Everyone knows the famous and widely popular Mario Bros series. Something fans can sink their teeth into is Paper Mario: The Origami King, a 2020 action-adventure role playing game that is just as good as the other titles in the series. Developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch.

Premise of the Game

Nintendo‘s Paper Mario: The Origami King

The premise of Paper Mario: The Origami King has similarities to previous titles such as the characters. It follows the story of Mario and friends while they set out on a journey to save the Mushroom Kingdom from being transformed into origami. Mario and friends need to save Princess Peach from decorative streamers that extend across the kingdom. Players will, as usual, take on the role of Mario and venture through the linear open world fighting enemies and solving puzzles. The goal of the game is to defeat the story’s main antagonist King Olly and the five streamers he created.

Main Characters in Paper Mario: The Origami King

Characters are new and fresh

Certainly, Nintendo could not create a Mario centered video game without the main characters of the typical Mario universe. The main characters of Paper Mario: The Origami King are slightly different, however, with new characters added to help Mario defeat King Olly.

  • Mario: Main character
  • Luigi: Marios younger twin brother
  • Bowser: King Bowser is the main protagonist of the Mario franchise
  • Princess Peach: Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom
  • DJ Toad: Lighthouse keeper
  • Feeling Fungi: Group of quartets of toads
  • Olivia: Marios main ally in Paper Mario: the Origami King

Secret ending

Collect all trophies in the museum (i.e., 100% completion of everything in the game). Then, successfully complete the game again, and wait until the end of the “Staff Credits” sequence. The screen will cut back to the Origami Castle display featured near the end of the Origami Festival sequence and will zoom in on the empty origami chairs sitting atop the origami castle. The Origami Master toad will suddenly walk in from the right side of the screen and stop in front of the origami castle. He will then turn around towards the origami castle and add two items to the display. Once the Origami Master toad is finished, he will walk off screen to the right, and it will be revealed that the two items added to the display were actually miniature origami versions of King Olly and Olivia (both seated in their respective origami chairs).

Secret endgame banners

There are two secret achievements the game does not display but records. If either of these are accomplished, a corresponding banner will appear in the ending picture in the credits. Note: The game does not count either of these achievements towards 100%.

Gold fist banner: Successfully complete the game without equipping battle accessories.

Gold heart banner: Successfully complete the game without getting a “Game Over.”


Trophies are special items Mario can unlock by completing difficult challenges throughout the game and by unlocking everything inside the Musee Champignon. After unlocking a trophy, Mario can talk to the Toad inside the Museum to add it to the Trophies Collection inside the Treasure Gallery. Successfully complete the indicated task to unlock the corresponding trophy:

Art Collector: Unlocking everything in the Art Gallery.

Battle King: Win 200 battles.

Coin Collector: Collect 300,000 total coins (not affected by spending them).
