"This is the pits!"

Jabits are small, bespectacled, green and gray drill bit creatures and members of the Smithy Gang. They appear in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Their name is a portmanteau of jab and bit, short for drill bit, and may have been intentionally set up similar to Snifits'.

Jabits (along with Ninjas) are the security of Smithy Gang and are usually wandering around Smithy's Factory. Jabits are apparently easy to make in large numbers because their usual plan of attack is self-destructing. They are often accompanied in battle by Mad Mallets and Poundettes. Also, in the assembly-line section of the factory, Mario can observe the process of Jabits being manufactured.

Drill Bit, a unique red Jabit who was newly created at the time of Mario's arrival, appears once to try to talk some sense into Smithy, alongside a Shyster and an Aero. Drill Bit was also an unused enemy, with battle data for one to four Drill Bits, suggesting it was going to be an enemy group variant. is In addition, four Machine Made versions of these types of enemies appear when the Yaridovich copies use a move called Multiplier!, suggesting they may have additionally had a similar role to Yaridovich's Mirage attack! in the final. Their Psychopath though is "This is for Yaridovich!" further suggesting they were intended to be his minions, as Shysters are to Mack and Aeros are to Bowyer.
