"My name's Olivia! You'd probably like to know a lot more about me and why I was trapped like that, huh?"
― Olivia, Paper Mario: The Origami King

Olivia (オリビアー lit. Olivia?) is the Template:W of Paper Mario: The Origami King. She is the sister of King Olly, although it was later revealed that he essentially created her. She is also the main companion to Mario.


Physical description

In her basic form, Olivia is a yellow origami figure wearing a yellow crown, yellow robe and brown shoes. She has brown eyes, fair skin and yellow hair. Olivia's traits include her folded crown and hair, her yellow robe, and her spiky, triangular limbs.

Powers and abilities

  • Origami Physiology: Olivia is an origami girl folded by her brother, King Olly. Olivia can transform into large origami creatures such as the Vellumental on certain Magic Circles. This can be done on the field or in battles.
    • Origami Manipulation: Olivia can fold herself into Vellumentals. Olivia can also fold other characters. As seen in the Origami Castle, Olivia transformed Bowser to origami to defeat King Olly. Olivia and Mario assisted Bowser to defeat Olly.


Princess Peach's Castle

In the castle dungeon, Mario freed Olivia from the sealed wall and she joined forces with Mario. Escaping the dungeon, Mario and Olivia found Bowser clinging on the peg and Olivia alarmed Mario about the Folded Soldiers. Mario freed Bowser from the peg and joined Mario and Olivia to escape the dungeon. Mario exited the dungeon and a yellow folded Shy Guy and Origami Peach. The yellow folded Shy Guy asked Mario if he wants to join their cause. Regardless of Mario's answer, it ordered the Folded Soldiers to fight Mario. Olivia cheered for Mario to defeat the Folded Soldiers. After defeating the Folded Soldiers, the yellow folded Shy Guy introduced himself as King Olly as it shocked Olivia. Olivia persuaded King Olly to stop. King Olly fulfilled his promise to create a new origami kingdom. A Shy Guy on a Koopa Clown Car came to Mario, Olivia and Bowser's aid and escaped the castle. However, Mario, Olivia, Bowser and the Shy Guy fell off the Koopa Clown Car into different locations.

Whispering Woods

After Mario and Olivia fell into Whispering Woods. Before Mario could reunite with Olivia, she warned Mario about the bottomless pit and gave him an Empty Confetti Bag. Mario filled the bottomless pit with confetti and freed Olivia who was stuck on the ground.

Origami Castle

Olivia travels with Mario on his journey, explaining the battle system and how to fill in Not-Bottomless Holes. Olivia was responsible for naming Bob-omb "Bobby", and enables Mario to use Magic Circles. Olivia is usually very cheerful, but when Bob-omb sacrifices himself to save her from a boulder in Sweetpaper Valley she becomes uncharacteristically sad. Olivia only cheers up when Mario uses a Goomba Mask to make a funny face, making her realize that Bob-omb wouldn't want her to be sad. She can also take on the appearances of the Vellumentals, and transforms into a giant hammer for Mario to use in the final fight with King Olly.

After the battle, Olivia fears she went too far with her hammer attack on King Olly, realizing that she mortally wounded her brother. She notices the mark on his body and reads it for him, telling him that it is a sweet message from the Origami Craftsman. King Olly regrets his villainy and makes a final request to Olivia to fold his remains into the final crane for the Thousand Cranes technique to amend his wrongdoings. Olivia is deeply upset as King Olly dies. With the help of the Origami Craftsman, Olivia finishes folding the final crane for the Thousand Cranes technique. Olivia wishes to undo all the origami Olly ever folded. This also erases her existence, since Olly was the one who first folded her. At the end of the game, Mario reminisces over Olivia while he and Peach watch fireworks.

In the game's 100% ending, a miniature, inanimate version of Olivia created by the Origami Craftsman appears in the scaled-down model of Origami Castle, alongside a similarly scaled down version of her brother, fulfilling the role their creator had originally intended for them.
