Cudge is found in the Land of the Cragnons at the Gap of Crag, after obtaining the three tablets of Water, Fire, and Earth. Mario travels through World 5-2 around the mountains, and finds Cudge, after the three tablets are put into place, at the peak of the tallest mountain in the land.
After saved by Mario and his friends, Cudge joins his party. While in tow, Cudge can be used by Mario or his party as a hammer attack, similar to that of other Paper Mario games. The hammer attack is stronger than Mario's regular attack, and can be used to break certain blocks or obstacles.
