Paper Mario is a newcomer character introduced in Super Smash Bros. Calamity. Paper Mario is the paper-thin version of our famous plumber Mario, like if he was a cutout from a storybook. Paper Mario stars in his own series of role-playing games, fighting multiple forces of darkness and evil along with a few of his allies and partners he gains throughout his adventures, like a Goomba...a Koopa...a Lakitu? Paper Mario teams up with enemies in the Mario series...weird.

Changes

Notice Paper Mario is turned into a playable character unlike his other appearances in Melee, Brawl and Wii U/3DS, where he was just a trophy.

Miscellaneous

Animation Description
On-screen appearance Paper Mario jumps from the book from Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam happily, landing on the ground and adjusting his hat.
Idle animation Paper Mario adjusts his hat.
Side taunt Paper Mario stands on the tips of his toes and looks forwards as he shades his eyes with his hands. He does the same in the opposite direction for a second before returning to a battle stance.
Standard taunt Paper Mario spins around before giving a thumbs up to the screen. This is based on one of his victory animations from the original Paper Mario.
Down taunt Paper Mario crumbles up and falls on the ground, before reforming.
Up taunt Paper Mario jumps upwards, slowly floating downwards like a sheet of paper before landing and jumping back up. This may be inspired by one of Jigglypuff's taunts
Victory theme Click here to listen!
Paper Mario's victory theme is a flourish remix of the last few notes of the theme that plays whenever he gets a Crystal Star in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.
Victory pose #1 Paper Mario spins around before wagging his finger at the screen. This is based on one of his victory animations from the original Paper Mario.
Victory pose #2 Paper Mario will look shocked that he won, before blushing and rubbing the back of his head.
Victory pose #3 Paper Mario spins around multiple times before striking a pose. This is based on his animation after leveling up in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam.
"Copy Block" victory poses If Paper Mario wins while having at least a copy still with him, that copy will do the same or a different victory pose than Paper Mario himself.

Trivia

  • Akin to Mr. Game & Watch, Paper Mario is two-dimensional, meaning he is flat on every stage.
