In the Mario & Luigi series, defense decreases the amount of damage that a character takes.

Paper Mario series

In Paper Mario and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, defense decreases the amount of damage taken from most attacks by the number of points in defense.

In this series, Mario's default defense is zero. Leveling up Mario does not increase his defense in any way. Mario can increase his defense by wearing a Defend Plus badge that raises his defense by one point.

Mario's partners have 0 defense except for Kooper, Parakarry, and Koops as they are all Koopa Troopas that always have a point of defense.

Using certain items such as Courage Shells also raise defense but only for a few or so turns. Certain abilities such as Sushie's Water Block] and Koops' Shell Shield also raises defense for Mario only.
