Sammer's Kingdom is the setting of Chapter 6 in Super Paper Mario, and is the namesake of Chapter 6-1. It is discovered after putting the sixth Pure Heart in the Heart Pillar and going through the blue door. It was destroyed by The Void in the main story, leaving nothing but an empty white space, but was restored after the story's end.

This land is ruled by King Sammer. It is most notable for being the location of the Duel of 100 tournament, in which challengers face off against 100 Sammer Guys. Only the first 25 Sammer Guys are faced in Chapter 6-1, while the rest are encountered in the three other chapters. However, in the main story, only the first twenty Sammer Guys are battled.

In addition to the Duel of 100, Tippi/Tiptron's tattles mention various other events held in the Sammer's Kingdom, such as the Sammer Guy Break Hour, the annual Sammer Guy BBQ, the Sammy Awards, and the annual Sammer Quiz; however, Mario and friends are unable to attend any of these in person.

Chapters/Locations[edit]

Story[edit]

  • Sammer's Kingdom (Chapter 6-1: Sammer Guy Showdown): A Japanese-inspired kingdom. The only part of the kingdom that can be visited is the castle, where the Duel of 100 takes place.
  • Sammer's Early Duels (Chapter 6-2: The End of a World): Mimi is battled here in her girl form. This level is technically never completed, as Sammer's Kingdom is destroyed by The Void.
  • World of Nothing (Chapter 6-1): The world's first level, but in a blank state. Brobot L-type is fought as the Chapter Boss. Though a Pure Heart is obtained, it is useless until the interlude's Underwhere segment is completed.

Duel of 100[edit]

History[edit]

Background[edit]

According to Garson of the Flipside bar, The Underwhere, 1,500 years prior to the events of Super Paper Mario, the younger sister of Merlumina was entrusted with a Pure Heart, to give to the Sammer Kingdom's ruler to protect. Upon meeting however, Merlumina's sister and the Sammer King fell in love and she stayed behind. The two eventually married and had 100 children. Ever since, the number 100 has been sacred to the Sammer Kingdom.

Chapter 6-1: Sammer Guy Showdown[edit]

Storyline text

Under the looming shadow of The Void, the world slowly drifted toward demise.

But not all hope was lost: two Pure Hearts had yet to be found.

Could our daring heroes find them? Or was the world doomed to be devoured?

Mario, Peach, and Bowser ventured through the next door to find out...
King Sammer declares Duel of 100.

Mario and co. pass through the Blue Door and notice that the Void is much larger in Sammer's Kingdom than anywhere else. They enter a door and find Heronicus running from Jade Blooper, the first Sammer Guy. They battle the Sammer Guy themselves and defeat him, catching the eye of King Sammer. He tells them of a prophecy in his kingdom foretelling that the king's Pure Heart will be given to the one able to defeat all 100 Sammer Guys. The heroes move on to battle the rest of them, but after Round 20, the void begins to grow and an earthquake causes every Sammer Guy to falter. Count Bleck appears to proclaim this world's doom and after an argument between him and Tippi, he leaves and the heroes hurry on to find King Sammer.

Enemies[edit]

The Duel of 100[edit]

After finishing the game, the gang may start the Duel of 100 over. As before, Chapter 6-1 has Rounds 1-25. After defeating Sunshine Flood, Mario and co. will be able to continue on to 6-2.

If the player returns to Sammer's Kingdom after finishing the Duel of 100, King Sammer will be found on Gate 1. He will say the Age of the Sammer Guys ended and that he sent the Sammer Guys on a tropical vacation. He also jokes that he will replace them by kitty robots. When Tiptron uses Tattle on him, she reveals he is planning to turn the Duel of 100 Battle Gates into a water amusement park.

Trivia[edit]

  • During the battle, as the players advance to the next sub-chapter, the number of flags seen on the stage will increase by one (i.e. one flag on every stage of Chapter 6-1, two in Chapter 6-2, and so on).
  • When the player tries to go to Gate 2 after completing the Duel of 100, he or she will discover that the door leading there cannot be used, as if it has become part of the background. When Tattle is used on the door, Tiptron will say the door is sealed, which might be because the other Gates disappeared and they are currently working on the water amusement park there. Oddly, when the player uses Tattle on the very same door while in 3-D, Tiptron will say the player can open it by pressing +Control Pad up, the same as her Tattle of any door.
  • The kingdom appears to be based on Japan, with "Sammer Guy" being a pun on "samurai".
