Top Ten Paper Mario: The Origami King CharactersWell, since it seems that nobody here on TheTopTens is interested in helping the modern Paper Mario series get the attention it deserves, I guess I'll just have to do it myself. Vote for the Paper Mario: The Origami King characters that YOU think deserve a spot on this list...
Nope, I'm not going to spoil Bobby's story here. It's best if you just play the game and experience his character and emotional impact for yourself.
Bobby is such an amazing character but also has a minor role in the game.
Mario's main ally throughout his journey is easily my favorite character in the game. Besides being Olly's sister and mostly a naive sweetheart, she also displays more emotion and personality than almost every other character in the game. She gains abilities that possibly make her the most powerful ally Mario has ever had on his side.
As the main big bad himself, the Origami King is probably not exactly the character you would expect this time around. He proves to be the most serious villain the Mario series has seen in quite a while, plotting to fold the world and Bowser's minions to his origami will and almost going through with his final wish: the extinction of all the toads in the universe by turning them all into blank paper.
Surprisingly, for once in the series, the character of Mario himself actually shows real character development and emotion, besides the literally paper-flat personality he usually has. Definitely a big win for the series.
Mario's ally through the final stretch of the game. Along with Kamek, I like how he shows concern for his minions and even helps Olivia by encouraging her to stand up to her evil brother.
One of Mario's allies throughout his journey, and a powerful fighter at that. I especially like how he actually shows concern for Olivia when he thinks she's been permanently unfolded. I hope this version of the great Magikoopa sticks around for a while.
The guardian of the purple streamer and the fourth member of The Legion of Stationery. Most notable for his unexpected gangster personality and slang, and also for the fact that he is literally a giant roll of tape that wants you dead.
This guy deserves to be higher on the list. What an awesome character. Excluding Olly, he's got the best fight in the game and one of the best soundtracks in the whole game.
The guardian of the yellow streamer and the third member of The Legion of Stationery. Besides all that, who knew a hole puncher of all things had such good taste in music and dance moves?
The guardian of the red streamer and the first member of The Legion of Stationery. His disdain for pop culture and Mario's fame, while being a heavy critic of art, sums him up pretty well. Also, he's French. Go figure.
Basically, Mario's unintentional locksmith of the game. Yeah, that's essentially all he does.
Paper Luigi is great.
