happy pride month! Paper Mario knows that LGBTQ+ people deserve the love and respect of anyone else. He wants everyone to have fun and be safe throughout the various pride celebrations across the world.
Grodus gives Princess Peach a bed and a shower, tells his minions not to harm her, unwittingly offers her a throat lozenge, and only tries to sacrifice her body to a horrifying shadow-demon, like, one time.
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Mario and his partners breathe out puffs of air when in cold areas. However, when taking any additional follower character to a cold area (through the use of exploits), we can see that out of all playable characters, only Mario and his partners are programmed to breathe.
By performing a specific glitch allowing Mario to enter doors in Paper Mode in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, it is possible to enter the final boss battle cutscene with Paper Mode active. Mario will remain turned sideways for the remainder of the game as well as exhibit irregular behavior, such as walking away from Peach as she is lying on the floor after the battle.
While female Toads have been commonplace in Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, they have disappeared from the series entirely starting with Super Paper Mario, with the only hint that they could still exist being this quip from an angry Toad during a one-time event in Paper Mario: Color Splash. (Note that this isn’t conclusive evidence, as his wife could be something other than a Toad.)
