“Master of dimensions... Pleaser of crowds... I am... Dimentio!” —Dimentio, Super Paper Mario
Dimentio is one of Count Bleck's evil henchmen and the true main antagonist in Super Paper Mario. He has the ability to create different dimensions, flip between them, and make the area around him very warped and strange, as well as being able to create mirror images of himself. He later betrays Count Bleck (which he was planning all the way from the start) and becomes Super Paper Mario's ultimate boss. He is very smart and always acting from the other side of the curtain without Count Bleck knowing, and has a tendency to use similes when describing things, like his arrival. Dimentio is actually using Count Bleck to take over everything. According to his catch card, he is a mercenary.
Role in the StoryEdit
Dimentio joined Count Bleck because he thought the count would create a new world, but when he found out that he wanted to destroy it, not remake it, he turned traitorous, and decided to make himself master of the Chaos Heart by attempting to fulfill both Light and Dark Prognosticus. He decided to test the hero's strength by setting a corrupted Fracktail on Mario, which was defeated thanks to Thoreau's help. Then, when he found Princess Peach about to be hypnotized by Nastasia, he teleported her away to near the first Heart Pillar, where Mario would revive her with Spicy Soup and have her join the party. But when Luigi was captured, he did nothing. Later in the story, he sent Mr. L, which was really a brainwashed Luigi, to the Underwhere so that he can meet up with Mario.
Additionally it appears that Dimentio knows Tippi, since every time you encounter him there is a reason why you cannot use her scan on him. This makes it seem that Dimentio doesn't want Tippi to remember and/or recognize him.
At the Dotwood Tree, Dimentio decided to challenge the heroes himself in Dimension D, and failed miserably. He then intercepted Mario and Co. at the Gap of Crag, near the Yoshi Statue, where O'Chunks was about to set loose on them. He decided to aid by transporting them to Dimension D. Later, as a next test, Dimentio requested for Floro Sprouts from the Floro Sapiens, implanting one into O'Chunks, which he then set loose on Mario in the Cragnon Processing Plant in the Floro Caverns, calling him O'Cabbage. When they left, Dimentio quoted that they had grown much stronger than his last encounter with the heroes.
After that, he led Mimi and Mr. L to attack Mario in the Sammer Kingdom. Mimi was able to successfully stall Mario and Co. from making it to King Sammer, causing the world to be destroyed. Mr. L, and his newly improved Brobot L-Type, fought Mario in the destroyed world, and failed, dropping the petrified Pure Heart. Dimentio then had Mr. L sent to the Underwhere, turning him back into Luigi.
After Mario and Co. arrived back at Merlon's house with the Pure Heart, Dimentio dropped in and sent the heroes to the Underwhere, without Pixls. Mario met up with Luigi there, made it back to Flipside, reunited with Pixls and heroes, and got the final Pure Heart to open up the passage to Castle Bleck.
In a deep area within Castle Bleck, Dimentio made the Mario Bros. chase him through several worlds, including the destroyed 6th world. After the wild goose chase was over, Dimentio explained the entire plot to the brothers, prompting revenge for Luigi. Luigi and Dimentio then fought, and when Luigi seemed to be the winner, Dimentio trapped both himself and the former Mr. L into a trap box, seemingly killing both of them. But when the Purity Heart formed and destroyed the Chaos Shield on Count Bleck, the heroes all reunited and defeated him. But at the end, Dimentio appeared and shot an energy blast at Bleck, or Blumiere, Nastasia blocked it, and she had seemed to have been killed. He then reveals that Luigi is Mr. L and the host of the Chaos Heart. Dimentio then took the Chaos Heart and sprouted the Floro Sprout inside Luigi's head, and fused himself, the Chaos Heart, and Luigi into a demonic entity called Super Dimentio, which had an invincibility spell on it. But when Blumiere, Tippi/Timpani, and Bleck's top henchmen fused their courage, it recharged the exhausted Pure Hearts, which weakened Super Dimentio's barrier, allowing Mario, Peach and Bowser to defeat him. But when Dimentio was about to die, he used what was left of his power to release Luigi, accidentally explode and die, and leave a shadow of himself to perserve the Chaos Heart until the Universe was destroyed. But thanks to Timpani and Blumiere's sacrifice, the Chaos Heart was destroyed and the Void dissolved.
- Like Fawful from the Mario and Luigi series, Dimentio always smiles, except for when you beat him in a battle or when you jump on him (in which case he frowns).
- Dimentio will always battle you in Dimension D and no where else, except at the very end of the game where he fights Luigi in a normal state.
- Mind you, you only fight him twice.
- It is hinted by Carson in Super Paper Mario that Dimentio possibly wrote the Dark Prognosticus. It is hinted by Carson that Dimentio went on his own to befriend Count Bleck. Count Bleck refuses him at first, but then reads more of the Dark Prognosticus, and finding out that Dimentio is "The Dark One", changes his mind.
- Carson says "But it is rumored that his son recovered from the accident, Perhaps his blood still draws today...", or something similar. This is a hint that Dimentio is related to the magician who made the Pixls 3,000 years ago.
- Dimentio is the only boss who cannot be tattled, since Tippi is never with you when you fight him.
- In Chapter 8-3, Dimentio asks Mario and Luigi to join him. If you say "Yes" repeatedly, it results in a Game Over.
