Sushie is Mario's seventh party member in Paper Mario. She is a Cheep Cheep resided in Yoshi's Village on Lavalava Island.

Her pause menu description states that she "loves romantic stories and cries at the drop of a fin", implying that she is very sensitive and soft-hearted. However, according to the Yoshi children, she is very bossy. Her name is based on the famous Japanese dish.


Paper Mario

At Lavalava Island, Mario enters Yoshi's Village and finds that five Yoshi children are missing. Their babysitter, a Cheep Cheep named Sushie, asks Mario to help her find them. When they find the 5 Yoshis, Mario tells Sushie about his quest. Sushie says it's a very romantic story and joins the party. During the fight with Lava Piranha, Sushie's water attacks are quite helpful.

After Mario reaches a dock, he can ride on her back on the surface of water and dive underneath if he chooses.

Sushie has a daughter named Sashimie. During the game, Sashimie sends her mother a letter, stating that she is going to have a baby, meaning Sushie will soon be a grandmother. There is another letter to Sushie from Raphael the Raven at the Post Office.
