Proto:Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door/Text & Dialogue

From The Cutting Room Floor
Jump to: navigation, search
This is a sub-page of Proto:Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.

Although the dialogue is very similar to the final for the most part, there are still some very interesting differences. The early dialogue, in turn, gives some hints about where the game's localization was in development at this point.

Some text that can not be accessed in the demo, such as Trouble Center sidequests or end of chapter dialogue, has been translated. Despite this, the files still contain lines upon lines of untranslated Japanese text.

Star Crystal Fields, Hooktail Castle, and The Great Tree.

Tattles

Star Crystal Fields & Hooktail Castle Enemies

One of the hugest differences in the enemy tattles is that none of the text in the demo states their statistics.

Demo Final
btl_hlp_kuriboo
That's a Goomba.
Umm... Yeah, I'm one of those.
btl_hlp_kuriboo
That's a Goomba.

in case you hadn't noticed.

That's a Spiny Goomba.
...A spiky-headed Goomba.

Basically a winged Goomba.

That's a Paragoomba.
Basically a Goomba with
wings. I'm jealous!

Tattle for a Paragoomba.

btl_hlp_nokonoko
That's a Koopa Troopa.
They've been around forever!

Well, umm... It's basically

Tattle for a Koopa Paratroopa.

Demo Final
btl_hlp_chorobon
That's a Fuzzy.
What a hyper little guy, huh?
btl_hlp_chorobon
Those things suck up your HP
and use it to replenish their
own! Isn't that just the worst?
btl_hlp_chorobon
I mean, EW! Doesn't that just
sound gross?
btl_hlp_chorobon
The only way to stop them
from draining your HP is by
doing the Action Command...
btl_hlp_chorobon
That's a Fuzzy.
What a hyper little guy, huh?
Cut back on the caffeine!
btl_hlp_chorobon
Those things suck up your HP
and use it to replenish their
own! Isn't that just the worst?
btl_hlp_chorobon
I mean, EW! Doesn't that just
sound totally gross?
btl_hlp_chorobon
Anyway, guard against them
by pressing PM2Demo-AButton.png the
MOMENT they release you.

Tattle for a Fuzzy.

Demo Final
btl_hlp_honenoko
That's a Koopa Skeleton!
It was a Koopa Troopa...once.
btl_hlp_honenoko
Not only do these creeps
throw bones at you, but they
can clone themselves!
btl_hlp_honenoko
That's a Dull Bones.
Sort of a skeleton thing.
It was a Koopa Troopa...once.
btl_hlp_honenoko
These creeps throw bones to
attack. Oh, and they build
reinforcements, too!

Tattle for a Dull Bones.

Demo Final
btl_hlp_sinnosuke
That's a Bald Cleft.
Looks totally rugged, huh?
btl_hlp_sinnosuke
Their bods are super-hard,
but if you use a POW Block to
flip them over, they're done.
btl_hlp_sinnosuke
Oh, and it says here that
flames have no effect, so
don't bother using any.
btl_hlp_sinnosuke
That's a Bald Cleft.
Basically, a rock monster
with a swarthy-looking face.
btl_hlp_sinnosuke
Uh... This is kind of mean,
but bald guys...really just
don't do it for me.
btl_hlp_sinnosuke
Fire doesn't even hurt it.
It might be best to attack
with, say...a POW Block.

Tattle for a Bald Cleft.

Demo Final
btl_hlp_togedaruma
That's a Bristle.
Totally covered in spikes.
btl_hlp_togedaruma
Even trying to get close
enough to whack it with a
Hammer is dangerous!
btl_hlp_togedaruma
Seriously, its spikes will
pop out!
btl_hlp_togedaruma
So, since you can't jump on
it or use your Hammer, I guess
all that's left is items...
btl_hlp_togedaruma
That's a Bristle.
...Totally covered in spikes.
They're so prickly!
btl_hlp_togedaruma
Even trying to get close
enough to whack it with a
hammer is dangerous!
btl_hlp_togedaruma
Seriously, its spikes will
totally pop out!
btl_hlp_togedaruma
So, since you can't jump on
it or use your hammer...
you'd better use an item!

Tattle for a Bristle.

Demo Final
tl_hlp_gold_chorobon
That's a Gold Fuzzy.
Whoa, those are super-rare!
tl_hlp_gold_chorobon
Oh, but hey! Even though it's
a Fuzzy, it won't suck up your
HP, which is nice.
tl_hlp_gold_chorobon
It has a lot of HP, but its
attacks aren't very powerful.
Sorta wimpy, y'know?
tl_hlp_gold_chorobon
That's a Gold Fuzzy.
Whoa, those are super-rare!
I'm serious! Wow!
tl_hlp_gold_chorobon
Oh, but hey! Even though it's
a Fuzzy, it won't suck up your
HP, which is nice.
tl_hlp_gold_chorobon
I have to wonder though...
How does this thing hide?
Look at it! It's so gaudy!

Tattle for a Gold Fuzzy.

Demo Final

scene! It's crazy!

Tattle for the Fuzzy Horde.

Demo Final
btl_hlp_red_honenoko
That's a Red Koopa Skeleton!
Says here these are special.
btl_hlp_red_honenoko
If you knock their HP down
to zero, they crumble...but
they revive! Like zombies!
btl_hlp_red_honenoko
It's probably best to beat
the ordinary Koopa Skeletons
before going the red ones...
btl_hlp_red_honenoko
Hey, and remember, Koopa
Skeletons can create
reinforcements, so watch out!
btl_hlp_red_honenoko
That's a Red Bones!
A little TOO red, I think.
No fashion sense, y'know?
btl_hlp_red_honenoko
Unlike your average Dull
Bones, even if you pound it
to O HP and it crumbles...
btl_hlp_red_honenoko
It totally might revive!
Like a zombie!
btl_hlp_red_honenoko
My advice is to get rid of
all the Dull Bones, then
attack the Red Bones.
btl_hlp_red_honenoko
Oh, and one more thing! Once
its friends start to fall, it
may create some more!

Tattle for a Red Bones.

The Great Tree Enemies

Demo Final
btl_hlp_monochrome_pakkun
That's a Piranha Plant.
They're famous around here.
btl_hlp_monochrome_pakkun
Since they face up with open
mouths, they'll bite you if
you jump on them!
btl_hlp_monochrome_pakkun
Plus, they migrate from floor
to ceiling, so they're a real
pain in the tush.
btl_hlp_monochrome_pakkun
That's a Pale Piranha.
You know about these guys.
The famous Piranha Plants.
btl_hlp_monochrome_pakkun

If you try to jump on them,
they'll totally chomp on you.

It shoots things from its
mouth, so look alive and get
your defensive timing right.
btl_hlp_piders
That's a Pider.
ICK! They gross me out.
btl_hlp_piders
Besides its normal attacks,
it might spit three web-wads
at you consecutively.

Tattle for a Pider.

Demo Final
btl_hlp_gundan_zako
Boomer Ganger

btl_hlp_gundan_zako
They drink these weird
drinks to get all big and
burly and then freak out!
btl_hlp_gundan_zako
If there's two or more,
they're totally scary.
Finish them quickly!
btl_hlp_gundan_zako
That's an X-Naut.
Says here it's classified
as an "enemy combatant."
btl_hlp_gundan_zako
They drink these potions
that make them all big and
burly...then they attack!
btl_hlp_gundan_zako
One's easy, but if there's two
or more, better watch out!
Use special moves and items!

Tattle for an X-Naut Soldier.

Demo Final
btl_hlp_barriern
That's a Yux.
Weird shape, huh? ...Ugly.
btl_hlp_barriern
According to this, sometimes
attacks and items don't
affect them, so watch it.
btl_hlp_barriern
Until you beat any Mini-Yux
surrounding them, you won't
hurt them at all. Cheaters!
btl_hlp_barriern
They shoot two beam types
from their mouths, so study
them to plan your defense.
btl_hlp_barriern
That's a Yux.
Says here it's a creature
created in the X-Naut labs.
btl_hlp_barriern
According to this, attacks
and items won't affect it if
it has Mini-Yux around it.
btl_hlp_barriern
So, if any Mini-Yux appear,
take those out first. Duh!

Tattle for a Yux.

Demo Final
btl_hlp_barriern_petit
That's a Mini-Yux.
Each one can split into two.
btl_hlp_barriern_petit
These twerps are the reason
you sometimes can't do
damage to the main Yux.
btl_hlp_barriern_petit
I know the way they multiply
is a pain, but you have to
beat them before the Yux.
btl_hlp_barriern_petit
That's a Mini-Yux.
A creature made to protect
a Yux, it can split into two.
btl_hlp_barriern_petit
These twerps are the reason
you sometimes can't do any
damage to the main Yux.
btl_hlp_barriern_petit
They're a pain, but you HAVE
to beat them before the Yux.
Flurrie's pretty effective...

Tattle for a Mini-Yux.
