Full Name Crystal King
Species Unknown
First Appearance Paper Mario (2000)

“First I shall defeat you, and then I will present to King Bowser an iced Mario gift!”
Crystal King, Paper Mario

The Crystal King is the final boss in possession of a Star Spirit that Mario had to face before his final confrontation with Bowser in the game Paper Mario.

History[edit]

The Crystal King guarded the last Star Spirit, Kalmar, in the Crystal Palace. Crystal King's body is invisible and he can also make his cloak and crown invisible too. Crystal King can fly, summon Crystal Bits and shoot ice beams. When he gets desperate, he begins copying himself and recovering HP.

When Mario defeats him, Crystal King says, "Oh no! The last Star Spirit!! King Bowser, forgive meeeeeeeee!!". He then spins out of control and disappears while sparks are flying away from him.

Like the other characters, Crystal King appears in the parade at the end during the credits. Two Duplighosts are impersonating him, and the real Crystal King is carried away by his Crystal Bits.

Tattle
*King's Tattle: He's one of Bowser's main guys. I don't know how he managed to take over this palace, but... He'll attack you by summoning and launching Crystal Bits. The power of each attack is 4. The number of times he attacks equals the number of Crystal Bits he's deployed. He'll also try to freeze you whenever he can. When his HP is low, he may try to divide and conquer. The power of this attack is 8. You can hurt him only by attacking his real body. If you don't know which one's the main body, you should attack all of them. Pretty brilliant, eh?
  • Copy's Tattle: I think this is a deceptive duplicate of the Crystal King. Since it's just an illusion, all of your attacks will just go through it. Just a reminder, Mario... You must damage the real one.

Tattle
This is a Crystal Bit. Basically, Crystal Bits are just pieces of the Crystal King. You can drop 'em with ease. Their Max HP is 1 and they're only dangerous when the Crystal King spews 'em out. Their defense power is 0. These guys are pretty weak. They'll keep coming, though, until you've finally beaten the Crystal King.

Crystal King[edit]

The Crystal King is incredibly powerful. If not beaten quick enough, the Crystal King will recover 20 HP at least three times. He can attempt a freezing attack which freezes Mario and also deals six damage if not blocked. The Crystal King can split into multiple copies of himself in the air or on the ground. If Mario does not choose the correct copy on the next turn, the king will unleash a powerful mist attack which deals eight damage.

Crystal Bit[edit]

Crystal Bits are jewels that belong to the Crystal King. There are three different looking Crystal Bits (one shaped like a cube, one shaped like an octahedron and the last in the shape of a sphere) but their shape does not affect what they do compared to a different shaped crystal bit. They assist him in his battle with Mario during the events of Paper Mario. They can be destroyed quickly with a multi-hitting attack, like the multibounce, Lakilester's Spiny Surge, or Thunder Rage. Crystal King can summon them several times throughout battle, using up a turn.

Although they are easily defeated, it is more advantageous to leave them in the battle because when they are gone the Crystal King will shoot a bolt of ice at Mario, dealing 8 damage and possibly freezing him. If properly defended against, the barrage of Crystal Bits can do significantly less damage.

The Crystal King also makes an appearance in issue 27 of Super Mario-Kun. Before the fight, the Crystal King announces his presence using Ice Bolt by freezing Kooper. The Crystal King borrows his attacks from the original game such as hurling Crystal Bits and creating duplicates of himself. After an assortment of attacks, including Mario's using smelly clothing, Kooper uses a flaming shell to defeat the Crystal King.

Trivia[edit]

  • Although probably a coincidence, there is a treasure in the game Pikmin 2 called the Crystal King.
  • The Crystal Bits both resemble and serve a similar purpose as the Elemental Crystals do to Culex in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
  • Crystal Bits have lower HP than any other enemy in the game, along with Tuff Puffs and Petit Piranhas.
  • For reasons unknown, the sound effect for when the Crystal King clones himself is changed in the Virtual Console version. The original sound effect sounds similar to the effect when Mario grabs a Mini Mushroom. In the Virtual Console version, it is a similar sound effect to when the King generates his Crystal Bits.
