Paper Mario is the paper thin (quite literally) counterpart of Mario who hails from the Paper Mario series, and appears as a newcomer in Super Smash Bros. Universal Struggle. While he may seem like a clone of Mario, Paper Mario is very different in abilities and moves. He uses his trademark Hammer in both his neutral special and a few of his attacks (amongst other things) and has a few of his partners help out in one way or another. Paper Mario was revealed on July 7th, 2015 with the full roster and has yet to recieve a proper reveal trailer.
