List of Levels

The Roshambo Temples are large arenas in Paper Mario: Color Splash where rock-paper-scissors tournaments take place (called Super Roshambo). There are eight of them located all over Prism Island, and act as a stadium, having cheering Toads as the audience with a jumbotron that shows the three hand signs and Mario's picture when he wins a round. Each temple also has a Prisma Café to the right of the entrance.

They first need to be unlocked. Sometimes, when obtaining a Mini Paint Star, a medallion with a Roshambo icon on it will show up. If Mario grabs it, a new temple will open up.

In every temple, there are three rounds a challenger has to win to become champion of that temple. Two Toads standing outside the temple will give hints as to how the first two opponents choose their cards, except for the eighth temple. Each opponent Mario faces is one of the game's enemies, each differing between temples. However in round three, instead of an enemy, Mario will instead face off against the Rock Paper Wizard if one of the story bosses has just been defeated. A Koopaling or Kamek Enemy Card and 1000 coins are obtained by beating Rock Paper Wizard on every occasion (a Replica Thing card and 1000 coins if it was an enemy). When he's defeated in all eight temples, Rock Paper Wizard reveals he is retiring and takes off his hand hat, letting everyone know he was a Toad. Mario and Huey leave the temple and discover there were actually eight Rock Paper Wizards. The Rock Paper Wizards' masks are seen next to the owners of each Prisma Café afterwards.

If the player loses in any of the three confrontations, it is required to get a Mini Paint Star in order to enter again. However, a blue Toad in a left corner can sneak Mario into the tournament for a fee.
