Getting Started


There are a number of glitches, tricks and sequence breaks that can significantly shorten the amount of time needed to progress through the game. Paper Mario TTYD is a heavily exploitable game so the following list is only a selection of possible exploits most often used in speedruns.

Alternatively, videos of a large number of glitches, exploits and many other things are featured on [Here (soon)].


Sequence Breaks

  • Blooper Skip: Allows the player to skip the Blooper Fight and the First Thousand-Year Door Cutscene.


  • Sort Glitch: Allows for the infinite use of HP/FP Items on the JP version


(These rules apply to all Paper Mario TTYD speedrun categories. Each category also has its own set of rules in addition to the ones listed here.)

The Following is Not Allowed

  • Emulators, MIOS modifications, and any of the Action Replay discs
  • All homebrew apps and/or special loaders (Dolphin, Dios Mios, Devolution, Swiss, etc.) even if the official game disc is being booted through them.
  • Turbo controllers
  • The use of a backup disc
  • Any cheat codes or game modifications
