Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

How do I defeat Bonetail (at the bottom to the Rogueport Pit of 100 Trials), and what badges will I need?

Games Guru: I’d love to give you the goods, but this one is very complicated. This video might help, though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdYo0IZTeX4

How do you beat Bowser?

Games Guru: It’s really hard to beat Bowser. First, attack Kammy. Once Kammy is down, try hitting Bowser with Power Smash and other powerful attacks. Remember to guard against Bowser’s attacks with the A button on your controller. Try Vivian’s Fiery Jinx and Bobbery’s Bobomblast, too.

Can you give me some secret codes?

Games Guru: There are all kinds of little tricks that work some of the time with this game. For instance, when enemies attack you, if you perform an FP-using attack as they hit you and you get first strike, Mario will perform that attack on the battle screen without you using FP.

There is a persistent mole just left of the village on Keehaul Key. Whack him and he will give you a valuable bump. Leave and come right back and he will appear again. You can repeat this several times until the mole runs out of bumps and goes away. You can sell those bumps for 50 coins each.

  10. I’m past the thousand year door and the other dragon.[Hint] when you’re at creepy steeple and you see a Boo crying talk to it. it will ask you if you’re going to hurt it. say no. it will yell “PROMISE!!!???” and disappear. go outside then come back in. there will be Boos floating all around. they will attach to you. whack them with the super hammer until the Boo that you talked to earlier will snivel and say “you promised.(sniff)Boos! form up!”or something like that. they will then turn into super boo and battle you. if you win you will get the badge Lucky Start which really helps. if you need help say Champ before your comment.

  20. I just got it 2 weeks ago but im already on chapter 2 so im awsome:]

  21. Opps i mean give the letter to bobbery

  22. MARIO RULES what you do is you go to the bridge on the east side then you get your yoshi and istead of going over the bridge go just below the bridge a cross by jumping with the yoshi and flying over then ther will be a bunch of crates jump on those youll get to the roofs then you cross a few youll find a place just small enough for you to roll through roll through it youll find bobbery talk to him then go to podleys place and talk to podley he will give you a letter give it to podley P.S.go farther on the roofs and you will find someone who will tell you storys about the crystal stars

  23. To any people who are facing (or about to face the shadow queen), 1st,get 2 partner Hp badges and put them on ur partner. 2nd,get vivialn to get the attack so she can attack all enimes.(just skip this if you already have it.) 3rd, buy as many health/power items as you can.Last,you ethier can level up until you think you can beat her or you can fight her. P.s. I beat the game in 2007 sometime and i barely play it now, but if you have a question you can still ask me.

  24. any1 on that can answer my queston?
