Cudge is a Pixl in the game Super Paper Mario. He is the eighth Pixl found in the game. His name is a pun on "cudgel", which refers to a blunt weapon, such as a Hammer, which Cudge is used as, replacing actual Hammers featured in past Paper Mario games. Cudge can be used to destroy both easily seen or camouflaged Yellow Blocks. He notes that he was not always a Pixl, meaning that Pixls might not be an actual species, but just transformed beings. (Indeed, Carson reveals in one of his many stories that Pixls are created through putting the spirit of an unknown entity into a man-made vessel designed for a certain purpose.) This Catch Card description may be referring to this when it says "he's a real people Pixl", or it may be referring to him having good social abilities.
Cudge is found in Gap of Crag after the heroes insert the Elemental Tablets into the pillars. Before he joins the team, he asks the player what his or her favorite word is, which he will then fly up and scream out loud before joining the team. The word must be eight letters long or Cudge won't like the word. His powers are needed to destroy the block obstructing the pipe leading to the Floro Caverns.
