Clumphs are a primitive species of enemies with rat-like facial features, dressed in caveman garb. They only appear in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, and they only appear in battle alongside Glurps, Ice Snifits, and Scaratroopeas within Joke's End. They are highly territorial, and attack any intruders with their massive clubs on sight.

They have three different attacks; the first attack consists of smashing the ground with their club, triggering a quick yellow shockwave that deals small damage. The second "attack" is a burp that charges up for the third technique, which is actually a variant of the first one: a slow purple shockwave appears, dealing severe damage if not avoided. Before unleashing the third attack, a part of the Clumph's body will flash yellow, and the flashing part will determine the purple shockwave's size. If the head flashes, the shockwave will be medium-sized; if the body flashes, the shockwave will be small; if the feet flash, the shockwave will be very big.

Although a Clumph is not weak against the Firebrand technique, they may run away from battle if their hair (or wig) is set on fire.

The Protobatter and Pwallops from Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story have similar attacks to Clumphs.
