“I'm traveling on business, so everything goes on the expense account! Yes!”
The Businessman is a Ratooey found in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He first appears in the Excess Express, happy that he can charge everything to his business account, as he is riding the train for business reasons. Comically, he appears to abuse this privilege. On the voyage's second day, he lost his briefcase, which contained early plans for his company's latest invention, Nitro Honey Syrup. He gets it back when Mario finds Zip Toad and exposes him as a fake (although his true identity, Doopliss, isn't actually revealed until after the Businessman gets his suitcase back).
For unknown reasons, the Businessman has a love of chairs that border on outright fanaticism. In fact, his Trouble consists of Mario needing to tell him how many chairs are in certain houses spread out across the world, such as Don Pianta's office and Flurrie's House. The reason for this is because he forgot the security code needed to open his briefcase and the code consists of the numbers of chairs in four houses.
In the "Rogueport Today" section of "RDM Issue 6", which Mario can read using his Mailbox SP, it is stated that the Businessman was taken into custody by port authorities for trying to board the Cheep-Cheep Blimp with large quantities of Hot Sauce (the report refers to it as a "volatile red liquid" and a "spicy condiment"). After being released, the Businessman advertised his company's product with the statement: "Buy our new Hot Sauce, folks!"
