Koopa Koot’s Favors – Paper Mario 64 Walkthrough

Fulfill the elderly Koopa’s quests to get your remaining Star Pieces in our Paper Mario Koopa Koot’s favors guide.

Head over to Koopa Village and enter the red-roofed house all the way to the far right of town. Inside you’ll find Koopa Koot who will task you with a number of favors. These usually involve retrieving an item from somewhere in the world and returning it to the decrepit Koopa for a reward.

Rewards are fairly straightforward. Each reward will always net you a single coin, but every so often you’ll receive a bonus reward. Every fourth reward will net you three Star Pieces while the Silver Credit and the Gold Credit can also be unlocked. These two items will unlock new games at the Playroom. There are 20 favors in total.

Follow our Paper Mario Koopa Koot favors guide a for a list of all 20 favors and their solutions. Each favor is listed in the order that they appear. Do take note, some will not be available until you complete specific chapters. For more guides on Paper Mario 64, check out our guide hub here.
