Flurrie, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Madame Flurrie, commonly known as simply Flurrie, is Mario's third party member in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. She is a wind spirit[1], as well as a slightly pompous retired actress who eventually resumes her career at the end of the game. Her face resembles Wendy O. Koopa, while her hair resembles Ludwig von Koopa's hair. Her ability is to blow out large amounts of wind, as hinted at by her name, which comes from "flurry", meaning a small burst of wind. In the overworld, she can blow wind which makes incoming enemies dizzy and blows away flaps in the enviroment, in order to reveal hidden objects or passageways, similar to Watt from Paper Mario and Fleep in Super Paper Mario. Since she is not on the ground, she is unaffected by quake attacks like the Earth Quake item.

History[edit]

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door[edit]

Prior to meeting Mario, Flurrie was a famous actress. She was very well-known with fans all over the world, and starred in plays such as "A Mid-Winter Day's Nap"[2]. Weary of the spotlight, she retired to a house in Boggly Woods, where she became a friend of the local Punies.

When Mario, Goombella, Koops and Punio go to the Great Tree, they find that the door is locked. Punio recalls a secret entrance somewhere around a low branch of the tree, but it is covered by an "invisible thing", and he doesn't know how to remove it or even exactly where it is. He suggests that Mario should go to Flurrie's house and ask her to help them find it.

When they go to Flurrie's house, she tells them that she cannot be seen without her Necklace and asks Mario to get it back for her. They return to the first area of the woods and find the Shadow Sirens with the necklace. Mario defeats them and gets the necklace back for Flurrie, who insists she must repay Mario and gives a very large kiss which knocks away his current party member and Punio. She then joins the party.

At the very end of the adventure, Flurrie becomes a top-class actress once more, now alongside Doopliss. Flurrie creates a play aptly titled "Paper Mario" about the past events in the game. Flurrie plays herself, Doopliss plays Mario, and the rest of the cast are themselves.

Super Paper Mario[edit]

In Super Paper Mario, Flurrie appears as a Catch Card won by winning the Duel of 100 in the Sammer's Kingdom. Her Catch Card describes her as the most "Rubenesque" of Mario's companions, referencing the Baroque artist Peter Paul Rubens, famous for his paintings of large, voluptuous women.

Flurrie could also be seen very briefly at the beginning of the game. During the intro, she, and all the other partners from the previous Paper Mario titles can been seen in a photograph.
