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.

    bob:

    a little trick that helps is to have about 80 star points before battiling grodus. after you beat him, you will level up and all your hp and fp will go to the max!

    hammerman: the ultimate challange is to beat the pit of 100 trials. at the end therre is a monster with 200 hp and moves stronger than the shadow queen!

      to find genral white, go to kee haul kee and talk to the bomb dude. then just keep follwoing what everyone says. when you get to the person who says that he was tired, go to the snowy place and go into the third building. youll find him there. to find gold bomb, go to polishy heights and youll see him there with his fam and by the train staion.

    The yoshi partner best in my opinion. Vivian is a close second

  14. Now how do you get the lever off the boat.

  15. HEY BOO! How do you avoid Hooktail’s trick?

  16. Hey Eveyone today is my Birthday so I’m giving out a free tip. Under Rougeport there are giant blocks that seperate the rest of the area and next to them are giant switches that once hit blue pipes will appear out of nowhere they lead to numerous area around the world and make easy shortcuts even though you’ve already been there.

  17. I’m going to extend the time of the question to next friday. MAY THE BEST CHARACTER WIN!!!!!!!!!!

    The only advice I can give for the shadow queen is to get the Quick Change badge so that when she charges up for her shadow attack you can switch to Vivian to use veil. And for Bonetail, instead of trying to superguard, just do a standard guard so his breath won’t put you to sleep.

  19. To PTK: You mean Fahr Outpost simple just use the ultra Boots under a giant treasure chest and get the Ultra Hammer and go under Rogueport on the west side use yoshi to get across and the stone block there is a pipe go in the pipe and you are there

  20. hey boo how u get to snowy place

  21. bob at where if at shwonk fortress use pow block if in arena use yoshi gulp

  22. I allready hit the blue stachue 4 times,and the red one 3 times.

  23. To everyone: Remember I’m still giving out tips as the year goes on so if anybody needs help Shout HEY BOO!, and give me your questions sorry if I’m late on giving out hints or advice. Laters!

  24. To Kororo: Koop’s friend his long lost father and you must get the thin curse and traverse all the way to the top of the castle and fight Hooktail. and Some advice for Bonetail? Use power Hammer and Sweat Feast And your partners and you’ll be fine and also bring Life Shrooms it’s gonna be a long way down with no save point and by the way thanks for your help on Zelda
