Cleftor, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Cleftor is a Hyper Bald Cleft who fights in the Glitz Pit in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. He is a member of the Punk Rocks, also known as the "Green Torture Squad," in the minor league division. Initially, Cleftor shows little respect for Mario. After Mario defeats him, Cleftor begins to respect the mustached warrior. Also, according to Goombella, he is a nice guy at heart, but dislikes Mario's mustache. Cleftor appears to like King K, as Master Crash claimed to have found him crying in a locker when King K vanished despite Cleftor's denial.

Log A hyperactive Bald Cleft that can charge up energy, boosting its Attack to eight.
Tattle That's a Hyper Bald Cleft. Like Clefts and Bald Clefts, this is also a rock monster. Max HP is 3, Attack is 2, and Defense is 2. This hyper version can build up its energy, boosting its Attack to 8 on the next turn. It has low HP, but its body is rock-hard and impervious to fire, making it super-tough. It says here that item attacks are pretty effective. Beat it before it goes hyper!

Field Tattle[edit]

  • "That's Cleftor. He might sound a bit gruff... But I think he's actually nicer than he sounds, y'know? Maybe he's just a little shy."


  • "Grack! No closer."
  • "Grack! Stache must work out."
