First Appearance Paper Mario: The Shards of Time

Ilgada is a character who debuts in Paper Mario: The Shards of Time. He is the Temporius Sage, and the guardian of the legendary Time Crystal.

Physical Description

Ilgada is an anthropomorphic being of undefined species. He has horns that resemble those of the Pokemon Dialga, and his robe-like body bears markings similar to Dialga's.

Guardian Form

In this form, Ilgada appears much more bestial.


Is it unknown exactly when Ilgada came into being, but many claim that he appeared when time began to flow from the Time Crystal. He is the guardian of this precious artifact.


Paper Mario: The Shards of Time

This is his first canon appearance. Here, he is responsible for scattering the shards of the Time Crystal after Bowser accidentally broke it.


As the Temporius Sage, Ilgada is incredibly powerful, and is able to manipulate Time as well as the elements of Light and Darkness. He is also able to fly, and has telekinetic abilities.

Guardian Form

When the Time Crystal was shattered, it caused Ilgada to revert to his Guardian form in order to try and keep the flow of time stable. Unfortunately, it also removed all rational thought, and he could no longer distinguish between friend and foe.

In PM:TSoT, he turns back to normal after Mario and co. defeat him in combat. Canonically, however, he doesn't turn back to normal until the Time Crystal is repaired.


Normal Form

Ilgada is mostly calm and reserved in his regular form. He is incredibly slow to anger, and rarely displays great emotion.

Guardian Form

In his Guardian Form, Ilgada is rather violent, and much more feral in mindset. He will lash out at anyone who approaches him, as he cannot distinguish the difference between friend and foe.
