Welcome to my Super Paper Mario game script. I made this guide because this
game has been out for awhile now, and no game script has been created yet. I
figured I should make one, since I really enjoy writing these. =P This guide
contains the script for the entire story, from the beginning to the end. If
you're like me and enjoyed the script in the game, then you will enjoy this
guide. Let's get busy.
II. Game Script
In this section, I will list the entire script for the story of the game, from
the beginning to the end. Enjoy.
Game Intro [GNTR]
"I'll tell you the story of the lost book of prophecies."
[A book known as the Dark Prognosticus is drawn on the screen]
"This prophetic book was a mysterious tome full of stories of future events."
"Of course, many people craved this book, wishing to glimpse their futures."
"But no person, after obtaining this amazing book, ever found happiness."
"The reason? The book held frightful secrets not meant for people's eyes."
"That book came to be called the Dark Prognosticus and was sealed away."
"This...is the tale of that forgotten book's last owner. It is a tale of
[The pages flip and the screen fades out]
Voice #1: Ooh... Oooooh... What happened to me... What is this place?
Voice #2: Bleh heh heh heh heh... Oh, you're awake, Princess!
Voice #1: ...Huh?
[The princess opens her eyes and sees a caped figure, who wields a staff.
Bowser and Peach are then shown getting married at an altar]
Voice #3: BOWSER!
[The crowd is shown]
Princess Peach: Wh-What's going on here?!
[A strange girl named Nastasia appears]
Nastasia: Count! Yeah, um, 'K, so preperations are complete...
Count Bleck: Mmm... Then it shall be begun...by Count Bleck!
[A bell starts ringing]
Count Bleck: Bowser... Ferocious and fearsome, evil king of the Koopas... Do
you take Peach to be your lawfully wedded wife 'til your games be
Bowser: Bwah ha ha! Will I marry Peach? Are you kidding me? The answer's
Count Bleck: Peach... Noble princess, pure of heart... Do you take Bowser to be
your lawfully wedded husband 'til your games be over?
Princess Peach: Now, wait just a second! You will explain to me what is going
Count Bleck: Bleh heh heh heh heh... Is it not obvious? This is your wedding,
Princess Peach: But...why in the WORLD am I marrying Bowser?!
Bowser: Bwah ha ha! Hey, no gripes from THIS side of the altar, Bleck old boy!
I don't get the details, but the count here has gone to a lot of
trouble planning this! Just relax! We'll get married, we'll be in love,
it'll be awesome! Finally!
Princess Peach: No! And who picked this dress out? It's AWFUL! Take me back to
my castle immediately!
[Nastasia brainwashes her]
Nastasia: Yeah, um, being rude to the esteemed count is sort of frowned on, 'K?
So, yeah, Princess Peach, I'm gonna need you to answer the count
now... Do you, Peach, take Bowser to be your wedded husband 'til your
games be over?
Princess Peach: Unh... Nuh... No...
Nastasia: Gee... You sure are a fighter. But yeah, no one withstands my super-
hypnosis, sorry. "I do." Say it now, 'K?
[She brainwashes her even more]
Princess Peach: Oooh... Ooooh oh... ......I..... I....do......
[The altar rumbles and a black light emits from it]
[The crowd is shown, along with Luigi, who is on the ground. He gets up, then
he looks around]
Luigi: What in the world...? Eh? What am I doing here?
Luigi: Huh? Is that...Princess Peach over there??? And that guy is...HEY!
[The Chaos Heart appears, then it rises up to Bleck]
Count Bleck: BLEH HEH HEH HEH! BLECK! Yes, all precisely as written in the Dark
Prognosticus! Already it is unleashed! The Chaos Heart!
Nastasia: Oh, yeah, um, congratulations, Count...
[Luigi steps in]
Count Bleck: And just who are you? ...Asked Count Bleck.
Luigi: Oh, no! I don't give my name to scoundrels! Just watch as Luigi punishes
you for your badness! HERE I GO!
Nastasia: Yeah, I'm gonna need you to stop right this second, 'K? If you
interrupt this now...
[Luigi jumps on top of Bowser, then the Chaos Heart]
Luigi: Here's where Luigi rescues Princess Peach! Eh?
[The place rumbles violently and the screen fades out, then it fades back in,
showing the Chaos Heart. Bleck appears with the Dark Prognosticus, and
Nastasia also appears]
Nastasia: Um, yeah, so are you all right, Count?
Count Bleck: Fools... Pointless acts like these will earn you only pain...from
Count Bleck! Very well. As the Chaos Heart is secured, this ragtag
group now lacks use.
Nastasia: Um, so, yeah, Count... This means you may turn to a new page of dark
[Bleck spreads out both of his arms]
Count Bleck: Open your mouth, darkness! Consume everything and destroy all
worlds, as told in the prophecy! BLECK!
[The screen flashes, then the screen fades out. The title screen appears at
[When the game starts, Mario and Luigi's house is shown, and the inside is
shown with the brothers sitting at their dining room chair. Luigi yawns]
Luigi: ...Wow, sure is peaceful today, eh, Bro?
Luigi: Makes a guy feel lucky, having a peaceful day... Yup, reeeeeal peaceful.
It's so peaceful, it's almost a little bit boring. It makes you just
want a...KERBLOOEY! Y'know? Some kind of shocking event...
[Mario thinks, then replies]
Luigi: ...Ooh, at Princess Peach's place, maybe? That'd be cool, huh, Bro?
Maybe we should go visit Mushroom Castle! It has been a while. I'm sure
the princess would be happy to see us.
[The brothers get up and head outside, where they hear a voice]
Voice: M-M-M-M-M-M-M-MARIO! HELP!
[They walk over towards the voice, who turns out to be Toad]
Luigi: T-Toad?! What? What happened? Why are you so crazy?
Toad: It's sh-sh-sh-sh-shocking... Mushroom Castle...RAIDED! Princess Peach...
[Mario and Luigi are surprised by this]
Luigi: WHAAAAAAAAAAT?! Why, that's ridiculous! Who in the world would do such a
[Luigi gets a thought]
Luigi: Wait a second... Yeah... I think I've got it! Bro, this must be the work
of that guy! That bad guy!
[Mario thinks, then gets a thought and nods]
Luigi: I won't stand for this... We'll have to sneak into his castle and rescue
Princess Peach! Let's go, Bro!
[They both head out]
Toad: We're counting on you, Mario...Bros.!
[Bowser's castle is shown, and inside, Bowser is seen]
Bowser: BWA HA HA! Listen well, my elite minion task force!
Bowser: It's time to initiate my awesome plot to invade Mushroom Castle! Today
is the day that I make my beloved Princess Peach ALL MINE! And if that
weren't awesome enough, I'll ALSO stomp her little mustache buddies!
[Bowser's minions are shown in a crowd full of cheering]
[The minions are shown cheering]
Bowser: Bwa ha ha ha ha! "We're under attack!" You jokers are the best!
[He notices two men in the midst of the crowd]
Bowser: Hey! Who are those hair guys in the back? We SHAVE around here,
[He jumps towards the crowd and they flee, and the two men happen to be Mario
Bowser: Blargh! Mario! ...AND Luigi?! How'd you get in here?
Bowser: What? My front gate was open?!
[He stomps the ground]
Bowser: How many times have I told those idiots?! If you're the last in, LOCK
Luigi: Quiet, you big Bowser! We know you kidnapped Princess Peach! Now where
you'd put her?!
[Bowser is confused]
Bowser: Where'd I... Wait, what? We're only now about to launch our atta--
Voice: MARIO! HELP!
[Peach is shown in a block near Bowser's minions, in the middle]
Luigi: Princess Peach?!
[The block moves, and a caped figure with a hat appears]
Count Bleck: BLECK! Your princess has been taken...by Count Bleck!
Bowser: You... Wait, by WHO?!
[He is shown up close]
Count Bleck: By me...Count Bleck! The chosen executor of the Dark
Prognosticus...is Count Bleck! The fine fellow prophersied to come
to this dimension...is also Count Bleck!
Bowser: I'll tell you who doesn't even make a bit of sense... Count Bleck!
Enough! Release Princess Peach, right now! I'm on a schedule over here!
Count Bleck: Count Bleck says NEVER! This princess is integral to fulfilling
the prophecies... She will be brought to Castle Bleck and used to
destroy all worlds...by Count Bleck!
Luigi: Destroy all WORLDS?!
[Mario attempts to attack him, but to no avail, due to a protective barrier
guarding Count Bleck. Bleck then uses his magic to put Mario in a dark aura,
then he falls over]
Luigi: Big Bro!
[Bleck puts his hand over his chin]
Count Bleck: This man deserves ridicule... Weaklings cannot face Count Bleck!
Bowser: Hey, here's a thought: you calm down and free the princess...OR ELSE!
[Bowser's troops gather a bit]
Count Bleck: Bleh heh heh heh... Your princess shall NOT be returned...by Count
Bleck. In fact, Bowser, evil king of the Koopas...Count Bleck will
take you, too!
[Bowser has a scared look on his face, then Bleck raises his wand and makes it
float in the air, spreading out both of his arms]
Count Bleck: BLEH HEH HEH HEH! BLECK!
[Using his magic, Bleck creates a big dark portal that sucks everyone in the
castle into it, except for Mario, who is still unconscious]
Count Bleck: BLEH HEH HEH HEH! BLECK! Count Bleck's preperations are now in
order! All that remains is for the dimensional void to appear, as
foretold in the prophecy... Bleh heh heh heh heh... BLEH HEH HEH
[Bleck disappears, then the screen goes blank and a voice is heard]
[Mario wakes up, seeing a strange rainbow-colored butterfly in front of him]
Butterfly: Are you awake?
Butterfly: My name is Tippi... I am what is known as a Pixl... A sort of
fairy... Mario... I came to find you...
[He mistakes Tippi for an enemy]
Tippi: I am no enemy... You met Count Bleck...and he captured a princess and an
evil king... Is this not so?
Tippi: Then that means Count Bleck is even now beginning to form The Void... We
haven't much time... You must come with me... Yes, if your friends are
to be saved, you must come...
[A box is drawn around Mario, and he looks confused]
Tippi: Let us go...
[Mario and Tippi disappear]
[Mario and Tippi appear on top of a tower by a strange wizard]
Merlon: Oh ho! Well, well, well... Back so soon, Tippi? And who might this be?
Red shirt. Blue overalls... And a magnificent 'stache! Tippi, you have
truly outdone yourself...
Tippi: He matches the description of the hero in the Light Prognosticus
perfectly... And his name is Mario...
[Mario is confused]
Merlon: I welcome you, Mario! This is the town of Flipside. You have come far
from the Mushroom Kingdom of your dimension... Of course, our fair
Flipside is in no dimension at all! No! It is BETWEEN dimensions!
Merlon: My name? Merlon! I am a descendant of the Ancients who created this
town. I busy myself studying musty, ancient texts to forestall the end
of all worlds!
Merlon: Ahh... You want to know about the end of all worlds? What's happening,
you ask? So Tippi has not yet told you, I gather... Well then, Mario...
The answer hangs above you.
[A purple circle of dark energy is shown above, directly in the center]
Merlon: Do you see the gathering darkness in the sky?
[It's shown up close]
Merlon: It is a hole in the very dimensional fabric of space! Such a strange
phenomenon... Is it near or far? None know. It may appear small now,
but it will only grow. And in the end, it will swallow all existence...
All worlds, all dimensions... This void was created by our enemy, Count
Bleck, who wields the Dark Prognosticus.
[The Void is taken out of view]
Tippi: "A fair and lovely princess... A furious monster king... The union of
these two will call forth the Chaos Heart, the consumer of worlds... And
the Chaos Heart will ravage the sky, and so bring forth The Void."
Merlon: Yes... The passage Tippi just quoted is from the Light Prognosticus of
my ancestors. The book also says this: "The Void will swallow all...
Naught can stop it...unless the one protected by the dark power is
destroyed. The hero with the power of the eight Pure Hearts will rise
to this task." ...So it is written.
[He takes out a Pure Heart]
Merlon: This is one of the eight Pure Hearts. You are surely the hero spoken of
in the pages of the Light Prognosticus. You are the only one who can
defeat Count Bleck and save all worlds!
Merlon: Mario! Take this and save all worlds from destruction!
- I will!
[If "Nah." is chosen, and then you refuse again, you get a Game Over. However,
if "I will" is chosen...]
Merlon: Excellent! You truly are the hero of the book of legend! My eyes never
deceive! So... *clearing his throat* Ahem! Mario, our brave hero!
[He gives Mario the first of the eight Pure Hearts]
"You got a Pure Heart"
"This Pure Heart has been thrust into your possession!"
Merlon: Now, great hero Mario... Your first task awaits. You must take this
Pure Heart... You must place it in the Heart Pillar in this town. Tippi
will lead you there. Return to me when you are through with this task!
Tippi: This way...
[Tippi heads over to the left]
"When D-Pad Up appears, press the red direction on the D-Pad to examine things
or talk to people."
[Mario heads over to Tippi and takes an elevator down to the main area]
Tippi: This way, please... Come along...
[He follows Tippi to the right and takes another elevator up]
Tippi: The Heart Pillar is this way... Come on, please...
[Tippi goes to the left where the Heart Pillar is, and Mario follows her]
Tippi: This is the Heart Pillar... Now, get close and place the Pure Heart..
[Mario walks up to the pillar and takes out the Pure Heart, then it gets
inserted into the heart-shaped indention of the pillar. This causes a red door
to appear on Flipside's tower]
Tippi: Well done... Now, let's return to Merlon...
[They head back down the elevator and proceed towards the left. Tippi locates a
Save Block near Merlon's house]
Tippi: Perhaps you should strike this block before we head back to Merlon...
[Mario uses the block, then heads back up to the tower of Flipside]
Merlon: Ah, the two of you return!
[They go up to Merlon]
Merlon: Look! A door has appeared! This "dimensional door" was made to lead the
hero to another Pure Heart. Yes, somewhere beyond this door lies one of
the seven other Pure Hearts... ...Tippi. You must use your power to
help Mario find this Pure Heart and return here.
Tippi: Of course...
Merlon: And Mario... I have something to give you that will aid you on your
[He takes out a red pipe with red and white streaks on the top, then gives it
"You got a Return Pipe!"
Merlon: With this, you will be able to return to Flipside from anywhere in the
universe! Use it whenever you feel you must return in a hurry.
"To use your Return Pipe, just go to "Important Things" on the menu screen.
Just remember that in some areas, the signal from Flipside might not reach..."
Merlon: ...The Light Prognosticus foretells that the hero will meet a
"dimension governor". And from him, the hero will learn the dimensional
technique... I am almost certain this refers to my friend, the Flip
Wizard, Bestovius. So go now through this door, and seek out Bestovius!
Tippi: Well, let's get going...
[Mario and Tippi enter the red door]
Castle Bleck Scene 1 [BLK1]
[A dark castle is shown with Count Bleck, the Dark Prognosticus, and all of his
Count Bleck: BLEH HEH HEH HEH! BLECK! The Void has been ripped in the
Count Bleck: Yes, Count Bleck is pleased. All has gone as foretold in the Dark
Prognosticus. Now it's just a matter of time until all worlds meet
their demise! Bleck!
O'Chunks: Wow, that's just super, Count! Yeah, first you'll erase all these
naughty worlds... And then you're gonna build a perfect world without
war and all that other icky stuff!
Dimentio: Yes, yes, no one likes the icky stuff... Yesss... A perfect world...
Sounds magical... Ah ha ha. I can hardly stand the wait.
Voice: Sorry I'm late!
[Another O'Chunks appears, and he notices his carbon copy]
O'Chunks: What in blazin' bog rats...? How'd I beat meself 'ere?! What's goin'
O'Chunks (Fake): Mimimimimimimimimimimimi! Oh, O'Chunks, you big silly! Didja
oversleep or something?
[He turns into Count Bleck]
Count Bleck (Fake): I guess it's kinda hard to be on time, though, when you've
got muscles instead of brains!
[O'Chunks gets agitated]
O'Chunks: 'EY! Yeh can't fool me wit' that crazy shape-shiftin' hooliganry!
It's Mimi, innit?! Show a little respect fer the count! Yeh can't go
a'borrowin' 'is face, lass!
Count Bleck (Real): Bleh heh heh heh heh... How delightful, Mimi. Almost as
dapper...as Count Bleck!
[Mimi turns into Peach]
Princess Peach (Fake): Aw, golly, thanks, Count! With you around, it's nothing
but big smiles all the time! Hanging out with the count!
That's MY idea of a perfect world!
Dimentio: And here I thought Mimi's ideal world was a gem-filled pool with
[Mimi turns into Bowser]
Bowser (Fake): Hey! Dimentio! Have you been reading my diary? I mean... Umm...
Count Bleck: Bleh heh heh heh heh heh... Well, different strokes for different
Count Bleck: After these rotten worlds are ended, Count Bleck will make all
your dreams come true! But for that to happen...we must follow the
instructions of the Dark Prognosticus.
[Nastasia, Count Bleck's most loyal follower, speaks]
Nastasia: Yeah, about that, just an FYI? I've got an urgent memo for your
Nastasia: Apparently there's been some unapproved interdimensional activity
lately. Yeah... I'm thinking it's the hero of prophecy. We're gonna
need an action plan for this guy...
Count Bleck: A dimensional interloper! And possibly the hero?! You are sure of
it, Nastasia? Interesting, mused Count Bleck. We must put an end
to this nuisance...
O'Chunks: Count Bleck!
O'Chunks: Lemme get this right in me brain. The 'ero Nastasia's goin' on
'bout... He yer enemy? Then yeh gotta cut me loose on 'im! Yeh gotta!
I'll give 'im a nice taste o' O'Chunks!
Count Bleck: Very well, O'Chunks. I'll leave the hero-chunking to you. Do not
fail Count Bleck.
O'Chunks: Yeh can count on me, Count! I'll rain down like a fat thunderstorm! I
[He turns to Mimi and Dimentio]
O'Chunks: Mimi! Dimentio! Yeh should tag along! Yeh could witness a proper
Dimentio: Mmm... I do enjoy a good chunking... Well, then... I believe I'll
head out as well.
Count Bleck: Bleh heh heh heh heh... So, hero... You would defy Count Bleck?
Then hurry, for your world's end draws near... BLEH HEH HEH HEH!
Chapter 1-1: The Adventure Unfolds [CH11]
"Mario was called upon once again to save the world...no small task. Could he
prevent Count Bleck from pulling off his sinister plot? Would Mario reunite
with Princess Peach? A truly interdimensional adventure was about to begin..."
[The stage's background is drawn, then Mario and Tippi come out of a red door]
Tippi: I feel the Pure Heart. But it's still far from here...
[Mario turns to Tippi]
Tippi: Merlon told us to find his friend, Bestovius, to learn that dimensional
technique. We'd better go find him...
Tippi: One more thing... If you want to learn about anything, just use my
power... I know about many things...
[A Wii Remote appears onscreen]
"Simply point your Wii Remote at the screen and Tippi will focus on where you
point. Then, just press A over anything framed in red to hear more about it.
Feel free to ask Tippi about anything or anyone you want!"
[Mario makes his way through the area, stomping Goombas and the like. He
eventually comes to a house, then enters it. It appears empty. He looks
around to no avail]
Tippi: This is not an empty house... There's something in this room. I can feel
it... I can help you find hidden things. Why don't you use my power to
[He uses Tippi's powers to find a hidden door]
Tippi: There's a hidden door here... Let me make it visible for you...
[The door appears]
Tippi: It's a door... Let's go inside...
[They enter the door]
[A weird wizard-like person is shown. This is Bestovius]
Bestovius: What is this meager mustache that stands before me? And how does it
have the audacity to address my multicolored glory? ...How did these
flimsy whiskers detect my secret door...
[He notices Mario's clothes]
Bestovius: Wait right there! Red shirt...conspicuous white gloves...jaunty
cap... Hah! You are garbed in the rich cloth of the hero of
prophecy! You must be the great...
[Mario points to himself]
[Mario falls over]
Bestovius: What a costume! You look like you leaped out of the pages of the
[Mario gets up and explains]
Tippi: This is Mario! He's dressed like this because he IS the hero... Merlon
told us to find you.
Bestovius: Merlon?! Only his full-bodied beard rivals my hairy magnificence...
If Merlon thinks you are the true hero, you probably are. *quietly*
I think... Well, then. As the ancient prophecy fortells... I,
Bestovius, will bestow upon you the ancient secrets of dimensional
flipping. ...For a nominal fee of 10,000 coins!
Tippi: But that's preposterous! You can't charge to teach the hero of the
Bestovius: Why not? Even the great and splendiferous Bestovius has certain...
expenditures. Why should the hero get the world delivered to him on
a well-garnished platter? These heroes think they can get away with
shaking people down for free skills! A mere 10,000 coins should be
nothing for a hero of the universe. What do you say?
[If "No" is chosen...]
Bestovius: I see. So be it. I will settle for just taking all the coins in your
pocket. Do we have a deal?
[If "Yes" is chosen...]
Bestovius: Fantabulous! Wait a moment. You lack 10,000 coins?! I should have
expected such cheapskatery from a hero with a scrimpish mustache!
Now that I know you are determined to cheat me out of my tribute...
I will settle for just taking all the coins in your pocket.
[If "Yes" is chosen...]
Bestovius: Scintillating! Let us begin!
[If "No" is chosen...]
Bestovius: Still you refuse?! So be it. Though it makes me ill, I will waive
the nominal fee and teach you for free. Do you agree to this?
[If "No" is chosen...]
Bestovius: How dare you! I have never suffered such an assault to my splendor!
Begone! You are unfit to stand before my shining magnificence!
[If "Yes" is chosen...]
Bestovius: Scintillating! Let us begin!
[He floats over to Mario]
Bestovius: Flimmidy flammidy flooom! Diggidy daggidy dooom! Zibbidy zabbidy
[He enduces Mario with magic]
Bestovius: I, Bestovius, have granted you the ability to flip between
dimensions. Press A to slip between the very fabric of space and
flip between 2-D and 3-D! Well, what do you think? Mind blowing,
Bestovius: What is this A I speak of? I assure you that if we are being watched
from another dimension... Those beings will understand. But you lack
the mustache for full comprehension. Just remember that you can use
this ability to find hidden items and secret paths. But beware: use
your new ability too long, and you will lose HP.
[Mario and Tippi continue out of the building, and keep going through the
Lineland Road. Eventually they reach the level's end, and hit the star block
to end the chapter]
Chapter 1-2: Afoot in the Foothills [CH12]
"And so Mario came to earn the stupendous ability of flipping between
dimensions. But there was no time to celebrate: Mario still had a Pure Heart
to find. The trail ahead was overrun with savage beasts. "Follow me," Tippi
said, as she flew toward the mountain that loomed ahead. The Pure Heart was
hidden somewhere on the other side."
Tippi: I feel that the Pure Heart is beyond this mountain...but it's still far,
far away. Something tells me you'll need to put that new skill of yours
[As Mario and Tippi continue their trek through the foothills, they come to a
house in the background, using a pipe to reach it. Inside, Mario flips into
3-D to find a person on a bed]
Red: Hey! HEY! You can see me!
Red: This is unbelievable! I've been freaking out here for days, and finally
someone sees me!
Red: A couple mornings ago, I roll out of the wrong side of bed... ...and once
I get my coffee, I realize I'm stuck in some freaky parallel dimension!
I've been hollering and flailing for days, but nobody could hear me...or
even see me. Just when I was starting to think I'd be here forever, I see
Red: You just blipped in here out of thin air! I was thinking, if you can do
that, maybe I can hitch a ride back with you? Just stand next to me and
flip back to 2-D. I'll hold on!
[Mario flips back to 2-D with Red]
Red: WHUH! We did it! I'm back to normal! Listen, you really bailed me out
there. That 3-D business was freaking me out! The name's Red. Nice to meet
Red: Say, uh...any way I can repay you?
Tippi: Actually, there is one thing... There's a huge chasm outside that we
need to cross.
Red: So you want to cross the chasm, huh? Well, you found yourself the right
guy! But hey, I've got to warn you. You know this place is called Impasse
Pass, right? I'm only allowed to let a choice few cross the bridge. It's
in my job description. I mean, that's why they pay me to stand here. You
sure you want to pass?
Red: Yeah... Well, you did save me from being trapped in a parallel dimension
and all... OK! I'm going to ask you a question. Get the right answer, and
I'll let you pass. Sound good? Here we go. What's the most manly color in
the entire universe? Red or green?
[If "Green!" is chosen...]
Red: ...GREEN?! You're out of your mind! There's no way I can let a crazy like
[He then kicks Mario out of the house. If "Both!" is chosen...]
Red: What?! ...BOTH?! We can't have any wishy-washy types like you hanging
[He then kicks Mario out of the house. If "Red!" is chosen...]
Red: Yes, you are SO right! I knew it! You and me, we see eye to eye on
fashion. I'll throw the bridge down. Hang on a sec.
[He jumps over his bed and flips a switch on his wall, which causes a bridge to
Red: All right, you should be good to go. You take 'er easy!
[Mario and Tippi head out of the house and they cross the bridge that Red made
appear. They come to Yold Town, a small town with an item shop and some other
houses. Eventually they come to another house in the background, in which they
find a man clothed in green inside]
Green: Heya, Mr. Red Shirt. You want me to flip the bridge down for you? Can't
do that. Nope. You need special permission from high up. It's the law.
No way am I doing hard time. You need the OK from Old Man Watchitt. Good
luck with that. That Yold-timer is more crab than man.
[Mario exits the house and goes back to the foreground, and then finds Watchitt
inside of a house]
Watchitt: Whoozit?! I'm the elder around here, so watch it! What do you want?
Get off my rug!
Tippi: Actually, we were hoping to pass through town.
Watchitt: Nothing but desert past here. There's treasure, but you'll get grit
in your grunders. That's what here is for. Yold Town. Keeps the
treasure safe from YOU. Watch it! Can't let you pass. See this little
guy in my pocket? He's got something to tell you. Know what he says?
WATCH IT! So give it up.
Watchitt: Whuzzat?! Whizzit?! You're the hero?! Dumplings! If you were, you'd
have a Pixl that's shaped like a hand. I might believe you're the
hero if you have one, but you don't. See this beard here? It's got
something to tell you. Know what it says? WATCH IT!
[Mario enters another house and finds a pipe in 3-D. He enters it, and soon
enough he comes to a room where the door behind him locks]
Tippi: Oh, no... The door... Now we're locked inside...
[Mario examines the big chest in front of him]
Chest: Sweet freedom!
[The chest opens, revealing a hand-shaped object]
Pixl: Wait a moment... If I have been set free, the legendary hero must have
done it! I express concern when the Ancients stuffed me in that chest
1,500 years ago... But it seems my fears were quite unfounded. The hero
has finally arrived!
Tippi: Are you...a Pixl?
Pixl: Why...YES! I am indeed a Pixl! My name is...Thoreau! You are a Pixl as
well? But you don't look familiar... Are you a newer model?
Tippi: I... Well, I... Ummm...
Thoreau: No matter! Details do bore me! What is important is the fact that I
have waited AGES to lend my skill to the hero. And, glorious day, here
you are! Do take me with you.... You simply must! You will, then?
[The Pixl joins Mario]
"The throwing Pixl, Thoreau, has joined you! Use him to pick up and throw
objects and enemies! You can even throw while you jump."
Thoreau: With me at your side, one may grasp objects with great vigor! Simply
press 1 to use my throwing ability!
Thoreau: What's this 1, you say? You need not worry. The great being that
watches us will know what it is. Just remember that I can grasp
objects and enemies and hurl them with gusto. Grab something with 1
and press 1 again to throw it. Why not take a moment to get
acquainted with my useful talent? You will need to use my ability to
get out of this room. Read, steady, GO!
[Mario uses Thoreau to pick up a nearby block, then he uses it to hit the blue
switch in the room, unlocking the door]
Thoreau: Glorious day! Consider me fully at your disposal. Now, to adventure
[They go back to Old Man Watchitt's house]
Watchitt: If you had that Pixl, I might believe you're the hero. Whuzzit?! You
do? 'Course you do! You're the hero! Knew it all along, watch it.
I'll give that Green feller a call. He'll let you across that bridge.
[He takes out his cellphone and calls Green]
Watchitt: Hello? Green? It's me, Watchitt. I said Watchitt... WATCH IT! WATCH
IT! I said Watchitt, not botch it! This hero feller wants to get
across the bridge. Yes, I told him about the grit. Ah... Yes. Let's
just keep that between us. Just let the mustache guy through.
[He hangs up]
Watchitt: Just get off my rug and go talk to Green at the edge of town...WATCH
Watchitt: Well, looks like I can finally retire, 'cause my job is done! When
you're in that desert, keep a watchful eye out for some ruins. The
treasure is there. Nasty beasts too. SO WATCH IT!
[Mario goes back to Green's house]
Green: I got a call from Old Man Watchitt. So you're that hero guy then, huh?
Right on! I'll put the bridge across for you straightaway!
[He flips a switch by his bed, making a bridge appear]
Green: There you go!
Green: Mind if I ask you a question? Red or green. What's better?
[The outcome is the same either way. Mario crosses the bridge and hits the star
block to end the chapter]
Chapter 1-3: The Sands of Yold [CH13]
"With a bold quiver of his magnificent mustache, Mario let loose a heart
sneeze. A single grain of sand had flown along the warm wind and tickled the
hero's nose. It wasn't long before Mario and Tippi found the source of the
sand: the Yold Desert. Along the endless, sunbaked expanse, Mario and Tippi
continued their search..."
Tippi: Didn't Old Man Watchitt say something about there being some ruins
Tippi: The Pure Heart can't be far now... We'd better not waste any time...
[They go through the Yold Desert, defeating lots of dangerous enemies. They
eventually come to a Save Block, then they go through a door and hear the
voice of someone]
Voice: GRAH-GOOGLY! So yer the lad stickin' his 'stachy in me boss's
[Mario looks around and doesn't find anyone, then O'Chunks lands onto the
ground and makes the door in front of him disappear]
O'Chunks: Yeh shouldn't 'ave crossed the count! Now I'm gonna 'ave teh get
chunky on yeh!
Tippi: You... You're one of Count Bleck's thugs, aren't you?!
O'Chunks: O'Chunks is me name! An' I'm no common thug, lass. I thug for the
count o' counts, Count Bleck hisself! One word from me Blecky-boy,
an' I come teh make yeh feel some hammage!
O'Chunks: Hammage? Ehhh... Make that "damage!"
[O'Chunks thinks for a moment, then gets annoyed]
O'Chunks: Whatever, then! Not that it matters a pinch o' stew in a sandstorm.
Yer a goner!
Tippi: Do you even know what Count Bleck is trying to do...?
O'Chunks: DEH! Me boy's usin' powers an' whatnot teh bring back some order teh
this 'ere world! An enemy o' Bleck an enemy o' mine! They all get
Tippi: This O'Chunks is a lot scarier than the other enemies we've faced so
far... Maybe you should use my power to investigate him when we start
O'Chunks: Enough is enough already! It's time teh thunder down from on high 'an
deliver a beatin' o' the ages. CHUNK ON IT!
[Mario battles O'Chunks. Once he's defeated...]
O'Chunks: I'M CHUNKED!
O'Chunks: Me chunks...yeh failed me! I got pummeled an yeh barely sweat yer
brow. 'Ey... What kind o' strange li'l man are yeh?
Tippi: This "strange li'l man" is none other than...the legendary hero, Mario!
O'Chunks: Maria, 'ey? 'Tis an odd name, yeh, but yeh can bet yer bebby I'll
[Mario shakes his head]
Tippi: His name's not "Maria"... It's "MARIO"!
[O'Chunks gets up and stomps the ground]
O'Chunks: Yeh remember this, Maria! If yeh didn't look like such a wee toddler,
I wouldn't 'ave taken it so easy on yeh! But 'ey, I have teh give it
up fer yer effort, so let's call it a tie. Yeh better get some chunks
o' yer own for next time, though, 'ey! And while yer at it, why don't
yeh wax that bonny 'stache o' yours, Maria!
O'Chunks: 'Til we meet again, 'ey! CHUNKS AWAY!
[O'Chunks leaves and a door appears]
Tippi: Did you understand a word of what that goon was saying...?
[Mario and Tippi keep going through the desert, eventually solving a puzzle.
This reveals a star block, which Mario hits to end the chapter]
Chapter 1-4: Monster of the Ruins [CH14]
"Somehow, Mario had found the strength to cross the desert's sweltering dunes.
Ahead was a sprawling complex of ruins rising out of the sand. Thankful for
the shade, Mario and Tippi ventured deeper inside. They were the very ruins
Old Man Watchitt had warned them about. What dangers lurked in the shady
Tippi: Mario, I can feel it calling... The Pure Heart is nearby... But, wait...
I sense something else emanating from the sand dunes. Be careful now,
Mario... Something else is waiting for us ahead...
[Mario and Tippi explore the ruins together. Eventually they find a switch
which is unreachable. Mario uses Thoreau to throw an enemy against the
switch, triggering something]
Tippi: Something happened outside the room...
[They continue to make their trek through the ruins, and eventually they take a
pipe that leads them outside. Mario eventually hears a voice]
[Mario notices a huge dragon that appears]
Fracktail: INTRUSION DETECTED. LEAVE IMMEDIATELY OR BE PURGED.
[He examines Mario more closely]
Fracktail: WAIT. SCAN INITIALIZED. RED CAP DETECTED. BLUE OVERALLS DETECTED.

DEFEND THE PURE HEART FROM LAWLESS INTRUDERS. YOU ARE LATE. I HAVE
WAITED THOUSANDS OF YEARS FOR YOUR ARRIVAL. YOU MAY PASS. THE PURE
HEART IS JUST AHEAD.
Voice: Ah ha ha. It won't be that easy, oh no...
Fracktail: WHO SPEAKS?
Dimentio: So very nice to meet you...and your mustache! I am Count Bleck's
master of dimensions, the pleaser of crowds... I am...Dimentio!
Remember the name well...
Tippi: I know you. You're that...
Dimentio: It would be so very DULL if your journey ended so easily... Instead,
it ends with...magic!
[He uses his magic on Fracktail]
Dimentio: Yes, much better... Now you and this robotic guardian can spend some
quality time... Yes, quality snack time! When he snacks...on you! For
you...ARE the snack! Ciao!
Tippi: What did he just...
Fracktail: BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP. I AM ERROR. PRESS ANY KEY TO RESTART.
Fracktail: ...SYSTEM NOT FOUND. INSERT INSTALL DISC. DISC NOT FOUND. PLEASE

Fracktail: BEEEBLEBLIP! C:/ run query identification
C:/ run insult generator
C:/ results: go away yeti-lip!
CTRL ALT DEL!
[He sinks into the sand, then rises back up. Mario then fights Fracktail. When
he goes out of view, Tippi speaks]
Tippi: Looks like Fracktail is charging straight at us... Better watch out...
[After a rather long battle, Fracktail gets defeated]
Fracktail: SYSTEM CRASH!
Fracktail: AGH-G-G-G-G-G-G-G-G-G. I HAVE MALFUNCTIONED. WHAT HAVE I DONE...
HERO... HERO... THE ERROR IS MINE. I AM SORRY... SHAME CIRCUIT...
SMOLDERING. PLEASE... YOU MUST... SAVE... OUR... WORLD...
[Fracktail's body blows up, and his bones fall down. Then, a door appears,
which Mario enters. He's in a strange dark hallway, and as he goes down the
hallway, he hears a voice]
Voice: Welcome, hero. My name is Merlumina.
[Mario looks around, then a wizard's spirit appears]
Merlumina: I am a dormant soul... I have waited long to give you the Pure
Heart. Yes, I have been waiting for 1,500 years.
[The spirit floats down]
Merlumina: Your presence here must mean that all worlds have begun to
Tippi: Yes, they have, in fact... That's why we're here...
Merlumina: Before I give you the Pure Heart, you and I must speak. Listen well,
Merlumina: Long, long ago...my people built a civilization hailed as a beacon
of culture. Sadly, despite our power, there was one thing we were
powerless to stop: The Dark Prognosticus.
Merlumina: Nobody knows who authored the dark book. It foretold the events of
the future. On the last page, it was written that a chaotic power
would devour the world.
Merlumina: We knew it had to be stopped. Our greatest minds devised a grand
plan to stop the tragedy before it happened. We needed something
with the pure essence of love to confront this chaos. Researchers
set to work...and they created the Purity Heart. We divided the
Puirty Heart into eight pieces and hid them in different dimensions.
We hid them for their own protection, waiting for the day the hero
would arrive. Everything was going as planned...or so it seemed. But
the wheels of destiny began to spin wildly out of control. It began
with a very small incident... At that time, I was young and quite
beautiful... It started the day I met two very fetching young men.
And, you see, my life set sail toward a maelstrom of love.
You see, I asked one out, but... However... It was...well, you
know... Basically...it... And then, I said... And he said... And
[Mario falls asleep. Later that day...]
And THAT is why we hope the Purity Heart will have the power to
defeat chaos. To save all worlds, we must find the eight Pure Hearts
that form the Purity Heart.
Merlumina: And that is all I have to say on the matter. Were you listening
[Mario wakes up, then nods]
Merlumina: Excellent... I did tell the short version, so I wasn't sure if you
would fully understand. It is up to you to find the Pure Hearts, for
they are our last and only hope. Go forth, hero, and save the
worlds... We are all depending on you!
[Merlumina gives Mario the Pure Heart]
"You got a Pure Heart"
"Before disappearing, Merlumina had entrusted Mario to save every world. She
had waited 1,500 years to deliver the message to the legendary hero. With the
second Pure Heart in ahnd, Mario was in great spirits. But six Pure Hearts
still remained to be found, and the journey had just begun. With a flutter,
Tippi said, "I think we'd better return to Flipside..." The weight of every
world's fate once again rested on Mario's shoulders..."
Castle Bleck Scene 2 [BLK2]
[The scene starts with O'Chunks standing by Count Bleck, kneeling down]
Nastasia: Yeah, so... I guess the hero went ahead and stomped you and sent you
O'Chunks: Yeh gotta forgive me, Count! I've failed yeh! I've never felt less
chunky in me life!
Count Bleck: Bleh heh heh heh heh heh... So our hero is real... Yes... A force
to be reckoned with...
[He turns to Nastasia]
Count Bleck: Nastasia, the prophecy. Consult it and learn where the hero will
go next... We will lay a devious trap for him and bring him to his
very KNEES! BLECK!
Nastasia: Yeah, um, I already sent Mimi to a site picked for that purpose...
Count Bleck: This pleases Count Bleck. Excellent work, Nastasia. I have granted
Mimi powers potent enough to ensure that she will obliterate this
hero. Yes, he will be helpless against her.
[He spreads out his arms]
Count Bleck: I depart! Alert Count Bleck when this "hero" is no more! BLEH HEH
HEH HEH! BLECK!
[Bleck and the Dark Prognosticus disappears]
Nastasia: Yeah, I'll fire off a memo on tht...but for now, we have another item
on the agenda... O'Chunks, you got a sec?
Nastasia: Yeah, so some minions in the Bowser orginization are still resisting
assimilation? So I'm heading out to squash the resistance...and while
I'm gone I want you to stay here. Yeah... You just sit tight and
think about your recent job performance, 'K?
[O'Chunks looks annoyed, then Nastasia leaves]
O'Chunks: Aw... I... Gah, this really tweaks me chin hairs!
Peach's Event [PCHE]
[Meanwhile, somewhere in the castle, Princess Peach is shown lying on the
ground unconscious. She wakes up]
Princess Peach: Nnnn... Hmm?
[She gets up and looks around]
Princess Peach: What? How did I end up napping here? Wait... Didn't that nasty
Count Bleck try to make me marry...BOWSER?! And then Luigi,
[She notices Luigi and Bowser aren't here]
Princess Peach: LUIIIIIIGI? BOOOOOWSER? ANYBODY THERE?
[She looks around]
Voice: Uh...no. You're the only one of the wedding party left standing, it
[She notices a Hammer Bro and a Koopa Troopa]
Hammer Bro: So you finally woke up, huh, Princess?
Princess Peach: Oh, you guys! Are you all right?
Koopa Troopa: Yeah, but who knows what happened. That was one CRAZY wedding! We
can't even find His Groomness! You remember... King Bowser? Oh...
And that guy with the mustache... I think he had a green tux on
or something? Yeah, erm...Luigi, that's the guy. We dunno where
he ended up either.
Hammer Bro: Thing is, most of us minions got all brainwashed by that Bleck
guy's assistant. Yeah, everybody's half-nuts! It's not safe here!
We've gotta clear this area, NOW!
[He talks to the Koopa Troopa]
Hammer Bro: Private Koopa here will escort you, OK? You guys make a break for
Princess Peach: But what about you?
Hammer Bro: What am I gonna do? I'll TELL you what I'm gonna do! I'm gonna go
help my men! King Bowser would burn me to a crisp if I left 'em!
Leave no Koopa behind! Good luck out there, Princess! HAIL BOWSER!
[The Hammer Bro leaves]
Princess Peach: Farewell...
Private Koopa: OK, lady, we've gotta EVAC this zone! Let's roll!
[Peach follows the Koopa Troopa through a door to another room]
Voice: You. Give up. There is no hope for escape.
[Peach looks down]
Koopa Troopa #1: All hail the glorious count! Do not resist... Submit to his
rule. You will love it.
Hammer Bro: What's this insubordiantion?! Johnson! I am your CAPTAIN! Drop and
give me twenty!
Voice: Yeah, you know what? I'm gonna have to tell you that your orders mean
[Nastasia walks in]
Nastasia: See, they've already sworn eternal allegiance to Count Bleck, 'K? And
now you need to, so I'll just go ahead and pencil you in for a 10
[He gets his hammer ready]
Hammer Bro: You just messed with the wrong Koopa! I serve Bowser! You tell this
[Nastasia brainwashes him]
Hammer Bro: HYUUUUUURK!
Hammer Bro: HAIL BLECK!
Nastasia: Hm-mm-mm... Yeah, there, isn't that better? So listen, there are
still a few problem minions that haven't sworn allegiance... You, be
a lamb and round them up for me... 'K? Thanks.
Hammer Bro: YES, MA'AM!
[The troops walk off, and Nastasia does so as well]
Private Koopa: Oh, man, this is going downhill fast! Did you SEE that?! They
even broke the captain!
Private Koopa: Look, lady, if they find us, it is GAME OVER! We've gotta clear
this area, STAT!
[Peach nods. She continues through a door on the left, then goes down the hall
and enters another door. This leads to an outside area, and a dead end]
Private Koopa: No... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Dead end!
[Peach walks up a bit]
Princess Peach: Well, staying here won't do us any good... Let's turn around
and keep looking.
Voice: Oh, turn back? Yeah...no. Your friend there had it right. This is your
[Nastasia and some brainwashed troops are shwon]
Princess Peach: Wh-Who ARE you, anyway?!
[The Private Koopa walks up to them]
Private Koopa: Find cover, lady! I'm trained to handle scum like this!
[Nastasia brainwashes him]
Private Koopa: BYOOOOORT!
[He gets sunglasses on]
Private Koopa: ALL HAIL COUNT BLECK!
Nastasia: Wow, Princess, you sure are lucky. I thought the wedding explosion
finished you... Yeah, but this is the end of the road...and your luck
runs out...right here.
[She walks up]
Nastasia: It's time you came on over and got with the program... Come and serve
Princess Peach: Never!
Nastasia: Yeah, that's great and all, but my hypno-powers kinda say otherwise.
Just sit tight a sec, 'K? 'Cause I've just got to brainwash you real
[As Nastasia goes to brainwash her, a box surrounds Peach and she vanishes]
Nastasia: What?! That wasn't on my schedule! Where'd she go?
Nastasia: Well, that's really not a deal breaker... Our prophecy-fulfillment
plan is running smoothly. We have no need for her. Yeah, and it
doesn't matter where she runs, since all worlds are about to fall...
[The screen fades out]
"I remember that day well... The room was warm. The whole place was at peace."
"You're awake at last?"
"Where...am I? Is this...a human's home?"
"Bleccch! Don't wiggle like that. I found you at the cliff base. You took quite
"You're a human, correct? I don't...repulse you? I am of the Tribe of
"Why would that matter? Anyone with a heart would not ignore an injured soul!"
"That was the day our paths crossed... That day... That was the day our tragedy
was set in motion."
Before Chapter Two [BFC2]
[Mario and Tippi come out of the red door]
"If you get a Pure Heart, you can choose to visit specific sections in each
Tippi: First, to Merlon's place...
[Mario nods. He heads down the elevator]
Voice: You return so soon?
[Merlon is shown standing by his house]
Merlon: I can see from your faces that it went well, indeed... Let's head back
to my house so you can tell the details. Please, step right in.
[He enters his house, and Mario and Tippi follow him]
Merlon: So, how was it, dear friends? Did you find a Pure Heart?
[Mario nods, then takes out the Pure Heart]
Merlon: Oh ho, such pure brilliance... This is a true piece of the one true
[He puts the heart back up]
Tippi: Yes, we met Merlumina... She gave it to us...
Merlon: Wh-What?! Lady Merlumina?! You were well met. She is an ancestor of
mine. She was the one who wrote the Light Prognosticus to counteract
the dark one... Merlumina and those who followed her built this town.
They are why we are here.
Voice: M-M-M-MASTER MERLON! B-B-B-BAD NEWS!
[A villager enters]
Merlon: What is it?! Get ahold of yourself, lad...
Um, y'see... A girl fell outta the sky!
Merlon: What? A girl fell out of the sky? What in the worlds?
Villager: I dunno! Just, please! Get on the elevator and come up there to see
Merlon: So it shall be! And you, Mario, come along. We may need your presence
[The villager and Merlon exit the house to go see the girl. Mario follows them
up an elevator]
Villager: Um, yeah, so I was just looking up at the tower, and she fell outta
[The girl happens to be Princess Peach, who is unconscious]
Merlon: Hmmm... She does not look at all familiar to me... Who could this be?
[Mario walks up to them, and he notices Peach]
Tippi: What's the matter?
Merlon: Princess Peach?! So this is the princess that Count Bleck kidnapped?
Merlon: Well, the poor girl seems to have had a rough time, of that we can be
sure. She doesn't appear to be conscious... And she is shivering
uncontrollably... What could the problem be?
[After a few seconds...]
Merlon: Oh ho! I know!
Merlon: Mario. You must go to the chef named Saffron on the first floor of
[Mario is confused]
Merlon: I am sure she knows a warming and revitalizing recipe for this poor
girl... Once she revives, we will be able to ask Princess Peach
exactly what happened. Now, off with you! Find Saffron the chef on the
[Mario nods. He goes to the first floor and enters the kitchen, then speaks
Saffron: Welcome to Sweet Smiles! Ooh, sugar, our dishes will turn that little
frown right upside down!
Saffron: What? A friend of yours is out cold? Oh, mercy!
Saffron: Well, listen here, sugar... She sounds like she needs some Spicy Soup!
All I need is a Fire Burst to make a pot of soup that'll warm her up
in a jiffy! Some stores sell Fire Bursts, so just check the shelves
wherever you like to shop. You bring me one, sugar, and I'll make you
some tasty Spicy Soup!
[Mario goes to the item shop to buy a Fire Burst, then he takes it to Saffron]
Saffron: Ooh, now THERE'S the Fire Burst I need! Now let's just get started on
making that Spicy Soup! Hand me that Fire Burst...
[He gives her the Fire Burst]
Saffron: So, sugar, you want me to create a dish for you with a Fire Burst?
[When "Yes" is chosen, she takes the item]
Saffron: One Spicy Soup, coming right up, sugar!
[She then gets to cooking the soup]
Saffron: Sorry about the wait, sugar...but it turned out just right!
[She gives Mario the Spicy Soup]
Saffron: This ought to wake that sleeping beauty of yours, sugar! Get it to her
just as quick as you can!
[Mario goes back to the unconscious Princess Peach, then gives her the soup]
Princess Peach: Ugggghhh...
Merlon: Oh ho... It seems to have worked.
[She wakes up and gets up, then yawns]
Princess Peach: Mmmm... I feel like I just ate the most delicious thing... I
haven't had a dream about such tasty food in ages...
[Mario responds, then Peach becomes aware and notices Mario]
Princess Peach: Oh! Mario?! You're OK?!
[She looks around]
Princess Peach: But where exactly are we?
Tippi: This is Flipside...
[She looks around some more]
Princess Peach: Umm...OK. And who are you?
Merlon: My dear, I am called Merlon. And that is what is known as a Pixl. Her
name is Tippi. Come, let us adjourn to my house. I would be grateful if
you would tell us more there.
[Mario nods. Later, inside Merlon's house...]
Princess Peach: ...And then before I knew it, I awoke and saw Mario, you, and
Merlon: Well, my dear... That is most assuredly a tale of woe and troubles.
Princess Peach: Oh, Mario... What do you suppose happened to Luigi and Bowser?
Princess Peach: Mm, I suppose you're right... There's just no way to know. I
just hope they're safe...
Tippi: Merlon... What should we do next?
Merlon: "And one Pure Heart shall lead the way to the next..." So it is
written. There are still more Heart Pillars to be found in Flipside,
young ones. When you find the next Heart Pillar, you must set a Pure
Heart in it. And when you do so, a door to the world containing the
next Pure Heart will appear.
[Mario and Peach nod]
Merlon: And...my intuition tells me the next door may lead you to the
Merlon: Like Bestovius and I, Merlee is one of the Ancients... We are like
long-lost cousins. Yes... I have heard that Merlee has guarded an
ancient and secret treasure. If my instincts are correct, it may be the
next Pure Heart we seek. I must tell you, the Light Prognosticus also
speaks of her magical powers...
Princess Peach: So... We just need to find this Merlee person, is that it?
Merlon: Oh ho, are you going as well? You should not tax yourself. You've only
just recovered...and...it may be dangerous.
Princess Peach: Well, I can't just sit here and let everyone else go off to
save the worlds, now, can I? After all, The Void that is
spreading in the sky is my fault. Mine and Bowser's...
[She turns to Mario, and he shakes his head. She turns back to Merlon]
Princess Peach: So I'm going, and that's final! I've made my decision.
"Peach has joined your party! Now you can control not just Mario, but Princess
Peach, as well!"
Tippi: I guess we need to find that next Heart Pillar...
Merlon: Hmmmmm... This princess is headstrong, to be sure. How very refreshing.
[He walks up to Peach]
Merlon: I insist you take this.
[He gives her an Old Key]
Merlon: There are secrets in this town that even I do not know... This may be
one of the keys to unconvering them. Quite literally, in fact. Please,
use this key wherever it fits here in town. My intuition tells me you
should be able to use it very near my house...
[He walks back]
Merlon: I will continue to read the Light Prognosticus and look for any clues
that may help. I am sure that musty old tome still has much to teach
us. Yes, very much indeed. Now, Mario, Princess Peach... Do all you can
to stop the count's evil plans!
Princess Peach: Let's go, Mario! Come on, Tippi!
[Mario nods, then they exit Merlon's house]
"When playing as Princess Peach, you can use her umbrella in a few ways. Press
and hold 2 while jumping to float slowly down. In addition, press the D-Pad
down to use your umbrella to guard against enemy attacks. When you want to
change your character, choose him or her on the menu screen."
[Mario looks for a place to use the Old Key, and finds a gate to use it on in
the 3D dimension. He eventually finds his way around to a Heart Pillar, then
inserts the Pure Heart into it. This reveals an orange door on the tower of
Flipside, then Mario and his group enters it]
Chapter 2-1: Bogging to Merlee's [CH21]
"With Princess Peach at his side, Mario set out once again, bound for
adventure. This time, our heroes were tasked with finding the mysterious
charmer, Merlee. If Merlon was right, then Merlee was the key to finding the
next Pure Heart. Never one to flinch from danger, Mario set out to find
Merlee's mysterious mansion. But little did he know, the evil works of
dastardly Count Bleck awaited at every turn..."
[The stage gets drawn out, then Mario and the others emerge from the door]
Tippi: The Pure Heart is somewhere up ahead... Yes, it must be... But it could
be a ways...
Tippi: Let's go...
[Mario nods. They explore the gloomy valley, and eventually Mario enters a
pipe. This leads to what appears to be an empty room]
Tippi: This room... There's something about this room...
[He uses Tippi's abilities to find a hidden blue switch, which he hits even
though it's invisible. This makes a pipe appear, which he takes down into
another room. He defeats an enemy in that room, then a big chest appears. He
examins the chest, and it opens. Mario is confused because nothing happens]
[A Pixl shaped like a bomb appears]
Pixl: Good vibes! Them vibes set off my blow-stuff-up sensors! You like
explodin'? Sss-POW! I ain't sensed real good blow-stuff-up vibes in...
1,500 years! Sss-POOOM! I gotta check those vibes out a little more
Pixl: Check it out: just answer a couple questions real quick. Sss-BLAAAAM!
[Mario points to himself]
Pixl: OK, sss-BOOOOM? Here we go, sss-BWAMMO!
Pixl: You stay up wonderin' if anyone ever gives presents TO Santa Claus.
[The outcome will be the same for all of the questions, regardless of the
answer you choose]
Pixl: For some reason, you clean your room before a test.
Pixl: When someone says, "Let's just be friends," you think, "Yeah, whatever."
- And how!
- No doubt!
Pixl: You don't really understand why I'm askin' you all these weird questions.
- You got it!
- Truer than true!
Pixl: You think shoppin' online is a wonderful and magical experience.
- All my life!
- Right on!
Pixl: You once put on a shirt inside out but didn't bother reversin' it before
- Yeah, I remember that.
- All the time!
Pixl: You wanna be sleepin' when you're awake, but when you're tired, you wanna
Pixl: You're gettin' real tired of these questions.
- You said it, not me.
Pixl: Got it, got it, GOT IT! SSSS-BOOOOOOOOOOOOM! You got some tasty vibes!
Ssss-BLAM! My mind's made up now! Ssss-BLAPPOW! You guys...are worthy of
[The Pixl, Boomer, joins Mario]
"The explosive Pixl named Boomer became your friend! Use Boomer's power to blow
up foes and destroy blocks! When you want to switch Pixls, just go to the
Pixls menu and pick another one."
Boomer: Each second explodes into the next! Ssss-BAMMO! Bombs away!
[Using Boomer's help, Mario and the others go through more areas of the valley,
eventually hitting a switch. This causes a rumble]
Tippi: That was awfully rumbly... Something must have happened outside...
[Soon after, Mario comes to the star block and ends the chapter by hitting it]
Chapter 2-2: Tricks, Treats, Traps [CH22]
"On the far side of a beast-ridden swamp, Mario and Co. found an imposing
residence. "This must be Merlee's Mansion!" squealed Princess Peach with glee.
If our friends could only find the Pure Heart quickly, their quest here would
end. But when has fate ever set Mario on such a simple path? Brimming with
anticipation, our plucky heroes plunged into Merlee's Mansion..."
[Mario and the others enter the mansion, and in the second room they find a
Lady: Well, hi there! Big welcome! Welcome to Merlee's Mansion!
Lady: I'm Lady Merlee's handmaid. My name's Mimi! But you can call me Mimikins
if you want! You're here to see Lady Merlee, aren't you?
Mimi: How super for you! Well, Lady Merlee is on the second floor, in the
farthest room. Just head on up there whenever you're ready! Oh, golly,
but listen... DON'T YOU DARE GO INTO ANY OTHER ROOMS BY ACCIDENT, OR
ELSE! Enjoy your visit, OK?
[Mario goes into the room Mimi told him to go into, but all it ultimately led
him to was a trap, where a ceiling fell down with spikes on it. After making
it through this room, he returns to Mimi]
Mimi: Hm? Lady Merlee wasn't in the room I directed you to?
Mimi: Oh, jeepers... Mimikins, you deserve a good spanking! Why must you be so
silly?! Lady Merlee must be in the CLOSEST room on the first floor! Yes,
of COURSE! Please head in and go alllll the way to the back!
[He heads into that room, only to find another trap. He returns to Mimi]
Mimi: You can't find Lady Merlee? Gee whiz, that's a real head-scratcher, huh?
I KNOW Lady Merlee is somewhere in the mansion. Look wherever you can!
[Mario unlocks a door with a chain attached to the lock, which ties up a
monster. The monster breaks loose]
[It heads towards Mimi]
[She runs away]
Tippi: I wonder why that savage thing went straight for her and paid us no
mind... I'd like to think we look rather tasty... What do you suppose it
Tippi: This mansion is quite odd... I feel certain it holds many secrets...
[Mario hits the star block he comes to, ending this chapter]
Chapter 2-3: Breaking the Bank [CH23]
"Mario and his friends kept up their search, delving ever deeper into the
mansion. Wherever they looked, though, they found no sign of Merlee. Where was
this mysterious woman? "Ah, maybe...this way..." So said Tippi, trying to
sense the Pure Heart's location... With dread dangling like a broken
chandelier, our heroes hurried through corridors..."
[As Mario heads forward, he finds a coin block with a vase perched on top of
it. He jumps and gets a coin out of the block, breaking the vase in the
process. Mimi then screams]
[She runs up to Mario]
Mimi: You broke it! You broke my most favoritest vase!
Mimi: DOOFUSES! I loved that vase more than ANYTHING! And you BROKE it!
Mimi: Oh, you'll pay for that! Yes, you will... I'll have you know that that
vase cost 1,000,000 Rubees...
Mimi: So hand over that money! Now! Or you're DONE FOR!
[Mario shakes his head in fear]
Tippi: Rubees? Oh, I don't believe Mario carries any of that particular
currency... I don't suppose those are anything like coins, are they?
Mimi: Coins?! No one uses COINS anymore, you peasants! I SPIT on your coins!
...So what are you saying? Are you telling me you don't have any Rubees
Mimi: Well, guess what? You're just gonna have to work it off, then! Until you
work off your debt, you naughty little things, I OWN YOU! ENJOY LABOR!
[She goes to walk off]
Mimi: Yes, so, you can earn Rubees in the generator room on the top floor. Once
you earn 1,000,000 Rubees, you come pay it off in the room at the back.
You can also check the balance of your debt there. So! Get to work,
[Mimi runs off]
"Mario is now saddled with a 1,000,000-Rubee debt! WHOA!"
[Mario heads upstairs and enters the first door, where he finds some prisoners
hitting some blocks, and a warden]
Warden #1: JUMP, LITTLE FLEAS!
[The warden is shown]
Warden #1: Work those skinny little flea legs! Unh! Make it burn! Jump like you
mean it! Boss Mimi hates the dark like she hates brussels sprouts!
So WORK IT! MOOOORE POWER!
[Mario goes and speaks with the warden]
Warden #1: Yeah, this is the generator room. Hit blocks, make energy, earn
Rubees! Unh! Rubees make the world go up, down, 'round and 'round!
You wanna work here too?
- Sure thing!
- No way!
[If "No way!" is chosen...]
Warden #1: BOOOOOOOOOOOOO! You wanna live a slacker life, be my guest! Slacker.
But you'll never get out of here unless you start working! Unh!
[If "Sure thing!" is chosen...]
Warden #1: Unh! LOVE the energy, kid! Just find an unused block and jump like
you mean it! Another day, another Rubee! Unh! Rubees are life! Unh!
Jump! Rubee! Jump! Rubee! When you're done jumping, come talk to me.
I'll tell you how many Rubees you earned. Oh! And watch out for our
"motivational sparks" that travel along the floor!
[Mario hits the one block that is free over and over, and when he gets very
little Rubees, he talks to the warden]
Warden #1: You call that a day's work?! Wow. Worst peon of all time. Pro tip:
get a work ethic. But a promise is a promise. For your sad amount of
work, a sad amount of Rubees!
[If Mario gets a decent amount of Rubees...]
Warden #1: Want your Rubees, do you, little flea? Well, fine. For your utterly
average work, here's an average sum of Rubees.
[Once Mario gets 100 Rubees or more, he goes to the lower floor and enters the
door farthest to the left. Inside is a prisoner]
Prisoner #1: Hey, new gerbil. You wanna learn a little secret? Yeah, I betcha
you do... Just slip me 100 Rubees. I'll tell ya somethin' good.
Honest. It's prime info.
- Pay the man!
- No way!
[If "No way!" is chosen...]
Prisoner #1: What, you don't trust me? Pfft! You must lead a sad little gerbil
life if you can't trust people.
[If "Pay the man!" is chosen...]
Prisoner #1: Your mom taught you to trust strangers, huh? Yeah, solid
parenting, right there. Well, turns out she was a smart cookie.
I'm gonna give you the VIP room passcode. The secret code is...
5963! What good is it? That's a secret! Duh! Just remember 5963,
gerbil. Thank me later.
[Mario uses this passcode to get into a secret room, where more prisoners are
getting Rubees by running on wheels like a hamster]
Warden #2: RUN, GERBILS!
[The warden is shown]
Warden #2: 'Round and 'round and 'round she goes! When I'll retire, nobody
knows! Big Boss Mimi hates the dark more than old ham! So move those
gerbil legs! POOOOOOWERRRR UUUUUUUP!
[Mario talks to the warden]
Warden #2: This is the VIP generator room. Run in a wheel, make volts, earn
some cash! Yeah, major upgrade from that other room! You'll earn
crazy Rubees in here! Unh! So, a new gerbil, huh... Hungry for
Rubees, gerbil? You wanna work here?
- I'm ready!
- No way!
[If "No way!" is chosen...]
Warden #2: Fine. Go sit in the dark and cry like the baby gerbil you are. What
do I care, right? Wanna work hard? Great. Wanna cry about it? Fine.
I don't care. Gerbil.
[If "I'm ready!" is chosen...]
Warden #2: Great, great, just hang on for one second for me... MOOOOOVE,
GERBILS! MOVE! Y'know, sometimes I wonder why I do this...but it's
simple: work is fun! You ready?
[If "No" is chosen...]
Warden #2: Y'know, this latest crop of volt gerbils is pretty weak. I'd outwork
them on one leg!
[If "Yes" is chosen...]
Warden #2: Good answer! Now get in there, gerbil! MOVE!
[The warden opens the empty wheel, and Mario jumps in. It then closes, and
Mario begins running to the right to make the wheel roll. When he stops...]
Warden #2: Awwww, what's the matter? Tuckered out, little gerbil?
[If "Yes" is chosen, the warden will say the following things depending on how
many Rubees you got]
Warden #2: You call that working, gerbil? Me, I call that a miserable excuse
for labor. I guess you still have some pay coming, though. C'mere.
Nibble a few Rubees, gerbil.
[She opens the wheel and gives Mario his earned Rubees]
Warden #2: Hmmm... I wouldn't call you the star of all gerbil-kind, but that
wasn't too shabby. C'mere. It's not exactly a gerbil banquet of
Rubees, but it's nothing to sneeze at.
[After you get a whole lot of Rubees at once...]
Warden #2: Whooo! You're just a little scamperer, aren't you? That's what I
call a can-do gerbil! You ought to try out for the annual
Gerbilympics, y'know? You could win medals! We reward scampering
like that around here! C'mere for your payoff, Super Gerbil!
[Once Mario gets 10,000 or more Rubees, he goes to the middle floor and enters
3D mode, where he finds a hidden chest. It opens]
Chest: *quietly* Know the secret?
[Mario gets confused, then a Pixl comes out]
Pixl: 'CUZ I DOOOO!
Pixl: So, do ya know the secret, pard? Well? Do ya? Iffen you close yer
peepers...and imagine real hard...that the world's gone... Why, it's just
about the biggest dern thrill ever!
Pixl: WHUH-HUH?! My senses are tellin' me that you're the hero! Whoa... Hey,
welcome, pard. Got some bad news, though. Looks to me like yer a bit
lackin' in thrills. I can't give my power to anyone who's too skinny in
the thrills department. So here's what we do, pard! I'll recharge yer
thrill gauge over the next ten seconds!
Pixl: You ready? Here goes!
[Mario falls asleep]
Pixl: ONE MARZIIIIIIIIIIIILION!
[Mario wakes up]
Pixl: Now yer all chargified, pard! Yepper, now you've got yer thrills! Now
remember, we Pixls got loads of power, so you'd best be real careful with
us! We had a little dustup with them Ancients 2,000 years ago...but we're
pards now. So let's go have us some thrills, huh?! C'mon!
[The Pixl, Slim, joins Mario]
"The sideways-turning Pixl named Slim is now your pard! You can use Slim's
power to turn sideways and avoid traps or enemies! And when you're sideways,
you won't take damage...as long as you stay still!"
Slim: So now ya now the secret, huh, pard? Don't ya? Playin' hide-an'-seek is
the biggest thrill you can find! You oughta try it!
[Mario goes back to the prisoner room he was at earlier, and finds a hidden
prisoner in 3D]
Prisoner #2: Fine timing, friend of mine! I just got hold of some verrry
delectable info! You're timely, so it's yours! I was gonna charge
10,001 Rubees, but for you...10,000! Sound good?
- No way!
[If "No way!" is chosen...]
Prisoner #2: Pfft. Know what you are, friend of mine? C-H-E-A-P. Take a hike.
[If "Sure..." is chosen...]
Prisoner #2: Thanks, buddy of mine! Listen, and listen good. Mimi was napping,
OK? And I heard her start sleeptalking... And she whispered...
41262816... Think it's her boyfriend's phone number or something?
[With this new passcode, Mario finds a hidden passage on the top floor near the
prisoner's room. He finds a hidden ladder which leads to two electrical
barriers. He uses Slim to get past the barriers, then he uses the passcode he
discovered on the door to unlock it. It holds 1,000,000 Rubees]
"You got 1,000,000 Rubees!"
[Mario now goes to the door at the bottom-right corner of the room]
Mimi: Oh, hi there! Big welcome! So happy to have you here at Rubee Savings and
[He talks to her]
Mimi: First off, THANKS for taking out a special Rubee loan! Now, what can I do
- Pay off some Rubees!
- Check my balance!
- Dropping in for kicks!
- I love you!
[If "Check my balance!" is chosen...]
Mimi: You have an outstanding Rubee balance on this loan of 1000000. Remember
to make your payments on time! And remember...BIG SMILE!
[If "Dropping in for kicks!" is chosen...]
Mimi: You don't need anything? Well, golly, then how about you GET LOST RIGHT
NOW! I HAVE WORK TO DO!
[If "I love you!" is chosen...]
Mimi: Yeah, well, that's just super. Know what I love? Rubees. Go get me some,
[If "Pay off some Rubees!" is chosen...]
Mimi: Super! Let me just take all those Rubees off your hands! There you go!
[She takes all of Mario's Rubees. When he pays all 1,000,000...]
Mimi: Well, thank you SO much for paying off your Rubee loan in...full... ...?
Mimi: *shocked* WHAAAAT?! How did you earn enough Rubees to pay it off?! That's
not supposed to happen! Nooo... You've broken my wonderful curse!
[She floats up in the air]
Mimi: NYAAAAAAAH! I'LL GET YOU!
[A light shines]
[She explodes into millions of pieces, then a star block appears]
Tippi: So, that young imp put a curse on this mansion, then... But who was she,
really? I'm worried about Merlee... We must hurry to her aid...
[Mario nods, then he goes inside the cage the star block is in using Slim. He
hits it to end the chapter]
Chapter 2-4: The Basement Face-off [CH24]
"The mysterious handmaid Mimi disappeared in a bizzare explosion... What
exactly was her plan, and why did she try to enslave Mario and friends? After
the incident, Princess Peach noticed stairs going down. "Here we go!" she
said. "I wonder if Merlee is down here?" thought our heroes as they traded
worried glances... The two solemnly made their way down, knowing there was no
other path to follow."
Tippi: The Pure Heart is near... I feel its tremors so much more strongly down
Voice: Ah! Hooray! Whoopee! Thanks for coming to look for me!
[Mario looks around, then gets confused. Merlee's spirit appears]
Merlee: Beautiful, mysterious Merlee! Mistress of the house, it's me! So glad
it's you I see! So long I've waited for you. Your arrival is well past
due. But we can't meet like this, oh no, for something's amiss. An evil
one is after me, and safe and sound I cannot be.
Merlee: In the basement do I dwell, mazelike rooms are my cell, you will find
me, I can tell... And...if you do, take care... For...your eyes...may
err... Trust nothing...foul...or fair...
[She starts to fade out]
Merlee: No... I cannot...last... My power...is...fading...fast... The
distance...is...too...vast... Are...you...ready to find me? Beware...
if you do, I plea... ... .. ... .. . . .. .... .. ... . ...
.. .. .... .. . . . .. . . .. .... . .
[She fades out]
Tippi: She's gone... Was that apparition really Merlee? Why do you suppose she
was telling us to be so careful when we find her?
[Mario goes through the basement, and through a maze of doors. Eventually he
ends up finding Merlee]
Merlee: Ahh, yes, how very nice... Thanks for coming! Thank you twice!
[Mario notices her]
Merlee: Mysterious and so lovely, mistress of the house you see... It's me,
Merlee! I shine on, such is my lot, a sun to those fate to me
brought... And I knew that soon I'd see you buzz on by, little bees.
Hee hee hee hee hee!
[Mario walks up to her and responds]
Tippi: We've come seeking the Pure Heart...
Merlee: Oh, yes, of course, I know! The Pure Heart for Mario! ...And Co.!
Merlee: For you, yes, I'll gladly part with that purest Pure Heart. Mmm, but
there is a wee fee: yes, yes, 10,000,000 Rubees! Quite a bargain, you
agree? So, folks, if you'd be dears, sign this dotted line here, and
it's yours, free and clear!
[When you refuse...]
Merlee: If you lack the Rubees now, a smallish loan I could allow. You can work
it off somehow. Just sign here, my dear...
[When you refuse...]
Merlee: ...OK, here's what we'll do. Have I got a deal for you! Sign up for a
loan, and boom! A free gift! Away with gloom! A Super Mega Ultra
Shroom! Just sign here, my dear...
[When you refuse...]
Merlee: Ugh, fine, you bargain hard, I'll also throw in Beardward, a Pixl made
of oats and lard. Isn't that so nice of me? I'm the best, don't you
see? Here, dear, sign and cheer...
[When you refuse...]
Merlee: NYAAAH! Idiots, the lot of you! Turning down such a coup! None of you
have a clue! Here it is: your last shot! Sign right now, on the dot!
[When you refuse, the real Merlee appears]
Merlee (Real): Good choice, for my sake... This Merlee's a total fake... Listen
not! She is a snake!
Merlee (Fake): Mimimimimimimimimimimi... No point in trying to fool anyone
[She turns into Mimi]
Mimi: Gee, lookee here! The girl you thought was a handmaid or a Merlee
imposter... She's actually the faithful servant of Count Bleck, master
impersonator Mimi! Golly, I was hoping we could settle this peacefully,
Mimi: Oh, you want to make things ugly, huh? Well, that's super. Let's get
Mimi: TRUE MIMI, COME FORTH!
[The area rumbles, then her head snaps and spins around. She turns into a big
Merlee: Please, my friends, beware. A barrier protects her there. In fact, it's
everywhere. I think attacks may well be useless against such as she.
Tippi: Attacks won't work? Ugh... What shall we do?
Merlee: I must suggest you flee. Come and find the real me. I am hiding, look
and see! If you can, my magic may weaken her and win the day! Hurry,
hurry, don't delay!
[Mario goes through more of the basement, while avoiding the spider form of
Mimi. He eventually enters a female's bathroom, and opens one of the stalls,
which contains Merlee inside a toilet]
Merlee: Hee hee hee hee hee!
[Mario is confused, then she comes out of the toilet]
Merlee: Hee hee hee hee hee! Found me! The real Merlee! I shine on, such is my
lot, a sun to those fate to me brought...
[She jumps off and exits the stall]
Tippi: The real Merlee? Truly? In a place like this?
Merlee: I'm afraid that Mimi freak was too robust, and I too weak... The Pure
Heart I quickly took and hid where she would never look... But now
you're here; hooray! This bad tide will turn today! Soon that awful
Mimi pays... You and I can now join up to teach that tiny, bratty pup a
lesson: now let's power up!
Voice: Ooh, I don't think so...
[Mimi enters the room in her spider form]
[Mimi walks toward Merlee, as a light flashes on the screen repeatedly]
[There ends up being two Merlees]
Merlee (1): Stop pretending to be me! Everyone knows you are Mimi! Come on,
friends! Attack! We can drive her back!
Merlee (2): What is this you talk about? You're the faker! And a lout! Don't be
fooled by her act! Get her now! Now! Attack!
Merlee (1): It's me! The real Merlee!
Merlee (2): No, it's me! The true Merlee!
[The first one turns to Mario]
Merlee (1): Look at us very closely. One of us has real beauty...and one is
fake as can be.
Merlee (2): Oh, please, you make me gag. I am hot; no need to brag. And you...
Well, you're a hag.
Merlee (1): Grrr! What a fib-maker! You're such a fake faker!
Merlee (2): Oh, now, come off it, dear! You're a dog from eye to ear! And your
breath reeks, I fear.
Merlee (2): *quietly* BIG PIG!
Merlee (1): *quietly* CHOW COW!
[They start fighting, but eventually stop]
Merlee (1): This is going nowhere, see... Let's let them pick a Merlee and
settle it; do you agree?
[Mario points to himself]
Merlee (2): Sounds like a good thought. 'Cause I'm the real me (hot) and you
really aren't (not).
Merlee (1): Hee hee hee hee hee... Oh, how much do you amuse! You're a fake!
You will lose!
Merlee (2): Hee hee hee hee hee... You're fake, you stupid fake! We all know
you're the snake!
Both: IT'S ON, CON!
[A quiz arena appears]
Computer: IIIIIIIT'S the 66th Annual..."That's My Merlee!" show! How're you
Computer: Let's get going! You're gonna ask these two Merlees a total of FIVE

Merlee (2): Not to go and make a fuss, but I was the "Odd Propoise."
Computer: Well, what do you know? Next question, please!
[If "What do you wash first?" is chosen...]
Computer: Whoo! This question is a little risque, folks! What is the first
thing you wash in the bathtub?
Merlee (1): Not that you should care, but I wash my bangs of hair.
Merlee (2): I start with the tile mold, then the faucets, hot and cold...
Computer: Now! Time for our final question, folks! Excitement! Which will it

Merlee (2): Well, that would have to be my effervescent personality. People
seem to love it, see.
[After asking five questions...]
Computer: Well, folks, those were all five questions! So... Which one is the
real Merlee?! Search your minds! LET'S HAVE A GUESS!
[Mario picks the one with flies around her]
Computer: Are you suuuure about that? Think good and hard, folks!
[If "No" is chosen, you have to guess again. If "Yes" is chosen...]
Computer: Well, enough suspense! Let's see if the one you picked is the real
Merlee... A fateful moment, folks! I'm on pins and needles!
[If you selected the right one, then after a few seconds...]
Computer: DING! RIGHT!
Merlee: Hee hee hee hee hee... Well, of course, obviously! Nobody could copy
Merlee (Fake): Stupid-heads... I'd mimicked her perfecty! You know it! ... I
guess I'll congratulate you...by tearing you to little bits like
[She turns into Mimi, in her normal form. Everyone is back in the bathroom,
then she transforms into a spider. Merlee gets scared]
Mimi: *quietly* U-Urr... URK! URK!
[Merlee runs off]
Merlee: I will cheer from over here! Rah! Rah! Whoosh-bing-bah! Hit 'er in the
knee! ...If she has one. Does she?
Mimi: Heeheeheeheeheeheehee... She's a fast one, isn't she? Oh, golly, well,
whatever. I'll finish you off first! MIMIMIMIMIMIMI!
[They battle Mimi. After she's hit once and takes no damage, Merlee breaks her
barrier and she gets damaged]
Mimi: But...what? Why can you damage me?! I'm supposed to be all INVINCIBLE!
Count Bleck's power was supposed to protect me!
Merlee: Rah! Rah! Whoosh-bing-bah! You can now hit her, dear! For this is no
normal cheer! This cheer is magic, woo! Her magic barrier is through!
Mimi: Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?! When did this happen?! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! I feel
completely naked! How could you?!
[After a few legs have been broken off of Mimi...]
Merlee: Hee hee on you, dearie! Now you shall see the way a good cheer wins the
[After some more hits...]
Merlee: Yes! Yes! Our team's best! GOOO...TEAM!
[After she's been defeated, her head falls to the ground]
Mimi: Mimimimimiuuuuuurgh... B-But how could you... It's impossible... How...
[She explodes and turns back into her real form]
Mimi: Uurr-urrk... URK! URK! Don't think you've beaten me for good, dummies...
Next time you won't be so lucky... Remember that... Stupid-heads!
[She floats up and disappears, then Merlee enters the room and walks to Mario]
Merlee: Fine job on that Mimi, yes! The Pure Heart's safe, evil's repressed.
[The outside of the mansion is shown]
Merlee: You know, the tenants here guarded it for 1,500 years, waiting for you
to draw near! Finally, that duty's done, and I'm ecstatic, for one. But
wait, ere we finish up. I must tell you something, yup.
[Back in the bathroom...]
Merlee: So, the Light Prognosticus was read by you, yes? It was written there
that I and my ancestors waited by the Pure Heart, staying spry... But
something wasn't written there, and of it you must be aware.
Merlee: There is another prophecy: a heart of chaos can only be beaten by four
of mystery... Four heroes unite, their hope burns forth light to
shatter the walls of blight. That is how despair, it dies, such is what
we prophesize here in the home of the wise.
Princess Peach: Four...heroes...
Merlee: I am sure the pair of you, Mario and Peach, you too, are the first
of heroes true. So, then, it falls to you, to find the other heroes
two. I would guess, if I had to, the others might be known to you.
Merlee: Now, finally, let me be! I hereby do my sworn duty! There! From me it
parts! Here, heroes! A Pure Heart!
[Merlee takes out the Pure Heart and gives it to Mario]
"You got a Pure Heart"
"Count Bleck's servant Mimi had laid a nasty trap for Mario and friends... But
with the help of Merlee, faithful defender of the Pure Heart, the day was won.
But who were the other two heroes mentioned by Merlee? With five Pure Hearts
to be found, Mario knew this adventure had only begun..."
Castle Bleck Scene 3 [BLK3]
Nastasia: ...Yeah, so I just got a brief memo from Mimi? It says "I messed up
bad!" ...That's the message in its entirety. Yeah...
Count Bleck: Bleh heh heh heh heh... She failed to best him, even with my gift
of power? A Light Prognosticus hero... Descendants of the ancient
tribe... Their strength grows.
Voice: Count Bleck!
O'Chunks: I beg yeh, gimme the honor o' whalin' on this pack o' nambly-
pamblies! I swear on me whiskers that I'll spank 'em like naughty
little Cherbils, I will!
Nastasia: Oh, so, O'Chunks, yeah, you think you're all set to go? So I guess
you finished up that report on your own inadequacy that I needed?
O'Chunks: Eah... Y'see... I...just got a wee bit left. I'm workin' on me
conclusion. Yeh gotta gimme a break! Me writin' takes time, lass! An'
1,000 pages be a lot!
Count Bleck: O'Chunks, calm yourself. Take a minion time-out. Count Bleck will
[He spreads out his left arm]
Count Bleck: Dimentio! Come to me...Count Bleck!
Dimentio: And so I arrive, like a sudden windstorm at a kindergarten picnic!
Count Bleck: Bleh heh heh heh heh... You'd like some playtime, I imagine,
Dimentio? So you shall have it, but do not disappoint Count Bleck.
Dispatch this hero.
Dimentio: Your wish is my command. Besides, this fool sounds like an amusing
challenge. Now if there is nothing else, I'll just be on my way.
Ciao, my count.
Nastasia: Yeah, so, O'Chunks? Can you fill me in on why you're still not
writing that report?
O'Chunks: A report?! What are yeh... Oh... Yeah. A'right, I'm goin', yeh great
Nastasia: Count, let me just bring you up to speed on the current state of the
castle... I still have to root out a few unconverted rogues, but I'll
report back soon...
Count Bleck: Heroes... Trying to save these pathetic old worlds. Bleck, says
Count Bleck! Bleh heh heh heh heh heh... Their efforts are in
vain. No one can stop Count Bleck!
[Bleck leaves with the Dark Prognosticus]
Count Bleck: Just as no one can ease the tempest that rages in my suffering
Luigi's Event [LGIE]
[Luigi is shown outside of one of the castle's rooms, just like where Peach was
Luigi: Ohh... My head...
[He gets up and looks around]
Luigi: ...Hey! Where am I?
[He stops for a moment]
Luigi: Oh yeah, now I remember! I was saving Princess Peach, but I screwed it
Voice: You awake, Green?
[Luigi turns around and sees two Goombas]
Luigi: Yeah... Hey there, uh, bad guys. You doing all right?
Goomba #1: Yeah, we're doing OK. Good to see you made it! (Figured he was
done... Dude is tougher than he looks.)
Luigi: So yeah...kinda awkward... Say, have you guys seen the princess and
Goomba #2: Nope, not so much. You're the only one we found lying around here.
Hopefully, they're both OK. (Get a load of this moron! Who cares
about his friend?)
Goomba #1: Near as we can figure, most of the other minions got captured or
something. And we're probably next! (Why is this dude so calm?!
We're behind enemy lines!)
Goomba #2: Sooooo... Luigi, old buddy! What do you think about maybe getting
out of here? We're thinking maybe you open up a path for us...and we
all bail. Watcha think?
[Luigi shakes his head]
Luigi: No... I... I couldn't possibly! I've gotta save the princess!
Goomba #1: Man...wow. Did NOT expect that. All those stories about Great
Luigi's daring exploits... We'd heard you were the defender of the
helpless! We have no one else!
[Luigi is shocked]
Luigi: The G-Great Luigi, you say? A... A daring defneder? ...Me?
Luigi: Then I've got no choice! Luigi must spring into action! My fans need me!
Goomba #1: Oh, you are the BEST! (Man, that was waaaaay too easy. What a
Goomba #2: We're right behind you! (But the second the going gets rough, we
Luigi: Then follow ME, brave...er...Goombas! Here we gooooo!
[Luigi goes through the castle via some doorways on the left side. He goes down
a seemingly endless hallway, until...]
Voice: Great Luigi! Wait for us!
[Luigi turns around and the two Goombas appear. One of them walks up to a wall,
which is a dead end]
Goomba #1: Uh oh... Looks like the end of the line here.
[Luigi walks up to him]
Luigi: Oh boy... Looks like you're right. Now what do we do?
Goomba #2: Uh... Shouldn't we look for another way out, maybe? (This guy's
useless.) If we stay put, somebody is defenitely going to spot--
[He gets brainwashed]
Goomba #2: GAZOOOORT!
Goomba #2: HAIL BLECK!
[He walks off to the others]
Goomba #1: GARY! NO!
Voice: Hmm-mm-mm... I've been looking all OVER for you.
[Nastasia and some brainwashed troops are shown]
Nastasia: Yeah, you're that guy who really wasn't a team player back at the
wedding... You're gonna need a little disciplinary action, I think...
So let's get started, hm?
[She walks up to him]
Goomba #1: Oh, man... Poor Gary... All right! It's time for me to Goomba-up!
[He walks over to Nastasia]
Goomba #1: Hey, lady! Got room for one more on your team?
Luigi: Whah?! Hey! Wait a second! What are you DOING?
Goomba #1: What's it look like, genius? I'm getting with the winning team!
[Luigi is surprised]
Nastasia: Yeah, good call. Love the enthusiam, there. Go ahead and swear your,
y'know, undying loyalty to the count, and you're on board.
Goomba #1: Hey, count me in, lady! HERE WE GO, COUNT, HERE WE GO! LOVE THAT
Luigi: You... You dirty TRAITOR!
[The troops walk up a bit]
Nastasia: OK, guys, new agenda? Hold this fool down so I can get his
priorities on track...
Troops: YES, MA'AM!
[They pick up Luigi]
Luigi: Ack! Wh-Whoa! Hey! No! Mario, where are you? HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP!
[Nastasia brainwashes Luigi, and the screen fades out]
"You're late. Did something happen?"
"Yes, my father caught me. Sneaking out of the castle wasn't easy after that."
"I was worried you wouldn't come..."
"You are a strange girl... You know what I am and yet you do not seem afraid."
"I don't care what you are. I just wanted to see you. Is that... Is that so
"No. No, of course not. I wanted to see you, too. Blumiere... Do you mind if I
sit next to you?"
"Please do, Timpani. Let's return to our conversation. I must know more of
