|~ The Dark Progonosticus|
The Dark Prognosticus, also known as the Book of Prophecies, is an evil book in the videogame Super Paper Mario, and it is one book that foretells doom and destruction through the user creating a lifeless, useless universal void.
It is unknown who wrote this book, however; certain events within the game give certain clues to believe the author is Dimentio. Count Bleck stole this book from his tribe, the Tribe of Darkness, in order to get revenge for his father cursing his beloved girlfriend Timpani. The Count wanted to use this book to destroy all worlds, for all worlds were meaningless without his dear love. Merely by reading the book, people can go through a total personality change; no matter how good they are, they will end up with evil intentions. Many have sought after this book, hoping to find eternal happiness and glory. Instead, the horrors within drove them all insane.
After Mario and Co. defeated Super Dimentio, the book "faded into history", never to be seen again by anyone else.
