Sprite for Garf from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
Species Craw
First appearance Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (2004)

Garf the Craw is a member of Ishnail's Robbo Thieves and is the brother of Gus. At the beginning of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, he and his brother Gus are beaten up by two of Don Pianta's henchmen. After the first chapter, Garf puts up a trouble in the Trouble Center, asking for someone to find the House Key to his house. If Mario accepts the trouble and completes it, Garf will allow Mario to go into his house, but Garf will return to Ishnail's hideout soon after.


  • "That's Garf, part of the Robbo gang. I'm pretty sure he's related to Gus. He looks pretty gnarly, but he's actually pretty cool. Don't judge folks on looks!"
