“My name is Boddle... Younger brother of the legendary soda maker. As you can see, I'm rich enough to own my own theater. I also happen to be president of the Yoshi Fan Club.”
Boddle, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Boddle is a Beanish character that appears in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. He is the curator of the Yoshi Theater and considers himself to be the biggest fan of the Yoshi species; he is the founder and the president of the Yoshi Fan Club, and even wears a large Yoshi Egg-like costume.

History[edit]

After the Beanstar splits into four pieces during the events at Woohoo Hooniversity, Mario and Luigi are tasked with finding all the Beanstar pieces along with Prince Peasley. One of the Beanstar pieces lands in the Yoshi Theater. Boddle is first seen placing the Beanstar Piece on the theater's entrance sign.

When Mario and Luigi come to ask about the Beanstar piece, Boddle's assistant immediately marks them for swindlers and tries to shoo them off. As he then begs Boddle to ignore the Bros., Boddle responds by withdrawing into his costume (which pulls up a Yoshi's Island-style targeting cursor) and hitting his assistant for his impudence. As he apologizes for the assistant's rudeness, the Mario Bros. seem to recognize him and freak out, explaining to the confused Boddle that he looks Bubbles. Boddle reveals that he is in fact Boddle's younger brother, displaying a similarly eccentric tendency toward pirouetting, before introducing himself as the owner of the Yoshi Theater and founder/president of the Yoshi Fan Club.

When the Mario Bros. explain that they must have the Beanstar Piece being used on the theater's sign, Boddle considers the matter for a few moments before agreeing to do so, with his assitant's protests causing Boddle to hit him again. He then proposes a trade for something else that would fit as the decoration of his theater's grand sign. When his assistant mentions the Neon Eggs, Boddle states he will accept them in exchange for the Beanstar piece, and then hits his assistant yet again when he claims that the Mario Bros. could never retrieve them.

Boddle say that seven hungry Yoshis are inside the theater, and Yoshis only produce Neon Eggs when fed a particular kind of food, with the egg meaning that their stomach is filled. As Boddle's assistant then fawns over his generosity, Boddle directs them to someone within the theater who is an expert on Neon Eggs and the food that produces it. Once given the seven Neon Eggs, Boddle places them on the sign and praises their efforts. He then rewards the Mario Bros. with the Beanstar piece, and then leaves with his assistant to prepare for the grand opening of his now-complete theater.
