Trivia / Paper Mario 64

  • Fan Nickname: Fans commonly call this game Paper Mario 64 in order to distinguish this game from the rest of the series.
    • Also, Solid Peach.
      • The playable Peach sections themselves are sometimes referred to as "Peach Gear Solid".
  • Market-Based Title: The game is known as Mario Story in Japan.
  • Name's the Same:
    • The theme where Peach sneaks around the castle is called "Stealthy Snoop". This was also the name of a mini-game in Donkey Kong 64.
    • This is not the only Nintendo game with a level called "Mt. Lavalava"; Wario Land: Shake It! has one too.
  • What Could Have Been: Paper Mario was originally planned out as a sequel to Super Mario RPG (the working title was Super Mario RPG 2), but Square (known now as Square Enix) and Nintendo had had a falling out a few years prior when Square jumped ship to Sony with Final Fantasy VII (it was over Nintendo's refusal to implement the CD format for the N64, Nintendo took it badly and more or less defended the decision to stick with cartridges), so the name had to be changed.
