Species Buzzy Beetle
First appearance Paper Mario (2000)
“Above us, on the top floor, there is a Dojo. We are here! Always! Training at the Dojo! Unless our Master isn't here, in which case the Dojo's closed. A letter just arrived saying The Master will return soon. We will train again soon!”
Chan, Paper Mario

Chan is a student at the Toad Town Dojo and, along with Lee, a disciple of the Master in Paper Mario. He is a Buzzy Beetle with a green shell and the easiest dojo resident to defeat. Chan can be fought only after Mario visits Eldstar on Shooting Star Summit. Chan's name is a reference to the martial artist turned movie star Jackie Chan. According to Goombario, Chan has deep admiration for the Master.

Since he is a Buzzy Beetle, Chan has a high defense rating and cannot be hurt by fire attacks or explosions. However, he can be flipped over by jump attacks. Once Chan is flipped over, he is vulnerable and cannot attack. Thus, it is possible for Mario to keep flipping Chan over, preventing him from attacking. When Mario defeats him, he earns the First-Degree Card. If Mario loses all of his HP during his battle with Chan, he does not get a Game Over; instead, he is sent back to the field with only 1 HP remaining.

Tattle This is Chan, of the Dojo. He's training under The Master and is happy to fight us. Max HP: 15, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 2 Hammer attacks don't work well, but you can turn him over with Jump attacks. Once he's flipped over, he's easy. No mercy, Mario!

Field Tattle[edit]

  • "That's Chan. He's one of the trainees who seem to always be at the Dojo. He worships The Master. I mean, it's all well and good for Chan to admire The Master, but I prefer Mario!"
