First appearance Paper Mario: Color Splash (2016)

The Rock Paper Wizard is an ally in Paper Mario: Color Splash that competes in the Roshambo Temple. He is the last opponent Mario faces during Super Roshambo after Mario defeats a Koopaling or Kamek during the main story. If he's defeated, then Mario will receive a Koopaling or Kamek Battle Card along with 1000 coins. After being defeated in the eighth Roshambo Temple, he takes off his paper hat and he turns out to be a Toad. When Mario leaves the temple, it turns out there were eight Rock Paper Wizards in total, all waiting outside.

After all the Rock Paper Wizards are defeated, checking the Prisma Café at each temple shows their masks behind the owners. They also comment about the Rock Paper Wizards when talked to.

Concept art of the Rock Paper Wizard (shown below) depicts him in an outfit that gives him a somewhat similar appearance to a Duplighost; an enemy that appeared in past Paper Mario games. The name of this character is a pun on the real world hand game called rock–paper–scissors.
