“Uh-huh... Oh... Oh! You're going to the volcano because you want to save the princess from some bad guys? What...a touching story! Romantic stories like that... just touch a soft spot in this heart of mine. That does it! I can't let you go alone! I, Sushie, will be by your side until the end!”
Sushie, Paper Mario

Sushie is Mario's seventh party member in Paper Mario. She is a Cheep Cheep residing in Yoshi's Village on Lavalava Island.

Her pause menu description states that she "loves romantic stories and cries at the drop of a fin", implying that she is very sensitive and soft-hearted. However, according to the Yoshi children, she is very bossy. Her name is based on the famous Japanese dish.

At Lavalava Island, Mario enters Yoshi's Village and finds that five Yoshi children are missing. Their babysitter, a Cheep Cheep named Sushie, asks Mario to help her find them. When they find the 5 Yoshis, Mario tells Sushie about his quest. Sushie says it's a very romantic story and joins the party. During the fight with Lava Piranha, Sushie's water attacks are quite helpful.

After Mario reaches a dock, he can ride on her back on the surface of water and dive underneath if he chooses.

Sushie has a daughter named Sashimie. During the game, Sashimie sends her mother a letter, stating that she is going to have a baby, meaning Sushie will soon be a grandmother. There is another letter to Sushie from Raphael the Raven at the Post Office.

Goombario can use Tattle on Sushie only when Mario visits Yoshi's Village for the first time but before he leaves the village to catch up with Professor Kolorado.

  • "She's a Cheep Cheep. Her name is Sushie. She's sort of meddlesome. At least that's what the Yoshi kids say. According to them, she tries to control their lives. I think she's just trying to take care of them, but she doesn't seem to be succeeding."

Start Menu description[edit]

  • Sushie's a kindly Cheep Cheep who worries about everyone. She loves romantic stories and cries at the drop of a fin. Press Camera down Button once to ride the waves, again to dive below the surface. Sushie's specialty is the water attack.
