First appearance

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

The Ragged Diary is a diary that belongs to Ghost T. in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Ghost T., while alive, was a passenger on the Excess Express. Ghost T. later died in his cabin and is tied to it by his fear of someone ever reading his diary, which was still in the luggage car of the Excess Express.

When Mario and his partners come to his room (Cabin 4), he is not visible. Mario has to hide with Vivian for a couple of seconds to make him appear. When he does, he asks Mario to find his diary, but warns Mario not to read it. When Mario finds the diary, he has an option to read it or not. If Mario agrees to read the Ragged Diary, he will read the following:

Month X Day X Cloudy

I got on a train today,

And on that train...

Before Mario can go any further, Ghost T. appears, and yells at Mario and co. for not listening to him, followed by the screen warbling and rotating multiple times before presenting an automatic Game Over.
