Full name Vanna T.
Species Toad
First appearance Paper Mario (2000)

Vanna T. is Chuck Quizmo's assistant in the game Paper Mario. She is a Toad who has hearts on her cap instead of round spots and blonde hair. During Chuck Quizmo's quiz shows, she can be seen standing next to Chuck Quizmo, in the right of the screen. Whenever Mario answers one of Chuck's quiz questions correctly, she claps her hands.

After Mario answers the first quiz question correctly, Vanna sends Mario a letter. In the letter, she writes to Mario this:

Hello Mario.
I'm Vanna T., Chuck Quizmo's lovely assistant.

Thanks for participating in our quiz show.
Our ratings are through the roof!
Are those Star Pieces helping you?

Please keep coming back until you answer the last question!
I'll cheer you on!

Vanna T.

At the end of the game, while Mario is on his way to Princess Peach's party, Vanna T. makes an appearance with Chuck Quizmo near the dojo. If Mario speaks to her, the only reply he will get is a smile and "♡". Vanna T. also takes part in the ending parade.

Trivia[edit]

  • Vanna T.'s name is a pun on the philosophical term "vanity". It is also a reference to Vanna White, the assistant to Pat Sajak on the real-world game show Wheel of Fortune.
  • Vanna T.'s Japanese name has caused a mistranslation in the German version of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, where Toadette was incorrectly called T. Tanja just like Vanna T. This is because they share the same Japanese name.
