Paper Mario is one of the sub-series' of the Mario series. The series currently has four installments: Paper Mario, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Super Paper Mario, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, and Paper Mario Color Splash. The games are generally RPGs, however, Super Paper Mario is a platformer with RPG elements instead, and later games are action-adventure games.

The series follows a paper version of Mario as he usually explores the world collecting seven different objects for one specific object. However, the later games in the series are different, sometimes only collecting six of a specific object and sometimes collecting eight.

The first Paper Mario game was prior planned to be known as Super Mario RPG 2, thus a sequel to the Mario RPG game on the SNES, but was later programmed into a different Mario game but still an RPG.
