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:

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.

    They recomend going after Maralyn first. But with me. I just jumped like mad till they were dead, and I used Art Attack and Sweet Feast if my HP and FP got low. And use stylish moves and appeal. That’s how I beat em.

    And you can get Jelly Ultras if you cook Jammin Jelly with a Ultra Shroom if your into using items to heal.

  18. To Paperman: You Don’t face Lord Crump a third time when your in the thousand year door you face Sir Grodus he has little drones that can protect him take them out and kill him.

  19. boohead84-

    Try Power jump and some star powers,like sweat treat will help get FP and HP back if your low.You can use stylish move,like right after you Do your first jump correctly Press A too do a stylish too gain even more Star Energy.

  21. How do you deafet Magnus Von Grapple 2.0?I am a good fighter but I always loose to Lord Crump.

  22. Does anyone have advice on how to beat Doopliss and the two shadow sirens in the palace of shadows?

  23. To Paperman: Okay Gloomtail should be easy he has 80 HP use Power smash with the hammer and Goombella’s Multiheadbonk and you should be fine if she’s dead use Boberry.
