"Am I glad to see you! The Princess...and I...and, well, everybody...we're all trapped inside the castle walls. Bowser has stolen the castle's Stars, and he's using their power to create his own world in the paintings and walls. Please recover the Power Stars! As you find them, you can use their power to open the doors that Bowser has sealed. There are four rooms on the first floor. Start in the one with the painting of Bob-omb inside. It's the only room that Bowser hasn't sealed. When you collect eight Power Stars, you'll be able to open the door with the big star. The Princess must be inside!"
(to Yoshi) "Thank heavens you came too, Yoshi! Bowser has locked Princess Toadstool and all of us inside the walls. He stole our Power Stars, and is using their magic to create an evil land of monsters in the castle walls and paintings. Mario and his buddies went to retrieve the Stars, but they haven't come back. Last time I saw them, they were heading to the room with the painting of the Bob-ombs. Where are they?! Are they taking a nap somewhere? Now it's up to you, Yoshi, to find them and retrieve the Stars! We all are depending on you!"
(to Mario) "Mario! Am I glad to see you! I hadn't seen you in so long, that I was getting worried! Looks like you met up with Yoshi all right, huh? You better get back to finding the Power Stars. Princess Toadstool is depending on you! You are our only hope."
(with Mario's cap) "Mario, I found this cap in front of the castle a little while ago. You look really good in it, so here you go!"
(to Luigi) "Huh? Who are you? Oh, yes...Luigi, right? You're always in Mario's shadow, so I didn't recognize you at first. Princess Toadstool is still trapped inside the walls. Won't you please retrieve the Power Stars, Luigi? But don't get in Mario's way or anything."
(with Luigi's cap) "Luigi, I found this cap in front of the castle a little while ago. You must have dropped it. If you want to become a full-fledged hero like your brother, you can't be so careless!"
(to Wario) "Eek! Oh, i-it's you, Wario. You're looking as bad as ever. S-sorry! Sorry! Don't give me that dirty look. A-actually, now that I look closer, you look horrible. Erm, horribly healthy that is. I'm not just saying that. Have you been working out? Princess Toadstool is still trapped in the walls. We're all counting on your muscle to defeat Bowser and get the Power Stars. Wait a minute. You wouldn't sneak one out of the castle, right? Eek! J-just kidding!"
(with Wario's cap) "Wario, I found this cap in front of the castle a little while ago. I knew it was yours because of its distinctive...erm...aroma. Actually, it reeked pret-ty bad. I can't believe I touched it. You really should wash that thing more often. Anyways, here you go."
(to Yoshi) "Yoshi! Mario and the others just jumped into that picture. But...they haven't come back out, despite the castle's plight. Despite all that, it's really rude to act like a maniac. Use the Touch Screen to run and walk even on narrow ledges."
(to Mario) "Mario, Yoshi jumped in that picture chasing you. Did he find you? The mountain in that picture looks like a great place to relax. I bet it's a peaceful land, with no strife."
(to Luigi) "Luigi, I heard that you can run on water for brief periods. That's just incredible! I have a new respect for you, seriously. Oh! I know! Can you show me a backward somersault? Spin, spin, SUPERSPIN!"
(to Wario) "Wario, it's impolite to shuffle noisily around the castle, you know. No matter how tough you look...it's...umm...prohibited."
(to Yoshi) "Bowser took all the Stars I tried to hide here. There are 7 in each course. You'll need your buddies to get some of them. Teamwork goes a long way when you're going up against Bowser."
(to Mario) "Mario, why don't you triple jump into the painting? It's such a stylish move! I'll watch it from here."
(to Luigi) "What?! You're Luigi? The world's most inept and least charismatic brother? Wow! Can you introduce me to Mario? Huh? Did we meet the other day? I totally forgot. You're not very memorable. I guess your brother got all the charisma in the family, huh!"
(to Wario) "Your reputation's bad, Wario, but only because your mustache is mean looking. If you ask me, it's a good look. It'll scare the enemies into forking over the stolen Power Stars!"
(to Yoshi) "The Star you chose at the beginning of the course appears on the map below. The name of the Star is also a clue. You can also collect Stars that don't appear on the map. Get the Stars in any order you like. Keep in mind though...Some Stars only appear when you choose specific missions, enemies, and items. Once you've retrieved some Stars, move on to the door to the next course. Everyone's waiting for you to save us!"
(to Mario) "Being imprisoned in these walls can drive a fungus crazy. When I really start to freak out, I think to myself, "Well, I'm going to be here for a while, so I might as well stare at the fish. They are oddly hypnotic." Then I actually start to like being captured............Aaaguugh! IT'S MADNESS! I've got to snap out of this! You have to free us before we're all completely brainwashed! ...But for now, why don't you gaze at the fish with me. You look tense. Come relax."
(to Luigi) "Sometimes when I'm staring at the fish, I think I wouldn't mind staying here forever. It helps me forget about my horrible fate. Would you like to join me and watch together? It'll soothe you."
(to Wario) "Wario?! Eek! There are no valuables in here, so please don't hurt me. I'm serious! Why don't you just sit down and stare at the fish with me?"
(to Yoshi) "That dinosaur-skin look is so aeons ago. You know, even a cap would really spice up your look. Come back when you get one, because I have advice for the fashionably dressed."
(to Mario) "Even if all the caps look the same, the one you've been wearing for years is special. Your luck will run out if you lose it. When you lose your cap, hitting a ? Block is very unlucky. But don't worry. You can find your cap in the course where you lost it. It should appear on the map below."
(to Luigi) "Luigi, even if all the caps look the same, the one you've been wearing for years is special. Don't lose it or your luck will run out. If you lose your cap, hitting a ? Block will spell disaster! But don't worry too much. If you lose your cap, you'll find it in the course where you lost it--just look at the map below."
(to Wario) "Wario, just because the caps look the same, the one you've been wearing for years is special. Your luck will turn bad without it. Don't count on your devilishly good luck to bail you out of this one, Wario. Without your cap, you'll only get trouble from the ? Block. You can find your lost cap in the course where you lost it. It should appear on the map below."
(to Yoshi) "Wow! You've recovered that many Stars? Way to go, Yoshi! I knew I could count on you. You'll have us out of here in no time! Be careful, though. Bowser and his band are getting desperate. Here's a tip to help you out: When you fall from a high place, you can avoid getting hurt if you pound the ground before you land."
(to Mario) "Wow! You've recovered that many Stars? Way to go! You'll have us out of here in no time! Be careful, though. Bowser and his band wrote the book on bad. Take my advice: When you fall from a high place, it'll hurt less if you ground-pound near the ground. If you go back to your room, you can switch places with Yoshi. Everyone deserves a chance to shine."
(to Luigi) "Wow! You've recovered that many Stars? Way to go, Mario! ...What? You're Luigi? I don't believe it. Luigi couldn't have pulled off such an impressive feat! Stop trying to fool me, Mario! You might be wearing green clothes...But don't think I can't tell you two apart. Fine. If you're really Luigi, you'll be able to spin in the air after a backward somersault. You'll also have the amazing agility and be able to run on water for a second. You'll also be able to scuttle in Standard Mode by holding B. When I see you do all that, maybe then I'll believe you're Luigi!"
(to Wario) "I can tell that you are obsessed with money. But since coins help you recover from injuries, we should all be so greedy. I hear red coins refill 2 pieces of the Power Meter and blue coins refill 5. That's incredible!"
(to Yoshi) "Thank you, Yoshi! The Power Stars are returning one by one. You've chased Bowser right out of here! Oh, by the way, are you collecting coins? Special Stars appear when you collect 100 coins in each of the 15 courses!"
(to Mario) "Thanks! The castle is recovering its energy as you retrieve Power Stars. You've chased Bowser right out of here, on some area ahead. Oh, by the way, are you collecting coins? Special Stars appear when you collect 100 coins in each of the 15 courses!"
(to Luigi) "Hey, Luigi! I'm your biggest fan! You're the best "supporting actor" the world's ever seen! The work you've done guarding Mario is great! I think if you were a bit more assertive, you could definitely move into a leading role! By the way, are you collecting coins? Special Stars appear when you collect 100 coins in each of the 15 courses!"
(to Wario) "Thank you, Wario! The Power Stars are returning one by one. I feel terrible that I misjudged you. I assumed you came to the castle to steal treasures... It's just that you have such a nasty-looking face, so I thought... Oh, no, that's not what I meant to say! Your face is very tough looking, very rugged. Perfect for scaring enemies. Ahem. Oh, yes. You like coins, right? Special Stars appear when you collect 100 coins in each of the 15 courses!"
(to Yoshi) "Wow! Look at all those Power Stars! Please, give Bowser the boot! Here, let me give you hints about the castle. In then room with the mirrors, look carefully for anything that's not reflected in the mirror, and an ally with info. And when you go to the water town, you can flood it with a high jump into the painting."
(to Mario) "Thanks to the power of the Stars, life is returning to the castle. Please, you have to give Bowser the boot! Here, let me give you a hint about the castle. In then room with the mirrors, look carefully for anything that's not reflected in the mirror, and an ally with info. And when you go to the water town, you can flood it with a high jump into the painting."
(to Luigi) "You're really whaling on Bowser, Luigi! We'll have to call you the Luigi Brothers soon! I'll tell you a secret that will help you out. In the room with the mirrors, look carefully for anything that's not reflected in the mirror, and an ally with info. And when you go to the water town, you can flood it with a high jump into the painting."
(to Wario) "I guess I was wrong about you, Wario! You can't be all bad if you've retrieved this many Power Stars. I'll trust you with some castle secrets: In the room with the mirrors, look carefully for anything that's not reflected in the mirror, and an ally with info. And when you go to the water town, you can flood it with a high jump into the painting."
(to Yoshi) "You've got Bowser cornered, Yoshi! If you hadn't been around, it would've been disastrous! Also, there's something strange about that clock. As you jump inside, watch the position of the big hand."
(to Mario) "You've made it this far, Mario. Bowser is waiting on the top floor. You must go rescue the princess. I'll stay here and, um, keep a look out. But before you go, keep in mind that the world inside that clock is weird! When you jump inside, watch the position of the big hand!"
(to Luigi) "You've made it this far, Luigi! I guess Mario's not the only one who's super. But remember this before you go! The world inside that clock is weird! When you jump inside, watch the position of the big hand!"
(to Wario) "Wow! Look at all those Power Stars! Guess you're good at other things besides stealing money, huh. Oh yeah. Don't forget that the world inside that clock is very strange! When you jump inside, watch the position of the big hand!"
"AAAAUGH! A BEE!...What?! Mario? Hey...it's YOU! We escaped from Peach's Castle too! But then we thought Bowser would get us and then we got lost with Luigi...Oh! I just remembered! We found a Power Star! I'm sure you need this, so here, take it."
"Mario! Somehow we made it too! We'll help you get the Power Stars and save Princess Peach! You can count on us, Mario! We're all in this together!"
"We've finished building the Starshroom starship. We'll use it to search for Power Stars! And we, the members of the Toad Brigade, will be the brave crew!"
"And this brigade needs a bold leader so I nominate...um...well..me! Under my command, the galaxies will see the bravery of the Toad Brigade!"
"See you around the galaxies!"
"Mario! My brigade boarded the enemy fleet, and none have returned! As captain, I would go save them myself, but I'm much too busy at the moment...and scared."
"Boo hoo hoo! Where did you go Mario? Waaaaaah! Wah!"
"Wah...Wow! It's Luigi! You finally made it! Oh, joy! Thank goodness! Me? Well, Princess Peach asked me to come here to look for Mario. He left when he heard that you'd won a mansion, and he never returned! Th...then when I arrived here, the mansion was full of ghosts and I didn't see Mario anywhere, and I kind of freaked out a little, and I didn't know what to do!! It's been awful! Please, please, please, you HAVE to help me find Mario! If he doesn't get back, you have no idea how upset the princess will be! She'll flip!"
"I wish I could do something to help you.. Wait! I've got it!"
"...I just hope your long vacation hasn't left you out of shape."
"That big, bad, mean, altogether nasty Bowser went rushing out toward the other exit!"
"When was your last battle? Did you already forget about action commands?"
"Ahem... Then let me explain, OK? First off, you have to attack!"
"Press the Button here!"
"If you get the timing just right... you'll do EXTRA damage!"
"Every attack has its very own Action Command..."
"So be sure to master them all!"
"OK, on with the pummeling..."
"I forgot something!"
"This is really important! You can also dodge Bowser's attacks!"
"Do you want to know how?"
"Oh really? I should have known!"
"Sorry for the interruption!"
"OK! Um... Mr. Ugly Bad Guy? Could you please attack?"
"See, if you dodge attacks, you won't take damage at all! And by the way, when you think you can dodge... Just look over here to be sure!"
"Then watch closely as your foe attacks and time your dodge!"
"Listen to me, everyone!!! Something terrible has happened!"
"The Goodwill Ambassador from our neighbor, the Beanbean Kingdom, just paid a visit!"
"Yeah! But it was no friendly visit! The ambassador stole Princess Peach's voice!"
"...A-And replaced it with this explosive vocabulary!"
"Mario! Please! Go and retrieve Princess Peach's beautiful voice! Only you can do it!"
"The perpetrator came from the Beanbean Kingdom! If you head over there, you should be able to learn more!"
"You can stretch out and warm up here in this plaza."
"Oh, and I'd talk to everyone around here. Who knows what you might learn?"
"Mario! Bowser isn't that way!"
"I've been trying to tell you he's not there! Don't you listen?"
"You know what? You're a real pest! And guess what else? You still can't go that way!"
"So, you're going to the Beanbean Kingdom? That's quite a journey. Do you want to learn about Action Icons before you go?"
"Haha! Oh, all right, all right..."
"Action Icons are symbols that show you what actions you can perform at any given time."
"If you press the button when this icon is showing, you'll jump. BOING! You're good at that, right?"
"Stand in front of someone and press the Button when this icon appears to speak.
"And when this icon appears, press the Button to do a little investigating...You'll see this icon when you stand near signs and things. Keep an eye out for it!
"So, that's the fast and dirty explanation. Want to hear it again?"
"Hey, by the way, is Luigi staying behind to keep an eye on the home front?"
"Oh! Wow! My Mushroom! You got it for me?"
"Won't you please return my Mushroom to me?"
"Oh, thank you so much! Yes! But...Say, you're going to the Beanbean Kingdom soon, huh? You'd better keep it, then. And please take this as a going-away gift! I insist!"
"And good luck with all your jumping and stuff over there in the Beanbean Kingdom!"
"Practice your jumping so you can remember how high you can jump!"
"Oh! Mario! Your mustache looks so silky-smooth today! Show me that super jump!"
"Oh! That was so awesome! Mario, you're the only one in the whole world who can jump like that! You rule!"
"It's just like I always say: If you see that mustache and that jump, it's Mario!"
"This is weird..I can't seem to find my precious belonging. Mario! Do you think maybe you could help me look for it?"
"Some hero you are..."
"Come on! Please? Just help me find my precious belonging!"
"I think I dropped it while I was walking up here, so focus on this ledge, OK?"
"You know, when you approach suspicious-looking areas, the Action Icon changes... If I were you, I'd ask that guy near the fountain about the Action Icons!
"Hey! That's it! That's the precious belonging I've been looking for! Thank you!"
"You are the best! THE BEST! Please take this in return!"
"Keep up the good work!"
"Yeah, so, I recently returned from a really nice trip to the Beanbean Kingdom. Ah, Hoohoo Mountain, Oho Ocean, Chucklehuck Woods, Teehee Valley... So much to see! I've recorded all my travels in my Save Album!"
"Bowser's Koopa Cruiser is parked just up ahead. Hoo! That is one mean machine! Boy! ...Anyway, it's time you were on your way! Head in that derection once you're ready, OK? But, uh... Rushing headfirst into trouble like you always do is crazy, so be sure to save with that Save Album!"
"Bowser Jr.! He showed up and did that thing with the thing, and... Oh crab apples. Just come and see for yourself!"
"Look! LOOOOOK! Bowser Jr. turned Princess Daisy into a statue! You gotta do something do something! You gotta stop Bowser Jr.! He went back there somewhere! Princess Peach and Toadsworth are back there too..."
"I'm going to stay here and look after Princess Daisy! Toadette is somewhere near Toad Flower Garden. Talk to her for more details."
To Hammer Bro.: "G-g-get out of here! Don't you dare lay a finger on Princess Daisy!"
To Mario: "There you are! P-P-PLEASE!! You have to help!"
After victory against Hammer Bro.: "Oh, thank you so much! Please take care of Princess Daisy! What?! You want to take this statue of Princess Daisy with you? NO WAY DUDE! NUH-UH! What if you drop it and she breaks into a kajillion pieces? HUH?"
"Fountain? You need it to stop the flooding? Oh...Weeeeell... OK. But you gotta PROMISE not to drop her!"
"I'm worried about all of you, so please take me along! I'll do my best to protect you! ...From back here."
"The moment you've been waiting for is finally here! Let London Party Round (number) begin!"
"Player one... (P1 character name)! Player two... (P2 character name)! Player three... (P3 character name)! Player four... (P4 character name)!"
"Good luck, everyone! Is there anyone who needs an explanation of the rules?"
"Big Ben tolls to signal the start of Event Time. You get stickers based on how well you do."
"Putting a sticker on a ? icon can have various effects. These will get stronger as you play!"
"Okay, please head out into London! There is a Shy Guy waiting for your first bonus game!"
"Catch the Shy Guy to get stickers, and put them in your sticker book! Who knows what will happen if you place stickers into the ? icons in the sticker book? Top your sticker book and become the Party Champion!"
"Okay, now stick those stickers into your sticker book!"
"This is Free Time now. You can explore London, talk to townsfolk, and participate in Bonus Games.
"In 4th... (4th place character name)! In 3rd... (3rd place character name)! In 2nd... (2nd place character name)! And in 1st... (1st place character name)! Which means...
"No change in the rankings, it seems. I guess that leaves the standings where they were, but it's not over. It's sill anybody's chance to win in the end. Let's keep going and see how it all turns out."
"Oh my... a distant fourth place."
"Oh, dear. A distant fourth place."
"It's almost over!"
"And... oh, dear. A distant fourth place."
"You're in fourth place, but so close to third!"
"Second place! I was worried there for a bit..."
"Stickers: (number) more to go!"
"Oops... A distant fourth. Guess this wasn't your lucky day. Maybe next time!"
"So close, but you ended up in fourth place! Try for the top three next time."
"Wow, it's a tie for third place! That was really close there."
"You just barely held on to third place. Try to do even better next time!"
"You came in third place. Adjust your game and you'll do even better next time!"
"You came in third place, but you were so close! Better luck next time!"
"Oh! This is unusual! You exactly tied for first/second place! Congratulations!"
"You barely came in second, but you managed to hang on somehow."
"You came in second, but you had me worried there for a while."
"You came in second! But you were so close to finishing first."
"How interesting! A tie for first! Everyone's all tied up!"
