|“||My name's Olivia! You'd probably like to know a lot more about me and why I was trapped like that, huh?||„|
|“||Oh, you guys! Thank you! With all of you by my side, I might actually be able to do this! LEMME AT HIM! I'm coming for you, Brother. And this time it won't be so easy to drop a giant boulder on me! Oh, by the way... How are we actually going to get to Peach's Castle, you guys?||„|
|~ Olivia determined to stop King Olly at all costs|
Olivia is the main ally of Paper Mario in Paper Mario: The Origami King and the younger sister of King Olly. She is a naive, outgoing, kind, and is easily capable of becoming friends with a variety of people, including Bowser's minions. She shares a similar role to that of Kersti from Sticker Star, and Huey from Color Splash.
Personality and Traits
Olivia has the mindset of a cheerful, yet naive child (presumably is one), who easily becomes amazed by new things. While King Olly has a strong hatred towards flat paper, something she doesn't understand, Olivia, on the other hand, firmly believes that origami and flat paper can co-exist peacefully. She often tends to become easily distracted when she notices something amazing. She is also very considerate to those she doesn't know as she was willing to hold on to Luigi's hat as a memento when he was thought to be dead during when the castle was moved to the volcano, stating that she misses him anyway.
Olivia is also shown to have a sensitive side, such as when Bobby sacrifices himself by exploding to save her from the boulder which Olly had trapped her, where she becomes extremely sad over his death. She also becomes devastated when she realized that she went too far as to fatally wound her brother in her hammer form. Despite this, she easily cheers up upon seeing a funny face, and is even willing to give up her own existence to restore the Mushroom Kingdom to its former glory, as part of King Olly's final request.
Before she came to be, King Olly was created as part of the Origami Castle, made for the Origami Festival. Olivia was originally designed by the Original Craftsman, but when King Olly backstabbed the Original Creator and traps him in his workshop wall, and proceeded to craft Olivia, as part of his plot to rule the Mushroom Kingdom with her ruling as queen alongside him, but Olivia was against this and tried to convince her brother that origami and flat paper can live together peacefully. Unfortunately, despite her best efforts, Olly punishes her by imprisoning her in the dungeon walls in Peach's Castle.
After Mario is dropped into the castle dungeon by Origami Princess Peach, he hears the voice of Olivia saying that she is trapped 'in-between dimensions'. Mario then proceeded to use the 1000 Folded Arms technique on the wall, which frees her. She introduces herself and joins him in their escape, and eventually meets up with Bowser, who was folded up and forced to watch his minions transform into Folded Soldiers and follow someone else other than him. They release him and they escape the dungeons. They soon encounter Origami Peach and a folded yellow Shy Guy, who orders their Folded Soldiers to attack them, but Mario defeats them. The yellow Shy Guy then transforms into none other than King Olly, much to Olivia's horror, since he was responsible behind those bizarre events. She tries to reason with her brother, but Olly doesn't oblige, and he reveals his plans of turning the world into his kingdom, and summons five colorful streamers to wrap up Peach's Castle and carry it to a distant volcano. Mario, Olivia, and Bowser barely managed to escape on the Koopa Clown Car, but one of the streamers slam into them, separating them and she and Mario land in the Whispering Woods below them.
Olivia spends most of her time accompanying Mario in his quest to find the ends of the five streamers, helping him eliminate each of the Legion of Stationery that guard them and destroying the streamers; she also teaches him about the Near-Bottomless Holes and how the battle system works. On their journey to destroy the blue streamer, they meet an amnesiac Bob-omb, whom Olivia calls Bobby during their ride to the Autumn Mountain and he joins them in the hopes of recovering his lost memory, but his own naivete causes Mario and Olivia much trouble whenever he tried to befriend a Paper Mache Soldier and often needs to be saved. After destroying the blue streamer, Bobby recalls everything that happened and they then travel to the Sweetpaper Valley where they encounter King Olly, who proceeds to trap Olivia under a huge boulder to hinder their progress and Mario and Bobby leave to search for something Bobby is certain could free her. After receiving a yellow box from The Princess Peach ship, they return to the valley, where Bobby reveals his backstory and use's his late-best friend's fuse, which was found in the box, to blow up the boulder, at the cost of his own life. Olivia was happy to have been freed for a while, but after realizing Bobby's fate and Mario turning his back towards her in grief, she rushes into the mines in tears and bemoaning how she would be able to continue without him and Mario was at a loss. After seeing Bobby's ghost, who suggested that a funny face could cheer her up, Mario uses a Goomba Mask which causes her to laugh and realize that they need to continue to ensure that he did not sacrifice himself in vain.
During their venture across the Great Sea in search of the underwater Diamond Island as part of their mission to destroy the purple steamer, They come across a mushroom house which is the home of the Original Craftsman. Upon arriving in the house's basement, Olivia surprises the Mario Bros. that she and her brother were created from the house. and with the help of Luigi, Mario frees the Original Craftsman who was responsible for the creation of King Olly, who turned on him and had him trapped in the first place, and tells the story of the events that would cause the current situation with the Folded Soldiers and the castle's relocation. This leaves Mario and Olivia wondering why King Olly had lashed out like that.
While having their mission to help Kamek and Bowser Jr. take back Bowser's Castle from the Folded Soldiers and save Bowser, Olivia is kidnapped by Handaconda when Mario took his eyes off her to reach into his pockets to show her the Castle Key, and eventually, Mario was ambushed by the same creature and battles to rescue Olivia and defeats it. After a battle with Scissors and annihilating the green streamer, Mario, Olivia, and all of Bowser's minions set their sights on Peach's Castle, which is no longer blocked off by the five streamers. She mistakes a Bob-omb and several other Bob-ombs for Bobby and becomes utterly baffled, until told otherwise.
Having finally arrived at their destination, Luigi (who had found several keys, but the one to Peach's Castle) joins them and they notice that the key was stuck in the exhaust pipe on Luigi's kart, which Bowser claimed was the reason why the kart was flying so slow. As they entered the castle, they are greeted by Origami Peach, this time, Luigi gets dropped into the dungeon and she insists that the rest of them follow her and her castle transforms into Origami Castle, which the group storms through. They are greeted by King Olly through several floors and sets up dangerous obstacles in their way, including Stapler, who was the reason Bowser could not unfold, which they defeat and Mario is able to return Bowser to his normal self. As they near the throne room, Olivia becomes discouraged over her brother sending Stapler to attack them and stricken with doubt if they'll defeat King Olly. She expresses gratitude to Mario, Bowser, and all of their allies that helped them along the way, while feeling guilty to have put them through so much danger. Bowser steps in and tells her that he is powerful and not afraid of Olly, but he had to put up with his spirited son, who leads his own army which was something he found challenging at times. This brings Olivia back up and vows to do her part when their time comes.
When they reach the throne room which is covered in 999 origami cranes, they confront Olly, who is sitting on his throne, with Princess Peach becoming one with the castle above him. He reveals his reasons for his actions that his creator, the Original Craftsman, had scribbled on his robe, which upset him so much that he viewed the Toads the same way. He intends to using the forbidden Thousand Cranes technique to make a wish to erase the existence of all the Toads, which horrifies the group; Olivia tries a couple more times to talk him out of it, but Olly wanted none of it and intends on using Mario as the 1,000 crane when he defeats him to accomplish his goals. After a long tenacious battle, with Olivia transforming into different Vellumentals and a hammer transformation given to her by the Original Craftsman, they finally defeat King Olly.
Olly lies on the floor with a horrified Olivia, who was sorrowful that she went too far as to have fatally wounded him. Olly requests that she reads the 'gibberish' on his robe and she read that his creator wanted him to be a kind and wise king. A remorseful Olly realized that it wasn't really a vandalizing scawl, he apologizes to Olivia and everyone for all the trouble he put them through and asks Olivia to fold him into a crane and they will grant any wish. After his death, Luigi arrives on his kart with Kamek, Bowser Jr., and the Original Craftsman, and the latter guides her in reshaping Olly's body into a crane. With that done, Olivia looks at Mario and the group and Princess Peach (who is still attached as a wall), she makes a wish to undo all the origami that was created by her brother. This wish reverses the damage and returning Peach's Castle to its original spot. However, because she was also one of the origami that was created by Olly, it also results in her own death.
If the game was cleared when the player reaches 100%, they unlock a special ending, there is a miniature version of Olivia and Olly placed on the origami castle by the Original Craftsman, which they fulfil their roles that their creator had intended them for.
Super Smash Bros.
Olivia appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as an spirit, first introduced in the "Paper Mario: The Origami King" event. She is an advanced-ranked support spirit who increases the user's air defence. Her spirit battle is against Pikachu, Mario and Bowser on the Paper Mario stage.
- Olivia is most likely the first and so far the only primary partner who is 100% comfirmed to have died and not brought back to life, as the fates of Tippi, and Huey are subject to debate. Kersti on the other hand is revived after she sacrificed herself.
