Charlieton, the merchant
First appearance Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

Charlieton is a traveling salesman encountered in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He appears to have a knack for ripping people off, much like Rip Cheato; his name is even a pun on "charlatan".

He sells items and Badges in the Rogueport Plaza. Most of his items and Badges are fairly rare, and he is the only way for Mario to complete his Badge collection. His prices are also high, but Jammin' Jellies and Ultra Shrooms are sold at 120 coins each, their cheapest price in the game. Charlieton's inventory will change if Mario leaves Rogueport and then comes back. Therefore, all items that he sells can theoretically be obtained at any given point after Chapter 1, meaning that while certain items may not appear for a while, they may eventually reappear.

If Mario buys all the things available, he will thank Mario for putting his kids through college.

Charlieton also has a chance to appear on every tenth floor except the 100th in the Pit of 100 Trials, selling common items such as Mushrooms at an inflated price. The prices are higher the deeper Mario is in the Pit.

Charlieton's role is filled by Flimm in the next Paper Mario game, Super Paper Mario.

  • "That guy's Charlieton. He's a salesman from way far away. His prices are steep, but he's normally got rare items and pretty unusual badges. He might even have a few completely unique items that he dug up somewhere..."
Pit of 100 Trials
  • "That's Charlieton, the merchant. I guess he sells his wares here, too. But... it looks like his stuff gets more expensive the deeper he is in the pit. I'm happy to be able to shop here and all, but sheesh... Well, it's your money."
