Dyna- The now adult mole joins mario to save the world. She has the ability to dig holes when a treasure is near.
Doopliss- THis Doopliss is not the one from marios world but rather from an alternate reality in which the bad guys are kind. he has the ability to copy enemy abilities.
Bowser- bowser joins in late in the game. He doesent have any special abilities except breathing fire.
Toadalina- A gardener who is robbed by a member of Noir. this convinces her to Join mario
