Vivian is a character from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door for the GameCube. Vivian was originally a member of the Shadow Sirens, an evil group of witches that consist of three siblings. Vivian is acquired as a partner by finding the Superbombomb she lost. She is the one who loses Flurrie's necklace which you must acquire to have Flurrie as a partner. Through the game, you could tell that Vivian didn't like the group, and later on in the game, got so mad that she joined Mario's party to fight evil, also facing her two sisters. At the end of the game, the Shadow Sirens mellowed out and lived in peace.

Personality and Appearance


Attacks, abilities and stats

In Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, she starts with 15 HP, which grows to 20 HP at Super Rank and 30 HP at Ultra Rank. She can have up to 4 attacks depending on her rank. These are:

  • Shade Fist - a fiery punch. This move is available initially and increases power with Rank up
  • Veil - Hides her and Mario in the shadow to avoid attacks. This move is available initially.
  • Fiery Jinx - A group attack that does fire damage, piercing their defense and burning them
  • Infatuate - Blows a kiss to all enemies to confuse them if effective

In the overworld, Vivian can hide Mario like Bow, by hiding him in the shadows. However, unlike Bow, she can let objects pass over her in this state in addition to avoiding enemy's line of sight.
