Grodus is a powerful summoner.
The X-Naut Fortress used to be a spaceship, and landed on the Moon to avoid the conflict on the planet below.
The Shadow Queen is the same species as the shadow sirens.
Count Blumiere and Timpani are in the Mushroom Kngdom
Flavio is a Time Lord.
Ms. Mowz is the wife of Rowf, the badge shop owner from the first game.
Dimentio is Phanto.
Mimi is a Homonculus.
Mimi is a Spy.Wut? The disguising? The smoke effect when she does? The tricking you into Stupidity Is the Only Option? Boys, it's a spah!
Mimi probably somehow got a Spy's disguise kit (or a Your Eternal Reward) and uses it all the friken time. My guess is she (somehow, for some reason) lived in the world where TF2 takes place and her 'father' (if she had one) taught her how to use the disguise kit, making her the first (or second) female Spy, which explains why she uses the tricks an experienced Spy would use. She probably also has the Invisibility Watch and uses it when she chases you in Chapter 2-4. I mean, she suddenly appears when you stay somewhere too long (the Invisibility Watch works for a short time and has to reload each time you turn visible). The explosion in 2-3? Dead Ringer.
The four legendary heroes of black chest fame are cursed to be incarnations of the fourth wall.
Dimentio is responsible for Count Bleck
The Chaos Heart wasn't destroyed!
The name requirement for the Twilight Town Warp Pipe was made because of Doopliss
Merlon's mustache is his arms.
Dimentio didn't want The End Of The Multiverse As We Know It at the end of Super Paper Mario
The Dimentio in the game is actually Shadoo
Dimentio wrote the Dark Prognosticus.He's actually millions of years old, and wrote his own prophecy...and planned to carry them out himself. But he needed a pawn - Count Bleck - and used him as a tool to carry out the plans of the Dark Prognosticus. When Count Bleck had no further use to Dimentio, he intended to kill him and carry out the rest of the plan.
Charlieton is a great fighter
Nastasia has geass
Dimentio is Ulyaoth.I played Eternal Darkness first, of course, but just looking at the character sheet for Ulyaoth after having played SPM made me laugh...and then be mortified at the idea. Alternately, he's Xel'lotath after going even more crazy as a result of whatever rites or process turned him into an Eldritch God-figure.
Dimentio is Nyarlathotep
Mr. Hammer, Spikey Tom, and Spikey John are traitors to the Koopa Troop.That quiz show seemed a little too helpful. Not only does it provide Peach and the player with information on the next Star Spirit, but Mr. Hammer gives you a super-special item perfect for sneaking around just for participating, tells you how to use it, and makes a point to specifically tell you not to use it to go sneaking around. So, basically, he gives you information, ideas on how to get more, and the means to do so. Doesn't he come off a bit obvious? Mr. Hammer is secretly on Mario's side and is playing his part in sabotaging his de jure king.
The player will have to fight Mario at some point in Paper Mario 3DS.You fought Peach possessed by the Shadow Queen, and Luigi fused with a crazy clown. Don't be surprised if Mario gets brainwashed at some point and leaves your team. Maybe even final boss status...
Flurrie is from Lumpy Space.She's purple, she's cloudlike, she floats around randomly, and she is definitely lumpy. She's been living among the Punis long enough to lose the Verbal Tic, but she's still a Lumperson.
Mario and Luigi's surname is Gonzales.That's where Mario's Glitz Pit stage name, the Great Gonzales, came from. I'm guessing the reason they're not called the Gonzales Brothers has something to do with "Mario Brothers" having a nicer ring to it.
Thousand Year Door is a theatrical reenactment of the real quest.The events of Thousand Year Door had been noted to be compiled into book form—or, if we want to WMG further, Luigi was the one who went on the adventure (as evidenced by his letters to Mario and the Super Paper Luigi book series), but Executive Meddling in the universe where Paper Mario was published forced them to change the protagonist to Mario because they believed that nobody wanted to play a game with Luigi as the protagonist. However, somebody somewhere felt sorry for Luigi, putting in the Easter Eggs about Luigi's quest, and Mario can still "cosplay" as Luigi via badges. This explains why you have an audience cheering you on in the battles - it really is all just happening on a stage, and "Star Power" is part of the gimmick to keep the audience involved.
Yoshi or Toad will the the final boss of the 3DS game.Because they're the only members of the main cast who hasn't been.
Dimentio, like Giygas, was driven insane from his power.I'm not suggesting they're related, but I am suggesting that what happened to Giygas at the end of Earthbound happened to Dimentio. He was probably completely sane at one point, a skilled magician, and who may have even been a nice guy. However, eventually he discovered other kinds of magic, and began to use them. Over time, each spell took away a part of his sanity, and his newfound power replaced it. Soon, the dark magic he tried to control was controlling him. He used this power to obliterate his world, leaving only a small piece, which became Dimension D. He gained a thirst for destruction and a lust for power. Coupled with his lack of sanity, only one thing seperated his mental state from Giygas'; he knew what he was doing, and enjoyed it.
Save Blocks, from an in-universe perspective, cause premonitions.If a person hits a Save Block, they see themselves continuing on with their adventure from there until they make a fatal mistake and pay the price. Sometimes, they may see multiple examples of this in sequential order. That way they can avoid what it was that would've killed them. You know when you're playing the game and you die and have to start over form the last save point? That's all in Mario's head. And that's why they call it a Save Block; they save you from getting yourself killed.
The Flipside (and Flopside) Pit of 100 Trials looks like the LCD screen of a Game & Watch system because it is one.Seriously, can you think of another reason why it does?
The Save Block on the moon was put there by the Goombas that first landed there that Goombella spoke of.It was their "American Flag," so to speak.
The reason Bonechill was made easy......was to make up for The Overthere being so complicated like a certain infuriating dungeon involving water.
Paper Mario 3DS will continue the series' Darker and Edgier trend.It will give children nightmares but it'll still get an E10+ rating at the worst.
Paper Mario 6 or 7 will have be an utsuge.Taking the series Cerebus Syndrome to its logical conclusion, We can expect many of the party members to die in tragic senseless sacrifices and the ending to be a Shoot The Shaggy Dog Story that Mario will cause.
The book Goombella reads when you Tattle in battle was written by none other than RAWK HAWK.Obviously, Rawk Hawk seems to have written his own entry, but what about the others? Well, who better than a fighter to learn the stats of enemies when there's not an adventure going on? And who would be most successful besides a champion? It's only good for Grubba that he kept R.H. more or less content until Mario came along; with such information in his possession, he might've gone after him!
Bonetail didn't start out skeletal.Being stuck at the bottom of a giant dungeon doesn't really call for much nourishment...it may have started out like it's living predecessors, but after so long, it became weary and just turned into bones. But, being one of the Shadow Queen's pets, it wasn't able to die just yet. It was meant to die but stayed animated due to the Shadow Queen's dark magic. So, it stayed in this undead state, in a state of rage and unable to do anything but the purpose it was meant to serve: devour anyone who dares enter the Pit of 100 Trials. Mario is able to put it out of it's misery with either the Crystal Stars (when going through the Pit of 100 Trials normally) or just...sheer luck and skill (when going through the Pit of 100 Trials before fighting Hooktail).
The Void hasn't actually been stopped, just hinderedThe Exact Words referring to the Void are: "The void will swallow all...Naught can stop it...unless the one protected by the dark power is destroyed." Assuming is dangerous, but— if memory serves— there's really only one 'dark power' at work in Super Paper Mario: the Chaos Heart. There are several people who could qualify as "the one protected by the dark power", though. Bleck and Dimentio, are the first to come to mind. While both were shielded by the Chaos Heart for some amount of time, both were also made vulnerable by the Pure Hearts, rendering that protection useless.
The prophecy never said anything about using the 'dark power', though, just being protected by it, which— as the Genre Savvy might have surmised— means that there is a third candidate. Considering the fact that the final battle presumably killed Dimentio, but did absolutely nothing to Luigi— who, logically, should have been hurt, since he played the role of 'host'— it's a distinct possibility that he was protected by the Chaos Heart, as per the prophecy. Of course, since he's still alive, one has to wonder about the void, too— hence the WMG.
There will be no Whacka in Paper Mario 3DS.
The reason Luvbi still exists at the end...
Dimentio is from Derse.The color of his skin, the clothing... Anyone else got any ideas?
Rawk Hawk is a Captain Ersatz of Sonic the HedgehogLet's see: Totally Radical Anthropomorphic...whatever he is? Styles himself as Mario's rival, but can be curbstomped each time without much effort? Rawk Hawk even looks like Super Mode Sonic, what with the golden spikes and everything...
The Shady Koopa in the mid-Shadow Queen cutscene was KP PeteThe Shadow Queen's darkness, mixed with his power being returned from Grubba, turned him into a shady koopa.
Shadoo is the Pixl QueenThere are actually several clues that point to this in Super Paper Mario. First, Shadoo said that she was going to get revenge on the Ancients using the power of the Pixls. This is similar to how the Pixl Queen took control of the Pixls and used them to enslave the Tribe of Ancients. In addition to this, the Pixl Queen was said to have "powers of illusion", which she used to hide herself from sight. Shadoo has a similar ability, because she is able to hide from sight and take people's forms. These two things make it very likely that Shadoo was the Pixl Queen. It's possible that instead of being killed during the Pixl Uprising, Shadoo was locked up in the Flopside Pit of 100 Trials.
The Thing-a-Fling service and the shady Thing shop are a commentary by the developers on free-to-play games.It's a flash, entertaining, completely free service... but once you're out of things, you're directed to a shop where you can buy more things to fling. Sound familiar?
Rawk Hawk graduated from Kansas University.Rawk Hawk Jayhawk? Look at the◊similarities!
Merlon actually explained the Ancients to Mario in the first Paper Mario.Mario of course wasn't able to recognize its significance and fell asleep.
The story of Merlon's ancestor actually involves time travel.While the story starts in third person, as Mario is spacing out Merlon has switched to first person. Obviously, the story involves him encountering his own ancestors in their timeframes.
Rawk Hawk is as strong as he says he is.Yes, we all know that the two Rawk Hawk battles can turn into a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown issued by Team Mario, but what if Rawk Hawk is only at Level 1 when you fight him? It makes sense, and would explain why Mario and Bowser can beat him so easily. In that case, I don't think I'd wanna see what type of damage the Feral Nuclear Reactor could dish out if he was at a level equal to Mario during the Glitz Pit battles...
Grodus is over 1000 years old, and was probably human/another species other than robotic at some point.The whole reason Grodus was so determined to open the Thousand Year Door and trusts its legend to be true was that he was there when the Shadow Queen's War happened. Grodus used to be not cybernetic (Maybe even human) and at some point at time got stranded on an ancient moon base. (Maybe built by the humans when they were around?) Because he was aging rapidly and would die soon he slowly augmented himself more and more until he was no longer organic. Then, in a calculated greed for his humanity (or organic body if he wasn't human originally) back, he started cloning himself over and over, using these new beings as soldiers. It was then that he formed the Secret Society of the X-Nauts which its sole purpose was to unlock the Shadow Queen's power in an attempt for regaining his original body. Why world conquest now? Its not actually world conquest, that's just what he tells his minions to keep the illusion up that hes in it for the society and not himself.
After Flavio got bumped down to second-richest man in Rogueport, the title of richest went to...the koopa living on the west side.Anytime you go into his house and talk to him, the koopa will mention some investment of sorts he's made in the past chapter has has made him even richer. It's highly likely that his increase in wealth, coupled with the loss of the S.S. Flavion, was the cause of Flavio's downgrade to second-richest.
The town that fell victim to the Shadow Queen's "great cataclysm" and sank into the depths of the earth, only to be replaced by Rogueport years later......was the capital city of none other than the fabled Luff Empire spoken of in Luigi's adventure. With their Marvelous Compass, the Luffs assumed themselves invincible and thought they could handle themselves against the Shadow Queen during her rise to power. We all know how that ended.
Bowser not Luigi is the prophecied Man in Green.Both Count Bleck and Dimentio targeted the wrong character. The Prophecy is still going on.... At some point Bowser will resummon the Chaos Heart and become an even worse threat than Dimentio and Count Bleck! Remember! Bowser tried to tear down the universe and rebuild it in his image just like Dimentio tried with the Multiverse!
Jr. Troopa in the first Paper Mario becomes Bowser Junior after this game.He both looks and acts like Junior and appeared exactly one year before Super Mario Sunshine. My guess is that after Paper Mario, Bowser found him and adopted him as his own son. At any rate, even if he isn't, he certainly seems to be a precursor to Junior.
