We have met many times, as you two well rememberrrr... The day Bowser ate me along with the giga-carrot was the day our fates crosssssed... heh heh heh heh... it is clear we are connected by a fate that is beyond our poor comprehensionnnn...”
Wisdurm is a character from the game Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. She is the guardian of the first Star Cure but initially appears to Mario and Luigi as the enemy Durmite. Wisdurm has three different appearances in addition to her massive Durmite form: in the overworld she appears as a tiny teal caterpillar, but in battle she can also temporarily grow to a medium-sized pink form, and after her defeat, she reveals her butterfly form to the Mario Bros. In all her forms, she possesses a Birdo-like face, with a sucker for a mouth and what appears to be a bow atop her head. Of all three Star Sages, Wisdurm is the only one encountered in Bowser's body, and the only one to be featured in Challenge Node, as Wisdurm X.
Wisdurm's name comes from "wisdom" and "Durmite", which is still used as the attack target name when Wisdurm is in her small form in battle. She is misnamed in the Prima Strategy Guide's enemy list as "Wise Pillbo".
HistoryBowser along with the giga-carrot, Wisdurm, as "Durmite" attacks the Mario Bros. and upon her defeat, shrinks into a tiny caterpillar and flees. When they are informed that she is the first Sage, Mario and Luigi set off to retrieve the first Star Cure, pursuing Wisdurm to the Energy Hold where she continues to evade them. Eventually she grows tired of being chased around by the brothers and confronts them, at which point they explain the situation and ask for the Star Cure. But rather than simply giving it to them, Wisdurm challenges them to a battle over the ownership of the Star Cure. After being defeated, Wisdurm turns into her true form, a butterfly, and drops the Star Cure so the brothers can resume their adventure.
Wisdurm starts the battle small, but a gauge above her fills as she takes damage. When the gauge is filled, she transforms into her larger, more powerful form. The Mario Bros. can attack the Magical Rod to empty the gauge faster. After the Magical Rod takes enough damage, Wisdurm shrinks down to regular size.
In battle, Wisdurm has the following attacks:
Later in the game, Mario & Luigi can fight a stronger version of Wisdurm called Wisdurm X.
