- “Mario can't find the motivation!”
- —Battle text, Paper Mario: Color Splash
Unmotivated is a status effect in Paper Mario: Color Splash, inflicted only by green paint in the battle with Roy. While Mario is in this state, his action command slows down, widening the input window for attacks, similar to the Light G status in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake. Like all other status effects exclusive to said battle, the effect is temporary and only lasts one turn. He also lays on the floor with green paint all over him and with a sad look on his face. While this effect is active, "ROYal Rumble" plays at a slower tempo.
