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.

    HEY Kid5, it goes like this.

    Red ///// Blue ///// Orange ///// Green

    Then you have to pour it in and then heat it for exactly 30 seconds. I had to use a timer for this one.

  7. someone please tell me how to defeat Sir Groudus and Bowser.

  8. ON the fifth star on princess peach how do you get the potion in order?

  9. Bowser3000: You need to get the chuckola kola from flavio but you need to trade him for a coconut and the thing you picked could be a badge that helps resist burns from fire monsters when jumping on them EQUIP IT it also deals more damage to them when you jump.

  10. HEY BOWSER 3000!
    Sorry the bottle is a badge.

  11. HEY BOWSER 3000!
    You go to the Captain Falco and he has it.Try to get a bump(shown in the games guru questions)I have never tried it but give him that.If that doesnt work then go to the bridge.When you first get there go down.Some where there should be steps down.Then you use your yoshi(whatever you named him i named mine Yoshi Jr. so I am going to call him that)To get to the tube.Then you go in the tube and hit the tree then give the coconut to Falco.
    PS.To get the bottle (it is a badge that makes you fire proof when jumping on enemies and it costs one bp)you get right above it on the bridge.Then you hold R then you slide through and get it.

  12. HEY BOO!!! I’m at the part where Bobbery asks you for the Chunkola Cola. Before going there, I got a soda bottle (?) . It isn’t in my Items or Important things pockets, and it isn’t there. What do I do?

  26. Bowser3000: where are you at?

  27. Hey CUBE NUTT!!! Here’s how you beat the armored Harriers. First exit the Glitz pit and then go to the hot dog stand and you will see the guy chasing an egg and he asks you to get it for him, and then you chase him and then he falls asleep (The egg) and the you go next to the juice shop and you will see a huge ! block and some boxes around it and then you jump on the boxes ’till you get on top of it. Then you ground pound on it and see what happens. I’m leaving now so when I come home I’ll type the rest of it in.
    BYE:!: ❗ ❗ 🙂

  28. To CUBE NUTT!: To defeat them, use a POW block.

  29. HEY BOO! How do you get Koops to stay on the switch? There is a little platform a the same height as the switch, but it’s too far away? Please help.

  30. Koops: you get the ultra hammer in rogueport and get the last star, and Boberry you just go a little farther ahead of the great tree to find flurrie, and Cube Nutt you use Yoshi to beat the iron dudes with his gulp move

  31. Bowser3000: Okay Peach finds a treasure but gets captured (obviously) and sends the map to you so you go to Rogueport and go on this (with help) and search for 7 crystal star, However bad guys (yes Bowser) get word about mario having the map and try to get the map. This is all I can say for right now.

  32. I’m fighting in Glitztown, but we can’t seem to beat the Harried things (theyu look like rocks with horns) It’s some move I’m not doing right. PLEASE can someone help me. I can’t find a cheat book anywhere for it, maybe someone knows where to find one. Somewhere in Flint MI.
