6) Don Pianta

First Appearance: Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (GameCube, 2004)

The mob is probably the last thing someone would expect to see in a Mario game, but Don Pianta, head of the Pianta Syndicate, brought a touch of the underworld to the plumber’s life. Known as the Don of Untimely Death, the Don ruled West Rogueport with an iron fist and a heart of gold. A self-proclaimed man who can “make cryin’ babies weep,” the Don had no fear speaking his mind; there aren’t many people who can claim to have called Princess Peach a dame, after all! There’s also something to be said of a man who can pull off wearing a grass skirt with half a suit and a fedora. Don Pianta’s rough exterior belied an overly devoted father, though, and added another layer to this mobster archetype. The odd pairing of tough guys and toadstools resulted in some bizarre, yet humorous, moments that are truly memorable.

    I was about to complain that Geno wasn’t number one, and then I saw Fawful and realized that, yes, Geno is not as awesome as Fawful. He had Fury! And as he would like to remind you:

    “But…the day comes soon when Fawful rises again, and then no baby’s candy has safety! I am counting chickens before they are even eggs, before the chickens are even chickens!

    I miss Jr. Troopa. He had a very brief cameo in TTYD, though. I miss Paper Mario in general. Like… REAL Paper Mario type stuff. I was a big fan of Super Paper Mario, and was glad to see the change in gameplay. I expected Sticker Star to be like the first two games, but it really wasn’t. Not to say that Sticker Star wasn’t a great game in its own right, but I want another Paper Mario with a long story, crazy partners and action commands, and a seamless world.
