The Manager is a member of the Smithy Gang and the second-weakest supervisor of the assembly lines in Smithy's Factory in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. He is the fourth-highest-ranking official of Smithy's management staff, above the Clerk, but under the Director, the Factory Chief, and Smithy himself. In battle, the Manager wields a large axe that resembles Blade. He is also guarded by three Pounders, small hammer-like enemies. Before he was defeated by Mario and his allies, he mentioned the creation of Mack 2 and Yaridovich 2, powered-up versions of the original bosses (but presumably, not mass-produced ones like the Machine Mades).
