The Three Hags, from left to right: Hagnes, Hagra and Hagitha.

The Three Hags are characters from Super Paper Mario, that are found in the Underwhere Road behind a couple pink doors with a heart on each of them. Their names are Hagra, Hagitha and Hagnes. They are based on the three Moirae, or the Fates, in Greek mythology. They all have a favor to ask the player, but only Hagra's is required; the other two are optional.

Favors[edit]

  • Hagra will ask the player to get her diet book from a D-Man and sends the player to him, as the player earns a reward, it will be the door key.
  • Hagitha will send the player on a similar quest. She sends the player to ask a D-man to record a show for her. She will also tell the player a strategy to defeating the Underchomp: it falls asleep when playing music near it (which is a hint that the player should use Piccolo the Pixl).
  • Hagnes' request is to listen to her talk for a while. She will tell the player a long-winded love story from her past (similar to Merlumina, though Mario doesn't fall asleep), revealing that as a youth, she competed with a rival for Grambi's affections, only to lose him to the other woman, Jaydes. The reward is a thank you.

Complaints[edit]

Each of the hags, if the player refuses the favor, will give a long, ranting speech railing against the younger generation. Hagra and Hagitha's speeches are identical until they get to what they blame; Hagra blames video games, claiming that simulated worlds drain away a person's ability to relate to real people, while Hagitha blames cellular phones, reasoning that being able to chat long-distance makes one uncomfortable with talking face to face. Hagnes, however, takes a comical turn when she realizes that when she was a young person, she was just as bad, giving her elders 'nothing but grief'.
