Not to be confused with Greap
A Greaper is a ghost-like creature from the game Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. They appear in the Sunken Ship. These hooded ghouls resemble a cross between a Shy Guy and the Grim Reaper, hence their name. Greapers are related to the powerful Glum Reapers. One friendly Greaper is a member of the Three Musty Fears from Monstro Town. One specific Greaper also showed the ability to take the appearance of Mario, reflecting almost everything of the plumber's movements.

- Nintendo Power forgot to list Greaper's stats in the Super Mario RPG Official Player's Guide. The reason they gave was that Greaper wasn't an enemy, even though this is false.
