65th Super Fun Quirk Quiz
Mario and Goombella being challenged in the 65th Trivia Quiz-Off

The 65th Trivia Quiz-Off, originally known as the 65th Super Fun Quirk Quiz, is a quiz that appears in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door along with its Switch remake. It is hosted at Petal Meadows, where the gate to the Shhwonk Fortress is. Mario triggers this quiz by pressing A Button when near the Thwomp, and when he does, the Thwomp will open its eyes and start the quiz. If Mario answers three questions wrong, he must fight four Clefts, but if he correctly answers five questions, the Thwomp will then begrudgingly allow Mario to pass without triggering a battle. It succeeds the 64th Trivia Quiz-Off from Paper Mario, and precedes the 66th Trivia Quiz-Off held in X-Naut Fortress.

Trivia[edit]

  • The "Race in a Kart" answer is a reference to the Mario Kart series.
  • The "Super Question 64" answer is a reference to Super Mario 64.
  • In the Japanese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish versions, the first question has "Luigi's underwear" as the fourth option.
  • In the Japanese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish versions, as well as the English version of the remake, the second question is how much a Mushroom and Fire Flower cost total at the shop in Petal Meadows instead of a Mr. Softener and Fire Flower. The answer is 12 coins. However, in the English Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door demo in GameCube Demo Disc Version 18, this question asked for the price of a Mushroom and a Fire Flower like in the other versions.
    • Additionally, the Official Nintendo Player's Guide states on page 29 that the second question asks how much a Mushroom and Fire Flower cost total which is only true for non-English versions of the game.
  • In the GameCube version of the game, the references to Koopa Koot and Toad Town were mistranslated as "Kooskoos" and "Mushville", respectively. The Switch remake restores both.
