Cloud Nine is a move mastered by Lakilester upon reaching Super Rank in Paper Mario. At the cost of 4 FP, Lakilester will create a cloud around Mario which boosts his evasion rate to 50/101. However, this will overwrite the evasion given by other badges, and they will not provide any effect while Cloud Nine is active.

Cloud Nine's duration will depend on how well the Action Command is performed: the player must press A Button as the red stars light up, and each successful input will add a turn to the cloud, up to a maximum of 4 turns in total. Reapplying the move while it is in effect will not extend its counter, but simply reset it.

Cloud Nine's name comes from the idiom "cloud nine", meaning "a state of great happiness or dreaminess".
