Boodin, Super Paper Mario

Boodin is a resident of Flopside in Super Paper Mario. Like his Flipside-counterpart Hoodin, Boodin owns a Catch Card store known as Fondest Hopes. He is found always in his shop, selling Caught Cards and Catch Card SPs to Mario, Princess Peach, Bowser, and Luigi.

He seems very fond of card games with his customers, as stated by Tippi: "He likes to hang out with the weekend adult customers. He likes to play cards more then he collects them.", contrasting with Hoodin whose customers are said to primarily be after-school students. Compared to the somewhat theatrical speech of his Flipsider counterpart, Boodin has an overall more nonchalant demeanor when introducing and presenting his products, being a friendly shopkeeper who maintains a more relaxed and quiet attitude and love of cards.
