Jojora is a mysterious fairy-like girl who lives in Joke's End during the events of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. She claims to be there because her friend's cousin's ancestor was the person who owned it originally, which she explains to the brothers when they meet her at the gates. Mario and Luigi have to fight her and one of her friends during a chaotic tea party. She seems to take delight in toying with the brothers while in the palace.
After making it through the entire palace, the brothers find Jojora in her room, where she asks them to sit down. She tells them that she admires their perseverance, and soon asks which of four "friends" they would like to meet for tea. After the brothers select one, the chosen friend falls down from the ceiling and fights alongside Jojora against the brothers. However, the friend will always have the same stats and appearance no matter what the player chooses.
Jojora has the highest defense in the whole game, and most attacks will only do one HP of damage at this point. Despite her high defense, however, Jojora can indeed be defeated, though it is not necessary in order to finish the fight.
Offensively, she can wave her wand at them, causing them to freeze; if a hammer strike is executed when she approaches a brother, he can counter the attack and knock her wand out of her hands, causing her to run away crying "Eeek! Uncool, you creep!" while she leaves the battle to retrieve it. After a few turns, she will find her wand and return to battle. Additionally, whenever a brother damages her friend while she is still on-screen, she exclaims "You NEVER touch a lady without her permission!" and begins a snowstorm that can freeze both of the brothers (but which can be avoided by rapidly jumping) and recovers the HP of both her and her friend; if Jojora is attacked directly, no side effects occur. Because of this, the brothers will have to time their attacks so the friend is only damaged while Jojora is off getting her wand and unable to begin a snowstorm.
After Jojora's friend is defeated, she melts away, causing Jojora to flee, disappointed, briefly returning to angrily call the brothers "jerks" before leaving again. She is not seen again for the rest of the game.
In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, her role is largely the same as in the original. While she no longer has an overwhelming defense stat nor level in-battle, she has ten times her original HP as a trade-off and also drops the Revenge Jeans when defeated.
