- “Leave this to me, Lord Junior...”
- —Ludwig von Koopa, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey
Negotiate is a first officer command used by Ludwig von Koopa in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey. It is Ludwig's first command, the second being Stop and Drop. It costs 6 CP to use. Once activated, Ludwig will run up to an enemy and attempt to deceive and condescend them into leaving the battle. If successful, the enemy will leave the battle. If this is not effective, the enemy will remain on the field and Ludwig will receive a stat boost instead. This is one of the two Captain Commands not known by any enemies in the game, the other being Coddle.
