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.

      1. The game is very good

  29. Kittyboo32 says:

    how do you get 2 level 50 for the bombomb’s trouble “Erase that grafiti”?

    • Halaswisscheese says:

      You need to go the pit of 100 trials. I dont remember how you erase the grafiti but it shouldn’t be hard to figure out. I suggest being on a high level for this (>20) You will know once you get to level 50. P.S. Dont use the guy who teleports you down levels if you are going to miss level 50!!! (Duh)

  30. Halaswisscheese says:

    Go to the place where you help people and get money. Accept the one from ???. You have to find a badge. (To find it, go to where you fought hooktail and use Flurry to blow away a secret wall in the center of the room). After going back, Mrs. Mounz joins your team!!
    P.S. She isnt very good at fighting but… by pressing X on your controller, she will SNIFF OUT ITEMS and TELL YOU WHEN THEY ARE NEARBY!!!

    • Den says:

      Ms. Mowz not very useful in battle? Her normal attack ignores defense, so it’s really good against enemies that have defense.

  31. Halaswisscheese says:

    Go to the pit of 100 trials with a lot of ultra and jelly shroms. Get to the last trial and you face BONETAIL, Hooktail’s and Goomtail’s brother. Make sure to have the badge where you cant get posioned or frozen. After beeting him, you get a SUPER BEAST BADGE!!!!!
    P.S. If you are in the middle of the trials and your mom makes you stop playing, pause your game and turn of your TV, NOT YOUR GAMECUBE!! (Duh)

  32. Halaswisscheese says:

    Go to the twilight town and then into the woods. Fight all of the dayzee flower things. When you come across a GOLDEN one, use your best move to kill it. You get 30+ star points each time!

    SECRET BOSS ALERT!!! Go to the CREPPY STEEPLE where all of the boos are. Let them latch on to you and them hit them with your super/ultra hammer. Do this twice and you face ATOMIC BOO!

  33. Pikachu says:

    I beat the Shadow Queen with 1 Hp left.

  34. luigiten says:

    how do I beat Lord Crump second robot because I was so close to knocking him out but his X-punch took me out.

  35. Champion5 says:

    Hey everybody I’m back! Ask me almost anything and I can answer it!

  36. weirdo says:

    ask me anything except about grodus, bowser, shadow queen, or bonetail (final bosses)

  37. IcyFlame says:

    What happens when u do all the troubles in the trouble center? ps icant finish the one about the chef in the train!!! (cant find the golden leaf from creepy steeple) plz help!

  38. boohead84 says:

    Hello all I am back and ready to answer more questions fire away.

  39. Kapow230 says:

    I haven’t posted in a while. I beat the game three times over. EASY.

  40. ranger danger says:

    what do thouse 7stars on the wall mean im confused please help

  41. Halaswisscheese says:

    here is a good tip: equip this badges jumpman, power plus, power plus and power plus, spike shield and all or nothing. your jump will be able to do a ton of damage!

  42. Champion5 says:

    In Thwonk Fortress, in the sewers when you are facing the gold fuzzy, use the badge power bounce to repetedly hit it. Beating the gold fuzzy will win you the battle more easily. I had to restart the game, so I’ll be posting about earlier stuff.

  43. Champion5 says:

    Sorry I didn’t finish the last comment, but here’s the rest of it. After you open the chest you’ll find a badge. Go back to town and go to the inn (not the one in the Koopa village). Go up to your room and you will see a door on the far left. go through it and you’ll see the badge shop. Keep going left and you’ll see Ms. Mouz. She will ask you if she can join your team. She has a move that steals opponents’ items so accept. That’s all folks!

  44. Champion5 says:

    I’m back! Sorry about not posting new secrets lately, but I have a good one now. Check the help center often. Eventually a message will come up from ???. Accept it. Next, go to Hooktail Castle, and go to where you defeated Hooktail. Use the partner who blows wind and blow in the center of the room. you will find a chest, and open it.

  45. paper mario dude says:

    to beat the shadow queen use vivian and you should at least have 70 hp and 50 fp

  46. Yoko says:

    I can’t beat the leader of the X-Nauts.

  47. sepron7 says:

    I BEAT THE SHADOW QUEEN FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER! ……….ON MY 1ST TRY! [I only got 1 star point, though I wasn’t Danger Mario]. :[

  48. Trascout says:

    You have to explore the station for the elevator key.

  49. blahblahblah says:

    can sumone help me at riverside station? i cannot figure out what to do.

    • Rich4270 says:

      You’re in luck! Just go inside the building in front of you, then go open the door to your right! Then go roll under the jail, hit the switch, go upstairs, get the key go back then go futher to the right locked door.
