Chuckola Cola is a beverage owned by Admiral Bobbery.


In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Admiral Bobbery wants a drink as his last request. When Mario asks Flavio about it, Flavio agrees to give it to Mario, but only if he could give him something in return. Mario gives Flavio a coconut and then gives the drink to Bobbery. Bobbery then joins Mario in his quest.

Said drink, a red wine named "Vintage Red" in the Japanese version, was changed to a purple drink that was named differently in the various international localizations, being given the name "Chuckola Cola" in the English one. As a result of them not being related except in the English localization, there are some appearance inconsistencies with Chuckola Cola between Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The Chuckola Cola is bottled similarly in both games, but it is colored differently: the Mario & Luigi variant is blue (but known to be red when seen en masse) and has a pink label while the Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door cola is purple with a yellow label. Furthermore, as a result of the changes during localization, Bobbery's last wish is much more poignant in the Japanese version: scarlet wine in memory of Scarlette. This is retained in the Spanish version, where Bobbery asks for "bombioja" in honor of "Bombaret,"[1] while the changes in the nature of the drink partially affected the Italian version, where Bobbery asks for "Vintage viola" (violet Vintage), a fine berry juice, in memory of "Scarlet."[2]
