Part 4: The Secret of the Tournament of Battles

After the grueling battle between good and evil, Mario and Mallow were defeated by the mysterious ????, who had stolen the Star Rod Piece. After that, Mario and Mallow were left at the inn in Starlight Town. Later ????? wanted to take the Piece back from ????, but also lost and was slashed off to the direction that
Mario and Mallow were going. Soon, ????? turned out to be Blue, a Yoshi of the color blue, and taught Mario and Mallow that they could use their magic not only for battles, but for other stuff as well. After that, they defeated the Goompa Guy that was fused together by Goombas, Koopas, and Shy Guys. Not only did they defeat it, they found the stolen Star Rod Piece. Later, after meeting with Crago of the Tadpole Pond, they made it to Star Town, where Bowyer was causing havoc and trouble. Bowyer knew that Blue was actually Geno. After the battle of the hard Arrow Storm, Mario and Party retrieved the second Star Rod Piece and Geno officially joined the party. What will happen next in Mario's adventure?

Star Town...

Mario: Well, here's a key.

Mario goes to the locked inn and opens it.

Toad: I'm free!

Inn Keeper: You meen we're free.

Mayor: Thank you.

A few minutes later, in ??? Haven...

Well, you know Star Haven. Now ??? has transported it into ??? Haven.

???: Bwahahah! Now no one, and I meen NO ONE, can stop me!!!

Eldstar: Mario is going to be too late.

Back in Star Town...

Mario, Mallow, and Geno leave, not knowing that Bowser himself is there.

Bowser explodes...

Geno: I knew it! Bowser was a fake and was created to test us!

Mallow: But... by who?

Mario: Never mind tha-

Mario, Mallow, and Geno get transported to Crogo at Tadpole Pond.

Crogo: Very well done, boys. Now, I'm sorry that we had to stop short during our first conversation. Now, Bowyer was easy for you guys, right?

Mario Uh, yeah.

Crogo: Well, there is another place that you need to go. Star Town has the rest of the path that you need to go to. Now, though you are unaware of this, someone has token over Star Haven.

Geno: Oh no!

Mallow: Who is he?!

Crogo: That I don't know. But he is responsible for breaking the Star Rod into pieces. That is why you three were able to come here and find them.

Mario: So Goom and Lord Shy, they work for him?

Crogo: Ah yes. They work for him. They are the head of fusing, minions, and other stuff. Now go and find the rest!

Mario and the party transport back to Star Town.

Geno: Well, there's the pathway.

Mallow: Well, I think we should get on going.

Star Town leads to another path, right? Well, yes. Anyway, Mario, Mallow, and Geno take the path.

Battle Stardom 1...

Mario: So, this is the way?

Mallow: Wow!

Geno: This is way cool!

????: You!

Mario: You!

Mallow: You!

Geno: Who?

????: Me!

Geno: Oh. You!

????: What are you three doing here?

Mario: Uh...

????: HA! I'll be on my way back to the Haven.

???? transports to ??? Haven.

Mario: Well, where should we go?

Geno: Look, a sign!

Mallow: Yeah! Maybe that will tell us about this!

Mario and Mallow go over to the sign while Geno just stands there. The sign reads "Welcome to the 10th Tournament of the Battles! This year is a special year, this year's top prize is a thing with a part of a star which looks valuable and cool. Good luck."

Mallow: That's weird, it doesn't tell us where we are.

Geno: Of course!

Mallow and Mario return to Geno.

Mallow: What do you mean?

Geno: I mean, this is the place called Battle Stardom.

Mario: So, who do we get battle?

Geno: We have to sign up.

Mario: Kinda like Glitzville?

Mallow: Yeah.

Geno: Let's go!

Mario and Party go inside.

In ??? Haven...

???: So, what do you know?

????: Blue is really Geno.

???: Geno?! Give me a description of him.

????: Well, he's blue.

???: And...

????: He's like a doll.

???: Oh, him!

????: Yes.

Inside Battle Stardom...

Mario: Wow. This is like Glitzville.

Mallow: Uh, excuse me, but we would like to join this tournament.

Guard: Uh, sure, just go right through there.

Mario: Thanks.

*Knock Knock*

Nello: Come in!

Mario, Mallow, and Geno enter.

Mario: P-P-Punchnello!

Mallow: N-n-not you again!

Nello: No, it's not me.

Nello reveals himself to be Tubba Blubba.

Tubba: There we go.

Mario: Tubba Blubba? What are you doing here?

Tubba: Well, after I ran away from Gusty Gluch, I decided to be like my cousin Grubba. So, I made this here in the Starlight Kingdom. So, are you three here to sign up?

Mario: Yes. We three are all entering as a team.

Tubba: Ok then, I'm going to ask you guys to sign a contract.

Mallow: Easy enough.

Mallow signs.

Geno: I don't know, but I will too.

Geno signs also.

Mario: Wellll, ok then.

Mario signs.

Tubba: Ok then. Let me get my assistent, Jolene.

Mario: But-

Tubba: She decided to come here because ol' King K. decided he wanted to take charge of Glitzville.

Jolene: Hello, Mr. Tubba.

Tubba: Ah, Jolene! You remember Mario, don't you? Or, Mr. Gonzales.

Jolene: *gasp* Mr. Mario! Oh, and who else do we have here? Mallow and Geno?

Mallow and Geno: But how...?

Jolene: Mario told me about some of his past adventures.

Tubba: Well, I guess we should give it to them.

Mallow: Give what to us?

Tubba: Why, your locker room. Which is the Minor Room.

Geno: So Tubba Blubba, how many are in this tournament?

Tubba: 32.

Mario Let's-a go!

Tubba: Ok, Jolene, show them the stuff.

Jolene: Yes, Mr. Tubba. Right this way, boys.

Tubba: Wait!

Mario: What?

Tubba: I forgot about your name! Hmmmmm. Ah! Here we go, The Three Gonzales Pals. Now, get going.

Jolene and Mario leave, while Geno and Mallow look around.

Jolene: See here, Mr. Gonzales?

They get a view of the fighting match being held. Two competitors are fighting for practice.

Jolene: As you can see, the Champion is fighting someone else.

Mario: Champion?

Jolene: Yes, he has won nine tournaments held here.

Mario: Who is the Champion?

Jolene: Why, it is that guy right there called Roy.

Mario: You mean, Bowser's son?

Jolene: Yes. He has won all of the fights and tournaments. And there is that guy in the black cape.

Mario then sees ????.

Mario: Who is he?

Jolene: He is a Magikoopa called Black Koopa. Now, let's go to your locker room.

Mario: Hey, you two are already here?

Geno: Yeah, this place is cool.

Mallow: I'm liking this already!

Jolene: Come with me, Mr. Mario.

Mario: Wow.

Jolene: This is, of course, the Champion's room. You remember this from the Glitz Pit, right?

Mario: Yeah.

Jolene: Now, let's get back to your locker room.

Mario: Ok then, what can we do now?

Jolene: Oh yes, while you're waiting, you can go to the tournament locker room, where all the competitors chat, get stronger, and other stuff.

Geno: So, what do we do now?

Jolene: Well, it's already nighttime, so I think you three should go to your locker room.

Mallow: Ok then.

Mallow zooms back to the locker room.

Geno: Wait for me!

Geno follows Mallow.

Jolene: Mario...

Mario: Yeah?

Jolene: Please take this. It is very important.

*Jolene gives Mario an Extra Blocking!*

Mario: What is-a this?

Jolene: Since you have an Action Command, you need something a Blocking Command.

Mario: How does this work?

Jolene: It is the same as when you block an attack in a RPG battle, but you should figure it out.

Mario: Well, good night.

Jolene: Good night, Mario.

After the competitors leave and get back to their locker rooms and get to sleep, something happens...

????: Ha! I shall definitely win this and get the Star Rod Piece!

Jolene: Black?

Black Koopa: Huh?!

Jolene: You should be getting some sleep.

Black Koopa: Sleep THIS!

Black casts a spell that ties Jolene up, and throws her into his locker room.

Black Koopa: Now, neither she nor that Mario will not be able to stop me!!!

Meanwhile, that same night...

Tubba Blubba: Hmmm... I wonder where Jolene is. She was supposed to meet me here at 11.

Black Koopa: Oh, don't worry, she'll come.

Tubba: Black, is that you?

Black appears.

Black Koopa: You don't need her, do you?

Tubba: Welllllllll...

The next day...

Grubba: Welcome to the Tenth Annual Tournament of the Battles! This year's prize is... this star thing that fell only three days ago! So, let the Battles, begin!


Mario: Are you guys ready?

Mallow: Yep.

Geno: Yes.

Mario: So let's go and win!

Mallow: How do you know about the Gameboy Advance?

Tubba (onscreen): Hey there, boys, just want to tell you guys that it's time to start your next match! Your first fight is against The Fuzzers.

Mario: Isn't that The Fuzz?

Tubba: No, it's a new group of Fuzzies. They're hard to beat. So good luck. Jolene will be here to take you there.

Mallow: Doesn't a guard do that?

Tubba Blubba: No, Jolene is the only one. The guards only do that for the other opponents. So, Jolene will also give you an item. Meet you at the ring.

Jolene comes.

Jolene: Hello, boys. Here is the item that Mr. Tubba wanted to give you guys.

Mario: What is it?

Jolene give Mario and Party a Triple Mushroom Drink.

Geno: What does this do?

Jolene: You'll see when the time comes for the hard, the grueling, the tough, and the time when he comes.
