The Battle Master is a Toad who appears in the Nintendo Switch remake of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He wears a purple tangzhuang coat and guapi mao cap. He introduces himself after Professor Frankly instructs Mario and Goombella to go to Petal Meadows, and can be found in various locations throughout the world afterwards.

When Mario talks to the Battle Master, he is given two choices. One is to go into a practice battle against three Goomboards, indestructible enemies that deal no damage, similar to the Action Command Dojo and Battle Lab from previous Paper Mario games. Mario can either take turns practicing his attacks with no FP or SP cost, or have the Battle Master jump at him holding a Goomboard to practice his guards. This battle also has a unique theme, titled "Master of Action Commands," which is composed with Chinese instruments. The other option is to read various tips for battles, including explanations for the stage and action commands.[1]


  • "Hey, kiddo. You need somethin' from the ol' Battle Master?"


  • "That's the Battle Master. He's a master of battling. Let me know if I'm going too fast here. He'll teach you the secrets of battling and help you practice tricky Action Commands. So if you're having trouble mastering any aspects of battles, just ask the Battle Master! I mean, obviously."
