The Super Marino, also known as the Submarine "Marino", is a submarine owned by Captain T. Ode that appears in Paper Mario: The Origami King.



As told by a Toad in Shangri-Spa, the Super Marino was originally known as the Spa Marino, and was used to take guests to Diamond Island. However, it was stolen by Captain T. Ode, and offered the submarine to King Shroomses in exchange for the king's crown. King Shroomses refused, and arranged to have Captain T. Ode captured and frozen in a block of ice underneath Scorching Sandpaper Desert.

The Super Marino is put on display in the lobby of Musée Champignon, where it remains until Captain T. Ode is found. Captain T. Ode requests the Super Marino to be returned to him, to which the museum's owner allows. With the Super Marino gone, a 1/24 scale model is put in its place.

The Super Marino is attached to the back of the Sea Captain Toad's boat, allowing Mario to use it to dive underwater at certain spots in the Great Sea when Down Button is pressed. While underwater, the Super Marino can be controlled with either motion controls or with the controller's buttons. The arms on the submarine are used to grab treasure chests and other useful items or break rocks on the seafloor. The Super Marino is also used to access Diamond Island, as its arms are used to insert the Diamond Key and open the entrance.
