- —Count Down, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Count Down is a large clock-like being and a high-ranking member of the Smithy Gang.
Mario and his allies Mallow, Geno, Bowser, and Toadstool first encounter Count Down while navigating their way through Smithy's Factory during Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Count Down is one of Smithy's commanders and attacks the Mario gang with its allies, the Ding-A-Lings.
If Count Down is defeated first before any of the Ding-A-Lings, its hands will spin for the rest of the battle, which results in no Coins being awarded after the battle.
During battle, it seems Count Down is nothing more than a puppet used by the Ding-A-Lings, as Count Down attacks in a continuous cycle, with the attack depending on what numbers the hands on its clock face are on. The order is shown below; however, when a Ding-A-Ling chants "Time is marching on!" Count Down skips to the next hour.
