You only get the Wave Battle Bonus if you challenge multiple enemies at once. To do this, confront multiples enemies at once in overworld. Make sure to defeat each wave of enemies with Great Lineups to receive higher Wave Battle Bonuses.

Battle Bonus Rewards


Buy Time.png
Since Paper Mario: The Origami King does not have a level-up system, the main reward for winning each battle are coins, which is essential in buying Time, useful items, and accessories.

Most of the accessories are pretty expensive. So getting battle bonuses can help you earn lots of coins. Remember, the better you perform in battle, the more coins you get. Ace every battle!
