great aunt in the Donkey Kong Country TV series. In the episode "The Curse of Kongo Bongo", Cranky uses a book written by her to explain the curse of the double doubloon to Donkey and Diddy Kong. He is later seen calling her about the curse, and she tells him that the spell to stop the curse is in her book. After hanging up, even though he was mad and yelling at her over the phone, he breaks the fourth wall to say, "Gotta love Great Aunt Grouchy." During the phone call, Cranky also states that he is her favorite nephew. Her name is synonymous with the word "cranky."
Grubba's date is an implied character from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. While Mario and his partners were setting up their next match on the Glitz Pit's terminal, Grubba will set a fighting condition, telling them to wrap it up in five turns or less. He then tells them that he has a date with a "cute li'l chickadee", and that he doesn't want to be late.
Hamma Jamma's father
Hamma Jamma's father is the father of Hamma Jamma who is mentioned twice in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He is notable for being the only known Business Bro., a possibly rare Hammer Bro. sub-species.
Little is known about Hamma Jamma's father, other than the fact that he is one of Hamma Jamma's many family members whom he left to join the Glitz Pit. Unlike Hamma Jamma's beloved grandfather, references to him are very rare. Hamma Jamma's first mention of him states that he dropped out of Hammer Bros. school, choosing to enroll in Business Bros. school. This act, possibly strange among belligerent Hammer Bros., seems to have embarrassed and confused his son. The last mention of him, however, seems to suggest that Hamma Jamma may still love his father: When referring to his dad this time, Hamma says that he's actually attending his fight that day (which could mean that he appeared in the audience during one of Mario's fights), and he wishes to win and impress him.
Hamma Jamma's grandfather
Hamma Jamma's grandfather is a Hammer Bro. of unknown name, brought up by his grandson several times in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Quite cleverly on Nintendo's part, he actually first appeared as an unknown Hammer Bro. in Super Mario Bros.
Hamma Jamma's grandfather actually never appears in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and may even be dead. However, as stated above, he earned several mentions in that game. These mentions are all the product of his grandson Hamma Jamma's ramblings. Hamma Jamma, a fighter in the Glitz Pit and member of the Hamma, Bamma, & Flare team, continually cites his grandfather as his inspiration. Apparently, his grandpa once owned his beloved hammer, and is one of Hamma's several family members he left behind to pursue a career in fighting.
However, as aforementioned, Hamma Jamma's grandfather may have in fact appeared in a Mario game of old (Super Mario Bros.). This is confirmed by Hamma Jamma's statement of "World 7-1" being his grandfather's "'hood". This is commonly taken as a clever reference to Super Mario Bros., which features a World 7-1 stage filled with Hammer Bros. It is unknown how well Hamma Jamma's grandfather fared during Mario's conquest of World 7-1, or if he still works for the Koopa Troop (if he is even still alive). Ironically, if he is dead, he would now be in the Underwhere, which is chapter 7-1 of Super Paper Mario.
Hizza is a giant, two-headed snake that Luigi fights during his adventure to assemble the Marvelous Compass and rescue Princess Eclair. During the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the people of Plumpbelly Village are forced to sacrifice young maidens to the monstrous snake Hizza. Eventually, the mayor's daughter is the next to be sacrificed. As such, Luigi puts on the young woman's dress and travels (with his new partner Jerry) to Hizza's lair. During the epic battle that follows, Luigi manages to trick Hizza's two heads into eating each other, thus destroying the creature for all eternity. As a result, the citizens of Plumpbelly Village no longer have to live in fear, and the mayor gives Luigi a piece of the Marvelous Compass.
Names in Other Languages
Holly's fortune teller
Holly's fortune teller is a mermaid who is mentioned in the The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "The Ugly Mermaid" who once told Holly that a frog prince would come into her life. When she met Mario, Holly instantly assumed that he was the frog prince the fortune teller had told her about.
Jabbula is an implied Jabbi mentioned by Goombella in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, when tattling a certain Jabbi in the Great Tree. Because of its name, this Jabbi is implied to be female.
Jabbubbity is another implied Jabbi mentioned by Goombella in the same tattle as above. Very little is known about Jabbubbity.
James is apparently the greatest thief who ever lived. He was mentioned in the enemy glossary of Wario: Master of Disguise. Although he steals well, he isn't very good at the "escaping" part. James has deceased, and his soul is inside the Sir Steal-A-Lot.
Johnson appears in a scene very early in the game. After Mario beats a tutorial battle with Lord Crump (in an attempt to save Goombella from him), the disgruntled X-Naut official summons several of his henchmen to attack Mario and his new friend. Thankfully, Goombella and Mario manage to escape the melee safely, leaving the X-Nauts to pummel Lord Crump. Angrier than ever, Crump calls off his force to realize that his enemies had vamoosed. Upon this epiphany, he addresses Johnson in a question of where they went before quickly opening that question to anyone who might know. It is unknown if Johnson (who seems to appear identical to a normal X-Naut Trooper) ever appears again.
It is possible that Johnson and the army of X-Nauts seen at the beginning of the game were the same ones accompanying Lord Crump to Keelhaul Key, and the army he calls upon to fight Bowser in Twilight Town. This has never been confirmed, although there certainly aren't as many X-Nauts in the X-Naut Fortress (when Mario ventures there) as there were in Crump's army, which was destroyed when Bowser set off the Superbombomb.
In the start of the The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode Misadventures in Babysitting, Junior's Parents are waiting a babysitter that will watch Junior while they're out. Instead of her, Junior's mother chooses Mario and Luigi to babysit Junior, as Junior's father think the real babysitter will not come for the boy's "bad reputation".
Kaptain Skurvy's father
Kaptain Skurvy's father is the unnamed father of Kaptain Skurvy. Little is known about him, except that he was a pirate, much akin to the rest of his family. When Kaptain Skurvy was a young man, his father told him legends of his great-great-great grandpappy, Prince Skurvy.
Kazooie is Banjo's bird friend and co-stars with him in their own video game series. She was briefly mentioned in Diddy Kong Racing's manual. She did not join the bear in his adventures with Diddy Kong on Timber's Island. This mention was actually Kazooie's first appearance in any game due to complications with the release of Banjo-Kazooie.
In an early screenshot of Donkey Kong 64, a picture of Kazooie's, as well as Banjo's, head could be seen on a shower stall in Donkey Kong's Treehouse; these Kazooie and Banjo pictures, along with the shower stall they were attached to, were later removed from the final version of Donkey Kong 64.

King Croacus I
King Croacus I, also known as the Iron Rose, was the first king of the Floro Sapiens. His existence and history is told by his painting. The Floro Sapiens regard him as their greatest king, since he united them all into the Flora Kingdom. He created the Flora Calendar and set the capital at the Floro Caverns. His nickname, the Iron Rose, comes from his heavy armor and deadly thorns. However, the wilting of his son in the Flora year 444 changed his mentality. He became corrupt, a period referred to as "The Darkening", at which point, his daughter staged a coup d'état and took over the Floro Sapiens. He ruled from the Flora Calendar's year 1 to year 496. His dying words were stated to be "The Iron Rose shan't wither!"
King Croacus III
King Croacus III was the third ruler of the Floro Sapiens. At age 4, he became the youngest king in Flora history after his mother wilted. Due to his young age, a regent ruled in his place. He was afflicted with a disease at birth, which made him weak and sickly. He had a great talent for art and poetry, releasing a book of poems called Ice Rose, at age 6. He wilted at age 12 for unknown reasons, but some suspected a conspiracy. He ruled from the Flora Calendar's years 1298 to 1385, the shortest rule of any Floro Sapien king. Due to his early death, he did not change the Flora Kingdom much. His regent succeeded him as the ruler of the Floro Sapiens, as King Croacus IV.
King K. Rool's mother
King K. Rool's mother was mentioned in the Donkey Kong Country episode "The Big Switch-A-Roo", while K. Rool was baking muffins. According to himself, that was his mother's recipe that he was using to make them.
She was also mentioned in "The Kongo Bongo Festival of Lights", when King K. Rool says he's going back to his home to visit his mother and siblings in the Festival of Lights.
King K. Rool's wife
King K. Rool's wife was mentioned in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! by King K. Rool when he mentions that he built KAOS out of her best pots and pans.
King Koopa's great-great grandkoop
King Koopa's great-great grandkoop is King Koopa's paternal great-great grandfather. He was mentioned in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Raiders of the Lost Mushroom" by King Koopa (or Kolonel von Koop, as he was called throughout the episode), who explained that his great-great grandkoop left the Lost Mushroom to him, so it was rightfully his property. Indiana Joe later made a reference to King Koopa's great-great Grandkoop, stating that he was the one who built the Temple of Koopa, presumably to hide the Lost Mushroom.
King Mousta was the king of Dry Dry Kingdom. He is only mentioned in the game Paper Mario by a Dryite in Dry Dry Outpost. King Mousta is probably already dead, since King Mousta's kingdom, the Dry Dry Kingdom got destroyed. King Mousta's name is very similar to Moustafa's name, and it is possible that King Mousta was an ancestor of Moustafa.
King Mushroomkhamen was, at one point, the ruler of Desert Land. He is the husband of Queen Mushroomkhamen, and the father of Prince Mushroomkhamen. He was briefly mentioned by his wife in The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 episode "Mind Your Mummy Mommy, Mario".
According to Queen Mushroomkhamen, Luigi looks just like King Mushroomkhamen. Because of this, Queen Mushroomkhamen fell in love with Luigi, much like she did with King Mushroomkhamen.
The current whereabouts of King Mushroomkhamen are unknown, as neither he nor even his mummy case were confirmed to be in his family's tomb.
King Sammer I
King Sammer I was the first ruler of Sammer's Kingdom and the great-great-grandfather of King Sammer V, who is the kingdom's current king. King Sammer I was mentioned by Garson at the Underwhere bar in Flipside in the game Super Paper Mario. When Merlumina's sister was sent to Sammer's Kingdom to deliver the purple Pure Heart, the two fell in love and had 100 children together, possibly the 100 Sammer Guys.
The Koopalings' great grand-Koopa mama
The Koopalings' great grand-Koopa mama is a supposed great grandmother of the Koopalings. She was only ever mentioned during the events of "Do the Koopa", in which Big Mouth Koopa Jr. brought up the story of his favorite string to Bully and Cheatsy. Although the story started off with Big Mouth speaking of their great grand-Koopa mama, Bully cut him off before he could go any further.
If the Koopaling's great grand-Koopa mama is indeed their great grandmother, she would therefore be either a grandmother of Bowser's (or the Koopalings' mother), and may also be the wife of Poopa La Koopa.
Kooper's mother is mentioned in a letter Kooper receives from Kolorado's Wife during Paper Mario. According to her, his mother "dropped by for a vist the other day," and the two Koopa women had a nice talk over some Koopa Tea. Kooper's mother was reportedly a little disappointed he was still on the road, and she was planning on cooking a delicious dinner when he got back. Kooper's father is never seen nor mentioned in the slightest.
Koopla is a character mentioned in Super Paper Mario. She is mentioned in two of the graffiti in the bathroom of Merlee's Mansion. She is loved by Laki and returns his love. She also loves Buzzo. She is most likely a Koopa.
Krusha's mother was briefly mentioned by Krusha in the Donkey Kong animated series episode "Cranky's Tickle Tonic." In the episode, Diddy Kong accidentally woke up the sleeping Krusha while trying to retrieve the Crystal Coconut. In this grogginess, Krusha asked his mother to let him sleep longer. Realizing that it was Diddy and not his mother who had woken him up, Krusha was shocked. Diddy put on a high voice and attempted to trick Krusha, who asserted that Diddy was not his mother. Krusha refers to his mother as "mommy."
The Legendary Pixl is a Pixl who is briefly mentioned by Heronicus during the events of Super Paper Mario. Little is known about this Pixl but what is known is that Heronicus spent a large portion of his life searching for it, he also mentions that he found it once but before he could get it from the cave it was in, he and his partner were caught up in a rock slide and Heronicus chose to save his partners life instead of the Pixl.
Leonardo DiAprio is a character that was briefly mentioned by Candy Kong in the Donkey Kong Country animated series episode, "Hooray for Holly-Kongo Bongo". Apparently, he was a famous actor, and Candy was often seen fantasizing about him (making Donkey Kong jealous in the process). His name is a pun on actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
Ludwig's barber was implied only in the website for New Super Mario Bros U in the bio for the Koopalings. He (or she) is completely unknown, except for the fact that Ludwig Von Koopa is one of their patients. The only excerpt mentioning Ludwig's barber is: 'plus some equally distracting fashion choices… Ludwig Von Koopa, just who is your barber!?' This reveals that Nintendo doesn't know who his barber is.
The Mailman was Mario and Luigi's mailman while they operated Mario Brothers Plumbing in Brooklyn. Mario mentioned him in passing in "Neatness Counts" after Luigi apologized to Nicole Eggert for dirtying her clothes, hair, and skin. Luigi said, "Oh, Nicole, I'm so sorry. This never, EVER happened before." Mario responded, "Oh, yeah? What about the time we drenched the mailman?"
Maitre Delish was a famous legendary chef. He made a cookbook, a book that could teach anyone how to be a perfect chef. (As a matter of fact, it is rumored that simply reading this book can instantaneously make one become a flawless cooker.) Not much is known about him, as he was only mentioned in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and not seen.
One of the copies of his book was left in Creepy Steeple by an unknown person thought to have once lived there; Mario later found this book. (The Creepy Steeple Boo also helped him find the book via email.) The book was not necessary to find in the overall plot of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, although Zess T. requested the book for her trouble, and, if Mario took the trouble on and completed it, she would reward him with a Honey Shroom and announce her newfound ability to cook two foods at once.
Wonky, found in Herb T.'s Place of Rogueport Sewers, makes another reference to the chef saying that he once ate food made by him in Poshley Heights, suggesting that he may have worked there in his lifetime. Maitre Delish is indeed thought to be dead, as Zess T. states that he existed "ages ago".
Marilyn's mother was mentioned by Marilyn in the "Wild Thing" episode of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!. The episode suggests that Marilyn, the niece of Mario and Luigi, is related to the Mario Bros. via her mother, meaning that Marilyn's mother would be Mario and Luigi's sister. However, it is possible that Marilyn's mother married into the Mario family, which would mean there is a third Mario brother.
Merlumina's sister is the little sister of Merlumina. She was mentioned by Garson at the Underwhere bar in Flipside in the game Super Paper Mario. He states that Merlumina's sister was given the purple Pure Heart, which she had to deliver to King Sammer I in Sammer's Kingdom. However, according to Garson, she fell in love with the king, leading to the two having 100 children, which could possibly be the origin of the 100 Sammer Guys.
Minister Crepe is the one who sent Luigi the letter about the Waffle Kingdom's troubles in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He is never actually seen in the game but he is talked about by Luigi and in his book series, Super Luigi.
He is also the one who transformed the Chestnut King into a monster and he was the final boss Luigi faced. He set the whole thing up so Luigi could collect the Compass Pieces so Crepe could rule the world. In the end, he was defeated by Luigi using his hammer after Princess Eclair's compass piece showed him Crepe's every move.
It is likely that Crepe was the one that Luigi was referring to. Since when describing how he defeated the Chestnut King (and obviously leaving out several details that were included in the book) he said "An even worse beast came next, a nightmare thing, but I defeated it too."
Names in Other Languages
Mitsy's Grandfather is mentioned by Mitsy in Super Paper Mario. When Mitsy's Grandmother tells Mitsy to spend her time with interesting people, Mitsy says that it is a good thing that "Grandfather" is so very interesting, after which her Grandmother suddenly starts stammering.
Moldy is the father of Toad, and the son of Gramps, who was briefly referenced by the two of them The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode "Escape from Koopatraz". As Moldy was only mentioned in passing by Toad and Gramps, there is no real information known about him.
Mold is a food-ruining fungus, regarded as harmful by most. As Toads in general are already based on fungi (in their case, mushrooms), the name Moldy is an obvious reference to this fungus (to be "moldy" is to be covered in mold).
Monkey Kong was an inhabitant of Kongo Bongo Island mentioned in "Message in a Bottle Show", an episode of the Donkey Kong Country cartoon. In this episode, Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong are fishing, when they pull a letter in a bottle out of the ocean. This letter is from the Federation of Future Rulers, who want Monkey Kong as their leader for a five-year term.
Mr. Shwect is a tenant living in same building that Mario Brothers Plumbing is located in. He lives in apartment 3A. Little is revealed about him, except that Luigi implied that he was crazy. He was only mentioned briefly during "The Great Hereafter".
Ms. Ingletoad was a female Toad who was mentioned in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. In the beginning cutscene of the game, a Toad comes home early for dinner. He claims the reason that he was early was that Ms. Ingletoad wouldn't stop blabbing. She's never mentioned after that.
The Noki King is a character briefly mentioned in Super Mario Sunshine by the Noki Elder in Noki Bay. The Noki King apparently ruled over Noki Bay an undisclosed time ago and his ancient tomb, housing multiple treasures, can be found there.
Old Man Skoo
Old Man Skoo was an elderly man briefly mentioned in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He was allegedly swallowed up by Hooktail. Mario hears this from a Koopa in the east most house in Petalburg: "I heard Hooktail recently lunched on Old Man Skoo two villages over." It was never established in the game whether this was confirmed, or a rumor.
Old McDonald is a famous farmer, best known through the song "Old McDonald Had a Farm". When Luigi develops Veggieitis in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! episode Flower Power, Mario calls Old McDonald's farm in hope that Old McDonald himself would be able to help them. However, when Young McDonald, the son of Old McDonald, arrives at Mario Brothers Plumbing instead, he explains that his father has gone to a tater convention and left him in charge of the farm.
Pengwen is Penguin's girlfriend mentioned in Mario Party Advance. In Shroom City's Ice Game Room, Penguin wants to propose to Pengwen, but could not afford a ring. He lost everything he had on the game Drop 'em; but with the help of either Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, or Yoshi, Penguin managed to get back his earnings and announced that he and Pengwen were finally able to get married. However, the game's epilogue stated that Penguin was still unable to afford a ring.
Despite the fact that the Pixl Queen was the first Pixl ever created, she seemed to stay largely quiet for what is thought to be 1,000 years after the creation of the Pixls 3,000 years before the setting of Super Paper Mario. However, seemingly long after the passing of her creator (the powerful magician who invented the process of Pixl-making), the Pixl Queen (then of an unknown name) finally rose into power, renaming herself with her only known name of "Pixl Queen." She then began to use her powers of mind control to manipulate all Pixls, causing them to eventually enslave most of the Tribe of Ancients (who were ironically once their masters) in her name. However, the owners of the magician's twelve original Pixl creations managed to somehow escape this Pixl Uprising and started to fight against the rebellious Pixls, containing them within Catch Cards and healing them. In the end, only one of these heroic Ancients survived, and he traveled with only his Pixl friends to the Pixl Queen's castle.
Once he arrived at the stronghold, he confronted the dark Pixl Queen herself, who immediately hid from the hero and shot a barrage of disturbing images to his mind telepathically. Although this greatly weakened the Ancient hero, one of his Pixls helped him through the tragedy and ended up defeating the Pixl Queen itself, although it was destroyed in the process of doing so. Afterwards, it was shockingly revealed to the hero who owned the Pixl that the Pixl Queen was the first created of the Pixls (perhaps created even earlier than the magician's so-called "original" twelve Pixls) and that the magician's motives for creating her involved the study of the Dark Prognosticus. The Ancient survivor, attempting to stop such a tragedy as the Pixl Uprising from ever happening again, then took the Dark Prognosticus with himself to unknown parts, likely founding the Tribe of Darkness known to once have possessed the dark book. Afterwards, the Pixl Queen's mutinous efforts led to the fall of the Tribe of Ancients and the outlawing of pixl creation.
Though these are the only known actions of the seemingly late Pixl Queen, more is indeed known about the Pixl herself. Although the spirit united with the Pixl vessel that formed the Pixl Queen had previously been described as "demonic", Carson later stated that a certain one of the Pixl-creating magician's books revealed that the Pixl Queen's spirit was actually derived from a human rather than a demon. It was on this principle that Carson theorized that the Pixl Queen's spirit may have been that of the magician's own daughter (who did indeed get a Game Over during her father's life due to a deathly illness), although he later seemed to have disproved this theory in his statement that Pixls' spirits cannot be derived from Game Overed people. It is also unknown if the Pixl Queen had any helpful ability, although she was indeed able to control all Pixls and used the power of telepathy in her battle against the Ancient survivor, making these possible ability candidates.
As Poopa La Koopa is only mentioned in passing by King Koopa, nothing is really known about him, though he seems to be as bad as King Koopa, being said to be a cheater and liar (his motto being "Cheat, beat an' be merry!").
Prince Croacus is a deceased (euphemistically referred to as "wilted") prince of the Floro Sapiens in Super Paper Mario. He was Queen Croacus the Second's sibling, and was going to inherit the throne. However, he suddenly wilted in the year 444, which not only caused his death, but that of his father as well. Queen Croacus the Second took the throne in his place.
Prince Skurvy is the great-great-great grandfather of Kaptain Skurvy. According to Kaptain Skurvy's father, Prince Skurvy was a fierce pirate who ruled the seven seas. He was said to have discovered the Crystal Coconut and, not knowing of its powers, hid it within Inka Dinka Doo. Many years later the eye of Inka Dinka Doo shed the Crystal Coconut as if it were a tear, only to be discovered by Donkey Kong at some point. Prince Skurvy may be based on Prince Henry the navigator.
Princess Daisy's father
Princess Daisy's Father has never appeared, but is mentioned once briefly in the Mario Party 3 story mode. As the player defeats Daisy for the ownership of the beauty stamp, she will run off while shouting, "Augh! I don't believe this! I've never lost--not even to my dad!". This mention of Daisy's father might reference him as the king of Sarasaland.
Princess Eclair was the damsel-in-distress that Luigi rescued from the clutches of the monstrous Chestnut King in the Waffle Kingdom. However, as it turns out, the Chestnut King was actually Princess Eclair's lover, who had been turned into a monster by the sinister Crepe. This story is told by Luigi when Mario talks to him throughout the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
During Luigi's adventure, he fell in love with Princess Eclair. However, after he discovered that the Chestnut King was Princess Eclair's fiancee, Luigi lost the hope of ever forming a romantic relationship with the princess. Since Luigi embellished his stories so much, it is unknown whether any of it really happened as he described (or whether she even exists at all.)
Names in Other Languages
Princess Peach's mother
Princess Peach's mother has yet to appear in person. She was referenced by Princess Peach in Super Mario Bros.: Peach-hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen. According to the princess, her mother had given her the Visionary Jewel from the Country of Treasure (possibly as a gift.) She also mentions that her mother had passed away prior to the events of the film. Her political position in Mushroom Kingdom government and her relationship with Peach's father, King Toadstool, are not explored.
Nothing is known about Professor Paint except his name. In the manual for Mario Paint, there are "Hints from Professor Paint", providing the player with information and tricks for the game.
Punderton is, supposedly, a Puni that the Puni Elder fell in love with back in her younger years, when she was 'beautiful,' as she states. She tells Mario about Punderton when he says 'I LOVE YOU!' as a talk selection when talking to the Puni Elder after saving her. The character is only mentioned in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
Quasimodo is the titular character of the novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame. While trying on a dress during the events of "Baby Mario Love", Luigi complained that the whole procedure made him feel like the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Queen Croacus II
Queen Croacus II (also known as "The White Maiden") was the queen of all Floro Sapiens (in Super Paper Mario). She was imprisoned by her father for disagreeing with his views, but after his overthrow, was set free and became queen. She was very popular, because she reduced taxes and studied diseases. She also wrote The Flictionarian, a prehistory of the Floro Sapiens. She was worried that if she had many children they would fight for the crown, so she only had one heir a year before she wilted. This having only one child to succeed her was what gave her the nickname "The White Maiden." She ruled from the Flora calendar's years 496 to 1298 (802 Flora years).
Rainbowzilla is an implied monster in Super Paper Mario. Flint Cragley fought it prior to the events of the game. From its name (a pun off of 'Rainbow' and 'Godzilla', a giant monster) it is implied that it is rainbow-colored and big. Hornfels and Monzo heard that tale 256 times, one of those times they were apparently tied up by an unseen and unnamed creature.
Ronnie is a crow mentioned by Flo when Mario and Vivian to eavesdrop on her conversation with her friend Maude in Twilight Town. Ronnie is Flo's oldest son and during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, he is studying for his SATs. If the players eavesdrop after the 5th Chapter, it is revealed that he did poorly on the SATs even though he studied a lot.
Rosalina's Family is mentioned by Rosalina herself during the events of Super Mario Galaxy while she reads the storybook. Rosalina said she remembered watching the stars with her father, and sliding down a hill with her brother. Her mother died before she found the Luma and left her world, and is buried under the tree outside the castle. In the storybook, Rosalina recounts a dream she had about her mother, in which she tells her daughter that she will always watch over her as a star. Her mother is shown to look like Rosalina, with long blonde hair and the same type and color of dress, although she also has matching round earrings, similar to the ones worn by Princess Peach.
Rotbeak is a crow that is mentioned in Twilight Town when Mario eavesdrops on the crows in the tree next to the first building. Not much is known about Rotbeak except that he lives in Mushroom Town and he just installed fiber optic on his home network. He is also a Member of the Feather Club for Crows.
In Paper Mario, partners would normally receive letters from relatives, friends or just people around the world. These letters could be read at Toad Town's Post Office. For every Chapter completed, new letters would arrive. One of the letters Sushie receives is from Sashimie, her daughter. In the letter, Sashimie states she's about to have a baby and that she hopes the best for her mother. Sashimie never appeared in the game, so her physical appearance, or even where she lives, is unknown.
“If I should succumb to this plague, and if my love should blame himself for my death... Then give this letter to him, so he may hear my voice.”
Scarlette is Admiral Bobbery's dead wife in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. She is never seen in the game. As the player learns from Podley, during one of Bobbery's sailing trips, she succumbed to a fatal illness. He didn't know if it was a cold or a virus, but it killed her. Bobbery had no clue of his wife's condition. By the time he returned, she was dead. Bobbery blamed himself for her death because he thought that if he had not been on a trip at the time, he could have nursed her to health. He resolved to never sail again, until Mario gave him a letter written by Scarlette that was held by Podley for many years who didn't have the heart to give him the letter, seeing his grief. He thought it best it be put behind him. In her last letter, she tells Bobbery not to blame himself for her death and to keep doing what he loves: sailing the seas. After reading the letter, Bobbery says, "Yes love... I WAS happy... My sweet, sweet Scarlette, I love you still."
The only other time she is ever mentioned is at the end of the game. When the Shadow Queen demanded for Mario and partners to become her servants, if Bobbery's the current partner, he says, "Serve a witch? Scarlette would be rather angry with me, I should think." When Mario leaves Rogueport, Bobbery will tell Mario that if he wouldn't have joined him and gone back to sea again, Scarlette would still watch down on a broken Bob-omb. When Goombella says Bobbery is now sailing the seven seas with Cortez, she says Scarlette's watching over him.
Scrawly Kaboodle is a barber whom Mario once mentioned in The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! live-action segment "Bats in the Basement". When Luigi mentioned that Count Zoltan Dracula had been going to night school for over 3 centuries, Mario stated that Scrawly Kaboodle had been going to high school for nearly as long. From this, it's strongly implied that Scrawly isn't very intelligent.
The Spore King is the villain of Toad Force V, a popular television program (with a Star Trek-like fanbase) mentioned in Mario Party Advance. Despite the fact that a surprisingly large amount of information is known about Toxic Toad Z, one of his henchmen, very little is known about this more major villain.
In all of Mario Party Advance, only one reference is made to the Spore King. This single reference is made when selecting the "Toxic Toad Z Figure." option at Junk during Lantern Ghost's Nerd Force V mission. When this option is selected, Paratroopa will proclaim the character a "hard-core fan" of Toad Force V and begin spilling out information regarding Toxic Toad Z; as he does this, he mentions the Spore King (who happens to own the robotic Toxic Toad Z) a few times. In these mentions, he describes how the Spore King, "outguns Toad Force V" (meaning that he overwhelms the group of protagonists with an amount of weapons surpassing theirs, suggesting he is the primary antagonist of the show) and how he ruthlessly plagiarized his minion's design from plans stolen from a laboratory.
Squirpina XIV is the queen of Squirpia, a kingdom that once flourished in the depths of Outer Space. Mentioned in Super Paper Mario, she does not appear in-game, as her kingdom has long since been forgotten, with only her young son alive to tell her tale.
1,500 years before the events of the game, Squirpina was visited by the Tribe of Ancients, who entrusted her with the Blue Pure Heart along with the knowledge of the calamity that would befall all worlds with the creation of the Chaos Heart in the future. Squirpina hid the Pure Heart deep within the Whoa Zone, an endless maze with a hidden entrance, and sealed her son, Squirps, inside a hibernation capsule, so that he could serve as the heroes' guide to the treasure when the time came. Squirps tells Mario and co. of his true nature as a prince and of his mother's fate as he stands beside her statue in the Whoa Zone, where he brings Squirpina's mission to an end by passing onto the heroes the fourth Pure Heart. Afterwards, he falls alseep near his mother's statue, telling her he'd done his best and wanting to know if she was proud of him.
Following the defeat of the final boss and the destruction of the Chaos Heart, Squirps can be found in the Whoa Zone, recounting how sad he was when his mother left him and promising to restore their kingdom to its former glory someday. Tattling the statue with Tippi suggests that, though she has long since passed, Squirpina continues to watch over her son.
Squirpina is referred to as Mommy by Squirps. Given she is heavily implied to be dead, it is possible that she is now a resident of The Overthere, though she is never definitively seen there. She is also depicted on the walls of the first 25 rooms of the Flopside Pit of 100 Trials, alongside the fourth Pure Heart and surrounded by multiple copies of Squirps.
Stuffy the 5th
Stuffy the 5th is the name of the never seen 5th king of the Dolphinian Empire from Wario: Master of Disguise. Not much is known about Stuffy's life prior to being king but what is known is that he served a short yet troubled reign and that an angry Statue was built in his honor.
Tanooki is a character mentioned in the Nintendo Comics System comic Tanooki Suits Me. Tanooki is mentioned by an old Toad when he sees Mario in a Tanooki Suit. The old Toad mentions that Tanooki was the first tailor of the Mushroom Kingdom and the creator of the Tanooki Suit, that Tanooki's trademark was to sew a tail on the back of each suit and that they give those who wear them magical powers, and that Tanooki was eventually forced out of business and that a genuine Tanooki is rare these days.
Timber's Parents left the little cub in charge of the Island in Diddy Kong Racing while they vacationed with the Kong clan. This was a bad idea, since the evil alien Wizpig took over the island after they left. They aren't even mentioned in the game at all. They're only read about in the player's manual for the game.
Tiptron Mk. II is the upgraded version of Tiptron, a partner of Mario in the game Super Paper Mario. After Mario purchases Tiptron, Francis states he is going to make Tiptron Mk. II. Francis then orders MeowMaids to bring him some Nibble-Ums to fill his stomach while he works. Tiptron Mk. II is never seen to be completed, but is assumed to be finished eventually.
Thermidor (also called Thermie) is the unseen pet lobster of Dixie Kong in the Donkey Kong Country animated series. In the episode "Klump's Lumps", Thermidor's one and only appearance, Dixie Kong lost him. Fortunately, Klump found him and gave him back to Dixie Kong, secretly between him and her.
The Toilet King
Toxic Toad Z is one of the handful of known characters from Toad Force V mentioned in Mario Party Advance. Toxic Toad Z is a Toad-based robotic villain in the series, and the henchman of Toad Force V's arch-nemesis, the Spore King.
When Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, or Yoshi accept Lantern Ghost's Nerd Force V challenge, they are directed to go to Junk, Paratroopa's item shop. On this specific mission, Junk is up and running with two items: A "Toad Force V" figurine (actually one of Jack) and a figure of Toxic Toad Z. While selecting the Toad Force V figurine is the correct action for this mission, it does not hurt to select the one of Toxic Toad Z; such an action will result in Paratroopa revealing much about the Toxic Toad Z character.
Like almost all (if not all) Toad Force V characters, not much is known about Toxic Toad Z. Paratroopa seems to know quite a bit about him, though, and, for an unseen character, there actually is a notably large amount of known information about him. According to him, Toxic Toad Z fights with lasers and giant missiles, and his design was stolen (by the Spore King) from the Toad lab. Also, it apparently takes a "hard-core fan" to buy a figurine of Toxic Toad Z, presumably because he's a villainous (and possibly minor) henchman; despite this statement, Junk was all out of his figures at the time the player attempted to buy one, although they were apparently expecting a new shipment of them to arrive soon. Indeed, the game's ending sequence state that Paratroopa made a fortune by selling Toxic Toad Z figures, indicating that the shipment did eventually arrive sometime during the course of Mario Party Advance.
Tubba Blubba's mother
Tubba Blubba's mother was a character briefly mentioned in Paper Mario by Tubba Blubba himself. After Yakkey yelled and woke Tubba Blubba up, he sat up groggily and said, "Whats going on? Just five more minutes, mom?" After that, she is never mentioned again.
Uncle Tony is an uncle of Mario and Luigi's who was briefly mentioned by Mario during the events of "Glasnuts". Little is known about him, except that he is a big eater. As Mario and Luigi were discussing how to divide a pizza evenly, Mario brought up the concern that if Uncle Tony showed up he would eat more than his fair share, thus forcing them to order more pizza.
Uncle Troy is an uncle of Marilyn's, who lives somewhere in California. After she and her friends partied at Mario Brothers Plumbing during the events of "Wild Thing", she announced that they would be moving the party to a beach in California, and that they would be staying with her Uncle Troy.
Although Marilyn herself is a niece of Mario and Luigi's, Uncle Troy's relation to Mario and Luigi, if any, is unclear. It could be implied that Uncle Troy is a a member of the family of Marylin's parents, meaning it could be possible he is not a blood relative of Mario nor Luigi.
Unpaid Snifit Interns
The Unpaid Snifit Interns are several Snifits seen in some parts of Snifit or Whiffit in the game Paper Mario: Sticker Star. They are seen in Big Bonking Snift Bash and Big-Bonking-Panic-Pick-And-Choose Snifit-Bash where they come out of holes in the ground. Mario must use his Hammer on them before they "scurry back into the underwhelming intern lounge" either 5 or 20 times, depending on which game it is.
Van Helsing is a fictitious vampire hunter from the novel Dracula. In the Club Nintendo comic Super Mario in Die Nacht des Grauens, Kirby stumbles across a chest with Van Helsing's name engraved, which turns out to be his legacy, containing lots of magical weapons and clothing. Kirby, Mario, and Link use these weapons to defeat Abigor and his demonic fellows.
Wario's mother is Wario's supposed mother briefly mentioned during the events of Mario Power Tennis. Although never actually seen in the game, during the blooper reel of Wario lifting weights, she called him on his cell phone. He then replied "Hello? Ma, I told you not to call me here! Can I maybe..."
Wario's mother was also heard of in Wario's Warehouse in the website of Nintendo of Europe. It is revealed she used to say "You can never have enough cash." Wario later wedged her inside her kitchen bin and pilfered all her money.
The Watchoverer is a deity revered by the Nommons of Pi'illo Island in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. When Starlow assumed the Nommons revered the petrified Pi'illos as deities, they corrected her by stating that they actually revere the Watchoverer and that the petrified Pi'illos are just their playthings.
Watt's Mother was mentioned multiple times in Paper Mario. She often tells Mario about her. Additionally, she sends her daughter a letter, which the player can read when visiting the Toad Town Post Office. Her name is unknown. However, Watt's Pause Menu description reads: "The child of Li'l Sparky", which might mean her name is Li'l Sparky. However, this probably refers to her species rather than her name.
Zeus is the ruler of the Greek pantheon, as well as the god of the sky and thunder. The first Olympic Games were held in his honor, as revealed to Mario by a Hint Block in Mario's Time Machine. A tourist that Luigi spoke with in Athens in Mario is Missing! professed a desire to party with Zeus, wondering if he was in his home on Mount Olympus. According to its description, the Homework-O-Matic from Wario: Master of Disguise has a design flaw that causes it to insert the phrase "by the great beard of mighty Zeus!" into essay questions.
Aside from these direct references, there have also been indirect references to Zeus in the Mario series. Two enemies from the Yoshi series have been named "Zeus Guy". Additionally, King Grambi from Super Paper Mario seems to be based on Zeus, though he may also have been based on the Christian God, or have been intended to share elements of both.
