During the Can Opener objective at Autumn Mountain, a Spike and a Bone Goomba will accompany you for a short time. If you happen to start a battle while these characters are following you, they will also follow you into battle!

Non-Playable Companions

You won't be able to directly switch to and control any of your companions, but some will provide field abilities that Mario doesn't have. For example, Professor Toad can dig shining spots in the desert, for more coins or items.

You won't have to worry about choosing the right companion to get through an area. It is part of the story for a character to automatically join you when you arrive at the place where they're needed.

Battle Companions | Battle Partners

While they're with you, companions will join you in Ring Battles and help you defeat your enemies. Check the list of Paper Mario's Battle Partners below:

Olivia

Olivia will always be your battle companion. Aside from showing you the ropes in battle, Olivia will eventually learn to transform herself into the Vellumentals that you defeat in Battle. These Vellumental forms can then be used to defeat the other Vellumentals and Bosses that you fight throughout the game.

Bobby

While Bobby is with you in the field, he will be your companion in Ring Battles. Bobby's Bomb Bump has a low base attack power, but some of our team members have been able to get as much as 20 attack from good ol' Bobby. We are investigating what leads to this attack boost.

Professor Toad

As Mario's battle companion, Professor Toad can attack lined-up enemies in Ring Battles.

Kamek

As Mario's battle companion, Kamek can attack enemies in a 2x2 formation, during Ring Battles.

Bowser Jr.

As long as Bowser Jr. is with you, he'll join you in battle as well!

Bowser

As Mario's battle companion during Phase 2 of the battle with King Olly, Bowser will transform into a giant origami and fight Olly "Paper Sumo"-style.

Rescued Toads

After rescuing Toads from their origami forms, they will be your constant companions and cheer you on during Ring Battles, and even provide battle items and attacks, in exchange for coins!
