Super Roshambo (stylized as SUPER Roshambo!) is a rock–paper–scissors minigame that appears in Paper Mario: Color Splash. The minigame takes place at the Roshambo Temples with cheering Toads.


The minigame in action. Here, Mario has won because paper beats rock.

In this game, Mario faces off against three opponents, one at a time. First, players choose one of three Roshambo Cards: rock, scissors, and paper. The cards they've selected will be shown face down. After that, the "Ro-Sham-Bo!" message will appear onscreen, starting with Mario on "RO" and his opponent on "SHAM". On "BO!", the cards flip over. Just like in a standard game: rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, and paper beats rock. If both cards have the same sign, it is a tie and the process repeats until there is a winner. Mario can win coins and a Battle Card if he defeats all of the opponents, but if he loses, then he'll have to play again by either getting a Mini Paint Star or paying a fee to sneak in.
