Exor, the mighty sword-ship.

“HALT! Who goes there!? A Trespasser! The castle now belongs to us. The Smithy Gang. This will be our first step in taking over the world. And if it wasn't for nosey characters like you, we'd practically own this world! Let's see you deal with this!”
Exor, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Exor is a giant sword-like character and a member of the Smithy Gang. Exor is actually composed of four parts: his Left Eye, his Right Eye, his Mouth (which is inexplicably translated Neosquid), and the skull-shaped pommel (named Exor) that controls the entire body. Exor is used as an inter-dimensional gateway between Mario's dimension, home of the Mushroom Kingdom, and Smithy's dimension, where Smithy's Factory is located. Consequently, Exor can transport an infinite number of troops and weapons for the Smithy Gang, as they are held in a separate dimension, not in an enclosed space.

The iconic and recurring image of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is Exor embedded in Bowser's Keep.

History[edit]

Exor was a vital component of Smithy's invasion of Mario World during the events of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Exor, on his descent to Bowser's Keep, shattered the Star Road, breaking off seven Star Pieces, thus eliminating the power of wishes from the world. Exor crashes into Bowser's Keep, sending Mario, Bowser, and Toadstool (who were battling in the castle) flying to other regions of the world. The keep is occupied by the Smithy Gang, and is used as Smithy's base of operations on Mario World.

The scene where Exor crashes into Bowser's Keep, seen in promotional artwork.

Mario returns to Bowser's Keep in an attempt to find Princess Toadstool. Instead, he finds a monstrously huge sword implanted in the castle. Exor claims the keep in the name of the Smithy Gang, and soon destroys the bridge linking Bowser's Keep to the rest of the world. Mario must find another way in.

Eventually, after collecting six Star Pieces, Mario returns to Bowser's Keep via a bus driver from Nimbus Land. After Mario defeats Boomer (on the chandeliers he fought Bowser on in the beginning of the game), Mario and his party are brought to the roof of the castle. Once there, Mario and his allies engage Exor. Although he wields impressive magical abilities, Exor is eventually defeated, but not destroyed. With his last ounce of strength, Exor opens his mouth, inhaling Mario and his party, transporting them to Smithy's dimension and his factory of weapons.

After Smithy is defeated, Exor dissolves into nothingness.

Karibā[1]
Probably from 刈 Kari, meaning cut. May also be a partial name-play off of the legendary sword "Excalibur".

Trivia[edit]

  • In a televison commercial promoting the American release of the game, this character was erroneously referred to as "Smithy the Sword", suggesting that he was the main antagonist of the game.
  • According to the Psychopath thoughts, Exor has astigmatism in his right eye and is blind in the left one.
  • Exor is the only Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars boss (aside from the Yaridovich clones) that is not immune to the special effect of the Geno Whirl attack (which does 9999 damage if executed correctly and defeats him in one turn).
  • Exor's name may refer to Excalibur, the sword from the story of King Arthur.
  • Although the face that holds the Neosquid, Right Eye, and Left Eye is actually Exor, due to the Neosquid moving at the beginning of the game, the in-battle calls the non-mouthed skeleton brain Exor.
