Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

In this game, Corporal Paraplonk is first seen where he notices Bowser wandering around in the woods. Bowser tells Corporal Paraplonk and the others that he is looking for a Banzai Bill to help knock Fawful away from his recently, taken-over castle. Corporal Paraplonk said that one may be deeper in the woods somewhere and Bowser goes out to search. Bowser eventually returns with one and uses Sergeant Guy's cannon to launch the Banzai Bill at Fawful's castle. However, the castle then starts to fly and it crushes Bowser. However, Bowser suddenly grows giant surprising Corporal Paraplonk. During the first giant battle, Corporal Paraplonk teaches the player how to fight as a giant and coaches Bowser throughout the fight telling him when to attack and counterattack. After the battle, Bowser heads into his castle leaving Corporal Paraplonk and the others outside. Corporal Paraplonk and the rest isn't seen again until when Bowser is searching for a Star Cure hidden deep in his castle. They eventually find it but have some delays due to a Fawful Express and Bowser losing his memory. After Bowser opens the safe to get the Star Cure, Corporal Paraplonk, along with Private Goomp and Sergeant Guy, push Bowser into the safe and locks him in. Corporal Paraplonk is excited that they will receive praise from Fawful. However, after Fawful is defeated, Corporal Paraplonk and the others beg for Bowser's forgiveness. Bowser does so by letting them help fix up his castle.

Corporal Paraplonk, Private Goomp, and Sergeant Guy all fight Mario but they are defeated due to Private Goomp accidentally revealing their weakness. Corporal Paraplonk and the others were then demoted by Kamek to sub down Neo Bowser Castle.
