Mario and his party face off against Smithy in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Party members, also known as partners or allies, are characters that travel with and battle alongside the protagonist in RPGs. The protagonist and his partners as a group are generally referred to as a party, as the event of a character joining is referred to as said character "joining your party."

Paper Mario series[edit]

Paper Mario[edit]

In Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64, partners are either referred to as Party Members[1] or Mario's Friends.[2] In this game, Mario can only have one Party Member active at a time. Switching Party Members mid-battle uses up Mario's turn unless he is wearing the Quick Change badge. Party Members do not have HP; most enemies' attacks will only target Mario, and the few that can hit Mario's Party Members will simply incapacitate them for a certain number of turns depending on how much damage they took. If the attack is successfully guarded against, the Party Member will take no damage. Party Members can be upgraded with Super Blocks, which increases their attack power and makes them learn new moves. Each Party Member can be upgraded twice, first to Super Rank, then to Ultra Rank. Mario must have the Ultra Stone to upgrade Party Members to Ultra Rank.
