Full name Crystal King
Species Unknown
First appearance Paper Mario (2000)

“First I shall defeat you, and then I will present to King Bowser an iced Mario gift!”
Crystal King, Paper Mario

The Crystal King is the final boss in possession of a Star Spirit that Mario had to face before his final confrontation with Bowser in the game Paper Mario.

Nature and Abilities[edit]

The Crystal King is invisible, save for his robe, crown and floating yellow eyes. He can disappear and reappear altogether in a flurry of snowflakes.

The Crystal King is exceptionally powerful. He can levitate, summon Crystal Bits to use as ammunition and shoot freezing beams. In desperation, the King can make fake clones of himself and recover his HP; if not beaten quickly enough, the Crystal King will recover 20 HP at least three times, and he and his army of illusory copies will unleash a powerful blizzard attack. There is no way to tell the Crystal King apart from his clones, leaving Mario to guess or use an attack that hits all enemies.

Plot[edit]

The Crystal King guards the last Star Spirit, Kalmar, in the Crystal Palace.

When Mario defeats him, Crystal King says, "Oh no! The last Star Spirit!! King Bowser, forgive meeeeeeeee!!" before spinning and disappearing in a flurry of sparks.

Like the other bosses, Crystal King appears in the parade at the end during the credits. Two Duplighosts are impersonating him. The real Crystal King removes their disguises, but is carried away by his Crystal Bits, seemingly to his surprise and against his will.

Super Mario-Kun[edit]

The Crystal King also makes an appearance in volume 27 of Super Mario-Kun. Before the fight, the Crystal King announces his presence using Ice Bolt by freezing Kooper. The Crystal King borrows his attacks from the original game such as hurling Crystal Bits and creating duplicates of himself. After an assortment of attacks, including Mario's using smelly clothing, Kooper uses a flaming shell to defeat the Crystal King.

Tattle This is the Crystal King. He's one of Bowser's main guys. I don't know how he managed to take over this palace, but... Max HP: 70, Attack Power: 6, Defense Power: 2 He'll attack you by summoning and launching Crystal Bits. The power of each attack is 4. The number of times he attacks equals the number of Crystal Bits he's deployed. He'll also try to freeze you whenever he can. When his HP gets low, he may try to divide and conquer. The power of this attack is 8. You can hurt him only by attacking his real body. If you don't know which one's the main body, you should attack all of them. Pretty brilliant, eh?

Tattle This is a Crystal Bit. Basically, Crystal Bits are just pieces of the Crystal King. You can drop 'em with ease. Their Max HP is 1 and they're only dangerous when the Crystal King spews 'em out. Their defense power is 0. These guys are pretty weak. They'll keep coming, though, until you've finally beaten the Crystal King.

Tattle I think this is a deceptive duplicate of the Crystal King. Since it's just an illusion, all of your attacks will just go through it. Max HP: 70, Attack Power: 5, Defense Power: 0 Just a reminder, Mario... You must damage the real one.
