"I just lost EVERYTHING."
“Any dissent against Smithy will be dealt with by immediate melt down.”
Director, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

The Director is a high-ranking member of the Smithy Gang and the second-strongest supervisor of the assembly lines of Smithy's Factory in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. He is the third-highest-ranking official on the management staff: above the Clerk and the Manager, but below the Factory Chief and Smithy himself. During battle, the Director wields a large axe that resembles the Blade. He is also protected by four Poundettes, the strongest version of the Mad Mallet enemy.

In Super Mario-kun (volume 51, chapter 14), the Director is the only one met in the Factory. He kindly presents himself to the heroes and offers them some drinks: trusting him, Mario, Bowser, Peach, and Mallow accept the drink, only to be revealed that it has been spiked with poison, but Mario is strangely unaffected by it. Right then, Smithy appears, and the Director exits from the scene, never to be seen again. Later, when Geno finally returns to the party, he is ready to help Mario in the final fight, but having run until then, he drinks the spiked drink and is knocked down as well, much to Mario's annoyance. In the manga, the Director's body is not seen (the feet and arms are directly connected to the head) and two big eyes are shown behind the helmet.

Luckily, I was able to shift into a director role at an industry-leading firm at this critical time with my son's exams. Now I'll work with the union on labor reform.
Thought Peek
The union, my son's exams, career changes... I've seen a lot during my time.
