Dimentio is a magical jester and a major antagonist in the game Super Paper Mario. Initially a minion of Count Bleck, Dimentio is a powerful magician capable of several feats, such as teleportation, duplication, and invisibility. Like Mario, he has the power to flip between dimensions, and is in control of a dimension of his own, Dimension D. By the end of the game, he reveals his intentions to steal the Chaos Heart from Bleck and use it to destroy all worlds and create new ones of which he is king.
Powers and Abilities :
Dimentio, being a magician, is capable of many special abilities and powers. Being a master of Dimensions, Dimentio is able to flip between them like Mario. Dimentio can also create his own in which he controls such as Dimension D and give him additional power and support.
Dimentio can teleport and shoot a seemingly unlimited amount of energy spheres at his foes. He can also duplicate himself and deliver twice the amount of pain with his clone. This power also does not seem limited as Dimentio made hundreds of clones of himself in Castle Bleck in the final chapter. A method, which proved to be the most effective, is his killing magic. He is able to create a compact magic field around his victims in which he simply snaps his fingers, which causes several explosions within the field. Mario, Peach, Bowser, and Luigi were all nearly killed in this way.
Dimentio's lesser abilities, usually used by him for acquiring information, are hovering and being able to turn invisible. It is unknown if Dimentio had these powers prior to his servitude to Bleck, or if Bleck had granted him the powers as he had done with the other minions.
I am curently in the process of finishing it up, but there's too much info about him on mariowiki.com to fit in one post.
It is unknown where Dimentio is from or who he really is, but it's made apparent through the story that he was never truly loyal to Count Bleck. He sees being a minion of Bleck as the most convenient way to start his plans and joins him as a result to fulfill his own nefarious desires. Dimentio has shown to be very cunning and capable of initiating his own plans without the notice of Bleck or his other followers. Residing in the shadows of Count Bleck's army, Dimentio carefully plans and executes his scheme to take control of the Chaos Heart. In Count Bleck's service, Dimentio waits for Bleck to create the Chaos Heart and form the void. He plans to use its power and destructive purpose to wipe out all worlds and create brand new ones in which he controls. Dimentio plans to accomplish this by using the heroes of prophecy to collect the pure hearts and use them to destroy Count Bleck so that he will be able to claim the Chaos Heart for his own purposes.
Once Bleck forms the Chaos Heart, Dimentio patiently waits for the hero mentioned in the prophecy to appear. Dimentio is first shown at a meeting between Count Bleck and his other followers where he makes mild insults to some of the other minions. Eventually, Nastasia mentions the appearance of the possible hero, which sparks Dimentio's interest who decides to go with O'Chunks, who was sent by Bleck to take care of Mario, to see this hero. Dimentio watches and tests the abilities of Mario by sabotaging Fracktail, the robotic guardian of the second pure heart, and making it face Mario. Mario defeats the mechanical guardian, which ultimately leads to its' death, and acquires the second pure heart. This proved Mario's abilities to Dimentio who began to put his plans in order.
(Biography Continued: )
When Dimentio sees Mario as the hero, he moves his sights to Peach who was abducted and used in the birth of the Chaos Heart and is being held at Castle Bleck. Dimentio concludes that she will be the second hero and warps her from Castle Bleck to Flipside to join Mario. It seems that Dimentio did the same with Bowser, who woke up in the Bitlands with several of his minions, although it was never explicitly stated. Eventually, after Mario defeated O'Chucks and Mimi, Count Bleck calls upon Dimentio to dispose of Mario. This gave Dimentio an excuse to test Mario and his companion's potential. Dimentio does indeed face Mario and tests his abilities again at the Dot Wood Tree, but this time in Dimension D. Mario proves worthy, as Dimentio had expected, but believes that the heroes must be stronger when the battle with Bleck arrives.
Upon his return to Castle Bleck, Dimentio next gains knowledge that Luigi is the ideal host for the Chaos Heart's power and he will use it to spread darkness. After acquiring this knowledge, Dimentio makes use of his ability to turn invisible to spy on Bleck and Nastasia. He learns that Bleck has an emotional side and this could be used as a weakness to make it easier for the heroes to defeat him. While Luigi is in Nastasia's mind control and turned into "Mr. L," Dimentio keeps careful watch of his skills to see if he is worthy of being the one mentioned in the Dark Prognosticus as Bleck previously stated. Dimentio now is in need of a tool to control Luigi so that he can use him to posses the power of the Chaos Heart. He meets an associate, most likely King Croacus IV, in The Land of the Cragnons and acquires two Floro Sprouts, which are plants that are put on people's heads to be mind controlled.
Dimentio takes the opportunity to once again test Mario and his friends; this time using O'Chunks and, at the same time, test the Floro Sprouts to make sure they function properly for their future use. O'Chunks was once again sent by Count Bleck to defeat the heroes. He meets them in the Land of the Cragnons and is about to engage them in another fight when Dimentio interrupts him to test the heroes and the Floro Sprout. First Dimentio warps O'Chunks to Dimension D to test the heroes. Once they defeat him, a Floro Sprout that Dimentio planted on him puts him under mind control. Dimentio programmed the Floro Sprout to make O'Chunks faster and more unpredictable. O'Chunks is defeated again and this more than proves to Dimentio that Mario is indeed the chosen one and is almost ready to battle Bleck.
With the Floro Sprouts and a means of manipulating Luigi in his possesion, Dimentio next planned to join the fourth hero with the other three. He knew Luigi would be the fourth hero, so he needed to release him from Bleck's control and reunite him with the other heroes. He needed a time and place however where this deception wouldn't be discovered. He came up with the perfect plan to insure that Luigi would be reunited with the heroes and still keep his plans a secret. He coaxed Bleck's henchmen, including Luigi, to attack Mario in a world on the brink of destruction. The world, Sammer's Kingdom, was indeed obliterated by the void, but it remained in a withered state. This would be the perfect area to "murder" Luigi and send him to the Underwhere, a place where those whose games have ended are judged. This would release his mind control and also have him meet up with Mario as Dimentio planned to send him and the other two heroes to the same place.
The pure heart Mario acquired in this land was powerless from the destruction, but it could be repaired in the Underwhere. If Mario would be sent here, he would repair the pure heart and meet up with Luigi; killing two birds with one stone for Dimentio. Dimentio murders Luigi, who is sent to the Underwhere in the world of nothing and then quickly murders Mario, Peach, and Bowser in Merlon's house in Flipside. While it appeared that Dimentio ended all their games, he actually used his magic to temporarily kill them and send them to the Underwhere rather than actually ending their games for good. Mario was eventually able to repair the pure heart and meet up with Luigi and the other heroes and return from the Underwhere. Dimentio reported to Bleck that his henchman, Mr. L/Luigi, had betrayed them and joined the heroes in order to avoid any suspicions of deception.
As the heroes gathered the last pure heart, Dimentio began to put all final preperations in order. Before doing so, he told Bleck that Tippi had uttered Blumiere, which was Bleck's true name. This proved to Bleck that Timpani, the woman he loved, was truly alive. Dimentio did this to weaken Bleck emotionally and make it all the easier for the heroes to defeat him. During the course of the hero's journey through Castle Bleck, Dimentio created hundreds of clones and also manipulated the reflection of the castle mirrors to confuse the heroes as he shot energy spheres at them. Dimentio was merely feigning his efforts to stop the heroes in order to make sure that his deception is not revealed until the right moment.
When Mario and Luigi, Peach and Bowser are presumed dead, meet Dimentio in Castle Bleck he reveals his plans and intentions. Dimentio offers Mario and Luigi the opportunity of joining him to destroy Bleck. In actuality, Dimentio was planning on using two Floro Sprouts to mind control Mario and Luigi if they agreed so that his plans would unfold exactly as planned. While Dimentio explains how he's been "helping" the heroes the whole time, Tippi can still see the insanity behind Dimentio's nature. Mario and Luigi refuse to work with him, which makes Dimentio decide to go to another alternative. He insults Luigi and this leads to Luigi forcing Mario and Tippi to leave so that he can handle Dimentio by himself to prove his strength to the villain.
Luigi fights and beats him, but this was all a ruse to get Luigi in Dimentio's grasp. Dimentio appeared to commit a suicide attack, but he was actually planting a Floro Sprout in Luigi's unconsciousness. With this, Dimentio's plans were almost complete and in full fruition, all that was left was Bleck's defeat. Dimentio waited in the shadows during the battle between the four heroes and Bleck, ready to destroy his former master once and for all. Once Bleck was defeated and the pure hearts used up in the battle, Dimentio shot a burst of energy to finish him off. Nastasia stepped in front of Bleck to save him, absorbed the shot instead, and seemingly died. Mocking Nastasia for her sacrifice, Dimentio took control of Luigi through the Floro Sprout and took control of the Chaos Heart.
It is unknown what Dimentio's idea of a perfect world is, but he has clearly shown that he will go to great lengths to insure its creation. It has never been made clear if Dimentio wants a world without war as he only jokingly states that no one likes that kind of stuff when discussing the prospect of a new world with Bleck's minions. It can be just as equally assumed that Dimentio would crave a world made of war as he has clearly shown a very twisted personality and violent demeanor. Dimentio's lack of a motive or mind state makes him one of the more ambiguous villains in the Mario series.
Dimentio's allegiance is a major plot point in the game and is not revealed fully until the final chapter. Apparently, Dimentio approached Count Bleck on his own at first, offering to serve him. Bleck turned him down, however, for reasons that were never revealed. It was only after reading about him in the Dark Prognosticus that he allowed Dimentio into his forces. It is unknown what was written about Dimentio in the Dark Prognosticus, but Dimentio is apparently "the dark one" mentioned in the sinister book as opposed to Bleck. If Bleck read this in the Prognosticus, he might have intentionally enlisted Dimentio's help in order to ensure his successful suicide and destruction of the universe.
Dimentio is seen with O'Chunks, Mimi, and, a later minion, Mr. L at each of the meetings of Bleck's henchmen. Even before betraying the Count, he holds disdain for all of Bleck's other followers making his loyalty questionable at best. At meetings, Dimentio seems to be harboring deep hatred for Bleck and his followers, but is able to contain it with mild insults. While the other minions continuously give Bleck compliments and have some sort of bond with him, Dimentio barley speaks to Bleck. Dimentio only has a conversation with him if it furthers his own plans or if he can obtain valuable information. Dimentio seems to have a great amount of raw hatred at Bleck, which may contribute to his standoffish attitude toward him. It seems that Dimentio hates Bleck because the Count's only reason for his plans is for a fallen relationship, something Dimentio sees as a weakness.
Dimentio eventually turns on Bleck, and starts trying to thwart Bleck's plans and further his own. He casually begins to help Mario along, and even tries to convince the party to join him. Bleck wants to end all worlds in order to end his own life, whereas Dimentio wants to end all worlds in order to become king of a universe of his own creation. Their difference in motive is the reason Dimentio gives for betraying Count Bleck. However, it is also possible that Dimentio only joined Count Bleck and feigned allegiance to him in order to orchestrate his schemes, which he may have made even prior to his servitude to Bleck.
Ultimately, Dimentio despises Bleck and only serves him out of his own needs. Bleck and his minions are nothing but pawns to Dimentio and seeks to kill them all once their use has run out. By the end of the game, Dimentio traps Bleck in Dimension D to torture and kill him along with his lover, Tippi, and the rest of the minions, showing the true hatred that Dimentio has to his former "master".
Super Dimentio is a colossal clown puppet that serves as the final boss of Super Paper Mario. It was created through a fusion of Luigi, Dimentio and the Chaos Heart. Luigi was stated in the Dark Prognosticus as the ideal host for the Chaos Heart's power. After the giant puppet was created, Dimentio added his own power to the combination of Luigi and the Chaos Heart by having the clown eat him, forming Super Dimentio.
Super Dimentio was born shortly after Dimentio assumed control of the Chaos Heart, which he obtained following the defeat of Count Bleck. Super Dimentio harvested the power of the Chaos Heart, rendering him invincible to any of Mario's attacks and thus putting into motion the destruction of all worlds.
Meanwhile in Dimension D, where Dimentio had imprisoned Count Bleck, Tippi and Nastasia, Bleck and his minions expressed feelings of hope and love, restoring the Pure Hearts. The Pure Hearts were then used upon Super Dimentio to weaken the power of the Chaos Heart, nullifying his imperviousness. Super Dimentio was finally defeated in a magnificent explosion, releasing Luigi and the Chaos Heart from control and sending Dimentio to oblivion.
Well, I'm done gathering info now. Sorry I never left a pic I don't know how to do advanced stuff like that so you can't blame me. Sorry if I over did it with the posting, but this it my first Thread in a long time.
