Badge List and Locations – Paper Mario 64 Walkthrough

Badges are essential to perfecting your playstyle and we have all 80 badge locations listed in our Paper Mario 64 walkthrough and guide.

As you play through Paper Mario on the Nintendo 64, you’ll across badges that you can equip on your character. These special medals add or remove effects to the battle and Mario’s mechanics. Some badges give extra power and alter stats while a many other badges provide new moves and abilities. Some badges even provide bonuses outside of battle.

Equipping badges to your character will require the use of BP. This special stat stands for Badge Points and each badge requires an exact amount to be activated. BP is not permanently spent and points will return once you deactivate a badge. Mario starts his adventure with a whopping 3 BP but can earn additional BP by selecting the BP option when you collect 100 Star Points in battles and level up. You can have a max total of 30 BP.

For our Paper Mario badges guide, we have each badge listed out by its type. If you look at your badges in-game, we use the same list order!
