“A consciousness bound to you, as you are to me.”
Chakron, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

Chakron is the third Star Sage, the guardian of the last Star Cure and the owner of the Chakroads in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. He resides atop a cliff near Plack Beach, where he has motionlessly meditated for a thousand years.

History[edit]

When Bowser first discovers the Chakroads, Chakron (albeit unseen) explains them to Bowser and grants him use of them. Later on in the game, when Mario and Luigi are searching for the Star Cures, they find Chakron atop his mountain. He explains that he has frozen in his meditative pose for a thousand years, gathering knowledge from the stars. He offers them the third Star Cure if they can use an attack that would shake the ground and break his pose. During his explanation, Luigi humorously tries to imitate his pose, but falls over. He then tries to tickle Chakron, to the annoyance of the latter.

At first, Mario and Luigi battle him. After three turns, Chakron sighs and disappointingly ends the match. He tells the Bros. that there is an attack in "the wood" that will free him of his pose. Mario and Luigi then collect Attack Pieces in Dimble Wood, learn Snack Basket and use it in a rematch against Chakron. When an Excellent is achieved using the attack, Chakron falls over.

Outside the battle, he voices his displeasure at being knocked onto his back, and rather than relinquishing the Star Cure, he crawls over to the edge of his platform and falls off the cliff. The Bros. and Starlow are surprised and horrified, but Chakron then drops down from the sky unharmed, and assumes a new hand-stand position for meditating. Satisfied with the change, he gives the Mario bros. the last Star Cure and offers to teleport the brothers back to Toad Town. Any time the bros. visit him from that point onward, he will offer them the same instant transport to Toad Town, which presumably works the same way as the Chakroads, although the action is taken off-screen at the secretive Chakron's behest.

Chakron's last appearance is at the ending of the game. After Peach's cake is shown, Chakron reveals in a voice-over that he monitored the player's progress and tells them their Ranks, either suggesting the player tries harder next time or congratulating them on getting the highest ranks.

Trivia[edit]

  • Chakron's star cure is the only one Mario and Luigi gain outside of Bowser's body.
  • With 9,999 HP and 999 POW, DEF and SPEED, Chakron is actually the strongest boss in the game and even the entire Mario series. However, Chakron does not attack and cannot be defeated, as his battle will end immediately when a perfect Snack Basket is performed. As such, the title of the game's strongest boss is awarded to Bowser X, and the boss with the most EXP is the Dark Star.
  • Other than Scutlet, Chakron is the only required boss Mario and Luigi face that does not reappear in The Gauntlet.
  • Chakron is the only boss that the player is allowed to flee from.
