Hold Fast is a special move used by Admiral Bobbery in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. This move is available from the start and requires 4 FP to use.


To use Hold Fast, the player must press A Button when the star lights up. This can be done up to three times. After the move is used, Bobbery will have the Payback status, allowing him to return damage to any foe that attacks him directly. This move can be useful against enemies or bosses that only attack physically but not so much against those with special attacks.
