Lady Lima is the Beanbean Kingdom's Goodwill Ambassador in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Lady Lima is knowledgeable on the Beanstar and acts as an adviser for Queen Bean. She, along with the other inhabitants of Beanbean Castle, were imprisoned by Cackletta and Fawful so that they could trick Mario and Luigi into giving them the Beanstar. Mario and Luigi come across the real Lady Lima in the sewers and are instructed by her to return to the Beanstar before it gets taken. After being saved, she instructs Mario and Luigi on several more things, such as how to cure Queen Bean after she's been infected by a Belly Blech and the origin of the Beanstar.

At the end of the game, it is revealed that she is old friends with Toadsworth.


  • The Goodwill Ambassador in the beginning of the game, or rather, Cackletta's disguise as such, strongly resembles Lady Lima, which might imply that Lady Lima was intended to act as the Goodwill Ambassador before Cackletta replaced her.
