Gunyolk is a large mechanical monster created by the Factory Chief and appears in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Gunyolk and the Factory Chief are the last enemies that are encountered before Smithy. It resembles a heavily armored combination of a locomotive and a tank with a large vat of molten metal in the back.
Gunyolk uses the Breaker Beam every 2nd turn, which was previously used by the Axem Rangers; unlike them, however, Gunyolk does not need recharge after using it. On odd-numbered turns, Gunyolk chooses from a pair of attack pools. The first has a 33% chance of using Echofinder, which hits one character for 1.5x the damage of its normal attack and inflicts Mute, and uses a normal attack otherwise; the second pool has a 66% chance of using the Fire-attribute Fire Saber to inflict moderate magic damage, and a 33% chance of using the Thunder-attribute Electroshock, which can inflict even more magic damage.
Gunyolk has no resistance to status ailments. Gunyolk is additionally weak to Ice and Thunder.

|Smithy didn't even make this. A mere Factory Chief was the one who invented it. In that light, does it still qualify as a monster?|
