Violet Passage captain, Paper Mario: Color Splash

The Violet Passage captain is a pirate Toad that appears in Paper Mario: Color Splash. He wears a pirate hat and wields a cutlass. He and his crew admire the legendary captain, and they own the ship he used to get to Fortune Island.

When Mario first enters the Violet Passage, the ship is attacked by Shy Guys, causing the Violet Passage captain to become stuck out in the colorless sea on a barrel. His crew tells Mario to save him, although Huey says that he and Mario need to collect a blue Big Paint Star to repaint the entire sea. When the blue Big Paint Star repaints the sea, the Violet Passage captain rides the barrel back to his ship.

When Mario returns to the Violet Passage, the Violet Passage captain thanks him for saving him. He tells them that he and his crew are preparing to voyage to Fortune Island to get treasure, and that the only way to reach the island is by crossing the Lost Sea, which he does not know how to cross. When Mario finds the Journal Entries that explain how to cross the Lost Sea, the Violet Passage captain tells Mario and Huey that they were written by the legendary captain, and that he had been searching for them. He then decides to set sail, though, as there is no wind, the Fan must be used to make the ship move.

The Violet Passage captain starts to sing, but he is interrupted by a crew member saying that there is a hole in the ship. When Mario tells the Violet Passage captain that everything is under control, they set sail again. When they reach the Lost Sea, the Violet Passage captain teaches Mario how to use the cannons on the ship. When his crew puts up a torn flag on the ship, he tells Mario to take it down or fix it, saying that it makes them look like "thrift-shop pirates."

After they make it through the Lost Sea, the ship is blocked by the whirlpool at Vortex Island. The Violet Passage captain decides to make land at the island, despite Huey wanting to go into the whirlpool to get a Mini Paint Star. On land, he and his crew head over to check out the vortex, though they are blocked by a broken bridge that must be fixed in the parallel world. After Mario stops the vortex, the Violet Passage captain claims that he stopped it himself by wishing for it to go away.

When they leave Vortex Island, they run into a wall of darkness, and they make land on Lighthouse Island to turn the lighthouse on. The Violet Passage captain has Mario go into the lighthouse before him. When Mario exits the lighthouse after fixing it, the Violet Passage captain can be found outside, as he had mistaken the lighthouse keeper's to be a cry for help. When they go back to the ship, the Violet Passage captain spots Fortune Island in the distance.

When they reach Fortune Island, the Violet Passage captain becomes nervous. His crew tells him to not give up, and he decides that he should not be scared. When checking out the island, he discovers that the entrance to the cave is blocked by water, and tells Mario to find a way inside. When Mario opens up a second entrance, the Violet Passage captain tells him to check it out for him, and sets his crew up as a ladder so that Mario has an easier way out of the cave. When the legendary captain follows Mario out of the parallel world, he notices the Violet Passage captain, and they begin talking after the Violet Passage captain recognizes him to be the legendary captain. After Mario successfully defeats Wendy O. Koopa, the Violet Passage captain learns that the treasure had been claimed long before, and becomes saddened that his journey was for nothing. He is cheered up by the legendary captain, who says that he will help the Violet Passage captain become a legend, and the two leave the room.

The Violet Passage captain is seen again during the "Prismatic Rhapsody" dance, posing next to the legendary captain. If Mario returns to Fortune Island, the Violet Passage captain can be seen training with the legendary captain on the beach. They will reveal that the Violet Passage captain's pirate accent is fake.


  • "Land be fine, but me heart belongs to the sea."
  • "So, ye be this...Mario, eh? The Mario who saved this vessel, me crew, and yars truly? Wish I could give ye a reward, but me thanks'll have to do. I owe ye one."
  • "I'll warn ye, mate—I can't guarantee ye safe passage. It be a treacherous journey. To get there, we gotta cross... the Lost Sea. How does one cross the Lost Sea? No clue, mate. They say it be impossible to navigate. That the mists drive men mad. No soul has ever returned."
  • "Good on ye, mate. Let me know what ye find."
  • "To reach Fortune Island and the Violet Isles, we be needin' to cross the Lost Sea. But I be havin' no clue how to cross it."
  • "Ahoy, mate. Ye find anything down in the cabin?"
  • "Blimey! Where'd ye find this?! Been searching for this thing forever. It be a missing page from the legendary captain's journal. It was down there the whole time?!"
  • "They found the captain's journal on this very ship. But the first five pages were missin'. Of course, those be the pages that detail his crossing of the Lost Sea."
  • "Bingo, mate. If ye can collect all five missing journal entries, we should be able to cross the Lost Sea. Let me know if ye find any more pages."
  • "Hurry up and find those other journal entries, mate."
  • "Aye, this be another missin' page. We be one step closer to crossin' the Lost Sea."
  • "Well, blow me down! That's all five journal entries."
  • "Well...yar. In theory. Just as the legendary captain once set sail, so will we... To Fortune Island!"
  • "Yahaharrrr! That be the spirit!"
  • "Ready to set sail, mate?"
  • "Yahaharrr! Ye jellyfish."
  • "Anchors aweigh!"
  • "We be off! Set a course for the Lost Sea!"
  • "Uh..."
  • "Blast it! There be no wind in our sails! Not much we can do about that. We be needin' to wait for the perfect breeze to show up."
  • "We can't push off till our sails are full of wind, mate."
  • "Avast! That be the best part of the song!"
  • "Keep yer pants on, sailor! Bail the water out, and plug the hole. GO!"
  • "*sigh* Can ye go down to the cabin and make sure we don't sink?"
  • "Can ye go check out the hole in the cabin? Thanks, mates."
  • "Aye, yer blank stare tells me there be nothin' to worry about... and that he asked for raise. This ship be a hand-me-down from the legendary captain. Sometimes it shows its age a bit. Let's set off. The Lost Sea be close. Keep yer wits about ye."
  • "This is it, mate. The Lost Sea. This be a good time to show ye how to use this ship. First, the cannons! They can smash massive rocks with one blow. Get close to the cannon and pull to fire a cannonball. Go on—give 'er a pull."
  • "Get close to the cannon and pull to fire a cannonball. Give it a go, mate."
  • "Ye can fire the cannon on the other side, too. Give it a go."
  • "We're about to enter the Lost Sea. The five journal pages ye found will help guide us. If ye want to turn the rudder or return to port, speak to the helmsman."
  • "Talk to the helmsman when ye be ready to enter the Lost Sea."
  • "Check those five journal entries closely an' often. There definitely be some navigation hints in there."
  • "Speak to the helmsman when ye be ready to go."
  • "Avast! What be these mists?"
  • "Yar, we've seen this place before. This be the dreadful nature of the Lost Sea. Don't ye lose hope, mates! We may be hopelessly lost without a cent to our names, but... uh... Aye... Me motivational speeches be needin' some work."
  • "ARRRRRGH! Lost again. Don't lose hope, mates. Fortune awaits!"
  • "Giant rock dead ahead! Turn, ye scallywags!"
  • "C'mere, mate!"
  • "Ye got [number] points, mate."
  • "Ye got [number] points, mate. Just a few more, and ye be havin' a perfect score!"
  • "Ye got [number] points, mate! That be a perfect scorrrrrrrre!"
  • "Ye plundered [number] coin. That be rather sad."
  • "Ye plundered [number] coins."
  • "Ye plundered [number] coins. Just a few more, and ye be gettin' all the booty!"
  • "Ye plundered [number] coins! That's all of 'em, mate! Ever consider a career in piracy?"
  • "A dark mist be upon us. Aye... We be closin' in on the Violet Isles... or they be closin' in on us."
  • "One careless move could cost us everything. Which way should we go, mate?"
  • "We can't be wastin' time with that hole in our hull... Can ye go check on it, mates?"
  • "Who hoisted that tattered flag on the stern? What are we? Thrift-shop pirates? Fix it or take it down, mate."
  • "YA HA HARRRR! The Compass be a pirate's best friend! Right up there with the letter R and vitamin C."
  • "We've done it, mates! We crossed the Lost Sea! We be legends now! On to Fortune Island! Hurry up and grab that thing so we can get movin', will ye?"
  • "What are ye waiting for? Fortune Island awaits! Hurry up!"
  • "Belay the vessel!"
  • "We almost broke the first rule of sailing—never sail into a vortex, no matter how fun it looks."
  • "Sorry, mate. There's no way we can reach it while the sea be raging like this. Let's make land over there for now."
  • "We'll go ashore first and see about that whirlpool. Take yer time and meet us there. We'll try to figure out what to do before ye catch up with us."
  • "YARRRRRRRGH! To fortune!"
  • "We can't go any farther, but I'll be darned if that'll stop us from trying!"
  • "Thar she blows! I've seen a whirlpool or two in my day, but never one this powerful. I can't imagine there's anything in this world we can do about it..."
  • "What are we supposed to do here?!"
  • "Yahaharr! We wished with all our considerable might that the whirlpool would go away, and it did! Scares the spores out me, mate. I didn't ask for this much power! Let's get back to the ship."
  • "The whirlpool be no more. Let's go get that Mini Paint Starrrrrr."
  • "Have you grown fond of Vortex Island, Mario?"
  • "All right...grab that thing, and let's be on our way. We're so close to Fortune Island..."
  • "What ye be waiting for, mate? Grab that Paint Starrrrrrrrrrrrr!"
  • "SHIVER... ME... TIMBERS..."
  • "It suddenly be pitch black ahead! Never seen nothin' like this. Well, if I can navigate me way to the bathroom in the dead of night, I can navigate this. Onward!"
  • "Yar... It be even darker than the way to the little boy's room."
  • "Nope. No. No way. Can't go in there. We're just gonna have to hold it. We couldn't find treasure in there even if we crashed into it! So, what now?"
  • "YAR HAR! How did we miss that?! That be a perfect place for a lighthouse! Of course, it would be better if it was turned on..."
  • "Let's make land over there and see if we can't get that lighthouse up and runnin'."
  • "Marrrrrrrrio, we'll go check out the lighthouse. Take yer time lookin' for your paint thingies. We may even have that ol' house lightin' up the darkness by the time ye catch up with us. Yar har har!"
  • "Move out, mates!"
  • "Oh, there ye are, mate."
  • "We be discussing who should go into the lighthouse first. Tell ye the truth—as captain, I'd like to be first, but I'll leave those honors to you, Mario. Ya har!"
  • "This be a mighty fine lighthouse."
  • "Mario, we just saw a mysterious Toad burst out of the lighthouse. He was wearin' sunglasses. In an unlit lighthouse! How depressed is he?!"
  • "That sad Toad with the sunglasses went back inside the lighthouse. Do ye think he LIVES there? Yar... That be depressin'."
  • "Yar har! He lives! We heard a crazy scream from the top of the lighthouse. I was just bucklin' my swashes to come rescue ye, but here ye are! And ye lit the lighthouse! Good news all around. Now, let's cast off."
  • "We can push off now, so let's go get that Mini Paint Starrrrrrrrrrrr."
  • "So, mate, did Lighthouse Island tickle yer fancy?"
  • "That skull! There be a skull like that in the legendary captain's journal. It must be... Fortune Island! We've crossed the Lost Sea, quelled a massive whirlpool, and dispelled utter darkness, and now we're finally here. We've done it, mates!"
  • "Go on, mate. Fortune awaits."
  • "After all these years... Fortune Island! I can feel me goose bumps gettin' goose bumps! And would you look at that giant skull? Yer not scarin' me off! After that whirlpool and all the darkness, this may be the LEAST scary island we've visited. Hehhh..."
  • "End of the line... Fortune Island..."
  • "Well...I suppose it be time to disembarrrrrk... Yo ho ho..."
  • "Yar har har! Yer right, mates! What kind of captain gets spooked by a puny little 200-foot-tall skull? Not this one! Onward, crew! Let's unearth the treasure of Fortune Island!"
  • "Who's with me?"
  • "YO HO HO!"
  • "Marrrrrrrio!"
  • "I faced me fears head-on and marched right up to this skull-shaped boulder. But there's a small problem. See, there definitely be an opening over there, but we can't get to it! All the guts in the world don't mean squat when paper meets water!"
  • "Clean out yer ears and listen up. We need to find another entrance."
  • "Clean out yer ears and listen up! That entrance be full of water, so we need to find another way."
  • "Aye... Perhaps ye can use that yellow rock to enter the giant, terrifying skull. I mean, we'd do it ourselves, but... we can't jump like ye. Or use Battle Cards or paint hammers, either. So... yar. Check it out for us? Please?"
  • "Good on ye, mates. We'll, uh, guard this small patch of grass while yer gone."
  • "Be careful in that creepy skull, mates."
  • "AHHHHHH! I mean, ARRRRRRRGH. How did ye get out here?! Ye went in there...and ye came out here? So there be multiple entrances!"
  • "In that case, it probably be safe for us to explore a little bit. I set up a... uh... ladder inside for easy access. Feel free to use it."
  • "There be a "ladder" in there. Use it as often as ye like."
  • "Aye, just as I thought... This place be burstin' with creepy secret stuff! Don't look like ye can jump back up here, so be careful. We'll see if we can find another way in while you're doin' yer thing."
  • "Get a move on, mate! We'll see if we can find another way in. Good luck!"
  • "The yellow spots... the yellow vest... the oversized pirate hat... the jumbo cutlass... You're the... You're the..."
  • "Let me get this straight: ye lost yer memory? Ye can't remember nothin' at all?"
  • "Aye... I'll look through the captain's journal to see if I can jog his memory. You an' Huey go find that Paint Star!"
  • "Yarr! So there WAS treasure on this island. Which means...we be too late to be scavengin' it."
  • "So the treasure of Fortune Island be no more. I was too late. All those years of searchin'..."
  • "Blimey! You'll teach me yer legendary ways? That be the best treasure of all! YA HA HARRRR!"
  • "But... you're the reason I started talking like that in the first place! I'm a city boy from Port Prisma!"
