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).
