As the main character, the player controls Mario and he is playable the most throughout the game. He can use use the powers of the Time Blade to make anything within a spotlight-like feild age forward or backward to thier past or present versions.
For example, if Mario uses the Magic of the Future, any sprout nearby him will grow into a gigantic beanstalk but will revert back into a regular sprout when Mario walks away. Using the Magic of The Past and getting close enough to a sprout will show it when it wasn't even planted in it's hole, giving Mario a hole to go inside. This ability can be used to solve various other puzzles and is the game's main mechanic.
A professional Goomba fighter who travels the world wrestleing many different foes. But after being brutally defeated by his greatest rival, he was forgotten and has been trying to defeat him ever saince. He joins Mario when he saves him from a Prisimor that pinned him down and attempted to destroy him instead of calling it a match. Mario helps him pursue his dream of defeating his rival.
Due to his vast knowlege of the species he's wrestled, he has the ability to tattle enemies and thus adding their entire specises (not including subspecies) to the player's tattle log and reaveling thier Heart Points.
Kapps is a Kappa whom must be constantly keep his cap filled with water. Like all Kappas, if his cap has no water inside, he turns into a statue until it is refilled. His leader and colony agreed to cast a spell on Solaria and soon the world so it whould eternally rain and they'd never run out of water but Kapps disagreed saying there must be an alternative way. Beacuse of this the water of his cap is deprived from his own group and he was used as a statue, until Mario refills his cap and saves him. The two both agree to stop the storm and find another way.
Like past Koopa partners such as Kooper and Koops, he can retreat into his shell and be used to hit switches,and collect out of reach items. The shell can also be halted in place so Mario can move around before Kapps speeds off.

A strange flock of birds made out of some kind of aura will pass over and feathers will fall on Mario. If the action command is done correctly, Mario sprouts wings and creates a huge gale of wind that blows away any enemies with HP up to 8 and thus defeating them. The player doesn't obtain any star points however.
|Feathers slowly fall down and the player must get the white ones to land on Mario and the dark black ones must be avoided. To move the feathers the player must blow in the gamepad's mic and the direction thier blown in depends on a directional arrow that slowly rotates but gets faster. 3 white feathers makes it so the attack can blow away enemies with 2, and then another 3 and blow away 3, then four and so on, but a black feather deducts a feather, a gold feather is worth 3.|
