Mario & Luigi Partners in Time - Boxart

  • Princess Peach
  • Kylie Koopa


At one point in the game, Mario and Luigi, along with their baby selves, arrive at a coliseum in their quest to save Princess Peach. At the coliseum, they find a crowd of alien Shroobs gathered before their leader Princess Shroob. Princess Peach is then brought before the crowd, being held captive and gripped by a floating UFO-like device. She is dangled over a large pipe from which Petey Piranha emerges. The device releases Peach and Petey Piranha snatches her in the air, swallowing her whole.

Immediately afterwards, Kylie Koopa, an ally of Mario and Luigi, is captured by the Shroobs. The Mario bros. later make their way through an underground cavern where they find Kylie tied up and dangling over Petey Piranha. They are unable to do anything, however, as a Shroob cuts the rope and Kylie falls into Petey Piranha's mouth and is swallowed whole.

Mario and Luigi manage to track down Petey Piranha and beat him in combat, making him release Kylie. They do not find Peach though as Kylie explains that Petey apparently spit her out right after Kylie herself had been eaten.
