Paper Mario: The Origami King is a Paper Mario fan-fiction written by TiniTurtle , with accompanying sheet music composed by Andrew Dickman . Set 3 years after Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Paper Mario: Color Splash , the story begins with Princess Peach inviting Paper Mario to her castle for cake, which unfortunately is Paper Mario’s 100 th birthday, and Peach announces Paper Mario’s retirement.
After Paper Mario has a series of nightmares with people he met in Paper Mario: Sticker Star , the next morning Paper Mario wakes up to find 6 life-size origami figures made out of his early birthday presents delivered to him by Princess Peach. Before Paper Mario can talk to Peach about his retirement, Paper Mario’s arch-nemesis Bowser kidnaps Princess Peach and Paper Mario goes off to save her. Paper Mario soon learns that Bowser is forcing Paper Princess (who was Paper Luigi in disguise) kidnap the 7 Star Spirits (not knowing they’re fake). After rescuing all the Star Spirits from being kidnapped Paper Mario and Paper Princess go to Bowser’s Castle. Paper Mario defeats Bowser with the help of Paper Peach (who was Paper Daisy in disguise) and Paper Toadette comes out of nowhere and kills Paper Princess so she can be Paper Peach’s best friend, then Paper Mario defeats Paper Toadette, who turns into a piece of paper that blows away in the wind. Paper Princess gets Paper Mario’s attention and Paper Peach kisses Paper Princess, making Paper Luigi appear (he was Paper Toadette in disguise) and start kissing Paper Queen (who was really Paper Daisy). After Paper Princess explains why she acted like a jerk to our heroes, both Paper Mario and Paper Princess go back to their own worlds.
