“You got it! I'm ornery as all get out! Prepare for some pain!”
Fuzzipede, Paper Mario

Fuzzipede is a character who only appears in Paper Mario. Fuzzipede is a Fuzzy-like caterpillar that hangs out in front of the Toad Town docks as bait with his pal, Fishmael.

After Mario defeats General Guy and his Shy Guys in Shy Guy's Toy Box during the events at the end of Chapter 4, Mario comes back to Toad Town as usual and decides to go to the docks to get to Lavalava Island to get the fifth Star Spirit, Misstar. When Mario sees a Whale having a belly-ache, the Whale begs Mario to check its stomach. After that, the Whale opens up its mouth and Mario makes his way into its belly. Inside, Mario sends Watt out to light up the darkness, and Fuzzipede is revealed hanging from the ceiling. Fuzzipede starts to jump around the Whale's belly, but Mario engaged him in battle.

During the fight, only Watt can be used at is too dark to attack when using any of Mario's other partners. This means that he cannot be tattled by Goombario during the battle, although he can be field tattled at other points in time. After Mario defeats Fuzzipede, he explains that he got eaten by the whale while trying to get away from Fishmael. By then, the Whale says that he is actually feeling good now that Fuzzipede is off his stomach wall. Then water starts to fill up the Whale's Belly, popping Mario, his partners and Fuzzipede out through his blow-hole. Fuzzipede forgives the whale after getting out of the belly as he goes away.

Later in the game, he writes to Watt a letter, which the player can read at the Post Office in Toad Town. In the letter, he thanks Watt and his buddies (Mario) for saving him from the whale's belly, and says that he doesn't want to be bothered anymore.
