- “Dodgy! Some attacks will automatically be dodged!”
- —Battle text, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
Dodgy is a positive status effect only found in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Mario, his partners, and his enemies can all receive this status effect. Appropriately enough, this status is indicated by a Repel Cape icon, and by the affected character's image periodically wobbling and distorting itself. A Repel Cape item or Flurrie's Dodgy Fog ability can be used to get this status. When active, the recipient has a dodge rate of 50%. Some bosses such as Macho Grubba and Sir Grodus can use magic to power themselves up with the dodgy status. Magikoopas can use this ability too.
Related to the dodgy effect is the random stage mist, which applies the same effect to all participants in battle. If Mario is actively dodgy while mist is on the stage, 75% of attacks will miss him.
