[[folder: Kersti]]
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kersti_77.jpg]]

A Sticker fairy who is the caretaker of the Royal Stickers.
----
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Kersti is one of a few ''Sticker Star'' characters who doesn't reappear in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam''. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that her home, the Sticker Comet, passes by the Mushroom Kingdom only once every year.
* DisneyDeath: Mario's wish is to revive Kersti after using her as a sticker.
%%* EleventhHourSuperPower
%%* ExpositionFairy
* HeroicSacrifice: Turns herself into a sticker in the final battle, so as to lend Mario enough power to defeat Bowser. Her sacrifice doesn't [[{{Pun}} stick]], as Mario wishes her back to life afterwards.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's mostly nice, but boy does she have a short fuse.
* NoIndoorVoice: Has a habit of screaming at the top of her lungs with every other sentence, while simultaneously proclaiming how much of a lady she is.
* ProperLady: She seems to think of herself as one, but doesn't quite have the right temperament.
* PunnyName: Kersti is an anagram of "sticker", just with the "c" removed.
* StaticCharacter: Even after being kidnapped twice, Kersti's personality stays the same through the whole game.
* SwallowedWhole: Kersti gets swallowed by Petey Piranha in the last level of World 5. This means that you can't use Paperization and the Battle Spin feature until you get Kersti back.

[[folder: Wiggler/Flutter]]
This particular Wiggler seems to be very childlike and cannot wait to grow up. He lives in the forest in his very own treehouse. He later grows up into a Flutter so he gives Mario a ride past Gate Cliff.
----
* ADogNamedDog: As evident above, this Wiggler doesn't actually have a ''name''-name. This continues even into his Flutter transformation.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Wiggler is very nice and absentminded most of the time. However, he gets ''very'' upset over the poison polluting his forest and island. Before getting to the final area in World 3, he storms out of his tree house and beats Mario to the beach.
* JournalComic: If you take the Wiggler segments to particular areas in the forest, then Wiggler's diary (in third-person) would include drawings of those events.
* TheLoad: The Wiggler Segments are pretty annoying to deal with when they're separated from Wiggler himself.
* MiniBoss: You fight each of Wiggler's segments after Kamek separated Wiggler from his main body.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: It is rare that you get to see Wiggler being angry. Which is strange since Wigglers are known for being cute, but temperamental.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Usually refers to himself as Wiggler, and later Flutter, instead of using first person vocabulary.
* TreehouseOfFun: He lives in a treehouse.

[[folder:The "Thing" Stickers]]

->'''List of Things:''' Sewing Scissors, Hair Shears, Scissors , Tailor Shears, Bellows, Paper Fan, '''''Fan''''', Mini Vacuum, Upright Vacuum, Vacuum, Watering Can, Faucet , '''''Teapot''''', Trumpet, Violin, Guitar, Newspaper, Toy Bat, Bat, Square Can, '''''Basin''''', Drum, Light Bulb, Flashlight, Searchlight, Watch Battery, '''''D-Cell Battery''''', Car Battery, Billiard Ball, Curling Stone, Bowling Ball, Trophy, Cell Phone, Jackhammer, Radiator, '''''Hair Dryer''''', Oven, '''''Magnifying Glass''''', Matches, Lighter, Shaved Ice, Air Conditioner, Refrigerator, Soda, Squirt Gun, Rubber Ducky, Powder Puff, Sponge, Car Sponge, Pillow, Bed, Luxurious Bed, Tape, Thumbtack, Stapler, Fishhook, '''''Balloon''''', Pocket Watch, '''''Cat-o-Luck''''', High Heel, Goat, Turkey, Cake, Boom Box[[note]]'''''Bold-Italic''''' items reappear in ''Color Splash''.[[/note]]

----
* ArtImitatesArt: Several "Great Wave[s] off Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai can be seen during the Cat-o-Luck animation in ''Color Splash''.
* BilingualBonus: The Battery actually sings in German: "Listen up you fools, Listen to the battery!"
* BlandNameProduct: The Battery is [[ShockAndAwe appropriately]] called "Thunder".
* BlowYouAway: The Fan, on a ''planet-size'' scale in ''Color Splash''.
* TheCameo: Birdo appears during the Balloons card animation.
* CameraAbuse: The Fan in ''Sticker Star'' [[BlowYouAway blows the opponents away]] who ends up pinned against the screen.
* DisneyAcidSequence: The Cat-o-Luck in ''Color Splash''. It is mostly a PlayedForLaughs ClicheStorm since it is [[NWordPrivileges a Japanese game]], as its animation includes everything it can like CherryBlossoms, sushis, and [[EverythingsBetterWithSamurai samurais]] to make it look like it is coming straight from a WidgetSeries.
* DropTheWashtub: The Basin.
* ManekiNeko: The Cat-o-Luck.
* MusicalAssassin: The Battery summons lightning bolts by singing {{Opera}}.
* ShockAndAwe: The Battery card.
* SameCharacterButDifferent: Some Things return in ''Color Splash'' but have a completely different effect:
** The Magnifying Glass goes from being [[SolarPoweredMagnifyingGlass Solar-Powered]] to [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever making Mario giant]].
** The Balloon becomes "[[SequelEscalation Balloon]]'''[[SpellMyNameWithAnS s]]'''" in ''Color Splash'', and goes from [[StuffBlowingUp exploding]] to [[AllBalloonsHaveHelium lifting enemies]] [[EscapeBattleTechnique out of battle]].
* ShoutOut: The Fan in ''Color Splash'' is very reminiscent of the famous last shot from ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''.
* SuddenNameChange: Since there is only one type of battery Thing in ''Color Splash'', the D-Cell Battery is simplified as just "Battery".

[[folder: Megasparkle Goomba]]
[[quoteright:200:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Megasparkle_Goomba_8215.png]]

Well, more like 16 Goombas, with one of them being the boss and having his mind warped by the Royal Sticker.
----
* CharacterTics: He keeps mentioning the words "shiny" and "glittering." Really though, that's pretty much how every boss acts like under the control of a Royal Sticker.
* CoolCrown: The Royal Sticker on his head.
* KingMook: Of the Goombas.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Megasparkle Goomba's cohorts decide that they'd rather be regular Goombas rather than keep working for him.

[[folder: Tower Power Pokey]]
[[quoteright:94:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TowerPowerPokey_3313.png]]

A Pokey on top of Drybake Stadium that has been under the control of the Royal Sticker. He was once just a regular Pokey before Kamek placed the Royal Sticker on top of him and split the stadium into three parts.
----
* BatterUp: His major weakness once all of his segments have been exposed.
* CharacterTics: He keeps mentioning the word "shiny". As with Megasparkle Goomba, this isn't a unique trait.
* FlunkyBoss: He may summon two Pokeys (the ones that you can actually jump on) to help him. Of course, you will have to defeat them first before getting Tower Power Pokey.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: His weakness is basically why Drybake Stadium is called that in the first place. There's also the hint of "PLAY BALL!" at the beginning of the battle. [[FiveSecondForeshadowing However, you don't find this out until the roof of said level, rather than the floors preceding it]].
* KingMook: Of the Pokeys.
* UniquenessDecay: A second Tower Power Pokey appears in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam''. This one looks like a normal Pokey with four small spikes on every segment. Also, he's much smaller than the original.
* WakeUpCallBoss: He has 300 HP (compared to the first boss, which has less than 100 HP) 10 Defense, and can deal 5 to 10 damage per turn. Also, if you didn't realize that a certain Thing needs to be used to defeat him, you'll be in serious trouble.
%%* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Mizzter Blizzard]]
->''"I was disappearing...From ice to fog...Returning to the sky...I just wanted a body that wouldn't melt..."''

A Mr. Blizzard who wished for a body that would never melt. When the Royal Sticker landed on him, he got his wish... at the expense of his sanity.
----
* ADogNamedDog: ZigzaggedTrope. While it is the name of his species, it's never been spelled like this before.
* AntiVillain: Of the {{Woobie}} variety. He only wished he cannot melt.
%%* AffablyEvil
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: His backstory is that he was a regular Mr. Blizzard who was melting and wanted to live. He wished for a body that could survive spring... and the Royal Sticker landed on his head.
* ButtMonkey: He was melting. He prayed for a longer life, and was given it at the cost of his sanity. He was then given a thorough beating by Mario due to the insanity. Then he melted right after regaining his sanity.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Mizzter Blizzard is one of the few ''Sticker Star'' characters who doesn't reappear in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam''.
* DyingAsYourself: Technically, he doesn't die, he melts and lives on as water vapor, until Winter comes.
* AnIcePerson: He's a snowman, who has a series of shells that are made of even more snow, and he is the boss of the ice world. It's practically assumed.
* GoodAllAlong: Can we honestly say he was evil?
* MatryoshkaObject: The Bowser Snow Statue shatters as it accumulates damage, revealing further, smaller statues within.
* PosthumousNarration: The section of the storybook that appears after beating Mizzter Blizzard is told in the first person, and it's obviously Mizzter Blizzard speaking. It's unknown if he narrated the rest of the book, though.
* {{Snowlem}}: An absolutely massive one. He is actually multiple Snowlems, which are encased inside of each other.
%%* TragicMonster
* WalkingSpoiler: For the sole reason that he actually has a personality and isn't evil.
* WeWillMeetAgain: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. After regaining his sanity and retaining his consciousness as air moisture, he says he'd like to see Mario again, when he's rebuilt as a Snowman come Winter.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Like all other bosses. Then you beat him and, for the first time, there's a case of a boss showing the extent of the Royal Stickers' power over one's mind. It's rather sad.
[[/folder]]

!!Other Characters

[[folder:Sling-a-Thing Toad]]
The owner of the "Sling-a-Thing" operation.
----
* BlackMarket: Knows the existence of one.
* CharacterTics: Mentions the word "perky" a lot.
* EverybodyKnewAlready: If you already found the secret Thing market Toad already, then he'll still tell you as if you don't know what to do if you don't have any Things.
* NoNameGiven: As with most other ''Sticker Star''-introduced characters, [=SaT=] Toad doesn't actually have a ''name''-name.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Travelling Toad]]
A recurring Toad who seems to travel the world and gets beaten up by goons in every region he's traveled to.
----
* BegoneBribe: One way to get rid of the goons. Of course, you can choose to fight them.
* BossInMooksClothing: The Shy Guys bullying the Toad. They are a lot tougher than they appear to be. And the reward for helping him that time is a Secret Door sticker.
** While that fight is the toughest, most of the fights involving him are special. One introduces the Two-Fold Goombas, one is the only fight with a Multi Fold Paragoomba, and a fight with Spear Guys that SEEMS normal, but there's really a huge crowd of them watching. The Poison Bloopers seem to be the exception.
* HerCodeNameWasMarySue: He sends postcards to the Toad watching his house, which detail how he was able to defeat multiple foes that menaced him on his adventures. In actuality, Mario is the one who defeats everyone that harassed him.
* NoNameGiven: As with most other ''Sticker Star''-introduced characters, the travelling Toad doesn't actually have a ''name''-name.
* UnreliableExpositor: The postcards he sent to a friend of his are correct except for the parts where he claimed that he beat up a bunch of goons. The truth is that the goons were picking on him and that it was Mario who saved him so the stories end up being a bit exaggerated. He later admits that he was lying to a friend of his.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sticker Museum Curator]]
A Toad who is in charge of a museum dedicated for information regarding all kinds of stickers.
----
* CollectionSidequest: The instigator of one. He asks Mario to bring him one copy of every sticker he can find; that includes Thing Stickers.
* NoNameGiven: As with most other ''Sticker Star''-introduced characters, the Curator doesn't actually have a ''name''-name.
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: He advertises his Sticker Museum as the greatest Sticker Museum of the Mushroom Kingdom as it is the only one.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: You can leave him stuck under the fountain for the entire game as you may not get the hint to use paperization to free him.
* TheWikiRule: [[InUniverse His museum uses the "Sticky Wiki"]] with the entries written by an intern of his.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shady Toad]]
A Toad who hosts a secret black market for all Things.
----
* BlackMarket: Pretty much a spoof of this.
* NoNameGiven: As with most other ''Sticker Star''-introduced characters, Shady Toad doesn't actually have a ''name''-name.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Oasis Toad]]
A Toad who lives at Damp Oasis.
----
* CaptainObvious: Tells Mario that you need water to travel in the desert.
* NoNameGiven: As with most other ''Sticker Star''-introduced characters, Oasis Toad doesn't actually have a ''name''-name.
* TotallyRadical: Speaks like one once the oasis has been filled.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:"Snifit or Whiffit" Host]]
The host of the game show "Snifit or Whiffit". He returns in the next installment where he now host "Snifit or Whiffit: Seabed Edition".
----
* ADogNamedDog: The host's name is "Snifit" and he's a Snifit. Otherwise, he doesn't actually have a ''name''-name.
* FriendlyEnemy: He's clearly against Mario as his questions reveal that he thinks that Bowser is straight-up cooler than Mario. The only thing that's considered harmful that he did to Mario is filling the room with poison gas.
* LadiesAndGerms: "Gentlebuddies" and "Goodbuddies' are variants of his introduction.
* NiceGuy: He acts like one but some dialogue of his such as "unpaid Snifit interns" suggest he can be a JerkAss too.
* StudioAudience: According to one of the answers to his questions, there are 30 Snifits in the audience.
* WhackAMonster: One of his challenges is to whack 20 "unpaid Snifit interns."
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Enigmansion Boos]]
100 Boos sealed in the Book of Sealing who, thanks to Kamek, are free to roam and haunt the Enigmansion. They're actually not that scary and more fun but that doesn't stop the owner from requesting Mario to help seal the Boos back. Thanks to Kamek again, the sealed Boos now form a Big Boo, which gets defeated by Mario.
----
* BackgroundMusicOverride: The Disco Boos do this to the battle theme.
* BossInMooksClothing: The Boo Stack should not be underestimated if you want the battle to end quickly. Luckily, the obvious hints in the bookshelves should tell you to use a certain sticker.
* EldritchAbomination: The monsters that the Book of Sealing seal...[[SubvertedTrope is not this]]. The way the steward describes the Boos made them sound pretty horrible, even though that they're more fun rather than spooky.
* GratuitousDiscoSequence: At one point, Mario interacts with a picture frame with a Boo in it. It's then revealed to be 5 Boos... and then disco music starts playing.
* OneHitPointWonder: One of the Boos is crumpled in the trash, and has only 1 HP. Any attack will do him in.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Enigmansion Steward]]
A Purple Toad who is the steward of the Enigmansion. He was the servant of the previous steward of the Enigmansion until he died, making him the new owner through inheritance. Once the owner suddenly comes back from the dead via photograph, he becomes his servant.
----
* GhostlyChill: A Boo is pretty much the main reason why he's feeling cold in front of a campfire.
* {{Irony}}: One of the papers you can find in World 5-1 in the huge trash pile is an ad for a new manservant. After the Enigmansion has been cleared of Boos, the steward thinks of hiring a new servant. He becomes one again to his old master.
* NiceGuy: He's pretty hospitable and says that not sitting down with him to relax is against his hospitality.
* NoNameGiven: As with most other ''Sticker Star''-introduced characters, the steward doesn't actually have a ''name''-name. [[InvokedTrope As a matter of fact]], he introduces himself as just a humble servant.
* PortraitPaintingPeephole: A portrait of him has one sort of peephole where if Mario looks away from it, a Boo will pop out to replace his face.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Enigmansion Forebear]]
A Toad who was the ski lift operator for 30 years until he and his servant moved to the Enigmansion. He died, with his servant becoming the new owner. He is revived with an old photograph of his via Paperization and becomes the owner of the Enigmansion again, with the steward being his servant again.
----
* BackFromTheDead: Thanks to Mario and Kersti using Paperization, he returns to life.
* MilitarySalute: Does one to Mario after he and Kersti hop on to one of the ski lifts.
%%* NiceGuy
* NostalgiaFilter: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. A music player that plays a tune that sounds very old-fashioned is liked by his servant but the owner, who is older than him, doesn't like it that much and wonders why the current generation likes it.
* NoNameGiven: As with most other ''Sticker Star''-introduced characters, the Forebearer doesn't actually have a ''name''-name.
[[/folder]]

!''VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash''

!!Allies

[[folder:Huey]]
A paint bucket-like creature who helps Mario restore Color to Prism Island.
----
* AnimateInanimateObject: He has the appearance of a living paint bucket.
* ButNowIMustGo: In a rather somber moment in an otherwise bright and cheerful game, Huey absorbs all the black paint covering Bowser's castle and goes off to a faraway place to make sure it doesn't cause trouble again.
* MoneyFetish: Huey really has a thing for obtaining and keeping wealth- he expects others to pay for him, like Peach for a possible burger. Meanwhile, he expresses outrage when the pay load of Mondo Woods' giant coin is equal to a normal one.
* SealedEvilInACan: Huey's entire purpose is to encapsulate the corrosive and corrupting black paint, but he doesn't reveal it to Mario directly until the end. Huey himself is quite benevolent, essentially the "can" (literally and figuratively) to the black paint's "evil".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The "Thing" Cards]]
%%Some tropes might have to be moved to the Sticker Star folder if the corresponding Things debuted in this game.
A bunch of 3-dimensional items found here and there on Prism Island.

->'''List of Things debuting in ''Color Splash'':''' Fire Extinguisher, Plunger, Lemon, Piggy Bank, Bone, Bottle Opener, Ice Pick, Turnip, Instant Camera, Compass, Cork, Washing Machine, Lightbulb, Salt and Pepper, Charcoal Grill, Megaphone, Claw Hammer, Recorder, Disco Ball
----
* DanceBattler: The Piggy Bank hurts the opponents with some sick break-dance moves.
* MythologyGag: The Flute plays the same melody heard while playing the same instrument in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3''. Like in those games, the melody summons a [[BlowYouAway tornado]].
* ThePowerOfRock: The Hammer is literally a metal-head, and slams the enemies with electric guitar riffs going in the background.
[[/folder]]

!!Villains

[[folder:Pry Guy]]
->''"When [[MookHorrorShow bad guys]] appear...''\\
''[[BadassCreed he fights without fear!]]"''

A regular Shy Guy who found the wannabe-hero Toad's Journal and got inspired by it.
----
* BossInMookClothing: The Journal gives him better stats and it can catch an off-guard player with 10 HP attacks. Other than that, he is a regular --and still rather weak-- Shy Guy. (In comparison, he has the same stats and behavior as the later encountered Shield Guys, making him some sort of ArtifactMook.)
* CallingYourAttacks: ''[[ThrowTheBookAtThem "HARDCOVER JUSTICE MISSILE!"]]''
* FearlessFool: Following the motto of the Journal and forgetting all sense of MookChivalry, he jumps on Mario and draws first paint stain.
* HeroicWannabe: He is inspired by the Justice Toad's writings, unaware that he is a HeroicWannabe too.
* MookHorrorShow: This Shy Guy, despite thinking of himself as a hero, calls Mario a "bad guy" and attacks him on the spot. And why wouldn't he? From his point of view, he is a [[WhatMeasureIsAMook mook slaughterer]]!
* NoSneakAttacks: {{Averted|Trope}}. All the regular bad guys of the game can sneak attack Mario, but this is the only scripted one. Weird in a sense as Mario definitely saw him first, it's just that the Shy Guy was feeling [[LeeroyJenkins courageous]] at this instant.
* SecretDiary: The Hero's Journal, his {{improvised|Weapon}} weapon and shield.
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: He fights with the Hero’s Journal.
* UniqueEnemy: Has his [[NominalImportance own title]] and lines of dialogue, and also has the unique ability of [[ThrowTheBookAtThem smashing you with a book]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shunned Guy]]
->''"Paint and suffering..."''
->''"My favorite color is [[WordSaladHorror slurple]]!"''

A terrifying Shy Guy found in the depths of the Indigo Underground.
----
* AchillesHeel: He is only vulnerable to [[KillItWithFire fire]]. And "Thing" cards too, he isn't ''that'' invulnerable.
* BodyHorror: Not only was he literally sucking the life out of a Green Ranger Toad when you find him, he then [[ExorcistHead folds backwards]] and creepily crawls towards Mario.
* BossInMookClothing: Looks like a regular Shy Guy, but is actually the MiniBoss of the level.
* CrateExpectations: He is hidden in one in the Sunset Express.
* DegradedBoss: He wasn't [[MiniBoss that much]] of a boss to begin with, but he comes back several times, and now the player knows his only weakness. (That plus the "StrongAsTheyNeedToBe" effect caused by the GameplayAndStorySegregation.)
* ExorcistHead: The {{Horror Trope|s}} implied by his backwards folding.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: When you meet him again, your hammer has upgraded and is able to OneHitKill him with a preemptive strike. But if you fight him normally, the hammer cards are useless again like in the first encounter.
* InvincibleMinorMinion: After defeating dozens of Shy Guys of [[UndergroundMonkey various forms]], not being able to defeat this creepy but otherwise unremarkable Slurp Guy makes him even more {{uncanny|Valley}}.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: After a few turns wasting your attacks on him, he will eventually [[WhatAnIdiot plainly spit out loud his own weakness]] that would [[AnticlimaxBoss defeat him in only one well done attack]]. The thing is some players are too focused on the gamepad and don't pay attention to the enemy lines and might never notice it...
* KillItWithFire: The (almost) only way to destroy this monstrosity.
* KungFuProofMook: Regular attacks like the jump and the hammer won't work against him. Justified, as his folding allows him to absorb any stomp without damaging him.
* LifeDrinker: Like all Slurp Guys, he sucks the [[LiquidAssets paint]] out of Mario and the Toad. The horror of the scene only makes this even more uncomfortable.
* OhCrap: Even Mario can't stay unfazed by the Shunned Guy, and starts the fight trying (and failing) to escape.
* MonsterCloset: How you find him at Tangerino Grill.
* NoSell: He is immune to almost all the cards in the game.
* PsychoStrings: [[https://youtu.be/srk_SK071AE His own theme song.]]
* RockPaperScissors: He is the [[RuleOfThree third]] and final opponent (which means you have [[LuckBasedMission no clues about how to beat him]]) of the third Roshambo Temple.
* ShoutOut: Of all things, to ''Film/TheGrudge'' (or rather the original ''Film/{{Juon}}''). Didn't expect to see ''that'' kind of reference in a Nintendo game, did you?
* UniformityException: The only difference between this guy and a regular Slurp Guy is that he is folded and ''[[NightmareFuel suddenly crawls backwards towards you]]''.
* UniqueEnemy: Even though you meet him several times after the initial confrontation in the Indigo Underground, it is implied that it is always the same as you never met multiple occurrences of him at the same time.
* UnwinnableByDesign: If you (unknowingly) wasted all your fire-based and "Thing" cards before the fight, well you're screwed.
* WallCrawl: Can do that after you find him in the Sunset Express.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Shy Bandit]]
->''"It's the cops!"''

An exiled Shy Guy who has donned a mask (atop his Shy Guy mask) and taken to a life of thievery. He occasionally appears on the world map, where he will mark a location with his calling card. If you don't head him off or defeat him, he'll suck the paint out of the location, reverting all of its colorless spots.
----
* ActionInitiative: The Shy Bandit will always attack first, and his opening move will always be to either shoot paint at your eyes or summon {{Mooks}}.
* AssistCharacter: As with most enemies, you can acquire a battle card of him and summon him as an ally. If he defeats an enemy, the defeated enemy has a very high chance of dropping a card of their own after the battle.
* BanditMook: Though rather than steal your items, he'll steal all the hard work you made in repainting a level.
* BlowGun: Unlike most Slurp Guys, who only use their straws to suck ''in'' paint, the Shy Bandit will also do the reverse.
* CallingCard: He marks a level icon with his calling card, which lets you know where to race him to. Beating him there and claiming the card will cause him to leave without a fight.
* DominoMask: He wears a domino mask ''over'' his standard-issue Shy Guy mask, ostensibly to hide his identity.
* AHandfulForAnEye: When the battle starts, sometimes he will immediately attempt to blind you with a shot of paint to the eyes. If you get hit, your subsequent attacks will miss.
* MiniBoss: A randomly-recurring one.
* OverworldNotToScale: Since you fight him on the world map, the scenery accompanying your battle will be amusingly-tiny versions of levels.
* PhantomThief: Self-styled as such, though his getup is somewhat lacking.
* RandomEncounters: He has a small chance of appearing whenever you exit a level to the world map.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shady Sledge Bro's Gang]]
A group of thugs led by a Shady Sledge Bro, desperately looking for "it".
----
* BystanderSyndrome: Even though it ''is'' their problem and that they would be perfectly able to fight together and thus be stronger, the three remaining members of the team are just standing in a corner and watching Mario kick their leader's butt. Justified as the Shady Sledge Bro told his gang to let him handle Mario.
* CoolShades: The [[PunnyName Shady]] Sledge Bro.
* DecapitatedArmy: The rest of the gang don't even try to continue the fight once Mario defeated the Sledge Bro.
* DropTheHammer: The Sledge Bro's weapon of choice, obviously.
* LargeAndInCharge: The Shady Sledge Bro is the boss of the gang and, as all [[GroundPound Sledge Bros]], quite a FatBastard.
* LastWords: When he is defeated, the Sledge Bros expresses his regrets that he never had the opportunity to sit on "it".
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Their team is composed of a [[BlatantBurglar Shy Guy]], a [[FeatheredFiend Paratroopa]], a {{Spike|Shooter}}, and a [[TheBrute Sledge Bro]].
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When their leader is defeated, the rest of the gang [[RunOrDie flees]] without further ado.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Laundry Guy]]
A Shy Guy who watches over the Laundry Machine in Vortex Island.
----
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: Swings a magazine as a way to attack.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Steak]]
A living Steak that the VIP passenger wants Mario to serve for him at the Tangerino Grill.
----
* FoodEatsYou: Attacks Mario by whacking him when encountered.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: The steak is actually rendered in 3D, as opposed to being paper like the rest of the characters.
* PuzzleBoss: In order to progress the game, you have to cook the steak for the VIP by tenderizing it (with hammers), and using specific Things in a certain order.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Emerald Circus Performers]]
A line of enemy circus performers that are fought in the order of the Unicycle Shy Guys, the two Wild Dino Rhinos and their Animal Trainer Shy Guy, the Buzzy Beetle Tower, and the Trampoline Shy Guys.

* BeastMaster: The Animal Trainer Shy Guy, who can calm the Wild Dino Rhinos down. When the Trainer is defeated, the Dino Rhinos go mad in rage until another Shy Guy comes to calm them down.
* PuzzleBoss: The Trampoline Shy Guys, who can only be defeated by pounding the trampoline with a hammer before jumping on them. When jumped without pounding the trampoline, they will jump high up in the air before Mario could have a chance to stomp them.
[[/folder]]



!!Other Characters

[[folder:Big Paint Stars]]
Six Stars that grants paint for Prism Island. When Bower accidentally gets possessed by the Black Paint, he scatters the Stars across Prism Island. After all the Big Stars have been collected, they create a rainbow bridge to Black Bowser's Castle.
----
* LivingMacguffin: The Stars are revealed to be sentient, which they communicate with others though their minds.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Rescue Squad V]]
A group of Toads dedicated to helping the people on Prism Island. There are five teams in all, each a different color.
----
* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Can't find any of the Toads? Try talking to the chief in Port Prisma. He'll tell you if you've missed anyone, as well as where they were missed.
* {{Expy}}: The group as a whole is a reference to the Franchise/PowerRangers.
* HeroicWannabe: You can meet one Toad that wants to join the Rescue Squad, but is turned down since he's been shrunk down. You can help him later get back to normal size to join the squad.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Piper and His Friends]]
A group of childhood friends that have separated over the years. Mario can help them reunite in his journey by restoring their color and watch them reunite as a seed grows in an old hangout spot.
----
* BackFromTheDead: Apparently, before the start of the game, Piper had wilted away and turned brown. By planting the seed, the friends were able to grow Piper a new body.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: All of Piper's friends are colored differently and placed in a colored location matching them (besides Purp, who starts the whole quest).
* {{Foreshadowing}}: As the quest continues, more memories shared the friends give hints that Piper may not be another Toad like the rest of his friends...

[[folder:The Chosen Toads]]
[[PowerTrio Three special Toads]] who are quite literally the key to open the gate to Crimson Tower.
----
* ChromaticArrangement: Red, Blue and Yellow. Since they don't really have any name, it still is the [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience best way to describe them]].
* CoolKey: They are living keys with impressive telekinetic powers. Also, they spell "K-E-Y" when they are side by side.
* DisneyDeath: When they "fit" into the gate, Huey salutes their HeroicSacrifice. But they immediately open windows in the door to prove that they are fine, and are even seen at the DancePartyEnding of the Red Star.
* {{Flight}}: They gain that ability with their powers, and directly go to the Crimson Tower this way.
* GlowingEyes: Their eyes start to glow when their powers eventually awaken.
* HerCodeNameWasMarySue: The Justice Toad's description of himself in the [[SecretDiary Hero's Journal]] is a bit exaggerated.
-->''"[[BlatantLies Plus, he looks really, REALLY cool, and everyone wants to be best friends with him.]]"''
* HeroicWannabe: The red Toad dreams of being a super-hero. His wish is eventually fulfilled when he awakens his powers.
* IdentityAmnesia: The yellow Toad (a.k.a. the Mountain Sage) lost his memories after being attacked by a Slurp Guy who sucked some of the color off of his hat.
* ImplausibleBoardingSkills: When a giant wave destroys his boat, the blue Toad uses a piece of it as an improvised board.
* MacGuffinPersonReveal: Mario and Huey had to discover which Toads were the Chosen Ones, as the three Toads weren't even aware of their hidden potential.
* MacGuffinSuperPerson: They have incredible powers, but ultimately [[ReedRichardsIsUseless only serve to open a door]].
* MindOverMatter: The red Toad is able to move a Star to Mario's reach, the blue one freezes a tsunami in place, and the yellow one ''[[PersonOfMassDestruction destroys an entire mountain]]''.

* {{Teleportation}}: The yellow Toad first demonstrates his powers by doing this.
* AWizardDidIt: It's never explained why they are the Chosen Ones, where did they powers came from, or from where comes this prophecy.

[[folder:The Five Fun Guys]]
Five green Toads and their manager who are part of the Oceanfest celebration at Bloo Bay Beach.
----
* ClamTrap: One of the Guys is hidden in one. It creases his "hair" due to the fact that it closed on him before he was ready.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: It doesn't matter how many times you try, you just ''can't'' win at the "Toad Shuffle" without FixingTheGame, even if you know that they are cheating and try to pick a random one.
* FixingTheGame: The Five Fun Guys are actually cheating during the "Toad Shuffle". You have to paint the Toad(s) before playing to prove that the game is rigged.
* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals: The five green Toads look exactly the same, which is then used for a ShellGame. You could argue that [[YouALLLookFamiliar all the Toads look the same anyway]].
* MoralMyopia: You can paint the Toads to help you win without even knowing that the game was rigged in the first place. Then, Huey calls the manager out for cheating despite the fact that ''you were cheating in the first place''.
* PunnyName: They are "fungi". [[DontExplainTheJoke 'Cause they're]] [[MushroomMan mushrooms.]]
* RedHerring: The folded Toad looks like a hint for the following "Toad Shuffle", but it is just to throw the player off even more and make him realize that there is something fishy going on.
* {{Scandalgate}}: When they are caught, the manager is afraid to see "Shufflegate" spreading in the news and gives the prize to Mario and Huey in exchange for their silence.
* ShellGame: The "Toad Shuffle", in order to win the key to Blissful Beach. It is more difficult that it looks, and for [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard good reasons]].
* UniformityException: After the "Toad-and-Go Seek", one of the Guys' head is a bit folded; a detail that may [[RedHerring or may not]] be useful later.

[[folder:The Professor & Princess]]
An archeologist and his pet Chain Chomp, living at Chateau Chanterelle.
----
* AdventurerArchaeologist: {{Averted|Trope}}. The Professor is just a regular archaeologist.
* AssistCharacter: When you use the [[StockFemurBone Bone]] "Thing", it's actually Princess who comes for it and rolls over the enemies. Required to beat Iggy Koopa's {{chariot|Race}}s.
* AttackHello: It's difficult to say if Princess is trying to be friendly to his master or is just [[UngratefulBastard plainly assaulting him]].
* BadVibrations: The earth is shaking when you arrive at Marmalade Valley, but you soon discover that it is no earthquake, but Princess going through the walls.
* CanisMajor: Princess, as most adult [[AllAnimalsAreDogs Chain Chomps]] in the Mushroom Kingdom.
* DynamicEntry: Is "destroying a mountain" dynamic enough for you?
* DinosaurDoggieBone: Princess was frolicking in the archaeological site of Marmalade Valley for this reason.
* DubNameChange: Princess is called "Chompinette" in French.
* FluffyTamer: The Professor, though it took care of Princess since she was a baby.
* FluffyTheTerrible: Princess, a giant cardboard Chain Chomp.

* IndyEscape: You have to escape Princess' roaring rolling rampage when you first meet her.
* TheJuggernaut: ''Nothing'' will stop Princess: not a crate, not a scaffolding, and certainly not Mario...
* MomentKiller: Huey was having a touching {{Bromance}} talk with Mario when Princess brutally interrupted it. At the same time, it established Huey as a LovableCoward.
-->'''Huey:''' I just want you to know that, should something catastrophic happen, I will protect you. I would literally throw my body in front of--\\
''(Princess smashes through a wall and [[ImmediateSelfContradiction Huey takes to his heels]])''
* MoodSwinger: The professor goes from extreme sadness to extreme happiness when his Princess is involved.
* MythologyGag: The pink bow on Princess is a reference to one of Madame Meow-Meow's "dog" in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening''.
* NonStandardGameOver: Being rolled over by Princess is a OneHitKO.
* RedHerring: The first hints of Princess (a tiny chain and pictures of her when she was a puppy) make you believe that she is a [[MisterMuffykins small Chomp]]. [[IndyEscape Then you meet her...]]
* ShooTheDog: {{Subverted|Trope}}. The professor eventually realizes that Princess has grown too big and should be free to frolic wherever she wants, but on the other side of it Princess seems [[UngratefulBastard completely remorseless]] and was already gone long before his decision.
* StockAnimalName: After all, EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses.
* StrongerWithAge: Old pictures of Princess show her smaller than a Toad, regular [[PaperPeople paper-sized]], and only able to tickle her master with her bite. Now, she is more than four times the size of Mario and large as five cardboard sheets, destroying everything in her path!
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Outside of the name, you can tell that Princess is female since she has a classical [[PinkMeansFeminine pink]] ribbon on her head.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Ghostly Toads]]
The ghosts of 6 tea-enthusiast Toads haunting the Dark Bloo Inn.
----
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: The end of their sidequest. If you actually bring back the teapot and finish their party, they will leave this mortal realm appeased and free the hotel from their curse. (Plus the manager gives you a deck capacity upgrade.)
* BigBoosHaunt: The Dark Bloo Inn is a {{Haunted|House}} [[HellHotel Hotel]] unknowingly cursed by the ghostly Toads. The whole level is a GroundhogDayLoop puzzle, and completing it restores the place to its former [[CueTheSun shining]] glory.
* BlindWithoutEm: The glasses wearing ghost.
* CreepyChangingPainting: Subverted. Despite the [[HauntedHouse setting]], the context of the painting now showing the six Toads is here to [[RuleOfSymbolism show]] that they found peace and [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence went to a better place]].
* FailedASpotCheck: One of the ghosts just can't find his glasses. They're on his head.
* GhostlyGlide: How they move.

* InvisibleMonsters: You can't see not hear the Toads until you painted them.
* MistakenForDog: One of the ghosts calls his pet Paratroopa a bird. More mysterious is the fact that, despite annoyed to be called like that, it still [[StockholmSyndrome willingly]] goes into its narrow birdcage.
* MonochromeApparition: They appear in white and blue. But if the paint used to make them appear is to be trusted, they were orange when they were alive. However, the painting depicts them as regular red Toads.
* OpaqueNerdGlasses: The glasses of one of the ghosts.
* {{Poltergeist}}: Several of them move furniture all around.
* RaysFromHeaven: Some appear after they finally enjoyed some tea, and they float away to a better place.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Captain & his Crew]]
A Toad who goes on a voyage with a trio of Toads through the Violet Isles.
----

A yellow Toad who runs as the head chef in Tangerino Grill.

A Shy Guy that Mario encounters on the Sunset Express when Larry takes it over.
----
* PunchClockVillain: Deconstructed. He is a nice guy and talks to Mario about the nature of his life and wonders why he fights for Bowser like he does. Then he realises that the next time they meet it will be as enemies, and if you do meet again, he dies.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: You do not actually have to meet him again and kill him. In fact, it is actually quite difficult to encounter him as he is one of the Shy Guys on trapeze in Mossrock Theater and requires you to wait for him to appear.
* WhatMeasureIsAMook: A nice Shy Guy who questions his life choices and talks to Mario. He can still die like any other mook though.

[[folder: Kersti]]
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kersti_77.jpg]]

A Sticker fairy who is the caretaker of the Royal Stickers.
----
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Kersti is one of a few ''Sticker Star'' characters who doesn't reappear in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam''. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that her home, the Sticker Comet, passes by the Mushroom Kingdom only once every year.
''Characters/PaperMarioStickerStar''
* DisneyDeath: Mario's wish is to revive Kersti after using her as a sticker.
%%* EleventhHourSuperPower
%%* ExpositionFairy
* HeroicSacrifice: Turns herself into a sticker in the final battle, so as to lend Mario enough power to defeat Bowser. Her sacrifice doesn't [[{{Pun}} stick]], as Mario wishes her back to life afterwards.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's mostly nice, but boy does she have a short fuse.
* NoIndoorVoice: Has a habit of screaming at the top of her lungs with every other sentence, while simultaneously proclaiming how much of a lady she is.
* ProperLady: She seems to think of herself as one, but doesn't quite have the right temperament.
* PunnyName: Kersti is an anagram of "sticker", just with the "c" removed.
* StaticCharacter: Even after being kidnapped twice, Kersti's personality stays the same through the whole game.
* SwallowedWhole: Kersti gets swallowed by Petey Piranha in the last level of World 5. This means that you can't use Paperization and the Battle Spin feature until you get Kersti back.

[[folder: Wiggler/Flutter]]
This particular Wiggler seems to be very childlike and cannot wait to grow up. He lives in the forest in his very own treehouse. He later grows up into a Flutter so he gives Mario a ride past Gate Cliff.
----
* ADogNamedDog: As evident above, this Wiggler doesn't actually have a ''name''-name. This continues even into his Flutter transformation.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: Wiggler is very nice and absentminded most of the time. However, he gets ''very'' upset over the poison polluting his forest and island. Before getting to the final area in World 3, he storms out of his tree house and beats Mario to the beach.
* JournalComic: If you take the Wiggler segments to particular areas in the forest, then Wiggler's diary (in third-person) would include drawings of those events.
* TheLoad: The Wiggler Segments are pretty annoying to deal with when they're separated from Wiggler himself.
* MiniBoss: You fight each of Wiggler's segments after Kamek separated Wiggler from his main body.
* OutOfCharacterMoment: It is rare that you get to see Wiggler being angry. Which is strange since Wigglers are known for being cute, but temperamental.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Usually refers to himself as Wiggler, and later Flutter, instead of using first person vocabulary.
* TreehouseOfFun: He lives in a treehouse.

----
* ArtImitatesArt: Several "Great Wave[s] off Kanagawa" by Katsushika Hokusai can be seen during the Cat-o-Luck animation in ''Color Splash''.
* BilingualBonus: The Battery actually sings in German: "Listen up you fools, Listen to the battery!"
* BlandNameProduct: The Battery is [[ShockAndAwe appropriately]] called "Thunder".
* BlowYouAway: The Fan, on a ''planet-size'' scale in ''Color Splash''.
* TheCameo: Birdo appears during the Balloons card animation.
* CameraAbuse: The Fan in ''Sticker Star'' [[BlowYouAway blows the opponents away]] who ends up pinned against the screen.
* DisneyAcidSequence: The Cat-o-Luck in ''Color Splash''. It is mostly a PlayedForLaughs ClicheStorm since it is [[NWordPrivileges a Japanese game]], as its animation includes everything it can like CherryBlossoms, sushis, and [[EverythingsBetterWithSamurai samurais]] to make it look like it is coming straight from a WidgetSeries.
* DropTheWashtub: The Basin.
* ManekiNeko: The Cat-o-Luck.
* MusicalAssassin: The Battery summons lightning bolts by singing {{Opera}}.
* ShockAndAwe: The Battery card.
* SameCharacterButDifferent: Some Things return in ''Color Splash'' but have a completely different effect:
** The Magnifying Glass goes from being [[SolarPoweredMagnifyingGlass Solar-Powered]] to [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever making Mario giant]].
** The Balloon becomes "[[SequelEscalation Balloon]]'''[[SpellMyNameWithAnS s]]'''" in ''Color Splash'', and goes from [[StuffBlowingUp exploding]] to [[AllBalloonsHaveHelium lifting enemies]] [[EscapeBattleTechnique out of battle]].
* ShoutOut: The Fan in ''Color Splash'' is very reminiscent of the famous last shot from ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''.
* SuddenNameChange: Since there is only one type of battery Thing in ''Color Splash'', the D-Cell Battery is simplified as just "Battery".

Well, more like 16 Goombas, with one of them being the boss and having his mind warped by the Royal Sticker.
----
* CharacterTics: He keeps mentioning the words "shiny" and "glittering." Really though, that's pretty much how every boss acts like under the control of a Royal Sticker.
* CoolCrown: The Royal Sticker on his head.
* KingMook: Of the Goombas.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Megasparkle Goomba's cohorts decide that they'd rather be regular Goombas rather than keep working for him.

[[folder: Tower Power Pokey]]
[[quoteright:94:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TowerPowerPokey_3313.png]]

A Pokey on top of Drybake Stadium that has been under the control of the Royal Sticker. He was once just a regular Pokey before Kamek placed the Royal Sticker on top of him and split the stadium into three parts.
----
* BatterUp: His major weakness once all of his segments have been exposed.
* CharacterTics: He keeps mentioning the word "shiny". As with Megasparkle Goomba, this isn't a unique trait.
* FlunkyBoss: He may summon two Pokeys (the ones that you can actually jump on) to help him. Of course, you will have to defeat them first before getting Tower Power Pokey.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: His weakness is basically why Drybake Stadium is called that in the first place. There's also the hint of "PLAY BALL!" at the beginning of the battle. [[FiveSecondForeshadowing However, you don't find this out until the roof of said level, rather than the floors preceding it]].
* KingMook: Of the Pokeys.
* UniquenessDecay: A second Tower Power Pokey appears in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam''. This one looks like a normal Pokey with four small spikes on every segment. Also, he's much smaller than the original.
* WakeUpCallBoss: He has 300 HP (compared to the first boss, which has less than 100 HP) 10 Defense, and can deal 5 to 10 damage per turn. Also, if you didn't realize that a certain Thing needs to be used to defeat him, you'll be in serious trouble.

[[folder: Mizzter Blizzard]]
->''"I was disappearing...From ice to fog...Returning to the sky...I just wanted a body that wouldn't melt..."''

A Mr. Blizzard who wished for a body that would never melt. When the Royal Sticker landed on him, he got his wish... at the expense of his sanity.
----
* ADogNamedDog: ZigzaggedTrope. While it is the name of his species, it's never been spelled like this before.
* AntiVillain: Of the {{Woobie}} variety. He only wished he cannot melt.
%%* AffablyEvil
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: His backstory is that he was a regular Mr. Blizzard who was melting and wanted to live. He wished for a body that could survive spring... and the Royal Sticker landed on his head.
* ButtMonkey: He was melting. He prayed for a longer life, and was given it at the cost of his sanity. He was then given a thorough beating by Mario due to the insanity. Then he melted right after regaining his sanity.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Mizzter Blizzard is one of the few ''Sticker Star'' characters who doesn't reappear in ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiPaperJam''.
* DyingAsYourself: Technically, he doesn't die, he melts and lives on as water vapor, until Winter comes.
* AnIcePerson: He's a snowman, who has a series of shells that are made of even more snow, and he is the boss of the ice world. It's practically assumed.
* GoodAllAlong: Can we honestly say he was evil?
* MatryoshkaObject: The Bowser Snow Statue shatters as it accumulates damage, revealing further, smaller statues within.
* PosthumousNarration: The section of the storybook that appears after beating Mizzter Blizzard is told in the first person, and it's obviously Mizzter Blizzard speaking. It's unknown if he narrated the rest of the book, though.
* {{Snowlem}}: An absolutely massive one. He is actually multiple Snowlems, which are encased inside of each other.
%%* TragicMonster
* WalkingSpoiler: For the sole reason that he actually has a personality and isn't evil.
* WeWillMeetAgain: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. After regaining his sanity and retaining his consciousness as air moisture, he says he'd like to see Mario again, when he's rebuilt as a Snowman come Winter.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Like all other bosses. Then you beat him and, for the first time, there's a case of a boss showing the extent of the Royal Stickers' power over one's mind. It's rather sad.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Travelling Toad]]
A recurring Toad who seems to travel the world and gets beaten up by goons in every region he's traveled to.
----
* BegoneBribe: One way to get rid of the goons. Of course, you can choose to fight them.
* BossInMooksClothing: The Shy Guys bullying the Toad. They are a lot tougher than they appear to be. And the reward for helping him that time is a Secret Door sticker.
** While that fight is the toughest, most of the fights involving him are special. One introduces the Two-Fold Goombas, one is the only fight with a Multi Fold Paragoomba, and a fight with Spear Guys that SEEMS normal, but there's really a huge crowd of them watching. The Poison Bloopers seem to be the exception.
* HerCodeNameWasMarySue: He sends postcards to the Toad watching his house, which detail how he was able to defeat multiple foes that menaced him on his adventures. In actuality, Mario is the one who defeats everyone that harassed him.
* NoNameGiven: As with most other ''Sticker Star''-introduced characters, the travelling Toad doesn't actually have a ''name''-name.
* UnreliableExpositor: The postcards he sent to a friend of his are correct except for the parts where he claimed that he beat up a bunch of goons. The truth is that the goons were picking on him and that it was Mario who saved him so the stories end up being a bit exaggerated. He later admits that he was lying to a friend of his.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sticker Museum Curator]]

* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: He advertises his Sticker Museum as the greatest Sticker Museum of the Mushroom Kingdom as it is the only one.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: You can leave him stuck under the fountain for the entire game as you may not get the hint to use paperization to free him.
* TheWikiRule: [[InUniverse His museum uses the "Sticky Wiki"]] with the entries written by an intern of his.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shady Toad]]
A Toad who hosts a secret black market for all Things.

The host of the game show "Snifit or Whiffit". He returns in the next installment where he now host "Snifit or Whiffit: Seabed Edition".
----
* ADogNamedDog: The host's name is "Snifit" and he's a Snifit. Otherwise, he doesn't actually have a ''name''-name.
* FriendlyEnemy: He's clearly against Mario as his questions reveal that he thinks that Bowser is straight-up cooler than Mario. The only thing that's considered harmful that he did to Mario is filling the room with poison gas.
* LadiesAndGerms: "Gentlebuddies" and "Goodbuddies' are variants of his introduction.
* NiceGuy: He acts like one but some dialogue of his such as "unpaid Snifit interns" suggest he can be a JerkAss too.
* StudioAudience: According to one of the answers to his questions, there are 30 Snifits in the audience.
* WhackAMonster: One of his challenges is to whack 20 "unpaid Snifit interns."

[[folder:Enigmansion Boos]]
100 Boos sealed in the Book of Sealing who, thanks to Kamek, are free to roam and haunt the Enigmansion. They're actually not that scary and more fun but that doesn't stop the owner from requesting Mario to help seal the Boos back. Thanks to Kamek again, the sealed Boos now form a Big Boo, which gets defeated by Mario.
----
* BackgroundMusicOverride: The Disco Boos do this to the battle theme.
* BossInMooksClothing: The Boo Stack should not be underestimated if you want the battle to end quickly. Luckily, the obvious hints in the bookshelves should tell you to use a certain sticker.
* EldritchAbomination: The monsters that the Book of Sealing seal...[[SubvertedTrope is not this]]. The way the steward describes the Boos made them sound pretty horrible, even though that they're more fun rather than spooky.
* GratuitousDiscoSequence: At one point, Mario interacts with a picture frame with a Boo in it. It's then revealed to be 5 Boos... and then disco music starts playing.
* OneHitPointWonder: One of the Boos is crumpled in the trash, and has only 1 HP. Any attack will do him in.

[[folder:Enigmansion Steward]]
A Purple Toad who is the steward of the Enigmansion. He was the servant of the previous steward of the Enigmansion until he died, making him the new owner through inheritance. Once the owner suddenly comes back from the dead via photograph, he becomes his servant.
----
* GhostlyChill: A Boo is pretty much the main reason why he's feeling cold in front of a campfire.
* {{Irony}}: One of the papers you can find in World 5-1 in the huge trash pile is an ad for a new manservant. After the Enigmansion has been cleared of Boos, the steward thinks of hiring a new servant. He becomes one again to his old master.
* NiceGuy: He's pretty hospitable and says that not sitting down with him to relax is against his hospitality.
* NoNameGiven: As with most other ''Sticker Star''-introduced characters, the steward doesn't actually have a ''name''-name. [[InvokedTrope As a matter of fact]], he introduces himself as just a humble servant.
* PortraitPaintingPeephole: A portrait of him has one sort of peephole where if Mario looks away from it, a Boo will pop out to replace his face.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Enigmansion Forebear]]
A Toad who was the ski lift operator for 30 years until he and his servant moved to the Enigmansion. He died, with his servant becoming the new owner. He is revived with an old photograph of his via Paperization and becomes the owner of the Enigmansion again, with the steward being his servant again.
----
* BackFromTheDead: Thanks to Mario and Kersti using Paperization, he returns to life.
* MilitarySalute: Does one to Mario after he and Kersti hop on to one of the ski lifts.
%%* NiceGuy
* NostalgiaFilter: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. A music player that plays a tune that sounds very old-fashioned is liked by his servant but the owner, who is older than him, doesn't like it that much and wonders why the current generation likes it.
* NoNameGiven: As with most other ''Sticker Star''-introduced characters, the Forebearer doesn't actually have a ''name''-name.

!''VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash''

!!Allies

[[folder:Huey]]
A paint bucket-like creature who helps Mario restore Color to Prism Island.
----
* AnimateInanimateObject: He has the appearance of a living paint bucket.
* ButNowIMustGo: In a rather somber moment in an otherwise bright and cheerful game, Huey absorbs all the black paint covering Bowser's castle and goes off to a faraway place to make sure it doesn't cause trouble again.
* MoneyFetish: Huey really has a thing for obtaining and keeping wealth- he expects others to pay for him, like Peach for a possible burger. Meanwhile, he expresses outrage when the pay load of Mondo Woods' giant coin is equal to a normal one.
* SealedEvilInACan: Huey's entire purpose is to encapsulate the corrosive and corrupting black paint, but he doesn't reveal it to Mario directly until the end. Huey himself is quite benevolent, essentially the "can" (literally and figuratively) to the black paint's "evil".
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The "Thing" Cards]]
%%Some tropes might have to be moved to the Sticker Star folder if the corresponding Things debuted in this game.
A bunch of 3-dimensional items found here and there on Prism Island.

->'''List of Things debuting in ''Color Splash'':''' Fire Extinguisher, Plunger, Lemon, Piggy Bank, Bone, Bottle Opener, Ice Pick, Turnip, Instant Camera, Compass, Cork, Washing Machine, Lightbulb, Salt and Pepper, Charcoal Grill, Megaphone, Claw Hammer, Recorder, Disco Ball
----
* DanceBattler: The Piggy Bank hurts the opponents with some sick break-dance moves.
* MythologyGag: The Flute plays the same melody heard while playing the same instrument in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaI'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3''. Like in those games, the melody summons a [[BlowYouAway tornado]].
* ThePowerOfRock: The Hammer is literally a metal-head, and slams the enemies with electric guitar riffs going in the background.
[[/folder]]

!!Villains

[[folder:Pry Guy]]
->''"When [[MookHorrorShow bad guys]] appear...''\\
''[[BadassCreed he fights without fear!]]"''

A regular Shy Guy who found the wannabe-hero Toad's Journal and got inspired by it.
----
* BossInMookClothing: The Journal gives him better stats and it can catch an off-guard player with 10 HP attacks. Other than that, he is a regular --and still rather weak-- Shy Guy. (In comparison, he has the same stats and behavior as the later encountered Shield Guys, making him some sort of ArtifactMook.)
* CallingYourAttacks: ''[[ThrowTheBookAtThem "HARDCOVER JUSTICE MISSILE!"]]''
* FearlessFool: Following the motto of the Journal and forgetting all sense of MookChivalry, he jumps on Mario and draws first paint stain.
* HeroicWannabe: He is inspired by the Justice Toad's writings, unaware that he is a HeroicWannabe too.
* MookHorrorShow: This Shy Guy, despite thinking of himself as a hero, calls Mario a "bad guy" and attacks him on the spot. And why wouldn't he? From his point of view, he is a [[WhatMeasureIsAMook mook slaughterer]]!
* NoSneakAttacks: {{Averted|Trope}}. All the regular bad guys of the game can sneak attack Mario, but this is the only scripted one. Weird in a sense as Mario definitely saw him first, it's just that the Shy Guy was feeling [[LeeroyJenkins courageous]] at this instant.
* SecretDiary: The Hero's Journal, his {{improvised|Weapon}} weapon and shield.
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: He fights with the Hero’s Journal.
* UniqueEnemy: Has his [[NominalImportance own title]] and lines of dialogue, and also has the unique ability of [[ThrowTheBookAtThem smashing you with a book]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shunned Guy]]
->''"Paint and suffering..."''
->''"My favorite color is [[WordSaladHorror slurple]]!"''

A terrifying Shy Guy found in the depths of the Indigo Underground.
----
* AchillesHeel: He is only vulnerable to [[KillItWithFire fire]]. And "Thing" cards too, he isn't ''that'' invulnerable.
* BodyHorror: Not only was he literally sucking the life out of a Green Ranger Toad when you find him, he then [[ExorcistHead folds backwards]] and creepily crawls towards Mario.
* BossInMookClothing: Looks like a regular Shy Guy, but is actually the MiniBoss of the level.
* CrateExpectations: He is hidden in one in the Sunset Express.
* DegradedBoss: He wasn't [[MiniBoss that much]] of a boss to begin with, but he comes back several times, and now the player knows his only weakness. (That plus the "StrongAsTheyNeedToBe" effect caused by the GameplayAndStorySegregation.)
* ExorcistHead: The {{Horror Trope|s}} implied by his backwards folding.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: When you meet him again, your hammer has upgraded and is able to OneHitKill him with a preemptive strike. But if you fight him normally, the hammer cards are useless again like in the first encounter.
* InvincibleMinorMinion: After defeating dozens of Shy Guys of [[UndergroundMonkey various forms]], not being able to defeat this creepy but otherwise unremarkable Slurp Guy makes him even more {{uncanny|Valley}}.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: After a few turns wasting your attacks on him, he will eventually [[WhatAnIdiot plainly spit out loud his own weakness]] that would [[AnticlimaxBoss defeat him in only one well done attack]]. The thing is some players are too focused on the gamepad and don't pay attention to the enemy lines and might never notice it...
* KillItWithFire: The (almost) only way to destroy this monstrosity.
* KungFuProofMook: Regular attacks like the jump and the hammer won't work against him. Justified, as his folding allows him to absorb any stomp without damaging him.
* LifeDrinker: Like all Slurp Guys, he sucks the [[LiquidAssets paint]] out of Mario and the Toad. The horror of the scene only makes this even more uncomfortable.
* OhCrap: Even Mario can't stay unfazed by the Shunned Guy, and starts the fight trying (and failing) to escape.
* MonsterCloset: How you find him at Tangerino Grill.
* NoSell: He is immune to almost all the cards in the game.
* PsychoStrings: [[https://youtu.be/srk_SK071AE His own theme song.]]
* RockPaperScissors: He is the [[RuleOfThree third]] and final opponent (which means you have [[LuckBasedMission no clues about how to beat him]]) of the third Roshambo Temple.
* ShoutOut: Of all things, to ''Film/TheGrudge'' (or rather the original ''Film/{{Juon}}''). Didn't expect to see ''that'' kind of reference in a Nintendo game, did you?
* UniformityException: The only difference between this guy and a regular Slurp Guy is that he is folded and ''[[NightmareFuel suddenly crawls backwards towards you]]''.
* UniqueEnemy: Even though you meet him several times after the initial confrontation in the Indigo Underground, it is implied that it is always the same as you never met multiple occurrences of him at the same time.
* UnwinnableByDesign: If you (unknowingly) wasted all your fire-based and "Thing" cards before the fight, well you're screwed.
* WallCrawl: Can do that after you find him in the Sunset Express.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Shy Bandit]]
->''"It's the cops!"''

An exiled Shy Guy who has donned a mask (atop his Shy Guy mask) and taken to a life of thievery. He occasionally appears on the world map, where he will mark a location with his calling card. If you don't head him off or defeat him, he'll suck the paint out of the location, reverting all of its colorless spots.
----
* ActionInitiative: The Shy Bandit will always attack first, and his opening move will always be to either shoot paint at your eyes or summon {{Mooks}}.
* AssistCharacter: As with most enemies, you can acquire a battle card of him and summon him as an ally. If he defeats an enemy, the defeated enemy has a very high chance of dropping a card of their own after the battle.
* BanditMook: Though rather than steal your items, he'll steal all the hard work you made in repainting a level.
* BlowGun: Unlike most Slurp Guys, who only use their straws to suck ''in'' paint, the Shy Bandit will also do the reverse.
* CallingCard: He marks a level icon with his calling card, which lets you know where to race him to. Beating him there and claiming the card will cause him to leave without a fight.
* DominoMask: He wears a domino mask ''over'' his standard-issue Shy Guy mask, ostensibly to hide his identity.
* AHandfulForAnEye: When the battle starts, sometimes he will immediately attempt to blind you with a shot of paint to the eyes. If you get hit, your subsequent attacks will miss.
* MiniBoss: A randomly-recurring one.
* OverworldNotToScale: Since you fight him on the world map, the scenery accompanying your battle will be amusingly-tiny versions of levels.
* PhantomThief: Self-styled as such, though his getup is somewhat lacking.
* RandomEncounters: He has a small chance of appearing whenever you exit a level to the world map.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Shady Sledge Bro's Gang]]
A group of thugs led by a Shady Sledge Bro, desperately looking for "it".
----
* BystanderSyndrome: Even though it ''is'' their problem and that they would be perfectly able to fight together and thus be stronger, the three remaining members of the team are just standing in a corner and watching Mario kick their leader's butt. Justified as the Shady Sledge Bro told his gang to let him handle Mario.
* CoolShades: The [[PunnyName Shady]] Sledge Bro.
* DecapitatedArmy: The rest of the gang don't even try to continue the fight once Mario defeated the Sledge Bro.
* DropTheHammer: The Sledge Bro's weapon of choice, obviously.
* LargeAndInCharge: The Shady Sledge Bro is the boss of the gang and, as all [[GroundPound Sledge Bros]], quite a FatBastard.
* LastWords: When he is defeated, the Sledge Bros expresses his regrets that he never had the opportunity to sit on "it".
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Their team is composed of a [[BlatantBurglar Shy Guy]], a [[FeatheredFiend Paratroopa]], a {{Spike|Shooter}}, and a [[TheBrute Sledge Bro]].
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When their leader is defeated, the rest of the gang [[RunOrDie flees]] without further ado.

----
* ThrowTheBookAtThem: Swings a magazine as a way to attack.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Steak]]
A living Steak that the VIP passenger wants Mario to serve for him at the Tangerino Grill.
----
* FoodEatsYou: Attacks Mario by whacking him when encountered.
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: The steak is actually rendered in 3D, as opposed to being paper like the rest of the characters.
* PuzzleBoss: In order to progress the game, you have to cook the steak for the VIP by tenderizing it (with hammers), and using specific Things in a certain order.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Emerald Circus Performers]]
A line of enemy circus performers that are fought in the order of the Unicycle Shy Guys, the two Wild Dino Rhinos and their Animal Trainer Shy Guy, the Buzzy Beetle Tower, and the Trampoline Shy Guys.

* BeastMaster: The Animal Trainer Shy Guy, who can calm the Wild Dino Rhinos down. When the Trainer is defeated, the Dino Rhinos go mad in rage until another Shy Guy comes to calm them down.
* PuzzleBoss: The Trampoline Shy Guys, who can only be defeated by pounding the trampoline with a hammer before jumping on them. When jumped without pounding the trampoline, they will jump high up in the air before Mario could have a chance to stomp them.
[[/folder]]

A group of Toads dedicated to helping the people on Prism Island. There are five teams in all, each a different color.

* {{Expy}}: The group as a whole is a reference to the Franchise/PowerRangers.
* HeroicWannabe: You can meet one Toad that wants to join the Rescue Squad, but is turned down since he's been shrunk down. You can help him later get back to normal size to join the squad.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Piper and His Friends]]
A group of childhood friends that have separated over the years. Mario can help them reunite in his journey by restoring their color and watch them reunite as a seed grows in an old hangout spot.
----
* BackFromTheDead: Apparently, before the start of the game, Piper had wilted away and turned brown. By planting the seed, the friends were able to grow Piper a new body.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: All of Piper's friends are colored differently and placed in a colored location matching them (besides Purp, who starts the whole quest).
* {{Foreshadowing}}: As the quest continues, more memories shared the friends give hints that Piper may not be another Toad like the rest of his friends...
* InterspeciesFriendship: Piper is revealed to be a Ptooie friends with Toads.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WVrbXGZFGo This theme whenever the group reminiscence about Piper.]]
* MeaningfulName: Besides Piper, all of the Toads are named after the color they are.
* OddNameOut: The 6 friends of the group: Purp, Redd, Greenie, Bloo, Yella, and Piper.

[[folder:Know-It-All Toad]]
A Toad who gives hints on what "Thing" you need to progress.
----
* HintSystem: If you need a Thing to progress, but you don't know which one, you can talk to him to get some cryptic advice on the Thing you need. He'll also let you know if you're carrying it at the moment.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Know-It-All Toad's hint-giving abilities make him a functionally similar character to Merlon (as he was in the first two games, at least).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Wringer]]
A Toad who sells "Things" to squeeze.
----
* BlackMarket: He runs one in the docks of Port Prisma, selling Things from a barrel.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Chosen Toads]]
[[PowerTrio Three special Toads]] who are quite literally the key to open the gate to Crimson Tower.
----
* ChromaticArrangement: Red, Blue and Yellow. Since they don't really have any name, it still is the [[ColourCodedForYourConvenience best way to describe them]].
* CoolKey: They are living keys with impressive telekinetic powers. Also, they spell "K-E-Y" when they are side by side.
* DisneyDeath: When they "fit" into the gate, Huey salutes their HeroicSacrifice. But they immediately open windows in the door to prove that they are fine, and are even seen at the DancePartyEnding of the Red Star.
* {{Flight}}: They gain that ability with their powers, and directly go to the Crimson Tower this way.
* GlowingEyes: Their eyes start to glow when their powers eventually awaken.
* HerCodeNameWasMarySue: The Justice Toad's description of himself in the [[SecretDiary Hero's Journal]] is a bit exaggerated.
-->''"[[BlatantLies Plus, he looks really, REALLY cool, and everyone wants to be best friends with him.]]"''
* HeroicWannabe: The red Toad dreams of being a super-hero. His wish is eventually fulfilled when he awakens his powers.
* IdentityAmnesia: The yellow Toad (a.k.a. the Mountain Sage) lost his memories after being attacked by a Slurp Guy who sucked some of the color off of his hat.
* ImplausibleBoardingSkills: When a giant wave destroys his boat, the blue Toad uses a piece of it as an improvised board.
* MacGuffinPersonReveal: Mario and Huey had to discover which Toads were the Chosen Ones, as the three Toads weren't even aware of their hidden potential.
* MacGuffinSuperPerson: They have incredible powers, but ultimately [[ReedRichardsIsUseless only serve to open a door]].
* MindOverMatter: The red Toad is able to move a Star to Mario's reach, the blue one freezes a tsunami in place, and the yellow one ''[[PersonOfMassDestruction destroys an entire mountain]]''.
* NakedFirstImpression: You meet the red Toad without his clothes and need to find them before he can help you.
* NiceMeanAndInBetween: The red one is nice and heroic, the blue one is grumpy, and the yellow one is wise and neutral.
* NotSoPhonyPsychic: The revelation than the red Toad is actually a Chosen One comes after several scenes where he ridiculed himself.
* RobotAntennae: The keys on their heads are interpreted at this at first. It is unknown how much they are related to their newfound abilities.
* SmallTownBoredom: The blue Toad wanted to go on an adventure because he was sick of the happy-go-luck attitude of the locals.
* {{Teleportation}}: The yellow Toad first demonstrates his powers by doing this.
* AWizardDidIt: It's never explained why they are the Chosen Ones, where did they powers came from, or from where comes this prophecy.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Five Fun Guys]]
Five green Toads and their manager who are part of the Oceanfest celebration at Bloo Bay Beach.
----
* ClamTrap: One of the Guys is hidden in one. It creases his "hair" due to the fact that it closed on him before he was ready.
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: It doesn't matter how many times you try, you just ''can't'' win at the "Toad Shuffle" without FixingTheGame, even if you know that they are cheating and try to pick a random one.
* FixingTheGame: The Five Fun Guys are actually cheating during the "Toad Shuffle". You have to paint the Toad(s) before playing to prove that the game is rigged.
* InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals: The five green Toads look exactly the same, which is then used for a ShellGame. You could argue that [[YouALLLookFamiliar all the Toads look the same anyway]].
* MoralMyopia: You can paint the Toads to help you win without even knowing that the game was rigged in the first place. Then, Huey calls the manager out for cheating despite the fact that ''you were cheating in the first place''.
* PunnyName: They are "fungi". [[DontExplainTheJoke 'Cause they're]] [[MushroomMan mushrooms.]]
* RedHerring: The folded Toad looks like a hint for the following "Toad Shuffle", but it is just to throw the player off even more and make him realize that there is something fishy going on.
* {{Scandalgate}}: When they are caught, the manager is afraid to see "Shufflegate" spreading in the news and gives the prize to Mario and Huey in exchange for their silence.
* ShellGame: The "Toad Shuffle", in order to win the key to Blissful Beach. It is more difficult that it looks, and for [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard good reasons]].
* UniformityException: After the "Toad-and-Go Seek", one of the Guys' head is a bit folded; a detail that may [[RedHerring or may not]] be useful later.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Professor & Princess]]
An archeologist and his pet Chain Chomp, living at Chateau Chanterelle.
----
* AdventurerArchaeologist: {{Averted|Trope}}. The Professor is just a regular archaeologist.
* AssistCharacter: When you use the [[StockFemurBone Bone]] "Thing", it's actually Princess who comes for it and rolls over the enemies. Required to beat Iggy Koopa's {{chariot|Race}}s.
* AttackHello: It's difficult to say if Princess is trying to be friendly to his master or is just [[UngratefulBastard plainly assaulting him]].
* BadVibrations: The earth is shaking when you arrive at Marmalade Valley, but you soon discover that it is no earthquake, but Princess going through the walls.
* CanisMajor: Princess, as most adult [[AllAnimalsAreDogs Chain Chomps]] in the Mushroom Kingdom.
* DynamicEntry: Is "destroying a mountain" dynamic enough for you?
* DinosaurDoggieBone: Princess was frolicking in the archaeological site of Marmalade Valley for this reason.
* DubNameChange: Princess is called "Chompinette" in French.
* FluffyTamer: The Professor, though it took care of Princess since she was a baby.
* FluffyTheTerrible: Princess, a giant cardboard Chain Chomp.
* InelegantBlubbering: The professor when his Princess is missing. He becomes a sobbing mess literally [[PaperPeople flat]] on the ground.
* IndyEscape: You have to escape Princess' roaring rolling rampage when you first meet her.
* TheJuggernaut: ''Nothing'' will stop Princess: not a crate, not a scaffolding, and certainly not Mario...
* MomentKiller: Huey was having a touching {{Bromance}} talk with Mario when Princess brutally interrupted it. At the same time, it established Huey as a LovableCoward.
-->'''Huey:''' I just want you to know that, should something catastrophic happen, I will protect you. I would literally throw my body in front of--\\
''(Princess smashes through a wall and [[ImmediateSelfContradiction Huey takes to his heels]])''
* MoodSwinger: The professor goes from extreme sadness to extreme happiness when his Princess is involved.
* MythologyGag: The pink bow on Princess is a reference to one of Madame Meow-Meow's "dog" in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening''.
* NonStandardGameOver: Being rolled over by Princess is a OneHitKO.
* RedHerring: The first hints of Princess (a tiny chain and pictures of her when she was a puppy) make you believe that she is a [[MisterMuffykins small Chomp]]. [[IndyEscape Then you meet her...]]
* ShooTheDog: {{Subverted|Trope}}. The professor eventually realizes that Princess has grown too big and should be free to frolic wherever she wants, but on the other side of it Princess seems [[UngratefulBastard completely remorseless]] and was already gone long before his decision.
* StockAnimalName: After all, EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses.
* StrongerWithAge: Old pictures of Princess show her smaller than a Toad, regular [[PaperPeople paper-sized]], and only able to tickle her master with her bite. Now, she is more than four times the size of Mario and large as five cardboard sheets, destroying everything in her path!
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Outside of the name, you can tell that Princess is female since she has a classical [[PinkMeansFeminine pink]] ribbon on her head.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Ghostly Toads]]
The ghosts of 6 tea-enthusiast Toads haunting the Dark Bloo Inn.
----
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: The end of their sidequest. If you actually bring back the teapot and finish their party, they will leave this mortal realm appeased and free the hotel from their curse. (Plus the manager gives you a deck capacity upgrade.)
* BigBoosHaunt: The Dark Bloo Inn is a {{Haunted|House}} [[HellHotel Hotel]] unknowingly cursed by the ghostly Toads. The whole level is a GroundhogDayLoop puzzle, and completing it restores the place to its former [[CueTheSun shining]] glory.
* BlindWithoutEm: The glasses wearing ghost.
* CreepyChangingPainting: Subverted. Despite the [[HauntedHouse setting]], the context of the painting now showing the six Toads is here to [[RuleOfSymbolism show]] that they found peace and [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence went to a better place]].
* FailedASpotCheck: One of the ghosts just can't find his glasses. They're on his head.
* GhostlyGlide: How they move.
* GroundhogDayLoop: If they are not all reunited within 3 hours, the time resets itself to 12 o'clock and all the achievements in the level are lost.
* InvisibleMonsters: You can't see not hear the Toads until you painted them.
* MistakenForDog: One of the ghosts calls his pet Paratroopa a bird. More mysterious is the fact that, despite annoyed to be called like that, it still [[StockholmSyndrome willingly]] goes into its narrow birdcage.
* MonochromeApparition: They appear in white and blue. But if the paint used to make them appear is to be trusted, they were orange when they were alive. However, the painting depicts them as regular red Toads.
* OpaqueNerdGlasses: The glasses of one of the ghosts.
* {{Poltergeist}}: Several of them move furniture all around.
* RaysFromHeaven: Some appear after they finally enjoyed some tea, and they float away to a better place.
* SpookySilentLibrary: One of the Toads creates havoc in the library because he can't find his favorite book (''Tea Recipe Book'').
* TheTropeWithoutATitle: "It". Actually a Yoshi.
* UnfinishedBusiness: The Toads haunt the hotel because they didn't have the opportunity to do their long-awaited tea-party.
* UniformityException: The Toad with the glasses.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:The Captain & his Crew]]
A Toad who goes on a voyage with a trio of Toads through the Violet Isles.
----
* TalkLikeAPirate: The Captain talks like this throughout the voyage. When sword fighting with the Legendary Captain after the Violet Paint Star is collected, the Legendary Captain tells him to quit it with the accent, causing the Captain to confess that he's really just a Toad from Port Prisma, indicating that the accent was fake.

A yellow Toad who runs as the head chef in Tangerino Grill.

A Shy Guy that Mario encounters on the Sunset Express when Larry takes it over.

* PunchClockVillain: Deconstructed. He is a nice guy and talks to Mario about the nature of his life and wonders why he fights for Bowser like he does. Then he realises that the next time they meet it will be as enemies, and if you do meet again, he dies.
* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: You do not actually have to meet him again and kill him. In fact, it is actually quite difficult to encounter him as he is one of the Shy Guys on trapeze in Mossrock Theater and requires you to wait for him to appear.
* WhatMeasureIsAMook: A nice Shy Guy who questions his life choices and talks to Mario. He can still die like any other mook though.

The apparent BigBad A Sticker fairy who is the caretaker of the game. Using the Chaos Heart, Count Bleck wishes to destroy all worlds and starts off the apocalypse by [[RealityBreakingParadox marrying Bowser and Peach]].Royal Stickers.



* AffablyEvil: He's so polite and upbeat that it's hard to hate him.
* AllEncompassingMantle: We think his torso might actually ''be'' the mantle.
* AntiVillain: Genuinely cares for his minions and is motivated by deep sorrow rather than evil.
* AristocratsAreEvil: He's a ''count'', of ''course'' he's evil! ...or [[AntiVillain is he?]]

* AGodAmI: His basic goal. Why does he want to accomplish this? No reason whatsoever; he's just NUTS.
* AxCrazy: Oh yes. Don't let that cute jester look fool you, he's one of the most deranged villains in the ''Mario'' series, and rivals [[SelfDemonstrating/KefkaPalazzo Kefka]] in sheer insanity.
* BadassFingerSnap: The way he activates his spells, which often result in StuffBlowingUp.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: REALLY do so in his case. He doesn't look like much at glance, but going by how he manipulates the plot, it seems likely that he could gone and killed the heroes while they were searching for the Pure Hearts if really wanted to, and he's only stopped because Count Bleck and his henchmen re-energize the Pure Hearts and make him vulnerable.
* BigBad: The true mastermind behind all the events in the game.
* BlatantLies: His {{Leitmotif}} is called "Dimentio, Charming Magician". He is [[OmnicidalManiac anything but]] [[MonsterClown charming]]!
* BossRemix: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VicLF_xiRUo The Ultimate Show]] is a remix of his {{Leitmotif}}, a fitting enough theme for the FinalBoss.
* CatchPhrase: "Ciao!"
* TheChessmaster: Manipulated both the heroes of light and his own allies for his own ends. It is also heavily implied that he was responsible for several of the events foretold within the Dark Prognosticus, and possibly even creating the Dark Prognosticus itself.
* ClassicVillain: Representing Ambition and Wrath.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Dimentio is by far the darkest villain the ''Mario'' series has produced, rivaling the Shadow Queen, the Shroobs, and the post-SanitySlippage King Boo in terms of evil.
* DidntSeeThatComing: His plan was very nearly a XanatosGambit except for a single flaw: he didn't know the Pure Hearts could be revitalized after already being used.
* DieLaughing: Gives one final bout of laughter as he dies.
* DissonantSerenity: Rarely loses his cool and always maintains a perpetual PsychoticSmirk. What makes this scarier is that we never know if it's a mask or his actual face.
* EldritchAbomination: Possibly. His OneWingedAngel form? Definitely.
* EnergyBall: His SignatureMove.
* EnigmaticMinion: Not much is known about him or his background. He is hinted to have been a mercenary at some point.
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: The reason why he ultimately failed. He was sure the power of the Pure Hearts had been used up against Count Bleck, only for Count Bleck and Tippi's love to revive them.
* EvilIsHammy: Everything Dimentio does is done with a theatrical flourish and treats his entire EvilPlan like a piece of theater. And the titles of his Leitmotifs best exemplify this.
* EvilGenius: Cold, calculating, and he fights with magic. And what truly cements his role as this is that he is a mastermind manipulating everyone in the game to his own ends.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He seem like a decent and polite enough guy at a glance, but underneath he's completely heartless and has no respect for anyone.
* FinalBoss: Of ''Super Paper Mario'', as [[OneWingedAngel Super Dimentio]].
* TheHeavy: Appears the most out of Count Bleck's minions, and his actions--not Mario's, and not Bleck's--are usually responsible for the plot's biggest upsets. And the reason for this is that he is the real BigBad.
* HeroKiller: He technically kills ALL FOUR of the protagonists, blasting Mr. L to the Underwhere after he [[YouHaveFailedMe loses to the heroes a second time]], and the other three of said heroes when they're out of options to get to the next Pure Heart.
* IMeantToDoThat: When he first fights the heroes by sending them to Dimension D, he is stunned when he realizes that Dimension D makes both himself and his opponent stronger, but he laughs it off as a warm up. This becomes FridgeBrilliance when you realize that Dimentio is a sociopath and while sociopaths are incredibly smart, they are also impulsive and tend to not think things all the way through.
* IncomingHam: Whenever he appears, expect him to throw out a random simile or two.
* {{Invisibility}}: Uses this to spy on several characters. And how he was able to learn Tippi's true identity.
* TheJester: Constantly demonstrates a barbed sense of humor, as likely to harass his fellow villains as the protagonist when it strikes him as funny. He's a total psychopath who wants to take over the multiverse just because he can, and he gets the job done with style men can only dream of.
* KnightOfCerebus: A case where a [[FromNobodyToNightmare villain gets darker as the game progresses]]. At first, Dimentio is as lighthearted and silly as the rest of Count Bleck's band. But as his plans and motives are revealed, he reveals himself to be utterly psychopathic. And when his plan to remake the universe is foiled, he decides to ''destroy it all anyway'' out of sheer spite.
* LackOfEmpathy: He only viewed Count Bleck's depressed state and feelings for Timpani/Tippi as a weakness to be exploited, to which he did exploit. Because of this, he also legitimately thought that, once the Pure Hearts were used up to defeat Bleck, they wouldn't ever return, thus allowing him to take over the Chaos Heart without risk of being defeated. He was proven wrong, as they came back due to pure love by Bleck and his followers.
* LargeHam: Half of his dialogue consists of laughing at the heroes and making similes. He's pretty over the top, fittingly since he is a jester.
* LaughablyEvil: He's a despicable little psychopath, but his hilariously hammy antics and bizarre speech patterns all but force you to like him.
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4abwkOWYimo Dimentio, Charming Magician]].
* LightIsNotGood: Wears a bright purple and yellow costume and his {{Energy Ball}}s are colored the same way. Despite this, however, he is most definitely '''not''' good.
* MadBomber: He can create magical explosions which is his preferred method of killing.
* MagicalClown: This wicked jester has control over dimensions. He can even create his own!
* TheManInFrontOfTheMan: There are hints that he might have been the writer of the Dark Prognosticus or at least was involved in its creation, meaning that he would be this instead as everything Bleck did in the game would be traced back to him.
* ManipulativeBastard: As Count Bleck learns the hard way.
* MeaningfulName: His name is a play on the words dimension (Referencing his RealityWarper powers) and demented (because he's [[AxCrazy batshit insane.]])
* MesACrowd: He can replicate himself during boss fights. During the Castle Bleck level, he floods a hallway with replicas of himself to push characters back.
* MonsterClown: Especially Super Dimentio.
* MultipleChoicePast: Dimentio's past has never fully been revealed and what information we do have is conflicting at best. He was either a mercenary with dimensional magic or a descendant of the magician who created the Pixls or he could be both.
* NearVillainVictory: His plan was perfect, except that the Pure Hearts regenerated because of the UndyingLoyalty of Count Bleck's minions.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: At first he seems like a ditzy and lighthearted magician... Then he suddenly appears ''in [[HubLevel Flipside]]'' and "murders" Mario, Peach, and Bowser in a blink of an eye, and it all goes downhill from there. If he didn't need the good guys for ThePlan, he could just pop in and kill them whenever he wanted to.
* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: Unlike Count Bleck, Dimentio actually does want to create new worlds after he destroy the old ones. Though given that he is an AxCrazy [[TheSociopath Sociopath]], [[EvilCannotComprehendGood who doesn't understanding the concept of love]], and not giving a crap about anyone but himself, It is safe to say that no one will benefit from this either.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: He's just a ditzy little jester, right? He doesn't look ''that'' dangerous.
* OmnicidalManiac: When beaten for the final time, he decides to take the multiverse with him to the grave.
* OneWingedAngel: Super Dimentio, a FusionDance between him, the Chaos Heart, and Luigi.
* PlayingBothSides: Manipulated Count Bleck and the heroes into helping him obtain the Chaos Heart.
* PowerFloats: He is never seen walking.
* PragmaticVillainy: Technically he does help Mario, Peach, and Bowser out at one point by sending them to the Underwhere where they find Luigi and another Pure Heart, but that is only because it will bring him one step closer to defeat Count Bleck and steal the Chaos Heart from him.
* PsychoForHire: Hinted at with Carson's mention of his having a mercenary background.
* PsychoticSmirk: His default expression.
* PerpetualSmiler: Always maintains that ever-present smile, even when commiting horrific acts.
* PutTheLaughterInSlaughter - He gives out an "Ah ha ha" after "killing" Mario, Peach and Bowser.
* RealityWarper - He can summon his personal dimension called "Dimension D" at a whim. Considering that he's implied by Carson to be a descendant of the magician who created the original Pixls, it's not surprising.
* RecurringBoss: He is fought three times. Once in Chapter 3-3, a second time as a DuelBoss battle with Luigi, and a third time as the FinalBoss, Super Dimentio.
* {{Sadist}}: It's not hard to see him as one considering he makes constant jokes when killing others and he promised to torture Count Bleck and the others when he was done with Mario and Co.
%%* SendInTheClones:
* TheSociopath: Possibly the most disturbing example of this trope in a ''Mario'' game. Incredibly manipulative, has nothing resembling empathy, constantly smiles when doing horrific acts as well as making cruel jokes when killing and doing other atrocities. Tippi even outright calls him one.
%%* SophisticatedAsHell
* SplitPersonalityMerge: At first, the brainwashed Luigi merged with the Chaos Heart is only capable of saying "GREEEEEEEEEN!" Once Dimentio merges with them, he gains control, and talks the same way he normally does, excepting for shouting "L-POWER!", hinting that there's a touch of Luigi, or rather, Mr. L's personality in there too.
* TheStarscream: He is first seen as a servant to the BigBad Count Bleck, even mentioning it himself throughout the game, but it turns out, Dimentio himself is the true BigBad who only teamed up with Bleck for his own means: to get the Chaos Heart and later betrays Bleck and attempts to destroy the world.

* TalksLikeASimile: "''And now we must duel, like [[{{Deliverance}} two glimmering banjos]] [[ShoutOut on a moonlit]] [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar stoop!]]''"
* TakingYouWithMe: Double Subversion: At first after Luigi defeats Dimentio, Dimentio seemingly attempts to invoke this trope on Luigi, apparently in order to keep him from Bleck's "velvet-lined hands" by trapping Luigi with him in his explosion barrier (the same one that killed Mr. L/Luigi the first time as well as killed Mario, Bowser, and Peach). However, it was later revealed that Dimentio actually softened the blow so it only knocked Luigi unconscious and allowed himself to survive, as part of a {{plan}} so he could then implant a [[HypnoTrinket floro sprout]] on Luigi so that he could then brainwash him into merging with the Chaos Heart (and then merge with the both of them). However, after his final defeat, Dimentio decides to take the multiverse with him to the grave.
* {{Technopath}}: Dimentio short circuits Fracktail at the beginning of the game, making it attack Mario.
* ToCreateAPlaygroundForEvil: He wants to create a perfect world under his rule. What his idea of "perfect" is is anyone's guess.
* VileVillainSaccharineShow: It is very jarring to find a character who is as insane and murderous as he in a ''Mario'' game, even with his LaughablyEvil tendencies. The only one comparing to him is the Shadow Queen from the previous game, and she only showed up [[FinalBoss at the very end.]]
* VillainousHarlequin: He certainly has the jester's outfit and [[LaughablyEvil personality]] down. [[BewareTheSillyOnes He's also the most villainous character in the game]].
* VillainTeleportation: How he gets from point A to point B.
* VillainousBreakdown: He becomes an OmnicidalManiac after being defeated by Mario and company for the last time.
* WalkingSpoiler: Truly, there's more to him than you'd think.
* YourHeadAsplode: Inverted upon his final defeat: His head is the only part of his body that ''doesn't'' explode (not initally, at least).
* ZergRush: Somewhat. In 8-3, he completely floods a hallway with clones of himself. They don't actually hurt you, but will continuously push you toward the center of the hallway, from where you entered.

* AchillesHeel: He is only vulnerable to [[KillItWithFire fire]]. And "Thing" cards too, he isn't ''that'' invulnerable.
* BodyHorror: Not only was he literally sucking the life out of a Green Ranger Toad when you find him, he then [[ExorcistHead folds backwards]] and creepily crawls towards Mario.
* BossInMookClothing: Looks like a regular Shy Guy, but is actually the MiniBoss of the level.
* CrateExpectations: He is hidden in one in the Sunset Express.
* DegradedBoss: He wasn't [[MiniBoss that much]] of a boss to begin with, but he comes back several times, and now the player knows his only weakness. (That plus the "StrongAsTheyNeedToBe" effect caused by the GameplayAndStorySegregation.)
* ExorcistHead: The {{Horror Trope|s}} implied by his backwards folding.
* GameplayAndStorySegregation: When you meet him again, your hammer has upgraded and is able to OneHitKill him with a preemptive strike. But if you fight him normally, the hammer cards are useless again like in the first encounter.
* InvincibleMinorMinion: After defeating dozens of Shy Guys of [[UndergroundMonkey various forms]], not being able to defeat this creepy but otherwise unremarkable Slurp Guy makes him even more {{uncanny|Valley}}.
* JustBetweenYouAndMe: After a few turns wasting your attacks on him, he will eventually [[WhatAnIdiot plainly spit out loud his own weakness]] that would [[AnticlimaxBoss defeat him in only one well done attack]]. The thing is some players are too focused on the gamepad and don't pay attention to the enemy lines and might never notice it...
* KillItWithFire: The (almost) only way to destroy this monstrosity.
* KungFuProofMook: Regular attacks like the jump and the hammer won't work against him. Justified, as his folding allows him to absorb any stomp without damaging him.
