Watt is one of Mario's partners that appears in the game Paper Mario. She is the sixth partner to join Mario's team and joins him in Shy Guy's Toy Box.


Watt was first seen where she was the source of light found in the lamp of the Big Lantern Ghost. She thanks Mario after he defeats the Lantern Ghost and joins the party, being the sixth member. She specializes in electrical attacks which ignore any forms of defense and spiked enemies. Despite her young age (note the pacifier), she punches well above her weight and age, proving to be an extremely valuable ally to Mario in many battles and boss battles. And for many players, Watt may be one of the most potent party members.


Watt's main ability is that she can illuminate dark areas while Mario is holding her. In addition to dark areas, Watt can also reveal hidden blocks that must be jumped under in order to make it visible.
