Greater location Rogueport's surrounding areas

First appearance Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

Petal Meadows is a small area which leads to Petalburg and Hooktail Castle in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Players can reach this area by going through a certain Warp Pipe found in Rogueport Sewers. The enemies found here include Goombas (as well as Goomba sub-species) and Koopa Troopas. It's the only place where Horsetails can be retrieved. The full description on the game's map reads, "Meadows that lie far to the east of Rogueport. It's a warm and flowery place."

Petal Meadows is similar to Pleasant Path in Paper Mario.

Area Tattles[edit]

Mario interacting with the background.
  • Ah, the Petal Meadows. A plateau surrounded by hills far to the east of Rogueport. It's mild and pleasant here all year round. I love it! Doesn't it feel nice? ...Oh, hey, and Mario? If you hit a tree, sometimes something good falls out. I know that came out of left field, but I mean it! If you see a tree, smack it!
  • Ah, the Petal Meadows. The scenery's super-nice, but be careful of all the Goombas. Make sure you've always got enough HP and FP to fight, will ya? Oh, and you can press Z Button to check your stats, too.
  • The river running through here totally makes the air crisp and refreshing. Hey, and by the way, Mario, have you tried checking the grass around here? Sometimes those clumps of grass hide good stuff, so always check them with A Button!
  • This path leads to Shhwonk Fortress. ...Is it just me, or is this area darker? There are enemies around, so if you feel weak, remember to take it easy, OK?
  • This is part of Shhwonk Fortress. We got a couple pedestals here. That's it. It looks pretty decent, but this place is actually insanely old, did you know that? I'd say it was built about... a thousand years ago. Yup. What vibrant ruins!
  • This is the path to Shhwonk Fortress. The air here's a bit stale, don'tcha think? Oh, yeah, and listen, Mario... Remember, you don't have to attack every enemy you see. If you have low HP, you might just wanna avoid them. That's Exploring 101, y'know?
  • This is part of Shhwonk Fortress. We got a couple pedestals here. That's it. Still, to archaeologists, this place is a gold mine. I gotta come back sometime...
  • This is the path to Shhwonk Fortress. The main entrance is just over there. There's a recovery block there, too. If your HP and FP are low, hit it, OK?
  • This is Shhwonk Fortress. Suspicious statue... I'm pretty sure it's a Thwomp bust. Hey, I just remembered something I read about this place in a book! Whenever the villagers were confronted with a monster, they'd hide in this fortress... I guess there's a little bit of history everywhere you look, huh, Mario?
  • We're in Shhwonk Fortress. My shoes are totally soaked through now... Just great. Plus, it's dark, and cramped, and it smells totally bad... This place is not cool, Mario.
  • There sure are a lot of Fuzzies living here in Shhwonk Fortress... I saw one a minute ago, and I thought it was a ghost! I totally hate dark places...
  • We're in Shhwonk Fortress. All this water has made the place a little cold... I wouldn't mind getting out of here for some fresh air soon, you know what I mean?
  • All this moisture makes this place really moldy-smelling. And what's that other stink? Is that what wet Fuzzy smells like? I think I'm gonna totally barf.
  • We're in Shhwonk Fortress. This room is damp and moldy, too. Like every other one. Jeepers creepers... I just wanna see the sun again. Is that so wrong?

  • The background music used in Petal Meadows seems to include interludes of the bonus area theme as played in the Super Mario All-Stars version of Super Mario Bros.
  • The background used outside of the Mario Bros.' House in Super Paper Mario would appear to have been modeled after that of Petal Meadows, retaining its dark, swirly areas featured on clouds and light blue lines through the sky.
