He uses a "special big explosion" to get down to the fiftieth floor and writes the graffiti so fiercely that it would be almost impossible to remove. When he finds out that this is a hoax, he files a request at the Trouble Center. Mario accepts the trouble and has Admiral Bobbery destroy the wall after reading the wish.

Her name is a pun on "Bob-omb" and "bobolink", a species of blackbird.

Bog Monster[edit]

The Bog Monster is an apparently horrific creature that, according to Klump, eats everything in sight. It resides in the Forbidden Forest on Kongo Bongo Island, as stated in the Donkey Kong Country cartoon. As it is never seen, the only physical description given is in the lyrics to one of the songs in an, in which it is described as a monster having crystal skin, giant claws, dripping fangs, beady red eyes, stinky breath that could knock over a rhino, hair full of maggots, ears dripping something yellow, and arms thicker than a tree. Of course, this is when Donkey Kong saw it and that was Cranky Kong disguised as a Bog Monster, so this may not be an accurate description.

In the Donkey Kong Country episode "Bug a Boogie", it is revealed that Donkey Kong secretly feared the Bog Monster, as, when he was young, Cranky Kong told him that if he ventured into the Forbidden Forest, the Bog Monster would get him; one day, Donkey Kong disobeyed Cranky Kong and decided to go into the Forbidden Forest, only to encounter and subsequently be scared by a Bog Monster. It is later revealed to Donkey Kong by Cranky Kong that he had, in actuality, simply made up the story of the Bog Monster, and that it was him who scared Donkey Kong when he entered the Forbidden Forest, wanting to teach Donkey Kong a lesson in disobeying him.

Oddly, it seems the Bog Monster may have been an actual creature, since, at the end of "Bug A Boogie", Klump and Krusha, while trying to help King K. Rool out of a pit of quicksand he was stuck in, heard a monstrous roar in the Forbidden Forest, seemingly the Bog Monster.

Diddy Kong also has the talent of mimicking the roar of one, while Funky Kong apparently growls like one when he sleeps.

Bomberto's wife[edit]

“My wife brought my lunchbox to me, but it was empty when I opened it!”

Bowser's father[edit]

A possible portrait of Bowser's father in the Nintendo Switch remake of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Bowser's father was briefly mentioned by him in the Nintendo Comics System issues "Bedtime for Drain-Head" and "The Buddy System". As Bowser's father was only mentioned in passing, not much is known about him, except that he was supposedly a criminal on the run, as Bowser told the captured Toad that he hoped to see his father on the television program "Kingdom's Most Wanted", which is seemingly a parody of America's Most Wanted, a show dedicated to helping catch criminals.

Additionally, Bowser also mentioned that his father was the one who taught him the life lesson "Son, when you put your mind to it, there's no problem too big to run away from!". Mama Koopa is another non-game character who could have been married to Bowser's father.

In the Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island arc in the Super Mario Kodansha manga series, Kamek is depicted taking orders from Baby Bowser's father, who hides in the palace's shadows, until it is revealed to be Raphael the Raven in disguise, à la the Wizard of Oz, under the orders of the actual king, who has gone to "have fun" (according to Kamek).

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and Super Paper Mario, an ambiguous portrait that resembles Bowser with a moustache appears in one of his castles, possibly being his father.

Bowser's grandfather[edit]

Bowser's grandfather is a character mentioned by Bowser in Mario Party Advance. In the quest Bowser: Accused!, Bowser states that the clock in his mansion belonged to his "grandpappy". It is unknown if that is true.

Bowser's sister[edit]

“You remind me of my kid sister
She read so much, she got a blister
A big one, I mean big
On her brain, what a shnook!”
Bowser, "Ignorance is Bliss"

Bowser's sister is one of Bowser's family members. She is only mentioned in the song "Ignorance is Bliss" when Bowser likens Peach to his sister because they both enjoy reading, which he views disparagingly. According to Bowser, his sister got a blister on her brain from all her reading.

Britney is the lead female character in Toad Force V, an implied action TV show mentioned several times in Mario Party Advance; Britney herself is only brought up briefly by Mushbert in the mission DVD for Me.

One of the few things known about Britney is that she surpasses the hero of Toad Force V, Jack, in popularity among the show's fanbase, presumably making her the most popular character in the series. She is Jack's sidekick, and together they are the only known members of the Toad Force V group of protagonists. It is possible that she, like many other characters on the show, is a robotic Toad, but this is theoretical as she is simply identified as a "Heroine", and nothing more.

The first family member of the Cannoli clan

The Cannoli clan is a family of thieves mentioned by Count Cannoli many times in Wario: Master of Disguise. They have been thieves for many generations. Count Cannoli and Goodstyle, who is actually the very first Cannoli, are the only family members seen in the game.

It is known that Goodstyle has been passed down in the family and that each family member has had their own machine (Cannoli had the Mad Hat Mk. I) and that each machine had a weakness. The Mad Hat Mk. II has been protecting the Cannoli family for generations, and is probably the whole family's machine.

C. Parmesan[edit]

The Cap'n[edit]

The Cap'n is a character that is mentioned in Super Mario 64 and its remake, Super Mario 64 DS. In a cavern accessible by swimming through an underwater tunnel past the ship in Jolly Roger Bay, there is a sign with a message from the Cap'n stating that anybody who enters will "meet certain disaster." At the end of the cavern, another sign near a group of treasure chests contains a second message from the Cap'n, this time stating that to obtain his treasure, the player must open the treasure chests in the correct order, but does not explain what the order is. Opening the chests reveals that the Cap'n's "treasure" is the Power Star for the third mission.

As the word "cap'n" is simply short for the word "captain", the title has been used in other Super Mario games; an example of this is in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, where the captain of the S.S. Chuckola is referred to as "Cap'n" in one line of dialogue.

Chief Quimby[edit]

Chief Quimby is the chief of the Metro City police department. He regularly sends Inspector Gadget out on missions to stop Dr. Claw and his MAD Agents from pulling off evil schemes.

Chief Quimby, who was only ever referred to as "The Chief", had a minor role on The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, in the live-action segment "Defective Gadgetry". In it, he called Inspector Gadget on his top-secret gadget phone and asked when Inspector Gadget would be coming over. As Inspector Gadget was awaiting repairs at Mario Brothers Plumbing, he told the Chief that he would be on his way as soon as Mario and Luigi repaired his gadgets.

Colonel Hubert Jefferson[edit]

Colonel Hubert Jefferson is Lucy Belle's great grandfather, and consequently Bones's second great uncle or cousin three times added (though the exact relation is left unspecified), who was mentioned in the Saturday Supercade episode "Double or Nothing". He had left behind a will stating that Mr. Bancroft would inherit his mansion unless Lucy Belle solved a certain rebus puzzle by the midnight following the will's reading, in which she would inherit the mansion instead.


“Fear the curse, but find your Eclair.”
Cranberry, Super Luigi 4

Cranberry is the last of the Luffs. He played a very short, but integral part in Luigi's adventure during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.

Luigi met Cranberry in Rapturous Ruins, where he was found sleeping. With a sneeze (a soft call in the Super Luigi novelization), Luigi awoke Cranberry and earned the ability to speak his language; Cranberry explained that the Luffs were once a great empire because of their use of the Marvelous Compass's powers, but they were cursed because of their greed. Seeing his own people fall into ruin, Cranberry decided to split the compass into seven parts to avoid the repetition of the Luffian fate, hiding six Marvelous Compass pieces and keeping one with himself in Rapturous Ruins. For a thousand years, Cranberry awaited a hero to complete the Marvelous Compass and save Princess Eclair. Luigi turned out to be this noble-hearted hero, and Cranberry promptly gave him the last compass piece. His purpose fulfilled, Cranberry then faded away with a joyful smile.

Cranberry is similar to Merlumina in many ways. Both are members of ancient civilizations who slept for unthinkable amounts of time awaiting heroes to accept the fragments of treasure they held.

He is unmentioned in the Japanese version.[5] In the remake, the Dark Mage is mentioned in Western languages, but is still unmentioned in Eastern languages. As Culex's characterization is closer to the Japanese version, it is also implied that the Dark Mage used evil magic to create or subjugate Culex in the first place.

Eve's husband is mentioned by Eve in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Eve married him sometime after Podley left her, and he is presumedly the father of her children. Prior to Mario arriving in Twilight Town, Eve's husband was turned into a pig by Doopliss. Unable to provide for his family, Eve and her children began to starve. Because of this, as well as Eve mentioning that she is a housewife during her trouble, it can be assumed that he is the breadwinner for the family, and his lack of a confirmed appearance could imply he is not home often. It can also be assumed he is changed back to normal alongside the other transformed villagers and is making money for his family again, allowing Eve to buy Meteor Meals. Interestingly, Eve never mentions being in love with her husband, and even states that she still loves Podley if Mario lies to her about what he said.

Footsteps of Meat is a character (possibly a Sammer Guy) mentioned by Tippi in Super Paper Mario. When using her Tattle on Footsteps of Coins, she reveals that he has a lesser-known brother called Footsteps of Meat. This may be a reference to Bowser's ability to collect meat in his intermissions of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and how Footsteps of Coins puts coins in all levels, implying that Footsteps of Meat disperses the meat throughout Bowser’s levels.

Four heroes[edit]

The four heroes were a quartet of unnamed characters who sealed away the Shadow Queen one thousand years prior to the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They consisted of a strong male Toad from Petal Meadows; a wise female Goomba from Boggly Woods; a scar covered, world-traveling male Koopa; and a cold female Boo. They learned of the evil Shadow Queen and teamed up to defeat her. They managed to seal the demon, but just before the fight was completed, she cursed them. If they ever let go of the Crystal Stars, a black chest would appear and lock them away for all eternity.

The heroes knew the seal on the Shadow Queen was only temporary, and they wanted the stars available to one who might need them. They made a Magical Map to the stars, and to stop evil from using it, they put it in a box that could only be opened by the pure of heart. The merchant in the opening scene of the game has the box and gives it to Princess Peach.

The Toad was exhausted from his journey and collapsed in Petal Meadows. A healer saved him, but knowing his fate, the Toad gave them his Crystal Star and asked them to hide it where nobody would find it, in Hooktail Castle. The Goomba knew the Punies were being terrorized by the nearby monsters, so she hollowed out the Great Tree. She gave the Emerald Star to the Punies where they have been keeping it safe for the past thousand years. Her chest is in Rogueport Underground. The Koopa went to hide the Sapphire Star in Keelhaul Key, but Cortez came and easily took it for himself. The Koopa was so tired he did not stand a chance. His chest is in the Pirate's Grotto. The Boo hid the Ruby Star in Creepy Steeple, and her box is in a shop's storage room in Twilight Town.

One by one, Mario finds the chests and opens them with the Black Keys, releasing them and letting them "curse" Mario with new powers. While the others appear to be taunting Mario, the Koopa one at least did not appear evil, as he is rehearsing the speech. After they "curse" Mario, they vanish and are neither seen nor mentioned again. Mario can also pay Grifty to hear the story of their adventure and how they came to be trapped in the black chests.

Hamma Jamma's first mention of him states that he dropped out of Hammer Bros. school, choosing to enroll in Business Bros. school. This act seemed to have embarrassed and confused his son. The last mention of him, however, seems to suggest that Hamma Jamma may still love his father: When referring to his dad this time, Hamma says that he is actually attending his fight that day (which could mean that he appeared in the audience during one of Mario's fights), and he wishes to win and impress him.

Hamma Jamma's grandfather[edit]

Hamma Jamma's grandfather is a Hammer Bro of unknown name, brought up by his grandson several times in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He actually first appears as an unknown Hammer Bro in Super Mario Bros.

Hamma Jamma, a fighter in the Glitz Pit and member of the Hamma, Bamma, and Flare team, continually cites his grandfather as his inspiration. Apparently, his grandfather once owned his beloved hammer and is one of Hamma's several family members he left behind to pursue a career in fighting.

Hamma Jamma stated that World 7-1 from Super Mario Bros. is his grandfather's "'hood".


Handerson is the speaker in the EJIA phone call in WarioWare Gold. A self-described "hand model" and "finger actor", Handerson heavily implies to be the character that the hand seen in the microgames Butterfingers and Right in the Eye pertains to.

Heronicus' Flopside Counterpart is mentioned by a few characters in Super Paper Mario (mainly Hatch). He is a brave explorer who went hunting for a legendary Pixl but his partner's game ended while Heronicus' Flopside counterpart saved the Pixl, so he continued exploring solo. The Pixl he rescued turned out to be Piccolo who was found in his house. Heronicus contrasts from what his counterpart did and rescued his partner while his legendary Pixl presumably died. Because of this, he and his partner retired out of depression. Flamm sells Maps left behind by Heronicus' Flopside Counterpart. His name is not mentioned at any point of the game nor is he even seen.


Hizza is a giant, two-headed snake that Luigi fights during his adventure to assemble the Marvelous Compass and rescue Princess Eclair. In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the people of Plumpbelly Village are forced to sacrifice young maidens to the monstrous snake Hizza. Eventually, the mayor's daughter is the next to be sacrificed. As such, Luigi puts on the young woman's dress and travels (with his new partner Jerry) to Hizza's lair. During the epic battle that follows, Luigi manages to trick Hizza's two heads into eating each other, thus destroying the creature for all eternity as well as gaining a piece of the Marvelous Compass. As a result, the citizens of Plumpbelly Village no longer have to live in fear.

In response, Toad uttered, "Who'd you expect? Pee-wee Herman?"

Pixl Queen[edit]

The Pixl Queen is an unseen Pixl spoken of in Super Paper Mario. This rebellious Pixl is only talked about in four of Carson's stories, though quite a bit is revealed about her in these.

Despite the Pixl Queen being the first Pixl ever created, she seemed to stay largely quiet for what is thought to be 1,000 years after the creation of the Pixls 3,000 years before the setting of Super Paper Mario. However, seemingly long after the passing of her creator (the powerful magician who invented the process of Pixl-making), the Pixl Queen (then of an unknown name) finally rose into power, renaming herself with her only known name of "Pixl Queen." She then began to use her powers of mind control to manipulate all Pixls, causing them to eventually enslave most of the Tribe of Ancients (who were ironically once their masters) in her name. However, the owners of the magician's twelve original Pixl creations managed to somehow escape this Pixl Uprising and started to fight against the rebellious Pixls, containing them within Catch Cards and healing them. In the end, only one of these heroic Ancients survived, and he traveled with only his Pixl friends to the Pixl Queen's castle.

Once he arrived at the stronghold, he confronted the dark Pixl Queen herself, who immediately hid from the hero and shot a barrage of disturbing images to his mind telepathically. Although this greatly weakened the Ancient hero, one of his Pixls helped him through the tragedy and ended up defeating the Pixl Queen itself, although it was destroyed in the process of doing so. Afterwards, it was shockingly revealed to the hero who owned the Pixl that the Pixl Queen was the first created of the Pixls (perhaps created even earlier than the magician's so-called "original" twelve Pixls) and that the magician's motives for creating her involved the study of the Dark Prognosticus. The Ancient survivor, attempting to stop such a tragedy as the Pixl Uprising from ever happening again, then took the Dark Prognosticus with himself to unknown parts, likely founding the Tribe of Darkness known to once have possessed the dark book. Afterwards, the Pixl Queen's mutinous efforts led to the fall of the Tribe of Ancients and the outlawing of Pixl creation.

Though these are the only known actions of the seemingly late Pixl Queen, more is indeed known about the Pixl herself. Although the spirit united with the Pixl vessel that formed the Pixl Queen had previously been described as "demonic", Carson later stated that a certain one of the magician's apprentices books revealed that the Pixl Queen's spirit was actually derived from a human rather than a demon. It was on this principle that Carson theorized that the Pixl Queen's spirit may have been that of the magician's own daughter (who did indeed get a Game Over during her father's life due to a deathly illness), although he later seemed to have not been sure about this theory in his statement that the author disavowed it. It is also unknown if the Pixl Queen had any helpful ability, although she was indeed able to control all Pixls and used the power of telepathy in her battle against the Ancient survivor, making these possible ability candidates.

Prince Croacus[edit]

Prince Croacus was the deceased (euphemistically referred to as "wilted") prince of the Floro Sapiens in Super Paper Mario. He was Queen Croacus II's sibling, and was going to inherit the throne. However, he suddenly wilted in the year 444, leading to the mental decline, corruption, and eventual death of his father as well. Queen Croacus the Second eventually took the throne in his place after the fall of Croacus I. Prince Croacus dying in 444 is an example of a common Japanese (and Chinese) association of the number four with death, as the characters for "four" (四) and "death" (死) have similar readings (shi, in Japanese).

Princess Daisy's father[edit]

Princess Eclair[edit]

Princess Eclair was the damsel-in-distress that Luigi rescued from the clutches of the monstrous Chestnut King in the Waffle Kingdom. However, as it turns out, the Chestnut King was actually Princess Eclair's lover, who had been turned into a monster by the sinister Minister Crepe. This story is told by Luigi when Mario talks to him throughout the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.

During Luigi's adventure, he fell in love with Princess Eclair. However, after he discovered that the Chestnut King was Princess Eclair's fiancee, Luigi lost the hope of ever forming a romantic relationship with the princess. Since Luigi embellished his stories so much, it is unknown whether any of it really happened as he described (or whether she even exists at all).

She is also mentioned in Luigi's five-book series, called Super Luigi, which is sold in Rogueport's shop during the events of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.

Toxic Toad Z[edit]

Toxic Toad Z is one of the handful of known characters from Toad Force V mentioned in Mario Party Advance. Toxic Toad Z is a Toad-based robotic villain in the series, and the henchman of Toad Force V's arch-nemesis, the Spore King.

When Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, or Yoshi accept Lantern Ghost's Nerd Force V challenge, they are directed to go to Junk, Paratroopa's item shop. On this specific mission, Junk is up and running with two items: A "Toad Force V" figurine (actually one of Jack) and a figure of Toxic Toad Z. While selecting the Toad Force V figurine is the correct action for this mission, it does not hurt to select the one of Toxic Toad Z; such an action will result in Paratroopa revealing much about the Toxic Toad Z character.

Paratroopa seems to know quite a bit about him, though, and, for an unseen character, there actually is a notably large amount of known information about him. According to him, Toxic Toad Z fights with lasers and giant missiles, and his design was stolen (by the Spore King) from the Toad lab. Also, it apparently takes a "hard-core fan" to buy a figurine of Toxic Toad Z, presumably because he is a villainous (and possibly minor) henchman; despite this statement, Junk was all out of his figures at the time the player attempted to buy one, although they were apparently expecting a new shipment of them to arrive soon. Indeed, the game's ending sequence states that Paratroopa made a fortune by selling Toxic Toad Z figures, indicating that the shipment did eventually arrive sometime during the course of Mario Party Advance.

Alongside her husband, she scolds her son for returning from the playground full of bruises and scratches and punishes him by tying him up to a pillar of their house. When Wario's parents decide to go outside to eat, Wario overhears them and follows them asking if he can come along, still tied to the pillar, destroying the house and angering his parents more. In these panels, only the father's arm and the mother's legs are shown.

Her name is unknown. However, Watt's Pause Menu Screen description reads: "The child of Li'l Sparky", which might mean Watt's mother's name is Li'l Sparky. However, this may only refer to her species rather than her name.
