Paper Mario is a paper form of Mario, based on his appearances in the Paper Mario series, that came out of a magical book in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. Paper Mario is an independent character from Mario and interacts with him, Luigi, and various other characters from both the real world and the Paper world within the book in the game. He is the titular protagonist of the Paper Mario franchise.
Paper Mario looks similar to the original Mario, but more cartoony. However, Paper Mario can also change the color of his clothing in Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, by equipping the W Emblem or the L Emblem to look like Wario or Luigi or equipping both to look like Waluigi.
