Master Poet
“I'm Simon. I'm rhymin'. To folks who know it, I'm the Master Poet. Poor Pop Diva cannot sing, but my Lyrics are just the thing.”
Master Poet, Paper Mario

The Master Poet, whose real name is Simon, is a Toad who hangs out in Club 64 to be near his love, the Pop Diva, in the game Paper Mario. The Pop Diva is completely unaware of Master Poet's love and affection for her. When she loses her voice, the Master Poet is stricken with grief. He usually speaks sentences that rhyme.

The first time Mario visits him, he will say that he wants to write lyrics, but the last line is unfinished. If Mario visits him later, he will finish the last line, and give the Lyrics to Mario, asking him to find a composer to complement it with music. With the Melody from Toad in the Desert, the Pop Diva is able to sing again.


  • "He writes songs. They call him Master Poet. He's a pretty cool guy. He's in love with Pop Diva. He's really worried about her. I know just how he feels... Mario, don't laugh!"
