Paper Mario description Makes the action command work more frequently.

Dodge Master is a Badge in Paper Mario. It can be bought from Rowf's Badge Shop after Chapter 2 for 100 coins. If Mario equips this Badge, all action commands that involve dodging enemy attacks are much easier to time correctly. This also makes some attack action commands slightly more forgiving. It also increases the cap of jumps that the Power Bounce has. This does not affect action commands involving the partners' attacks. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the Simplifier badge serves a similar purpose, except that the player will receive less Star Power when it is equipped. Also in that game is the Unsimplifier badge, which does the opposite.
