Captain Toad

Captain Toad first appeared as the leader of the Toad Brigade in Super Mario Galaxy and Galaxy 2. Since then he has appeared in Super Mario 3D World, with a slight redesign and a unique set of levels. These levels involved guiding Captain Toad (who cannot jump) through puzzle dioramas, collecting stars along the way. This concept was later expanded on and Captain Toad got his very first game as a main character with Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

Blimp Yoshi

A pretty complex craft, Blimp Yoshi was one of Yoshi's new power ups introduced in Super Mario Galazy 2, along with Dash Yoshi and Bulb Yoshi. With a Blimp Fruit, Yoshi can propel himself and Mario into the air for a short amount of time.

Tips: Follow the template's numbers for the suggested build order. I highly recommend using Pepakura Viewer  to open the .pdo file, it will tell you exactly what part goes where.

Ball Bowser

A really simple, easy to build papercraft. It is Bowser, imagined as if its body was just a sphere. This is a similar concept to 'Cubee-Craft', a popular way of turning characters into very simple templates using a cube as a base. Bowser has appeared in most Mario games, usually as the main villain to beat. He has an affinity for kidnapping Princess Peach, but is always thwarted in the end.

They have a big role in the game from changing Yoshi's colour to being the focus of the boss battle against King Boo in Hotel Delfino. Build a coconut, durian, papaya, pineapple, red pepper and a bunch of bananas. If you want, you could always ignore the fact the models are from a Mario game, and build yourself a nice fruit bowl.

Super Mario 64 Chain Chomp

Chain Chomps made their first appearance in Super Mario Bros. 3, and have appeared in almost every Mario game since (And even some non-Mario games!)
