Magnus von Grapple
“You crying yet? Yeah? Sorry, but this thing isn't armed with tissues. Magnus von Grapple has the effect on people... Total, weeping terror.”
Magnus von Grapple is a robot operated by Lord Crump in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He is the boss of Boggly Woods. Magnus is fought after Mario and the Punies confront Crump at the entrance to the woods; he climbs into Magnus von Grapple and attacks them. His attacks include randomly stomping on top of Mario and his partners, firing his rocket punch, and stomping the ground to create an earthquake.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
In Mario's hunt for the Crystal Stars, the second star, the Emerald Star, is hidden in The Great Tree of Boggly Woods. The X-Nauts, led by Lord Crump, are already there searching for the star when Mario arrives. Crump allows Mario to find the Crystal Star, and then steals it from him after Mario discovers it at the bottom of the Tree with the help of the Punis. Mario confronts Crump, whom threatened to destroy the Tree with a time bomb. Mario pursues him to the tree's entrance, where he finds Crump being attacked by the Puni Elder. The Elder's attack forces Crump to deactivate the time bomb, but he refuses to hand the Emerald Star over. He instead activates Magnus von Grapple and attacks Mario and his party. Magnus fires its rocket punch at Mario, stomps on him, and even stomping ground to creates earthquakes, but Mario prevails over the robot and claims the Crystal Star. The X-Nauts scientist later build a new robot named Magnus von Grapple 2.0, which is much more powerful than its predecessor.
Power and abilities
Magnus von Grapple is able to fire both its rocket puncher off and use them as a weapon. When launched, the fists have a HP of two and an attack power of four. Magnus's main attack is to stomp on Mario and his friends, which does only two damage to them. Another of its attacks is to create an earthquake, two damage as well.
After the destruction of Magnus von Grapple, the X-Nauts PhD construct the improved version: Magnus von Grapple 2.0. This robot is much stronger than the first one and has attacks such as a Drill attack, a flying disk, and a Rapid Fire cannon, but Mario is able to defeat the upgraded robot as well.
