Ian Foomus, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (Nintendo Switch)

Ian Foomus is a Little Mouser who appears in the Nintendo Switch remake of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He appears in the Trouble Center, offering advice to help with different troubles. He wears a gray cap, holds a book, and has a pencil tucked behind his ear. As Goombella's Tattle indicates, his name is a pun on "infamous" and "info mouse".[1]


  • "That's Ian Foomus, the infamous info mouse. He gathers intel about folks in trouble...instead of helping them. If you're stuck on a request from the Trouble Center, this smug li'l sleuth probably has the info you need. Buuut that info comes at a price, so only ask him if you're really stuck. Know-it-alls... Such a pain, am I right?"
