Host Snifit, Paper Mario: Color Splash

Host Snifit, more commonly and informally known as Snifit, is a recurring character in the Paper Mario series. He is a particular Snifit with a distinctive pink bow tie. In Paper Mario: Sticker Star, he hosts Snifit or Whiffit down in Stump Glade to an audience of Snifits. He returns to reprise this role in Paper Mario: Color Splash for the revamped edition in Cobalt Base. As Snifit or Whiffit does not return in Paper Mario: The Origami King, being replaced by Shy Guys Finish Last, Emcee Shy Guy fulfills his role. However, Host Snifit does have a set of incomplete graphics in the game's data.

History[edit]

Paper Mario: Sticker Star[edit]

The original logo, featuring Snifit's image.

The host makes his debut in Paper Mario: Sticker Star with his signature role. He awaits Mario and Kersti down in Stump Glade. They are both surprised by the prospect of participating in a game show and accept Snifit's offer to compete. He enters in a platform attached to a long pole, which appears to be his method of advancing down floors. He has the classic persona of a game show host, boasting every challenge while questioning Mario's ability, as well as disregarding his interns. For each of the main challenges, he explains the concept and goal. As Mario advances through the challenges, Snifit becomes more impressed, giving him the prize in the end.

Secretly, in storage, Snifit offers Mario a chance to compete in the bonus round for a special prize. This time, Mario is able to accept or decline, though participating and clearing the bonus challenge scores him the prize. Due to the ability he has shown, Snifit insists Mario is part Snifit.

Snifit's likeness is included in the logo for Snifit or Whiffit.

Two of the questions asked during the true/false portion of the quiz involve the host. One of them claims the host's name is Snifit, which is true. The other claims his dinner the previous night was a delicious mushroom steak - this is also true.

Paper Mario: Color Splash[edit]

The new logo, also featuring Snifit.

The host makes a return in Paper Mario: Color Splash, as does Snifit or Whiffit, with new challenges and gimmicks. Due to the setup being a bit different, the host must explain the rules and goals for each challenge. He appears to recognize Mario from his last appearance as a contestant on the show. He congratulates Mario each time he passes a round before quickly moving on to the next round.

After Mario has cleared four rounds, he becomes qualified for the standard prize, and is asked if he wants to bail out. If Mario clears the bonus challenges, Snifit deems him a champion before signing off.

If Mario does not complete a round, a massive Urchin appears over his bubble, threatening to pop it and cause a Game Over if this continues. The host jokes it will wipe out his save file for good before assuring him it will merely require him to continue from his last save point, as is traditional.

If Mario is running low on paint, the host takes note of this, and offers to refill his counter for 100 coins.

Both the logo and backdrop for the game show now feature Snifit.

The Letter from Chest, found on Fortune Island, is written by the directors of Snifit or Whiffit, presumably including Host Snifit, who states the contents of the chest are being used for the grand prize for their show.

  • "And it appears that Mario here has purchased the Bonus Set from one of our... sponsors. That means we're headed straight to the bonus round! Answer all three questions correctly, and you'll walk out of here with a legendary prize! But one wrong answer and it's game over!"
  • "So are you ready to play?"
  • "Oh...OK. Well, that's disappointing. This audience has been waiting in the dark for hours, but whatever. You can go home now, I guess."
  • "Hm... Looks like you don't have enough cards. You need at least 21 cards for this quiz. Maybe you should've listened to that Blue Snifit at the entrance..."
  • "All righty. Please make your way to the contestant area!"
  • "Now let's get started!"
  • "Round [number]!"

  • "Congratulations! That's four right answers in a row with no misses! You've already secured your prize, but keep going and try to get every question right for a shot at that legendary prize!"
  • "Well, that's a crying shame. Next time try to make it to the bonus round for a chance at the legendary prize! I guess becoming our newest champion—and, you know, not dying—will have to suffice for now."
  • "Congratulations! You've won four rounds and have secured your prize! Now, you didn't complete a perfect game today, but there's always next time. Come back on the show, complete a perfect game, and secure your place in Snifit or Whiffit history. You'll win a sweet prize, too!"
  • "What a shame! You didn't manage to win every round, but you got at least four right, making you our newest Snifit or Whiffit champion!

Get all three questions correct, and you'll receive an extravagant legendary prize you can't find anywhere else! But get even one wrong, and it's an instant game over and your save file will be erased forever! Just kidding! But seriously, if you get one wrong, it'll be game over and you won't get credit for clearing the other rounds. You in?"
  • "Of course you are! Here we go!"
  • "You're running low on paint. Want to buy some for 100 coins?"

  • "Hmm... You don't have enough coins! What a terrible shame!"
  • "Oooh. That's a shame."
  • "You see, Mario, you're not just playing for the enjoyment of our studio audience and millions around the world... You're playing for your life. Looming above you is a bona fide, spike-covered Urchin. Every time you lose a round, the Urchin's razor-sharp spikes inch a bit closer to that bubble you're in. Sorry about that... It really helps our ratings!"
  • "Ooooh... You whiffed it. Well, good-bye, Mario!"
  • "You still want to continue, don't you?"
  • "Oooh, Mario. Unfortunately you've now failed three rounds. If you get the next one wrong, our Urchin friend here might get a little too close for comfort, and it'll be game over. Do you want to keep going?"
  • "Oooh, Mario. Unfortunately you've now failed three rounds. Perhaps you should've prepared a little better. If only there was someone willing to sell you all the cards you needed before playing! If you get the next one wrong, our Urchin friend here may get a bit too close for comfort, and it'll be lights out. Do you want to keep going?"
  • "What a champ! Our next round is..."
  • "You got it, big man! Good luck!"
  • "If you forfeit the game, you're signing your own game-over warrant. You sure about that, slugger?"
  • "Welp... Good-bye!"
  • "Mario, you passed on that round, which will count as a wrong answer."
  • "Mario, you passed on that round, which will count as a wrong answer. Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's four failures, meaning you are NOT our newest Snifit or Whiffit champion. Take it away, Urchy!"
  • "Bonus Round - Part [number]!"
  • "Falling Cards 2!"
  • "We're going to show you three cards. Try to identify all three! Good luck!"

  • "Great work. Let's keep it going!"
  • "This is it, folks! The final question of the bonus round!"
  • "Incredible! You cleared the bonus round! Congratulations, Mario! You are our newest Snifit or Whiffit champion! Now go and claim your legendary prize!"
