Crusher is the third special attack Bowser learns during the events of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Bowser apparently masters this earth-based technique because he is jealous of fellow party member Mallow and his ability to control the weather.[1] When used in battle, Bowser summons a jagged rock to shoot up from the ground, right beneath one enemy of the king's choice. This attack causes more damage if the player can press Y Button right before the rock emerges from the ground. Bowser learns this attack at level 15, and needs 12 Flower Points to use the ability. Crusher is the only special attack mastered by Bowser that targets one enemy.
