Clumphs are Beanish-like caveman enemies that appear in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. They appear within Joke's End and are only seen in battle, where they often show up alongside Glurps, Ice Snifits, and Scaratroopeas; in the remake, they do not appear with the latter if the Bros. are separated.
Clumphs attack by smashing the ground with their club, triggering a damaging yellow shockwave similar to Queen Bean's. They may also make a "burping" noise, charging up for a different shockwave attack that they use the next turn. This other attack has the Clumph flash partly before slamming its club down; a slower purple shockwave appears, dealing severe damage if not avoided. The flashing body part determines the purple shockwave's size. If the head flashes, the shockwave is medium-sized; if the body flashes, the shockwave is small; if the feet flash, the shockwave is very big. These shockwaves have a chance of tripping Mario and Luigi.
Clumphs appear to wear a toupee; if the Firebrand technique or the Fire Bros. Bros. Attack are used against them, the toupee sometimes burns, causing them to flee without awarding any Experience Points, coins, or item drops.
In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, Clumphs now take critical damage from any of Mario's Firebrand attacks. Clumphs also appear as enemies in Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser. They are Melee troopers, and they have high amounts of POW. Their special skill is Whomping Wallop, which causes them to strike the ground with their clubs, damaging all enemies on the ground behind the area where the club struck the ground.
