Chapter 6: The Core of the Planet
MAN it is hot in here! Well, it is the middle of the planet. So, there isn't much to do, just try to avoid hot lava and Podoboos and try to get to the treasure chest on the other side of the lava pool. How will we do this... Oh that's right! We have Flote! Now just float across and there you are, a huge treasure chest! Now to open it.

Now that HE'S out of the way, let's see where the rest of this room leads. Oh, there's a treasure chest! Let's open it and find out what's inside...
Drat! It's locked. Well, now to find the key... Where is that darn thing? Maybe you should go through that door and see what's on the other side... OoOoOoOo! Whoa, it's the key! Now to go back. Oh, wait. The door's gone. Maybe you should turn invisible! Hey, it worked! The door's back! Now to go through and open that chest. Hey, what gives! We got the wrong key! And there's nowhere left to go! Let's go back to the other chest and see if there's anything mysterious. Hey, there's a hole in the bottom of the chest! Man, who thought of THAT idea? Man, he's annoying. Anyway, go down the hole, and there it is! The key! Now, how to get back up... Oh that's right! You have Spring Jump! Man, that was easy! So, go back to the other chest room again and unlock it. Finally, it works! Now to see what's in it.
You Didn't Get a New Partner!
Great, what use is and empty chest? Maybe you should turn invisible again... Hey, where did that Boo come from? Choose one:
Good choice! Wow, that was useful information! He told us that when in doubt, go invisible! Man, what a guy; just giving us that info, even after we popped out of nowhere, and without a catch too! Hey, and a door just popped out of nowhere! What luck! Go in the new door and 'omigosh!' There's Bowser! Oh no, wait. It's not Bowser. It's a cardboard cutout of Bowser. How anticlimactic. But wait!

Now you go all the way back up to the surface world and put the Opal Star in the next door. Hey something weird is happening! Another door is appearing! It's the last door! That must mean that you're WELL on your way to getting to that last Star!
Chapter 7: Outer Space
Wow, an outer space level for the 3rd game in a row! Well, this one's a little different... JUST KIDDING! It's actually more confusing than the last outer space. There are even MORE places to go, all the places look the same, and there are meteors. But the upside is that you found a magical map that hints where to go. That's pretty convenient. Here it is:
Man, this map is HARD to follow, now isn't it? Well, just keep traveling in that straight line and you're good to go. Whoa, that map was right! There's a floating door in the middle of outer space!Go in or find somewhere else:

Well, his flying ability will come in handy, considering there's a HUGE gorge right behind that door to the right! After this jump, you encounter a very large door with a very large lock. Let's jump in the large gorge and see if it doesn't kill us! Woo!!!!! Hey, it didn't! But what's in it might...
Max. HP: 120
Attacks: Darken (Makes the screen go dark, making only him able to attack); Bite (8 damage); Stomp (10 damage)
Whoa, he barfed up a key! Let's get back up to that door and unlock it. Now how to get back up... Oh that's right, you have Spring Jump! Now you unlock the door and uncover the mysteries inside of it...
Chapter 8: Outer Space, Part IIWhoa! A 2 part chapter!?! That's a first. Well, time to uncover the mysteries inside of the door. Hey, it's an old friend! It's Count Bleck! I wonder why he's here...

That was unexpected. Hmmmm... Why do all these people look so familiar... Omigosh! There Pixls! And there's a king, too! I wonder if he's as mean as the fabled Pixl Queen... Let's check! Awww... He says if we have anything to ask we have to ask the general... Let's do that! Uh-oh! He seems to be mad! Oh Noooooo!
Max. HP: 130
Attacks: Hammer Throw (6 damage); Claw (8 damage); Army (3 damage x 3 turns)
Once you beat the deranged and psychotic general, give that king a stern talking to! Hey, where'd he go? And what's that hole doing in the wall? And why are these clues so obvious? Let's go in the hole and see what's up. What's that king doing with that poor little Koopa? Oh no! He's draining it's power! He's getting bigger, and stronger, and better looking! Let's teach that guy a lesson!
Max. HP: 170

Chapter 9: Land of the Forgotten
Okay, that's a title with a lot of despair, but no worries! Anyway, it's time to fight your way through the land of 1-time (1-game) enemies and bosses. Woo-hoo. Well, now to start that journey. Hey, here's a good way to start off: fighting the first boss in the Paper Mario series EVER! It's... It's...
Max. HP: 80
Attacks: Reinforcements (Red and Blue Goomba are BACK! And this time they have 20 HP! And each has 5 attack and 0 defense! How scary!); Headbonk (5 damage); Tattle (He knows YOUR HP, so he knows exactly which move to use)
Defense: 7After that short battle, it's time to move on. Hey, this is kind of like the Pit of 100 Trials, only there are only 9 trials, and they're all 1-game enemies and bosses. Hit the Recovery Block and move on.
Max. HP: 99

Max. HP: 105
Attacks: Crystal Bits (3 damage x 3 = 9 damage); Icy Breath (8 damage); Illusion (Makes copies of himself, and if you don't find the real one in time, they do 8 damage x 3 = a whopping 24 damage)

Max. HP: 80
Attacks: Fire Breath (10 damage); Stomp (5 damage); Trick (If you fall for it, a devastating 30 damage, but it's nearly impossible to fall for anyway)

Max. HP: 120

Wooooooo! You're now on the LAST set of bosses! But these guys are the toughest of the tough, so be prepared...
Max. HP: 90
Attacks: Chomp (9 damage); 3-D (Turns 3-D for 2 turns, making you unable to attack, unless you have a shell...); Frackle (Calls in 2 Frackles, each do 1 damage every turn they are onstage)

Phew, that guy was HARD! Well, he disintegrates, and you just got yourself the 7th Super Star, the Glass Star! Don't drop it...
Man, only 2 more Super Stars to go! Now to go back to the Glitz Pillar and you just got yourself the 8th door. But wait... This is the last chapter, but you still have 2 more stars to get... This can only mean 1 thing... ANOTHER 2-PART CHAPTER!!! WOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
Chapters 10 & 11: The Neon Zone
Part 1Hey wait... This door leads to Outer Space! What gives!?! Maybe we should ask that mysterious Goomba what to do... Oh that's a relief! He knows what to do! He says we should go in that completely un-suspicious looking black hole. He seems to know what to do, so let's listen to him! Into the black hole we go!!! Weeeeeeee!!!!!!!!! Hey, now what REALLY gives!?!?!?!?!?!?! We're all neony and opposite colors of what we're supposed to be! I mean, come ON! We are probably the most gullible people ever. Go in the black hole he says, sure we said, and where do we end up? In some whacko neon place. This could only be the work of Bowser! Well, I guess now we have to just plow through enemies and bosses like nobody's business! Here comes the first boss now...
Max. HP: 210
Attacks: Charge (Attack Power goes up by 5, defense goes down to 0); Sky Dive (10 damage); Shell (8 damage)
Attack: 10 (15 when charged)
Defense: 2 (0 when charged)
I'd say that was the toughest mini-boss in Paper Mario HISTORY! Time to move on though, no time to dilly-dally. Hrm... There seems to be a roadblock with an awkward-looking Koopatrol guarding it... Let's go talk to him. He says his name is Frank, and that he's the hardest boss in the game.
Are you sure?
Max. HP: 15
Attacks: Be Afraid (Flips upside-down in his shell, making his defense drop)
Man, that was TOO EASY!!!!!!!!!! He says he'll let you pass because you beat the hardest boss in the game (laughs). But on 1 condition: He gets to be your partner for a while because, of course, your his idol.
You Got a Temporary Partner!
Name: Frank, the awkward Koopatrol
|Shell||0||3||A basic shell attack||Initial|
|Power Shell||2||3||A shell attack that hits all enemies|
|Reinforcements||4||0||Calls in 2 more Koopatrols who attack on their own|
|Charge||6||0||Increases attack power by 5|
Now to go through the rest of the Neon Zone. Hey, we haven't seen Bowser in a while, have we? Let's not worry about that FOR NOW! For now let's just worry about getting to the boss. Hey, what's that in the distance? It's a Super Star! But how could it be so easy to get? Let's get it anyway! Oh dear, it's a boss. Who would've guessed?
Max. HP: 300
Attacks: Swoop (12 damage); Bite (12 damage); Engulf (15 damage)
Well now we REALLY got the Amber Star! Now go throught that door and see what lies on the other side...
Woo, the second part of the chapter! I guess this is where you'll find that final boss... Oh no! Where's Frank!?!?!?! Oh well, he wasn't of much use to us. Hey, what's that in the distance? It's the one-and-only badge in the GAME!
You Got a New Badge!
Name: Super Badge
Badges Within: Power Plus; Defense Plus; HP Plus; FP Plus; Piercing Blow (Makes hammer more powerful); Power Smash (Same thing as Piercing Blow); Piercing Stomp (Makes jump more powerful); Power Jump (Same thing as Piercing Jump)
Time to continue our journey through the perilous Neon Zone. Hey, what's that in the distance? Omigosh, it's Frank talking to Bowser! I wonder what he's saying... He's probably telling him that Mario's going to whoop his behind! Let's ambush them...
Max. HP: 200
Attacks: Shell Shock (12 damage to both people); Fire (12 damage to both people); Stomp (12 damage)
Defense: 3Once you beat him, he runs away and cries like a little baby, but this time he DOESN'T drop a Super Star, he drops a key! He really needs to get better pockets... Anyway, let's go through the door that he left locked. But wait; how'd he get through the door without the key? Oh well, that's a useless question. Let's go through the door. Holy! That's a big dragon, and it looks like Hooktail too! What a treat!
Name: Liatkooh (Hooktail backwards)
Max. HP: 250
Attacks: Fire (10 damage); Stomp (8 damage); Bite (6 damage)
Defense: 0By the way, if you think ANY of these mini-bosses are hard, you should level up a little. If you've leveled up the amount your supposed to have by now, these bosses should be a piece of cake. Anyway, now it's time to move on from this advice and continue this onslaught of bosses. Now make your way down a couple of flights of stairs and go through a few doors and now it's the final room... How epic... Hey, who's that? It looks like Bowser, but it can't be... Oh well, let's battle him anyway.
Max. HP: 375
Attacks: Fire (17 damage); Shell Shock (12 damage to both people); Stomp (10 damage); Bite (5 damage); Headbutt (2 damage)
Oh no, his helmet fell off! Hey, it's Bowser! I wonder why he's hiding his identity? Maybe he's embarrassed about that mole that just appeared on his face, or maybe the fact that he's getting uglier each battle... I wonder, but no time for wondering. We have to get these 2 Stars, the Pearl Star and the Turquoise Star, back to the Glitz Pillar. Now let's go out the door and... We're back! But we came out of a different door that we came in... It's the last door! The last 2 doors lead to different parts of the Neon Zone, by the way. And you beat the game!
