Variant of Greaper

Glum Reapers are scythe-wielding Boo Guys found in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Glum Reapers resemble a cross between the Grim Reaper and a Boo Guy. Mario and his companions encounter Glum Reapers in the Weapon World. In battle, Glum Reapers are extremely versatile spellcasters with an arsenal of death-related attacks, including the auto-death causing attack Scythe. Fortunately, Glum Reapers have low defense and HP, so they can be taken out before they can cause major damage. Glum Reapers resemble an earlier enemy encountered in Mario's quest, the Greaper; however, Glum Reapers have lighter-colored robes and golden scythes, though their artwork depicts them as being the same aside from blue robes. It is unknown what connection Glum Reapers have with Smithy and may just be inhabitants of the Weapon World.

Driven by terror, they swing their Fear Sickles. When that escalates to a Reaper Sickle, then it's really overkill.

Make way for fear itself!
