Story

Introduction

In another kingdom, called the Moonshade Kingdom, resides a race of half moon-headed species called "Moonars". This kingdom was ruled by King Neith, and most of the residents lived a peaceful life. That is until he mysteriously disappeared one day, leaving the kingdom without a ruler. His younger sister, Eclipsa was elected to be the next ruler, and under her rule, the kingdom had stricter rules and law. In no time, she went mad with power, and many residents eventually migrated to the Mushroom Kingdom.

Back at the Mushroom Kingdom, Mario and Luigi are inside their house, with Luigi cooking some breakfast and Mario waiting at the table. While he is doing this, there is a knock on the door. Luigi goes to answer it, and sees Mailtoad, who gives him a letter from Princess Peach. He gives the letter to Mario before going back to cooking. The letter says Mario and Luigi must come over to Peach's Castle for something she will explain when they get there. Luigi serves breakfast once Mario is done reading, and after eating, the two rush off to Peach's Castle.

Upon arriving the castle's throne room, where Princess Peach (and many others, like Toadsworth, Starlow, etc) is, she reveals that there is someone who wants help, which is why they wanted Mario and Luigi to come over. A red Moonar slowly walks from behind the princess, and introduces herself to the Mario Bros. as Rhea. Rhea explains what happened on the Moonshade Kingdom; with King Neith's disappearance, his younger sister Eclipsa was elected to be the new ruler, and many were not satisfied with the new laws, so they left the kingdom. She ended up at Peach's Castle while aimlessly roaming around the Mushroom Kingdom, and after she and her friend Tethys separated while travesing through a forest.

Meanwhile at Bowser's Castle, a badly beaten up Bowser is being tended by Kamek. While Bowser complains about his plans foiled by and losing to the Mario Bros. once again, Private Goomp, Corporal Paraplonk and Sergeant Guy tell him that there is a visitor, another Moonar, this time a cyan Moonar who happens to be named "Tethys". Tethys introduces himself to Bowser, and was looking for some shelter and a guardian after he separated from his friend Rhea. While annoyed that he just barged right in uninvited, Bowser takes Tethys as one of his minions, especially after knowing he can build and create all kinds of things.

Mario and Luigi agree in helping Rhea out so she can reunite with Tethys and bring peace to the Moonshade Kingdom. The bros, Rhea and Starlow head out of Peach's Castle, though before they exit Toad Town, a Blue Toad with a sack gives them Attack Pieces just in case they need them, giving them a new Bros. Attack. They head out to Brisk Fields, where there is a Big Tail Goomba in the fields that knocks over a huge rock, which halts their progression. Unable to trek on forward without Hammers to destroy the rock, they are forced to travel to another area north from the fields; Rabbit Village. During their time at the village, the quartet ask the villagers who can make Hammers. One rabbit tells them there is a blacksmith in the village that could make Hammers for them; Pikasmith. However, he is not here at the moment, as he is out in the eastern part of Brisk Fields to get resources.

Mario and Luigi go to East Brisk Fields to find Pikasmith, and when they do find him, he is being attacked by two Needlorbs. Unable to jump on them, Rhea steps in to assist them. Using her Lunarang, the trio are able to defeat the Needlorbs and save Pikasmith. As a reward for helping him, Pikasmith will make two Hammers for both Mario and Luigi once he gets back to his place in Rabbit Village for free. They return to the village, and Pikasmith makes the Hammers as he promised. With these Hammers, Mario and Luigi are able to destroy the rock, giving them access to the rest of Brisk Fields. At the end, there is a Big Tail Goomba blocking next area, and they are forced to battle it. The trio manage to defeat the humongous Tail Goomba, and enter the next area; Treeway Woods.

Part 1

Mario, Luigi and Rhea are greeted to a friendly Stumpling as they enter the forest. Rhea mentions that this is where she and Tethys got separated, though she never went through this part of the forest, as she never saw any Stumplings. Before they could go any further, they are attacked by a swarm of Buzzaps, but they are able to defeat them and continue to move forward the forest. Deeper into the forest, they find Wiggler, who recently moved his garden to the woods. Rhea accidentally steps on Wiggler's flowers, which enrages him, starting a boss battle with him. After defeating him, Rhea apologizes for what she did, and promises to make up for it. They leave the woods and they end up in Sapphire Shore, which connects to the next major area, Craggy Desert.

As Mario and Luigi move through the desert, they enter a small town called Cragnelburg with cactus-like residents called "Cactaceonians", which is being raided by a Bandit gang, lead by an aqua-green Bandit. Before they can do anything about them, they immediately leave with all the loot they have in their possession. The bros follow them into the desert, where they scatter themselves all around the area. They are all caught eventually, and the loot they've stolen is recovered, before they face the aqua-green Bandit, Randal. After his defeat, he gives them back the loot he stole, but proclaims that "this is not the last of [him]" and scurries off, but not before leaving behind a pack of seeds.

After bringing in the pack that belongs to a cloaked figure in a certain district in the town, they tell them of a underground temple called "Craggy Catacombs" and that there is another piece of treasure they want, marks where the area is on their map, and tells them to dig under the sand to uncover the entrance. Before they leave, she gives them a pair of white socks; the Dash Socks, so they can find it quickly so they do not have to endure the heat, and explains how they work (press and hold 3DS X to charge up and release to start dashing). Mario and Luigi eventually find where the temple is, and they start digging to uncover the entrance to the catacombs. Inside the area are lots of Phanto Masks, some are inanimate, some are animate.

Getting past the many enemies and the animate Phanto Masks, the bros eventually reach the very bottom of the catacombs, with the treasure the cloaked figure was talking about; a vase with fertile sand made out of red jewels. Luigi goes to get it, but Hisstocrat pops up from the sand, battling the Mario Bros. They come out triumphant, and they retrieve the treasure, giving back to the cloaked figure. They thank the bros for their hard work, and gives them Badges as "tokens of gratitude" and explains what they do (both in battle and on the pause menu screen).

In another district of Cragnelburg, two young Cactaceonian daredevils, Peroski and Schlumbert (nicknamed the "Glochildren"), are performing a Spin Jump to get over a large gap between two house roofs. Upon seeing the technique, Mario asks if they could teach him and Luigi the move they just performed, in which they agree in doing. After mastering the technique, they continue onward, passing over a large gap in the desert to reach another part of the area and they continue to the eastern part of Sapphire Shore. Stuck sleeping in the sand is a oyster, who Rhea inadvertently wakes up. While irritated that someone disturbed his sleep, he shrugs it off immediately, introducing himself as Quahoyster. He is an Oystearl and an outcast to other Oystearls in Whimsical Ocean. He travels with Mario and Luigi, looking for someone to be his friends, earning them a new Ally. Mario and Luigi move on to Plumdrop Rainforest, a poisonous lakeside/rainforest.

Part 2

At the eastern part of the rainforest, they find Slanito, a poisonous Toad who Mario and Luigi already encountered before. When Starlow asks if he is cause of this place being polluted, he responds by saying he is not the cause for the most part, telling them there was a gigantic Piranha Plant (Petey Piranha) ravaging the area when he came around. Slanito explains he "accidentally" poisoned him with one of his Poison Mushrooms, which he then later on created lots of poison which affected the whole forest. He also states still has a score to settle with the Piranha Plant, but if they were to interfere, they would not like it. Despite his warnings, they still continue on in the forest, and eventually encounter Slanito again. Fed up with them following him, Slanito battles Mario and Luigi, however he is easily beaten. Slanito calls a truce between the bros so they can defeat the large, poisonous Piranha Plant he was talking about, becoming a temporary Ally.

At the end of the eastern part of the rainforest is Petey Piranha (referred to as Polluted Petey Piranha), who has a different coloration and has the ability to spit out poisonous Goop. Right now, he is asleep, but Kamek appears to wake him up to hinder their progress. Mario and Luigi face off against him and defeat him, causing Kamek to retreat. Slanito thanks Mario and Luigi for finishing what he wanted to do so himself, and runs out of the rainforest. Continuing to the north-eastern part of Plumdrop Rainforest, the bros find a boneyard with Dry Bones roaming around, and a haunted mansion named the Conundrum Manor. Luigi explains that this all feels familiar to him prior to him and Mario entering the mansion (where the front door immediately locks behind them) to see that there are ghosts roaming about.

In multiple parts of the mansion, Toad spirits that are inside vases teach Mario and Luigi about the puzzles inside the mansion, and even teaches them about the Mini-Mario and Mole Mario techniques. At the a certain floor of the mansion, they meet up with King Boo, who is having tea with another Boo. He notices the Mario Bros., mostly Luigi, lamenting the previous times he trapped Mario in a painting, and the previous battles he had with the Luigi. He orders the Boo he was having tea with to attack the bros. Said Boo combines itself with many other Boos, turning it into a "Jumb-Boo" and attacks them, however it is defeated, and releases multiple Boos that disappear immediately. Up at the last floor, they meet King Boo once again, who transports them into the Paranormal Dimension and faces them. He is defeated, leaving behind three gems that are on his crown. After putting each one in their respective holes, the front door opens, allowing them to leave.

With their newly acquired techniques, they are able to leave Plumdrop Rainforest through the northern pathway, and enter in the northern part of Treeway Woods. Taking the southern west path leads them to the next part of Rabbit Village, and they leave the area to Brisk Fields. A Green Toad comes up to Mario and Luigi to alert them that Toad Town and Peach's Castle was attacked by Bowser and his minions, and the princess has been kidnapped once again. He tells the bros that he last saw them going to a desert area. Mario and Luigi quickly go back to Craggy Desert, and visit the Glochildren again in a district of Cragnelburg, who are working on a new move, which they dub the "Spring Jump". They notice the bros and ask them if they want to learn their new move, as their faces tell them they want to. After mastering the Spring Jump, they reach a fortress, called "Fort Fossil", where Starlow thinks the princess might be held captive inside.

Deeper inside the fortress, the bros and company are thrown in a jail cell by the Elite Trio. Inside the cell are some other Toads, Cactaceonians, and Randal the Bandit, who was recently thrown in here for theft. Despite their past encounter, Randal offers to help Mario out of jail by joining their party, becoming the third permanent Ally. The bros manage to escape the prison and continue on through the fortress, finally confronting the Elite Trio once again. Private Goomp is a little stunned that they managed to escape, but he, Corporal Paraplonk and Sergeant Guy battle Mario and Luigi, but the trio are defeated. They reach to where "Princess Peach" is, but they quickly realize it is Kamek, who was just trying out the dress again, as he still loathes the blue robes. Kamek attacks Mario and Luigi, and despite his powerful magic, ends up defeated. He quickly flies out of the fortress and away from the bros.

Part 3

From the fort, Kamek can be see heading east. The bros chase after him, and end up in the western part of Sapphire Shore, where Kamek is seen near Sapphire Docks, where the S.S. Boletus is. Before it can head off the sail, however, Kamek uses his magic to summon Queen Calamaria from the water, who promptly knocks Kamek into the water as she emerges from the water, and attacks Mario and Luigi. She is quickly defeated, and the S.S. Boletus starts to sail across the sea. Bowser and Bowser Jr. suddenly appear, flying in their Koopa and Junior Clown Cars respectively, the former having Peach held in there. Next to them is Tethys, who is on a hover machine to which he calls a "Hovercopter". He uses it to fire a laserbeam at the S.S. Boletus, sinking it into the ocean. After it sinks, the bros have to swim underwater to chase after Bowser, though they meet up with Cloyster, who was trying to find Quahoyster. Seeing him travelling with Mario and Luigi, he wishes him good luck out there after Quahoyster tells him that he will be fine venturing with the bros. They manage to get out from underwater via a Yellow Warp Pipe that leads them to a snowy island called Bittercold Isle, which is near a recently active volcano, Grumbledome Volcano. While it was dormant before, fortunately, a barrier was created so most of the lava and magma would not reach the outer areas of the island. They do not know what caused the volcano to erupt recently, and nobody is brave enough to find out themselves. Mario and Luigi go and investigate, venturing up the mountain surrounding the volcano's crater, Mount Grumbledome. While they climb the mountain, Sergeant P. Beetle and his squadron of Para-Beetles can be seen through the mountain's telescope near the summit.

Once they reach up to the mountain's summit, the volcano can be seen, and Luigi climbs up to the top of it to investigate. The volcano starts to rumble, causing Luigi to lose balance, though he manages to correct himself. Unfortunately, Sergeant P. Beetle and his squadron accidentally fly by him very fast, causing him to fall into the volcano's crater (which he promptly apologizes for). Mario follows him down and enters Grumbledome Crater. As the bros slowly descend downwards into the volcano's crater, learning the Bros. Ball after they collect a scroll after playing a minigame from a Magma Mole, they find Draggadon, who ultimately the reason why the formerly dormant volcano recently erupted. Draggadon attacks the bros and is quickly beaten, causing it to sink into the lava. A friendly Miner Mole, who was awoken by the battle, offers them his cannon to get out of the volcano with no charge just for defeating Draggadon. Now that they are out of the volcano and are back on the island, Starlow suggests that they must get off the island. A Eski-toad in the village tells them that there is someone willing to sell a boat. A cyan Monty Mole in the village has a cyan-colored pet Dorrie called "Tundorrie", and he lets the bros ride it to where the princess is being held captive in. Mario and Luigi hop on her back and rides her across the ocean, all the way to another part of the Mushroom Kingdom to save Princess Peach, somewhere in Koopa Reef, which connects to Bowser's Castle.

As the bros venture through the area, Kamek warns Bowser that Mario and Luigi are coming to the castle, though this does not mean anything since Private Goomp, Corporal Paraplonk and Sergeant Guy are on entrance-guarding duty, and Tethys is on the job, creating whatever he can to stop them once they manage get in. Once they get to the castle entrance, Private and Corporal alert Sergeant Guy of their arrival, and he pushes his Banzai Bill Cannon where the entrance door is, and if they try to go inside, the cannon will fire at them. Unable to enter normally, Starlow suggests a different solution to get inside, or at least try to get around the cannon. They manage to get inside through the freezing room (in spite of the low, cold temperature). In the rooms, Tethys can be seen. He is surprised that the bros are here, but he says that this is a good time to show off his recently, newly created invention, the Mecha-Blooper. The mechanical created Blooper is quickly defeated, so Tethys has to finish them off himself. He is defeated, and starts to complain about losing to the bros, and they decide to help him out despite all the problems he has caused them, like destroying their ship. He forgives the two and joins them in their adventure, becoming the fourth permanent Ally.

Getting closer to the top, Mario and Luigi encounter Bowser Jr. and Kamek, who question how they managed to get up here, let alone get inside since Private Goomp, Corporal Paraplonk and Sergeant Guy were on guarding duty. They battle the bros, with Kamek using his magic to assist him and Bowser Jr., though they are still defeated nonetheless. They reach the throne room, where Bowser, who oddly has a raccoon tail, and Princess Peach (who is held captive) are. Bowser battles the bros, using an array of fire breathing attacks, tail swipes, and hammer throwing. "Bowser" is defeated, and explodes, leaving behind only a Tail Goomba which promptly escapes. They realized that the Bowser they fought was a disguise used by a Big Tail Goomba, and the real Bowser mocks them for their futile efforts (despite admitting that they did their best) at stopping him and rescuing the princess over the intercom. The Princess Peach that was held captive in the room was just a cardboard cutout. The bros looks out the window to see Bowser escaping with Princess Peach in his Koopa Clown Car, though using the Bill Cannons, they manage to shoot it down, causing it to crash down into Moonshade Kingdom.

Part 4

Mario and Luigi go back to where Tundorrie is and rides her to the Moonshade Kingdom, stopping at the docks. Before they can go out, they have to transfer their foreign coins into "Moonshade Coins". Since the kingdom is not affiliated with the Mushroom Kingdom, they cannot do this, so they have to give up their coins and go out to get "Moonshade Coins" in the kingdom until they decide to move back to the Mushroom Kingdom. They run into a village, which is in complete ruins, with Moondroids and Saturn IV Driones roaming about. Mario and Luigi battle their way through the onslaught of enemies in the village, and reach up with the mayor, who is hiding in the basement of his own house. He tells them that the village was recently attacked by Queen Eclipsa and her army, suspecting there were any Half-Moon Resistance members, bringing any suspects to prison in Eclipsa Castle. Mario and Luigi trek forward in Ganymede Plains, eventually finding the castle the mayor was talking, but they cannot get inside because the entrance door is locked. They go to western part of the plains, eventually finding a ground hatch shelter. A Moonar with facial paint opens the hatch, revealing himself as Antheny, a member of the Half-Moon Resistance, and he and the rest of the group are hiding from Ecplisa's forces in the shelter. Before he can let the bros in, however, they must tell him if they are not here to cause trouble, and have nobody following them. After telling him their true intentions, they are allowed inside.

Inside the shelter, there are multiple Moonars, most of them having facial paint on them and the Half-Moon Resistance insignia on their own clothes. They tell them all about Moonshade Kingdom prior to Eclipsa's takeover. Mario and Luigi eventually find a Moonar who has a pale, dark-spotted Chain Chomp who he calls a "Moon Chomp". He had some playing cards left in what is left of his house in Umbriel Village, but he is afraid going out in the open with Ecplisa's forces out there. Mario and Luigi go back to the village and grab the playing cards, and go back to Resistance Moonshetler to give the cards to the Moonar. As a reward, they let them take care of his Moon Chomp, giving them their fifth permanent Ally. Deeper in the shelter, they find two Moonars working on an Umbriel Cannon, but they are missing a "Moonanball". They say that there is someone selling them in "Pallene Outskirts", but they cannot go outside with lots of enemies wandering around. Mario and Luigi go out to the outskirts to purchase a Moonanball. While there, they meet up with Bowser. Starlow asks where the princess is, and he says that he has no idea where she is, as she somehow managed to get out of his Koopa Clown Car. He prepares to face Mario and Luigi for foiling his plans, though he is defeated, allowing them to move on to where the Moonanball shop is. They pay for the cannonball for 500 Moonshade Coins, they obtain the Moonanball and go back to shelter to give the two Moonars so they can load up their cannon. They give them the cannon, and then they push it near the entrance door of Ecplisa Castle, busting it open.

Many Half-Moon Resistance members hear the loud noise and come out inside and storm into the castle to save their imprisoned fellows from having their "lunar energy" being used to power the castle. Mario and Luigi trek inside the castle as well, eventually coming into a room where there is lots of Moondroids and Half-Moon Resistance members. They engage themselves in a short war after some banter from each side. Mario and Luigi are dragged into the war, and have to hammer themselves out of the situation to reach the door on the Moondroid's side. The bros continue their trek through the castle, eventually finding the prison room where most Moonars are kept captive in. Mario and Luigi must find the keys for the prison cells to let them out. After beating some Moondroids with the keys, they open the prison cells, freeing the captive Moonars who promptly leave the castle. Mario and Luigi reach a certain room where a Moonar named "Callisto" speaks over the intercom, telling the bros that, while impressed they managed to reach this far into the castle, they will not get any farther, and sends out a huge, mechanical robot that he lovingly calls "Titan". Mario and Luigi manage to dismantle Titan, and trek forward through the castle, but not before Callisto threatening the bros that he will deal with them later.

Higher up in the castle, Callisto speaks to the bros over the intercom again. He asks the bros how the area looks at the moment before saying that this will be the last sight they will see of the castle. He drops them into the castle sewers underground, telling them since they are plumbers, they should be cleaning dirty pipes in the sewers for the rest of the time they are down there. Mario and Luigi start fixing up pipes to find a way to get out of the sewers, but they hear bubbling from the sewage water. Luigi and Starlow check it out, and a rusty, robotic claw grabs Starlow and brings her into the sewage, startling Luigi. Without Starlow, Mario and Luigi must continue on, finally opening the exit to the sewers. Before they can leave, a robotic crab jumps from the sewage with Starlow, and immediately attacks Mario and Luigi. The bros emerge victorious and the robot shuts down, saving Starlow. They exit the sewers and continue higher in the castle.

Part 5

In another room, they find Callisto, who is complaining about a certain someone who stole one of the keys he has. He notices Mario and Luigi behind, completely shocked they managed to get out of the sewer. Callisto decides to battle the two, with a Nova Clock in the background, giving him benefits in a continuous cycle; raising stats, recovering HP, covering him in a moon shield, etc. Despite the assistance, Mario and Luigi are still able to defeat Callisto, though he manages to escape through the window using his Hovercopter, though he leaves behind a key. However, he accidentally bumps into Bowser Jr. in his Junior Clown Car with Kamek by his side. The two get into an argument with while Kamek tries to calm down the young Koopa. Callisto shoots down the Junior Clown Car with a beam of lunar energy, causing him to eject out of the car and hangs onto the Callisto's Hovercopter to damage it with a hammer, causing it to spiral to the ground, with Kamek following them. Starlow questions what happened, but shrugs it off, and suggests Mario and Luigi should grab the key and trek on.

Mario and Luigi continue on until they reach a door which leads to the throne room, which is locked. They think the key Callisto had dropped would open the door, but it is too big for the lock. They hear faintly crying for help in the basement and go down into it after unlocking it with the key they have. It is very dark down there, though Starlow lights the way. The bros see a chest with a crescent-shaped lock on it. The person trapped inside the chest reveals himself to be the former king of Moonshade Kingdom, Neith, and two of his guards are inside with him. He tells them that Eclipsa trapped him inside a chest and threw it in the basement, hoping nobody would find him in there. He said that there is a key for the lock, but he does not know where it is, though a good guess would be that either Callisto or Eclipsa has the key. A Nabbit can be found hiding in some part of the basement, with the key. He notices the bros, and immediately runs off, dropping the key to the chest he had, with Starlow calling that a convenience. Mario grabs the key, and uses it to open the chest. Neith thanks the bros for their help, and says they must go and teach his wretched sister a lesson. Starlow says the door leading to the throne room is locked, so Neith has to unlock, or in this case, destroy it hismelf. However, without most of his power, it will take longer than expected to destroy it. The lock is finally destroyed after a while, though it weakens him. Using the last fraction of his power, he fully heals the party's HP and BP/SP, and tells them to go onward while he and his guards hide in the basement in the meantime.

Mario and Luigi enter the throne room, with Eclipsa sitting on her throne with four Moondroids near the throne, and Princess Peach, who is caged inside a barrier nearby. She is proud that the bros managed to make it this far, and said she has heard about them via Callisto, though she never caught their names. Starlow introduces the bros to her, saying their names are "Mario" and "Luigi" and tells her to release Princess Peach or else they will pummel her. Eclipsa laughs it off, telling Starlow and Mario Bros. that, even if they made it past most of her underlings, including Callisto, they have no idea what or who they are dealing with. She sends out the Moondroids, though Mario and Luigi easily destroy them. With nothing left to throw at the bros, she decides to face them herself. Using her staff turned scepter, she is able to cast multiple lunar energy-based attacks at Mario and Luigi. Eclipsa is still beaten, though she will not accept defeat from the bros. Suddenly, Bowser in his badly-damaged Koopa Clown Car blasts through the wall using a cannonball. Bowser jumps right in, saying he was looking high and low for Princess Peach, until he saw her in the castle through the window, and had to come in here to snatch her. Eclipsa immediately blasts Bowser with her staff, though he somehow absorbs the magic, transforming himself into a powered-up form which he dubs "Lunar Bowser". He immediately punches Eclipsa away, who accidentally presses a button which activates the platform they were standing on, which flies high above the castle. Now in the skies, Bowser promises to destroy Mario and Luigi and rule over the Mushroom Kingdom with this new power.

Mario and Luigi manage to weaken and slowly expel the lunar energy from Bowser, though before he could deal the final blow with what last of the energy he has, Eclipsa stops him by ensnaring him in place. Using his hammer, Mario and Luigi send Bowser flying back to the Mushroom Kingdom and into Bowser's Castle, where he expels the last of the lunar energy. The platform the bros and Eclipsa were standing on falls back to the ground. Eclipsa tells them to free Princess Peach and leave, telling them to apologize to her brother and the rest of the kingdom for what she has done, and also tell them that they do not have to worry about her ever again before finally collapsing on the ground, unconscious and presumably dead. Mario hits a button which removes the barrier the princess was held captive in. Princess Peach thanks Mario and Luigi for saving her, though she does feel bad for Eclipsa's death, though it turns out she is still alive, barely clinging on to life. She mocks them for thinking she is dead, before weakly coughing.

Ending

With peace restored to the Moonshade Kingdom, King Neith thanks the Mario Bros. and their partners for saving his beloved kingdom. The bros prepare to leave the kingdom with Princess Peach, while Rhea, Tethys and Moon Chomp stay behind. Before Mario and Luigi and the rest ride back to the Mushroom Kingdom, Rhea stops them, thanking them for everything, not only for saving the kingdom, but for taking her along this adventure and helping her reunite with her best friend. She tells Mario and Luigi that she could go to the Mushroom Kingdom for a vacation someday before hugging Mario while Tethys gives Luigi a handshake and Moon Chomp licks him. Princess Peach gives her farewells to the Moonars before she, Mario, Luigi, and the rest of their partners that are not staying behind ride back to the Mushroom Kingdom on their boat.

During the end credits sequence, we see pictures of Mario and Luigi returning to the Mushroom Kingdom with the princess and with the rest of their party, while Rhea and Tethys play with the Moon Chomp back in Moonshade Kingdom, in the Umbriel Village which has been rebuilt, Quahoyster goes back into the Sapphire Oceanbed hoping to make friends with his species, and Randal goes back to his hideout where his gang of Bandits are, telling them that he retires from being a bandit, giving his leadership to another Bandit named "Scandal". Mario and Luigi return to Toad Town with Princess Peach, where it is completely rebuilt after Bowser's attack. The Toads rejoice over the princess's return. Toadsworth hears the commotion and is completely delighted that Princess Peach returned safely. The elderly Toad thanks Mario and Luigi for saving the princess before carrying her back into the castle. Back in Bowser's Castle, Bowser is being tended to once again by Kamek, with Private Goomp, Corporal Paraplonk, Sergeant Guy and Bowser Jr. helping out as well. Bowser thanks them for the company, but still resents his plans being foiled once again. Back at the Moonshade Kingdom, it is shown that Eclipsa and Callisto are locked in the castle jail for their actions.

Gameplay

The core gameplay of Mario & Luigi: Sage Quest remains unchanged from past Mario & Luigi games; in the overworld, the player takes control of both Mario and Luigi. By using the 3DS Stick or the 3DS Pad, the player can move the bros around the field. Pressing 3DS A will cause Mario to perform the action currently selected (ex. Mario will jump when the Jump action is selected), and the same goes for Luigi by pressing 3DS B and the current ally in their party will follow them. The 3DS X button causes everyone to jump together when pressed. These actions can be changed with the 3DS L and 3DS R buttons or with the icons Touch Screen. Also by using the Touch Screen, the player can switch between the Allies they currently have in their party, and by selecting their icon again while they are in the overworld, or by pressing 3DS Y, they will use their own overworld ability.

Scattered around the overworld field are, for the most part, blocks that can be hit from underneath with a simple Jump, enemies that the bros. can enter a battle with (either by touching them or performing a First Strike), coins, switches, and other field features (beanholes, etc). The top screen shows the field while the Touch Screen shows a zoomable mini-map (a spinning blue crystal arrow shows where the Mario Bros. are currently standing), the option to pause and save manually, icons for the current Allies they have in their party, icons for their overworld moves, and, should the player choose to do so, any pinpoints they have placed in an area.

By pressing 3DS Start or by selecting the pause icon on the Touch Screen, the game will be paused and the player will be greeted with a menu where they can see the amount of coins, items, gear and badges the player has collected, the Bros. Attacks learned (where the player can practice up on them or watch a "demo" of the move when not in combat), info on Mario and Luigi's stats, how much Experience Points they have (and how much more to another level up) and their current Rank, the current play time, the map of the areas the player has visited at least once (otherwise they are seen as a grey silhouette until visited), and the Badge Meter when it becomes available. Sometimes when the player pauses, the game will remind them to take a break when needed.

Lastly, pressing 3DS Select, Starlow will appear while everything freezes around them. She will comment on the current location the bros are in, or on the current situation at hand. The player cannot use this when there is a cutscene playing, when they are playing a minigame, or when Crabot takes her in Eclipsa Castle Sewers.

Overworld moves

A list of actions Mario and Luigi can perform in the overworld of Mario & Luigi: Sage Quest, either taught or achieved by the bros during their journey. To switch to/select a certain action, the player must use the 3DS L and 3DS R buttons or by using the Touch Screen.

Move Description Location unlocked
JumpM&amp;LSQ
Jump
3DS A 3DS B
Mario and Luigi can jump to reach high places, stomp on enemies for a First Strike (unless they stomp on a spiny or fire enemy without the Iron Boots (DX) or Frost Boots (DX), as they will take damage once the battle starts), and hit Blocks from below. As the ally is programmed to follow Mario and Luigi, they will jump automatically to reach higher places that Mario and Luigi are already on. Initial
HammerM&amp;LSQ
Hammer
3DS A 3DS B
Mario swings his hammer down to the ground. He can use his hammer to press switches, break rocks blocking the path, and hit enemies for a First Strike (potentially inflicting them with Dizzy), which is best suited for spiny or fire enemies since Mario and Luigi cannot stomp on them without the Iron Boots (DX) or Frost Boots (DX) equipped. Rabbit Village (given by Pikasmith)
SpinJumpM&amp;LSQ
Spin Jump
3DS A
Mario jumps on top of Luigi, and the two can twirl in the air to cross over large gaps they normally cannot cross over by pressing 3DS A again. If they hit a whirlwind while twirling around, they will leap up higher into the air for some more air time and slowly descend back down. While Mario is on top of Luigi, the player can move them using the 3DS Stick/3DS Pad. The move can be cancelled while Mario is on top of Luigi and during a Spin Jump by pressing 3DS B. Cragnelburg (taught by the Glochildren)
Mini-MarioM&amp;LSQ
Mini-Mario
3DS B
Luigi hits Mario over the head with his hammer on a hard surface, causing him to become small enough to fit inside and go through small gaps easily. If Mario passes through these gaps in which Luigi cannot follow, they will be separated from each other. Pressing 3DS B will make Luigi hammer Mario again to turn him back to regular size. The bros cannot use the Spin Jump, Spring Jump and Ball Bros. moves while Mario is in his Mini-Mario form. Conundrum Manor (taught by Shroom Spirits)
MoleMarioM&amp;LSQ
Mole Mario
3DS B
Luigi hits Mario over the head with his hammer on dirt or sand, causing him to tunnel and move underground (indicated by a hovering glove cursor pointing to the ground where Mario is), allowing him to pass under obstacles like gates. If Mario passes under an obstacle in which Luigi cannot follow, they will be separated from each other. Pressing 3DS A will cause Mario to come out of the ground. If Mario moves under groundhollows and he pops from underneath (or if the player holds down 3DS A while passing through them underground; best suited so the player does not have to do the move repeatedly), the bros will obtain either 50 Gold Coins, Giant Coins, colored beans (with the exception of Gold Beans), and in the case of ? Block-shaped groundhollows, items and clothing. Conundrum Manor (taught by Shroom Spirits)
SpringJumpM&amp;LSQ
Spring Jump
3DS B
Luigi jumps on top of Mario. Pressing 3DS B again will cause Mario to crouch and bounce upwards while holding Luigi to reach higher places that are normally unreachable with a normal Jump. While Luigi is on top of Mario, the player can move them using 3DS Stick/3DS Pad. The move can be cancelled while Luigi is on top of Mario by pressing 3DS A. Cragnelburg (taught by the Glochildren)
BallBrosM&amp;LSQ
Ball Bros.
Ball Roll / Dash
3DS A 3DS B
Luigi and Mario both turn into a ball and start rolling around the ground, allowing them to go under walls/obstacles in the game and move faster. The player can change their direction while they are rolling around by using 3DS Stick/3DS Pad. They can also stop in place and charge up a dash to blast forward at incredible speeds and launch them off inclines far enough to reach other places by holding down 3DS A or 3DS B. Pressing 3DS X will cancel the move. Grumbledome Crater (learned from the Grumbledome Scroll)

Battle system

Mario & Luigi: Sage Quest's battle system is also left unchanged, and is very similar to past installments for the most part. To initiate a battle with an enemy in the overworld, Mario and Luigi must either simply touch an enemy (beware not to get hit by an enemy from behind, or else the bro will Trip once the battle starts) or by stomping on them with a Jump or hitting them with a Hammer, which will deal some damage (and potentially inflict Dizzy on the enemies when First Striking them with a Hammer) once the battle begins (unless the enemy is a spiked/fire enemy and the bro stomps on them without the Iron Boots/Frost Boots equipped, as they will take damage once the battle starts).

In a battle, the game acts like a turn-based role-playing game, where the bros and enemies take turns attacking, and their Speed determines who attacks first. On the bros' turn, they will have an array of Command Blocks they can strike to choose the move they want to do. When attacking enemies with Jumps, Hammers and/or Bros. Attacks, all Action Commands are evaluated based on how well they are performed by pressing 3DS A (for Mario) and/or 3DS B (for Luigi). There are five evaluation levels; ranging from the worst to the best, these levels are: "Nothing", "OK", "Good!", "Great!", and "Excellent!". These determine how strong the move will be.

On the enemies' turn, they will try to attack either Mario or Luigi, or even both of them at the same time. When the enemies try to attack, Mario and Luigi can either jump over or hammer them to avoid damage, and in addition, counterattack them...or use an Emergency Block/Guard to defend certain attacks to take less damage by pressing 3DS Y when defending if players are having trouble performing the series' normal counter moves in a particular situation. While defending against an enemy attack that requires both Jump and Hammer defense, the player can switch between those defensive methods using 3DS L and/or 3DS R.

When a bro faints after hitting zero HP, the other bro is not only unable to perform Bros. Attacks, but will have to carry the fainted bro on their back while defending, which decreases their reaction time and slows them down, making it hard for them to dodge attacks. When the Ally faints, the bros will not carry them, though they can be swapped out of if a bro is active. After all party members faint (or just both bros if the Ally is not called in), the battle is over and the player will receive a Game Over. They will then be given the option to either to try again, return to the last Save Block they have last saved their game progress, or return to the Title Screen.

Command Blocks

  • JumpCommandBlockM&amp;LSSBM Jump: Mario or Luigi will attack by stomping on the enemies to deal damage. A well-timed Action Command (a well-timed 3DS A or 3DS B press) has the bro doing another jump (and performing a fancy spin) on the enemy for more damage. This does not work on spiked/fire enemies, as this will damage the bro who attempts to stomp on them unless they have the Iron/Frost Boots (DX) on.
  • HammerCommandBlockM&amp;LSSBM Hammer: Mario or Luigi will hit the enemy over the head with their Hammers, which has a chance o inflicting Dizzy of them. A well-timed Action Command (a well-timed 3DS A or 3DS B press) has the bro doing a powerful hammer smash that deals more damage depending on when they press the appropriate button.
  • Strike: The Ally will strike an enemy with the weapon they have equipped. Well-timed Action Commands (a well-timed 3DS Y press) makes the attack deal more damage, or cause them to attack again.
  • Bros. Attack: Mario or Luigi will perform the Bros. Attack they have acquired during the course of the game. These attacks cost BP (Bros. Points), and can only be used if both bros. are active in battle or if they have enough BP to perform a certain Bros. Attack.
  • Special Attack: The Ally can use their Special Attacks they have learned during the course of the game. These attacks use up SP (Special Points), and can only be used if the Ally has enough SP to perform a certain Special Attack.
  • ItemCommandBlockM&amp;LSSBM Items: Mario, Luigi or the Allies can use any usable items they have obtained throughout their adventure in battle. These items can help them in many ways; recovering HP/BP (Mushrooms, Syrup Jars and Candies), removing negative status ailments (Refreshing Herbs), boosting stats (Peppers), etc.
  • FleeCommandBlockM&amp;LSSBM Flee: If the player thinks they cannot win a battle (or does not want to fight an enemy), striking this block will cause Mario, Luigi and the currently ally to run away from the battle, losing coins as they do so (though the Ally will leave immediately). Mashing 3DS A or 3DS B will cause them to run away faster, though they will occasionally trip and fall, losing even more coins, when fighting weak enemies and having high SPEED stats makes fleeing quicker so the player will not lose that much coins. This can be cancelled by pressing 3DS L. Mario and Luigi cannot flee from some battles or from boss battles.
    • During Circus Battle Waves in the Bittercold Tent, the bros can forfeit the battle by simply choosing this option, though they will not lose any coins and the game will ask the player if they really want to forfeit.

Stats

  • HP (abbreviation of Heart Points) is the amount of health Mario, Luigi and the Allies have. When an enemy hits either of them, they lose HP, though this can be recovered by using Mushrooms and/or other items. When a bro's HP reaches zero, they will faint and they must be carried when defending, making it a slight liability with the battling brother, but they can be revived with 1-Up items. If the Ally's HP hits zero, they will faint as well, though the bros will not carry them. If all characters hit zero HP, it means Game Over. Enemies have HP too, and when they hit zero HP, they will explode and leave behind coins and drop an Item Gift that contains an item. This stat can be permanently upgraded by 1/3 points by using Health Beans (DX) or Health Beaniespressos (DX).
  • BP (abbreviation of Bros. Points) is used for Mario and Luigi to use powerful moves known as Bros. Attacks when they obtain them via Attack Pieces. Each Bros. Attack consumes a certain amount of BP, draining the total, and if they do not have a certain amount of BP, they cannot use that Bros. Attack. BP can be restored by using Syrup Jars and/or other items. This stat can be permanently upgraded by 1/3 points by using Bros. Beans (DX) or Bros. Beaniespressos (DX).
    • SP (abbreviation of Special Points) is used by the Allies to perform their powerful moves known simply as Special Attacks, similar to the bros's BP. SP can be restored by using Syrup Jars and/or other items, and can be permanently upgraded by 1/3 points by using Bros. Beans (DX) or Bros. Beaniespressos (DX), similar to BP.
  • POW (abbreviation of Power) shows how strong either Mario, Luigi, the Allies and the enemies are. The higher their POW stats are, the more damage they will perform. This stat can be boosted temporarily in battle with Red Peppers, and permanently upgraded by 1/3 points by using Power Beans (DX) or Power Beaniespressos (DX).
  • DEF (abbreviation of Defense) shows how much damage either Mario, Luigi, the Allies and the enemies can take from opposing attacks. The higher their DEF stats are, the less damage they will take. This stat can be boosted temporarily in battle with Green Peppers, and permanently upgraded by 1/3 points by using Defense Beans (DX) or Defense Beaniespressos (DX).
  • SPEED shows how fast Mario, Luigi, the Allies and the enemies are. If an enemy has greater speed they will attack first, and if Mario and/or Luigi have greater speed they will attack first. SPEED also helps the bros in fleeing from battles faster depending how weak an enemy is. This stat can be boosted temporarily in battle with Blue Peppers, and permanently upgraded by 1/3 points by using Speed Beans (DX) or Speed Beaniespressos (DX).
  • STACHE (short for Mustache) is Mario and Luigi's most unique stat. The higher a bro's STACHE stat is, the greater the chances of that bro landing a Lucky Hit, which doubles the power of attacks, and also the greater the chances of enemies dropping items after being defeated by said bro. Also, the player will be more likely to get hits on Scratch Cards with more STACHE. This stat can be permanently upgraded by 1/3 points by using Stache Beans (DX) or Stache Beaniespressos (DX).
    • FLUKE is the Ally's unique stat, which is similar to the effects of STACHE in battle. FLUKE can be permanently upgraded by 1/3 points by using Stache Beans (DX) or Stache Beaniespressos (DX), similar to STACHE.

Badges

Badges reappear in Mario & Luigi: Sage Quest, acting similar to the Badges in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. Mario and Luigi obtain a pair of badges, the Starter and Mush Badge, from a cloaked Cactaceonian in Cragnelburg for free once they retrieve the Jewel Vase from Craggy Catacombs and bring it back to her, and later on in the game, she will have more badges to sell for a fairly expensive price. During battle, a Badge Meter on the bottom screen will fill up as the Mario Bros. attack successfully, with a better rating attacks filling up the meter faster. When the two badges meet at any point on the meter, one of the circles on the bottom screen will show an icon, and tapping it on the Touch Screen will yield a helpful effect that can help the party. If all slot icons are taken up, future badge icons will be stored, though only up to five can be stored at once. The bros can change the badge combination as well, though this immediately resets the Badge Meter.

Here are a list of badges the brothers can buy, and the list of badge combination effects:

Badge Cost Badge
Starter Badge
"A badge for starters."
Free Free Mush Badge
"A badge that recovers HP."
Rookie Badge
"A badge for rookies."

Ranks

After all enemies are defeated in a battle, provided that either character in the party are still standing, they will earn Experience Points, which, should they reach a certain amount of, allows them to level up, which increases their stat attributes, making them stronger. They will also be able to increase their stats even more using a roulette provided by a Fishin' Lakitu (Fishin' Boo when the bros level up in the Conundrum Manor). Once a bro/an ally reaches a certain level (a level that is a multiple of eight for the bros, and a level that is a multiple of twelve for the Allies), they will go up in "Ranks" (Rank Up), which functions similarly to Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam; the player can choose a Rank-Up Bonus to give to Mario or Luigi upon reaching a new rank. Upon reaching Rainbow Rank for the bros, the player can choose two Rank-Up Bonuses, and upon reaching Sidekick Rank, the ally will earn a special weapon/armor alongside being able to pick two Rank-Up Bonuses. Only six ranks are in the game for the bros, one less than Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, and allies have four ranks. At a certain rank, the bros can shop at rank-specific shops in the Shroom Mall and an ally will earn a new Special Attack.

The max level cap for the bros is level 99, while the max level cap for the Allies is level 40.

  • Bros. Ranks:
    • Mushroom Rank (default)
    • Shell Rank (Level 8)
    • Flower Rank (Level 16; allows the bros to shop at the Flower Shop)
    • Leaf Rank (Level 24)
    • Star Rank (Level 32; allows the bros to shop at the Star Shop)
    • Rainbow Rank (Level 40; allows the bros to pick two Rank-Up Bonuses and to shop at the Rainbow Shop)
  • Allies Ranks:
    • Companion (default)
    • Acquaintance (Level 12; ally gains a new Special Attack)
    • Apprentice (Level 24; ally gains a new Special Attack)
    • Sidekick (Level 36; ally can pick two Rank-Up Bonuses and gains a special weapon/armor)

The Rank-Up Bonuses are the following:

Allies

New to the battle system is the "Ally" system, introduced in Mario & Luigi: Sage Quest. The current ally out will spectate the battle in the background, either cheering for Mario and Luigi, looking shocked when Mario and Luigi take damage/are KOed, etc. Mario and Luigi can select the call in/switch of from the current ally at any time, but this will waste a turn (unless either bro are wearing the "Quickswitch Token"). When called in, the ally can attack with their own weapons and from a list of Special Attacks (that have been unlocked), can use items for Mario and Luigi, can go back into the background. They are also vulnerable to being attacked, though they can dodge attacks if 3DS Y is pressed before they attack, and even counterattack if button is pressed right before an enemy makes contact with them. The first two Special Attacks an Ally has are unlocked initially (with the exception of Moon Chomp; he has the first three unlocked from the start), which will get stronger each time the bros level up, but at a certain rank, they will earn a new Special Attack.

Character Description

Rhea
Joins at Brisk Fields.
A Moonar who formerly lived in Moonshade Kingdom, being Tethys's best friend. She joins the Mario Bros., hoping she can reunite with her friend during their journey. Rhea attacks using her Moon Cutlass and her lunar energy, which gets stronger as the journey goes on.
Starting level: 2
  • HP: 18
  • SP: 12
  • POW: 15
  • DEF: 14
  • SPEED: 17
  • FLUKE: 13
Rhea's Special Attacks
Attack Availability Description
Moon Blast
4 SP
Initial Rhea focuses and charges up a ball of lunar energy in her hands. By holding down 3DS Y, the player fills the gauge on the top right corner of the screen, and when the star icon at the end of the gauge lights up, the player must release the button for Rhea to throw the ball at the enemy. Depending on when the player releases the button, the attack will yield either an "OK" ~ "Excellent!". If the player fails to release 3DS Y when the star icon lights up, Rhea will burn her hands, and the attack will end with no damage being dealt.
Lunar Remedy
4 SP
Initial Rhea focuses her lunar energy to recover her or bros' HP. As the energy is focused into the characters, once it ends, tapping 3DS Y at the right time (right before the attack ends) will make the attack yield an "Excellent!" and the move will recover a lot of HP, otherwise it will yield either "Nothing", an "OK", a "Good!" or a "Great!" and the move will recover less HP.
Satellite Disk
7 SP
Unlockable Rhea throws a disk of lunar energy forward at an enemy. Pressing 3DS Y just as the disk leaves the screen will cause the move to yield an "Excellent!", dealing more damage, though earlier than this will yield a "Great!" or less, which makes the move deal less damage. It attacks similar to the Geno Whirl move from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, though it does not deal 9999 damage when the player pushes the correct button at the right time (unless it is performed on a weak enemy).
Lunar Beam
12 SP
Unlockable Rhea charges up a beam of lunar energy. A gauge will appear in the top left corner of the screen, that starts to fill up. When the gauge passes a circle, 3DS Y must be pressed. If the player misses the Action Command, or their timing is off, the move will end and will yield an attack rating less than an "Excellent!" depending on how many gauges they have filled. The potential attack power increases with each gauge completed out of the total five.

Quahoyster
Joins at East Sapphire Shore.
A violet-colored Oystearl who was an outcast to other Oystearls like him in Sapphire Oceanbed. He is found sleeping in the sands of Sapphire Shore, and is awoken by Rhea. Quahoyster is a defensive-type Ally; defending Mario and Luigi from harm at the cost of taking damage himself.
Starting level: 7
  • HP: 32
  • SP: 18
  • POW: 21
  • DEF: 34
  • SPEED: 25
  • FLUKE: 22
Quahoyster's Special Attacks
Attack Availability Description
Pearl Kick
6 SP
Initial Quahoyster takes out the pearl from his clam-shell body and kicks at the enemies. Pressing 3DS Y will cause him to kick the pearl, but missing will stun him for a brief moment. The pearl will also change position, and the player must use 3DS Stick/3DS Pad to move Quahoyster to where the pearl is going to land. After landing six hits, Quahoyster will charge up for the final hit, and will move slower than usual, though the player manages to land the last hit, the attack will yield an "Excellent". If all enemies are defeated before the final hit, the attack will end, making it impossible to land an "Excellent".
Shell Shield
3 SP
Initial Quahoyster retracts his feet and closes his eyes. Just when he does this, the player must tap 3DS Y, which will yield either an "Excellent!" or less if the player taps it too late ("OK" or nothing) or too early ("Good!" or "Great!"). Quahoyster will enlarge himself and plant himself next to which bro the player selected, defending them for one turn. Quahoyster will take the damage for Mario and Luigi, though it is significantly decreased depending on what attack rating the player earned.
Bivalve Absorb
4 SP
Unlockable Quahoyster opens his clam-shell body and walks up to the bro the player selected, absorbing all weak enemy projectiles without taking damage. If the player presses 3DS Y when Quahoyster absorbs at least one projectile, he will fire it back at the enemy, dealing damage, although the projectile deals 150% more damage than usual. Unlike other Special Attacks, the move does not yield an attack rating.

Pressing 3DS Y right when his hand flashes for a brief period will cause Randal to snatch an item that can be dropped from the enemy as well as dealing slight damage to them. If the player does not press the button at the right time, Randal will trip over and fall on the enemy, dealing damage, but he will not steal an item from them.

Smokescreen Bomb
3 SP
Initial Randal gets out a smoke grenade and unpins it. Pressing 3DS Y will cause him to throw the bomb at an enemy to deal slight damage to them, and also to create a smokescreen that causes all grounded enemies to get confused and waste a turn. This has no effect on Flying enemies or bosses.
Watermelon Seedshooter
10 SP
Unlockable Randal gets out a watermelon and starts to eat it (somehow). Mashing 3DS Y will fill a gauge on the top right corner of the screen, but they should not fill it up, otherwise Randal will get sick from eating and the attack will end without dealing damage.

Tethys's Special Attacks
Attack Availability Description
Shrapnel Explosive
6 SP
Initial Tethys gets out metal grenade, unpins it and rears back. While he rears back, the player must hold down 3DS Y, and can aim at other enemies using 3DS Stick/3DS Pad, moving the cursor slowly. If Tethys rears back too much, he will fall on his back and the attack will end without any damage behind done. If the player releases 3DS Y just before he falls back, Tethys will throw the bomb at the selected target, dealing major damage to them and releasing metal shrapnel that hits the surrounding enemies depending on if the enemy hit by the bomb is grounded or airborne.
Inspector Visor
0 SP
Initial Tethys uses his visor to scan the enemies. A cursor will appear, and the player must direct to an enemy, using 3DS Stick/3DS Pad. Pressing 3DS Y when the cursor is on an enemy will cause him to tattle on it, similar to how Goombario and Goombella tattle on enemies in Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door respectively; revealing their stats and their item drops in battle. This also collects data of them to add to the Bestiary Log.
Hovercopter Novabeam
12 SP
Unlockable Tethys calls in his Hovercopter and jumps inside it. He then backs up, activates the hover machine's laser blaster and charges up. The player must hold down the 3DS Y as it charges up, filling up a gauge at the top right corner of the screen. Once the star icon at the end lights up, the player must release the button for Tethys to fire a giant laser beam, which will deal rapid damage to all enemies. Depending on what attack rating the move yields at the end, the amount of damage dealt increases. If the player overcharges, the Hovercopter will overheat, and the move will end without any damage being dealt.
Supernova Blast
15 SP
Unlockable Tehys calls in his Hovercopter and jumps inside it. He then flies up into the sky and activates the hover machine's laser blaster to fire off a huge energy orb that falls down to enemies. The laser blaster can be seen on the top screen, and by tapping 3DS Y, he will fire miniature orbs that will make the huge orb grow in size. The orb will move around, so the player must use 3DS Stick/3DS Pad to move. After a few seconds, the orb will crash down onto the enemies, creating a huge explosion that heavily damages all enemies. If the orb spikes in growth three times, the attack will yield an "Excellent!", lesser than will yield a "Great!" or less.

Moon Chomp's Special Attacks
Attack Availability Description
Charging Lunge
7 SP
Initial Moon Chomp winds back, flicking the 3DS Stick left so he can move back. Once he flashes, releasing the Stick will cause Moon Chomp to fly forward, ramming into a row of enemies to deal damage. Depending on what rating the move yields, it will do more damage (just when Moon Chomp flashes will yield an "Excellent!", too earlier or later than that will yield a "Great!" or less).
Menacing Bark
4 SP
Initial Moon Chomp charges up, with a gauge at the top right corner of the screen filling up. Once the star icon at the end of said gauge lights up, pressing 3DS Y will cause Moon Chomp to bark at the enemies, lowering their Power, Defense and Speed stats when the attack yields an "Excellent!". If it yields lower than that, the move will either lower two out of the three stats mentioned (if the attack yields "Great!") or just one of them (if the attack yields "Good!" or lower).
Chomp Lick
4 SP
Initial Moon Chomp moves in front of the selected bro and licks them, recovering their HP. Pressing 3DS Y just before he licks them will cause the move to yield an "Excellent!" and recover even more HP, otherwise it will yield either "Nothing", an "OK", a "Good!" or a "Great!" and the move will recover less HP. The added bonus for yielding an "Excellent!" with the attack is that it will temporarily boost one of the bro's stats.
Chomp Chew
12 SP
Unlockable Moon Chomp walks up to an enemy and bites them when the player presses 3DS Y. While they are caught in his mouth, Moon Chomp will start to chew on them, in which the player must mash 3DS Y to rapidly deal damage to the enemy and raise the attack rating up from "Good!" to "Excellent!". If they are not defeated by the attack, Moon Chomp will then spit them out at a random enemy to deal damage to both enemies.

He is heard many times in Eclipsa Castle over the intercom, creating robots like Craterovers, Saturn IV Driones, Moondroids and many more for his mistress' army. After facing off against Titan and Crabot in the castle sewers, Mario and Luigi fight him near the top floor of the castle (with the Moon Clock assisting him), though he is defeated, leaving behind a key before escaping, though he gets into a brief argument with Bowser Jr., who is with Kamek. At the end of the game, he is thrown in the castle's prison alongside Eclipsa for their crimes.

Queen Eclipsa
Queen Eclipsa is the current ruler of the Moonshade Kingdom and the younger sister of King Neith. After King Neith's "mysterious" disappearance (in reality she just kidnapped him and trapped himself inside a chest and hid it inside the castle's basement one night). After becoming the new ruler, many residents left the kingdom while others stayed behind to dethrone her. She is the main antagonist of the game, though she is not fought throughout the majority of the game until the player reaches Moonshade Kingdom, where she is fought in Eclipsa Castle. At the end of the game, she is thrown in the castle's prison alongside Callisto for their crimes.

King Neith
King Neith was the ruler of the Moonshade Kingdom and the older brother of Eclipsa. One night he was kidnapped by his younger sister and trapped inside a chest which she hid in the castle's basement, though nobody knows this, and they thought he mysterious disappeared. While he is absent for majority of the game, he appears in Eclipsa Castle, late in the game. King Neith is freed by the Mario Bros. with a key that Nabbit stole from Callisto, and opens the door leading to the throne room. After Eclipsa's at to a greater extent, Lunar Bowser's defeat, he claims back his throne, becoming the ruler of the Moonshade Kingdom once again.
Toadette - Mario &amp; Luigi Paper Jam
Toadette
Toadette is a notable female Toad who appears frequently as Toad's partner (though it is debated that she is his love interest or the two are siblings). Toadette appears in Toad Town in her own Toad House designed after her mushroom cap and having miniature versions of the Papercrafts from Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam inside. When talked to, Toadette references the events of the aforementioned game and mentions her time as an archivist in the Toad Brigade. She looks at the bros's records in this game, awarding items based on their progress with Blocks, Beans, the number of battles won, the number of enemies defeated, the number of Excellent attacks done and the number of battles fled from. She also gives the bros an "amiiboard" so the player can scan their amiibos.

Slanito
Slanito is a Poison Toad, fed up with a lot of things in the past. He is found in Plumdrop Rainforest, having "a score to settle with" Polluted Petey Piranha. Slanito makes a truce with Mario and Luigi after battling them so the they can fry a bigger fish in the forest. After Polluted Petey Piranha is defeat, Slanito thanks the bros and leaves, never to be seen again, not even in the ending sequence. Though Slanito joins the bros's adventure temporarily, he does not count as an Ally, as he does not have any overworld abilities or any battle moves.
no image
Pikasmith
Pikasmith is, as his name implies, a rabbit blacksmith who resides in Rabbit Village. When Mario and Luigi visit the village the first time to obtain some Hammers, the rabbit villagers tell them that he is off to the eastern part of Brisk Fields to get more resources, though when they meet up with him he is attacked by two Needlorbs. After saving him, Pikasmith creates two Hammers for Mario and Luigi once they go to his house in Rabbit Village. His name is a portmanteau of Pika and blacksmith.

The Glochildren
Peroski and Schlumbert
The Glochildren, Peroski and Schlumbert, are two young Cactaceonian daredevils who live in a town district of Cragnelburg. Visiting said district before Hisstocrat is defeated, they will be absent from the area, though after beating Hisstocrat, they will be there. They teach Mario and Luigi the Spin Jump early in the game, and later on teach them the Spring Jump once they revisit Craggy Desert to go to Fort Fossil. Their name are a portmanteau of "glochid"; the hair-like spines or short prickles, generally barbed, found on the areoles of the Opuntioideae cacti sub-family, and "children". Peroski's name comes from the genus of cacti Pereskiopsis and Schlumbert's name comes from the small genus of cacti Schlumbergera and the word "bert" (short form of the name "Albert"), derived from the Germanic element "beraht", which means "bright".

Sergeant P. Beetle
Sergeant P. Beetle is a gray-shelled Para-Beetle that wears goggles and commands a squadron of red-shelled Para-Beetles in Bittercold Isle. Once Mario and Luigi reach the top of Mount Grumbledome during their first visit, he and his Para-Beetle squad can be seen through the mountain's telescope near the summit. He appears once again when the bros reach the summit of the mountain, where he and his squadron fly by Luigi, who is looking inside the volcano's crater, knocking him into the crater. He reappears when the bros revisit the mountain, where he and his troops help Mario and company ascend the mountain (either to other sections or to the very summit), similar to Sergeant Flutter's role in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.

Species

  • Beanish - A bean-like humanoid species with huge mouths that are occupants of the Beanbean Kingdom. They are mainly found at Bittercold Isle, donning eskimo clothing to keep out the cold.
    • Hoohooligans - Upright bean-like species that have a body structure very comparable to a cactus and inhabit Hoohoo Village back in the Beanbean Kingdom, though two Hoohooligans can be found in Cragnelburg.
  • Boos - A ghost-like species that inhabit haunted areas, mostly Ghost Houses/mansions. They mainly do not like being looked at. Boos only appear in Conundrum Manor in this game. King Boo and Jumb-Boo are notable members of the Boo species, and the Broozers, Boo Guys and Snufits are derived members of the species.
  • Cactaceonians - A cactus-like species that inhabit the town of Cragnelburg in the Mushroom Kingdom. The Glochildren and the cloaked figure are notable members of this species.
  • Moonars - A crescent moon-like species that inhabit the Moonshade Kingdom, ruled by King Neith before the events of the game. King Neith, Queen Eclipsa, Rhea, Tethys, Callisto and Antheny are notable members of the Moonar species.
  • Stumplings - A species of tree stump-like creatures that inhabit Treeway Woods, which is swarmed with many Buzzaps. They are known for speaking grammatically incorrect English. One notable Stumpling named "Trunkpleasant" is an example of this, and his speech is quite similar to that of Fawful's, minus the food metaphors and whatnot. "M. Bark", an elderly Stumpling, speaks with correct grammar though, so not all members of the species speaks with incorrect English grammar (though M. Bark claims to have learned the "language of walking tree-humans", so it is assumed that he was taught how to speak properly).
  • Toads - A species of mushroom-like humanoids that inhabit the Mushroom Kingdom, residing in many towns and cities throughout the entire kingdom. Most of them are found in Toad Town, but others are found in many other locations. Mailtoad, Monstoad, Toadette, Banktoad and Trial Toad are notable members of this species.
    • Eski-toads - Toads that don eskimo parkas to keep out the cold, mainly found in Bittercold Isle.
    • Poison Toads - A Toad sub-species based on the Poison Mushrooms. Only one (notable) Poison Toad appears in the game, that one being Slanito.
    • Shroom Spirits - Deceased Toads that presumably passed away in Conundrum Manor, found in vases throughout the area, giving vital hints to the bros. Two Shroom Spirits in particular teach Mario and Luigi the Mole and Mini-Mario techniques.
  • Yoshis - A sentient species of omnivorous dinosaurs that appear in various locations in the Mushroom Kingdom, though they are native to Yoshi's Island.

Objects

See also: Blocks and Coins.

A list of objects that Mario and Luigi can interact with in this game.

Object Description
+ Clocks + Clocks (or Plus Clocks) are clocks that give Mario and Luigi extra time to complete minigames, with cyan ones giving three seconds and green ones giving five. They are only found in Circus Dexterity Courses.
Groundhollows Groundhollows can be found in the ground, and when Mario comes out from underground beneath these hollows when doing the Mole Mario technique, the bros will acquire some 50 Gold Coins, 100 Gold Coins, Beans, and, in the case of ? Block-shaped groundhollows, Items and Clothing.
Rings Yellow Rings create a line of 10 Coins that appear for a set amount of time before disappearing completely. Red Rings create eight Red Coins in an area, and after collecting all of them will reveal invisible ? Blocks.
Spine Coaster Spine Coasters are rideable creatures made of bone, taking their design from Super Mario 3D Land. They only appear in Bowser's Castle, used to pass through lava pits. When they reach the end of the track, they fall in the lava, and Mario and Luigi must use the Spin Jump to reach across to the other side.
Switches Many switches can be found in the game, usually activated by hitting them with a hammer, though some can be activated by stepping on them, like P Switches. Switches have lots of functions; some of them open doors leading to other rooms, activate certain objects that are found deactivated at first, etc.
Signs Many signs can be found in the game, and the Mario Bros can read them, often giving them directions to other locations they can go, giving them hints on what they must do, etc.
Warp Pipes Green Warp Pipes take Mario and Luigi to another area/location when entered. Yellow Warp Pipes can transport the bros to underwater or underground areas and vice versa. Red Warp Pipes take Mario and Luigi to a corresponding pipe in the area. Finally, golden Warp Pipes called Fast-Travel Pipes can be created by hitting Pipe Blocks, which connect to different parts of the Mushroom Kingdom and the Moonshade Kingdom.
Whirlwinds Whirlwinds are objects that, if Mario and Luigi Spin Jump into them, they will be sucked into it and will be launched high up in the air before slowly descending, though in the case of whirlwinds in the air, they can be launched sideways, farther than they could normally go.

Obstacles

A list of obstacles Mario and Luigi must overcome in this game.

Obstacle Description
Fire Bar Fire Bars are are rotating rods made of fireballs, mainly found in Grumbledome Crater and Bowser's Castle, though they appear in other locations. If Mario and Luigi touch them, they will be sent to the last platform they were on.
Lava Lava is an obstacle that can be seen in Grumbledome Crater (though it is impossible to fall in it) and Bowser's Castle. If Mario and Luigi fall in it, they will be sent to the last platform they were on.
Poisoned Water Poisoned Water is an obstacle that only can be seen in Plumdrop Rainforest. If Mario and Luigi fall in it, they will be sent to the last platform they were on.
Quicksand Quicksand is an obstacle that only can be seen in Craggy Catacombs. If Mario and Luigi fall in it, they will sink into the quicksand and will be sent to the last platform they were on.
Spiked Ball Spiked Balls are black metal balls with spikes that are mainly thrown by Spikes, though they appear in other locations, rolling across the ground. If Mario and Luigi touch them, they will be sent to the last platform they were on.
Spike Traps Spiked Traps are harmful obstacles that can be stationary or retractable. Spike Traps can be seen in pits or on platforms. If Mario and Luigi touch them, they will be sent to the last platform they were on.
Spinners Spiked Balls are black metal balls, mainly found in Craggy Catacombs, Bowser's Castle and Eclipsa Castle. They make pendulum movements, similar to how they did in Super Mario 3D Land. If Mario and Luigi touch them, they will be sent to the last platform they were on. Large Spinners can be found as well.
Tweesters Tweesters are Tornado-like enemies that follows Mario and Luigi while they traverse through Craggy Desert. When they touch the bros, they will be sent to another location. Sometimes, touching them is a poor choice, though in other situations, they will be sent onto a platform with a Bandit, and on a platform with a ? Block.

Clothing

A list of clothing gear that Mario, Luigi and the Ally can equip themselves with in Mario & Luigi: Sage Quest. Most equipment can be bought from Gear Shops from certain locations.

Bros. Attacks

A list of Bros. Attacks that Mario and Luigi obtain during their adventure by collecting ten Attack Pieces in a single area, either by hitting Attack Piece Blocks or completing certain tasks. There are ten Bros. Attacks, five of which are shared between each bro. Two Bros. Attacks from Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam return in this game; the Drill Shell Bros. Attack and the Mega Thwonk Bros. Attack.

AttackPieceM&amp;LDT Mario's Bros. Attacks AttackPieceM&amp;LDT
Attack Description
3DRedShellM&amp;LPJ
3D Red Shell
3 BP
10 Toad Town Attack Pieces
Targets the selected enemy.
Mario and Luigi run into the foreground, where Mario will take out a Red Shell and kick it at the selected enemy. Luigi will kick the Red Shell back at the enemy after it rebounds off of them towards him, and Mario will do the same once again. Each time the shell rebounds from an enemy and returns to a bro, the player must press 3DS A for Mario and 3DS B for Luigi respectively, this repeating three more times. After the Red Shell hits five times, Luigi will then kick the Red Shell towards Mario, who blasts it at one of the enemies, ending the attack. If the enemy is defeated before the attack ends, the bros will target another random enemy, though if all enemies are defeated before the attack ends, the player messes up, or the player tries to attack a flying enemy, the move will end prematurely.
FireFlowerM&amp;LPJ
Fire Flower
5 BP
10 Craggy Desert Attack Pieces
Targets all enemies.
Mario pulls out a Fire Flower to turn him and Luigi into their fire forms, and the two will begin charging and hurling fireballs at the enemies erratically. The player must press 3DS A or 3DS B for Mario and Luigi, respectively, to launch fireballs randomly at the enemies, fully charged fireballs (that flash to signal this) doing the most damage. If the fireballs are fired prematurely, they will do considerably less damage and none at all if the fireballs are charged too long. If all fireballs are thrown appropriately, Mario and Luigi will eventually start charging fireballs rapidly, the player having to mash 3DS A and 3DS B in order to throw as many as possible at the enemies. These fireballs can possibly inflict Burn/Char on enemies, and deals 150% more damage to ice creatures.
no image
Mirage Mirror
8 BP
10 Conundrum Manor Attack Pieces
Targets all enemies.
Mario gets out a mirror and throws it in the air. Mario and Luigi jump into it before it disappears. Multiple mirrors that show reflections of Mario and Luigi (or both of them at once) faintly start appearing from thin air in random places, surrounding the enemies. One of the bros will jump from said mirror to stomp on the enemies. The player must press 3DS A for Mario or 3DS B for Luigi, depending on which bro pops from the mirror and stomps on the enemies, though if two of them jump out of the mirror, the player must press 3DS A and 3DS B together. The sequence will speed up overtime. If the player messes up the Action Command once, a bro tries to stomp on a spiked/fire enemy without the Iron Boots (DX)/Frost Boots (DX) equipped, or all enemies are defeated, the attack will end (in the case of the middle situation, the bro who tries to stomp on the enemy will take damage). This move is similar to the Magic Window from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.
BoulderSmashM&amp;LSQ
Boulder Smash
11 BP
10 Grumbledome Crater Attack Pieces
Targets all enemies.
Mario and Luigi start to head away from the enemies, where Mario gets out a Rock Mushroom and eats it to turn into Rock Mario. He starts culminating rocks, in which the player must mash 3DS A, to turn into a boulder. Luigi hops onto Mario and starts rolling towards the group of enemies, using the 3DS Stick/3DS Pad to balance Luigi so he does not fall off. When Luigi reaches the enemies, Luigi will hop off and kick the boulder at the enemies if the player presses 3DS B, which can lead to a "Good!" to "Excellent!" depending on how huge the boulder is. If Luigi falls off the boulder, the attack will end without any damage being done, and if Luigi does not kick the boulder, the attack will do minor damage to all enemies hit by the boulder, and will result in an "OK".
no image
Umbriel Cannon
15 BP
Find and bring back the Moonanball for the cannon.
Targets the selected enemy.
Mario gets out an Umbriel Cannon, and throws it on the ground. Luigi will load it with a Moonanball, and the bros will start to lift the cannon. The player must mash 3DS A and 3DS B so they can lift it. After lifting it high above their heads, the player can use 3DS Stick or 3DS Pad to move the bros to aim the cannon at an enemy (though Mario and Luigi will move slowly). Pressing 3DS A will make Mario throw the cannon on the ground. Luigi will then pull the rope when the player presses 3DS B, which will cause a Moonanball to be fired out of the cannon and hit a row of weak enemies or hit a single strong enemy, dealing major damage. If the player does not manage to lift the cannon at the beginning, does not put the cannon down after lifting it, fails to aim the cannon at any enemy, or does not pull the rope at the end, the attack will end without any damage done (with the latter situation causing the cannon to squib fire). Luigi will go back to get the Moonanball after the move ends successfully.

Attack Description
3DGreenShellM&amp;LPJ
3D Green Shell
4 BP
10 Brisk Fields Attack Pieces
Targets all enemies.
Mario and Luigi run into the foreground, where Luigi will take out a Green Shell and kick it at one of the enemies. Mario will kick the Green Shell back at the enemies after it rebounds off the enemy towards him, and Luigi will do the same once again. Each time the shell rebounds from an enemy and returns to a bro, the player must press 3DS B for Luigi and 3DS A for Mario respectively, this repeating three more times. After the Green Shell hits six times, Mario will then kick the Green Shell towards Luigi, who blasts it at one of the enemies, ending the attack. If all enemies are defeated before the attack ends, the player messes up, or the player tries to attack a flying enemy, the move will end prematurely.
DrillShellM&amp;LPJ
Drill Shell
6 BP
10 Sapphire Shore Attack Pieces
Targets the selected enemy.
Luigi gets out a cone-shaped, clay-red shell and puts it on his head and jumps on Mario. When Mario jumps toward to the enemy, the player must press 3DS A to let Mario and Luigi plunge downwards to hit the enemy with the shell head to deal damage. Depending on where the enemy is hit, the attack will yield an "OK" or a "Good!". Mario will start to spin Luigi around, and while Luigi is spinning, start mashing 3DS B to do a small amount of damage repeatedly in a fast rate; in the case of an "OK" or a "Good!" the shell will make yellow sparks, in case of a "Great!", it will spark blue and in case of an "Excellent!" the screen is yellow and sparks purple. After it ended with an "Excellent!", the bros. will put their hands on their head that act like the shell to celebrate.
KiteCrashM&amp;LSQ
Kite Crash
7 BP
10 Plumdrop Rainforest Attack Pieces
Targets the selected enemy.
Mario and Luigi will go into the foreground and Luigi gets out a kite and gives it to Mario before jumping on the kite. Mario will start to run towards the enemies, and as he does, mash 3DS A for Mario to move much faster and the kite to fly higher. They can also use 3DS Stick/3DS Pad to move Mario side to side to target an enemy. As Mario reaches the enemies, time will slow down, and as soon as Luigi is under the enemy, press 3DS B to make Luigi to leap into the air and do a drilling stomp through the kite and on the enemy. After making contact with an enemy or the ground, a shockwave will be produced, damaging other enemies nearby. Depending on how fast Mario was running, the attack will yield either an "OK", a "Good!", a "Great!" or an "Excellent!". The drilling stomp also hits all enemies in a stack, like the Biddybuds. This attack is a combination of the Dropchopper Bros. Attack from Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and the Trio Kite Trio Attack from Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam.
IceFlowerM&amp;LSQ
Ice Flower
9 BP
10 Bittercold Isle Attack Pieces
Targets all enemies.
Luigi pulls out a Ice Flower to turn him and Mario into their ice forms, and the two will begin charging and hurling iceballs at the enemies erratically. The player must press 3DS A or 3DS B for Mario and Luigi, respectively, to launch iceballs randomly at the enemies, fully charged iceballs (that flash to signal this) doing the most damage. If the iceballs are fired prematurely, they will do considerably less damage and none at all if the iceballs are charged too long. If all iceballs are thrown appropriately, Mario and Luigi will eventually start charging up huge iceballs. The player must press 3DS A and 3DS B which when they see the flash in order to make the bros throw the iceballs into the air, which combines into an enormous iceball, which falls onto enemies and deals massive damage. The final hit of the attack has a chance of inflicting Freeze on enemies, and deals 150% more damage to flaming creatures.

10 Bowser's Castle Attack Pieces
Targets the selected enemy.
Mario and Luigi head away from the enemies, where Luigi takes out a Mega Mushroom and eats it to become Mega Luigi. Mario will hop on the hammerhead of Luigi's Hammer, and at this point, Luigi will start charging towards the enemy, and the player must press 3DS B every time one of his feet touches the ground to make him faster. Upon reaching the enemy, 3DS B must be pressed to hammer the enemy away (which also damages any other enemies on the battlefield nearby). If the player does not press 3DS B when Luigi approaches, then he falls over and the attack will fail with only minor damage done to the enemy. Once the enemy has been hammered into the air, Mario will then fall towards the flying enemy, and the 3DS A Button button must be pressed each time he is about to stomp and bounce off the enemy and keep the chain going, with each stomp increasing the attack rating, going from "OK" if Mario only stomps the enemy once to "Excellent!" if he manages to stomp it four times in a row. An "Excellent!" rating will also cause Mario and the enemy to slide across the ground for a bit afterwards, doing even more damage.

Boss Gauntlet

The Boss Gauntlet is an area found in the basement of Peach's Castle, which only accessible after they have learned the Spring Jump move. The Boss Gauntlet is similar to the Battle Ring in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, where Mario and Luigi face off against tougher versions of already-fought bosses (with the exception of the Big Tail Goomba, Randal the Bandit, Slanito, Jumb-Boo, Kamek (first battle), Mecha-Blooper and Tethys, Bowser?, Bowser, Eclipsa and Lunar Bowser) in a set number of turns (displayed by a Time Bob-omb on the top right corner of the screen). Mario and Luigi are also given a set number of items during these battles, and are given two-three random Allies to help them out. After a Battle Class is beaten, another one is added. If Mario and Luigi do not fight any bosses that are in the gauntlet, they will be locked until they have defeated them.

  • Gauntlet Class #1: Wiggler DX (6 turn limit, recommended level is 14, 100 coin fee, 600 coin reward)
  • Gauntlet Class #2: Hisstocrat DX (8 turn limit, recommended level is 17, 150 coin fee, 900 coin reward)
  • Gauntlet Class #3: Polluted Petey Piranha DX (13 turn limit, recommended level is 20, 200 coin fee, 1200 coin reward)
  • Gauntlet Class #4: King Boo DX (16 turn limit, recommended level is 25, 250 coin fee, 1500 coin reward)
  • Gauntlet Class #5: Elite Trio DX (14 turn limit, recommended level is 28, 300 coin fee, 1800 coin reward)

Radio Player

The Radio Player option contained in the game allows the player to listen to the songs in the game by collecting Tape Recordings of the game's original soundtrack (OST) from ? Blocks scattered across the Mushroom Kingdom and Moonshade Kingdom (or by other methods). The music is played through Rhea's radio back in the Moonshade Kingdom, and Rhea and Tethys can be seen, and depending on what music is being played, their expression changes. Prior to completing the game, Jammin' Toad can be seen playing the music through his headphones. As in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, the music can be played through headphones even with the system closed. This option is locked until the player collects five different Tape Recordings.

Note the only Tape Recording that does not need to be collected (and is unlocked by default) is the "3DS Banner" track.

Sound Test

In the Radio Player, there is a Sound Test. Unlike in the Radio Player, Rhea and Tethys are nowhere to be seen, and does not need Tape Recordings to unlock, as they are all unlocked from the beginning. The Sound Test plays voice clips of other characters like Mario and Luigi, and sounds like the text bubble speech and the attack rating sound effect.

Hard Mode

Hard Mode is an unlockable extra mode that is unlocked once the player completes the game on a save file at least once. Once the player resets that file and reopens it, after the introduction cutscene and after leaving Peach's Castle at the beginning of the game, a Toad will come up to Mario and Luigi, asking them if they want to wear "a pair of "something" that [he] found on the ground one time while [they] were on [their] previous adventure". If the bros choose to wear the item (though they are warned beforehand that "the consequences will be fatal" and "[they] will not be able to take it off after wearing it"), the Toad gives them the item, which activates the game's Hard Mode, though if they refuse, the Toad will leave, and they will not be able to get the item ever again on that file. After it is activated, the player cannot get out of this mode without resetting the file. In this mode, there are some notable changes:

  • Enemies are more stronger; having slightly higher POW and DEF stats, though their others stats are left untouched. They also will drop slightly more coins than usual when defeated.
  • Mario and Luigi's solo Jump and Hammer and the Ally's solo attacks have stricter Action Command timing.
  • The bros can only carry up to ten amounts of each item (twelve in the PAL and Japanese versions).
  • Items and Clothing now cost slightly more coins in shops.
  • Bros. and Special Attacks cost an extra one point of BP/SP.
  • The recommended level for facing bosses in the Boss/Nostalgic Gauntlet have increased by five (three in the PAL and Japanese versions).
  • The bros will have the Daredevil Pendant on their overalls.
  • The minigames are harder; Koopa the Quick's races are slightly more trickier as he runs much faster (though the courses remain unchanged), and the Circus Dexterity Courses are always on their "Skilled" difficult layout (and as such, player cannot play this minigame without learning the Ball Bros. move).
  • When the player receives a Game Over, they are immediately taken to the title screen, thus giving them no chance to retry.
  • Recovery Blocks are completely absent.
  • The player cannot save manually, they can only save at Save Blocks.

Upon beating the final boss in Hard Mode, the player will receive dialogue from a mysterious voice, telling them that [they] are a "super player" (a reference to Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels), and telling them that [they] get to view a "special surprise"; a two-screened image featuring all the main characters and main bosses in the game, similar to Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. Also, they will be given the "You Are A Super Player!" Tape Recording afterwards.

New Game +

New Game + (also known as New Game Plus or shortened to NG+) is an unlockable extra mode that is unlocked once the player achieves 100% completion on a save file at least once, shown by five shiny stars () on their file. To achieve this, the player is required to complete the following criteria prior to fighting the final boss:

Find and dig out all groundhollows in the game.
Find and hit all Blocks in the game, including Hidden Blocks, not counting Recovery, Roulette and Save Blocks.
Complete every sidequest in the game.
Obtain all trophies from the Boss / Nostalgic Gauntlet.
Defeat Skelletodactyl in the Trial Abyss.

After completing one of these objectives listed, a shiny star () will appear on their save file, and once the player has five of these on their file and they beat the final boss, the player will be given the option to "START A NEW GAME +" on the Touch Screen of the file select, and selecting this will create a third save file (effectively giving them three save files unlike other Mario & Luigi games besides Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga) different from the other two files (and being gold and shiny from others). Banktoad will even show up after the player leaves Peach's Castle at the beginning of the game, informing Mario and Luigi that the coins and items stored in the Toad Town Bank previously have been carried over to this file for them to collect (however, some items will fail to carry over; the only downside is that the player will not be able to collect them on that file), thus giving the player a starting advantage on that file.

Sidequests

See also: Expert Challenges and the Boss Gauntlet / Nostalgic Gauntlet.

A list of sidequests Mario and Luigi can complete in the game. Though these quests are optional, they are needed for 100% completion, which in turn unlocks the New Game + mode.

Toadette's Records

In Toad Town, Toadette can be found inside her own Toad House designed after her mushroom cap. Her role is similar to the Information Booth shopkeeper's role in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions; while she does allows the player to scan compatible amiibo to fill out what she calls an "amiiboard", she also looks at the player's records, and awards items based on their progress with Blocks, Beans, the number of battles won, the number of enemies defeated, the number of Excellent attacks done and the number of battles fled from.

Bestiary Log

In Toad Town, a Toad named "Monstoad" can be found inside a Toad House, who has a project to do for Funguspore Elementary, doing some research on the creatures of the Mushroom Kingdom, but he does not want to go out in the open. He then asks the Mario Bros. if they will go out and help him, telling them they will reward the bros with items for them. This sidequest cannot be done early on in the game, though when the player acquires Tethys, they can use his visor to scan the enemies in the overworld or in battle to add them to the log. Here is a list of rewards that the player can receive for doing this sidequest:

  • 10 enemies added to the log: 4 HealthBeanM&amp;LDT Health Beans
  • 20 enemies added to the log: 4
