Embers are entities made entirely of flame, much like Lava Bubbles – the only differences being its blue color, HP, and attack power. Embers appear in Paper Mario on Star Way, and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door in Pirate's Grotto. In Paper Mario, Embers can attack Mario by jumping on him or they can attack Mario's partner to cost them a few turns unless they block the attack. Also, using a fire attack against against an Ember makes it heal, and sometimes split into more Embers. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Embers are prominently featured in Chapter 5, where Cortez has an army of them that attacks Flavio's ship, and later Lord Crump's ship. Their initial appearance in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, as well as their Japanese and French names, allude to the St. Elmo's fire phenomenon, as the Embers appear on the S.S. Flavion under similar weather conditions. After Chapter 5, the only Embers that can still be viewed and battled remain in Pirate's Grotto. Embers are most likely based on the hitodama, an entity in Japanese folklore said to be the comprised of the souls of the dead.
