Mack is a lieutenant of the Smithy Gang and the boss guarding the first Star Piece in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Mack commands an army of Shysters and can use fire magic. Like the other members of the Smithy Gang, Mack is modeled after a weapon (in his case, a knife) and he is named after the song "Mack the Knife" (originally "Die Moritat von Mackie Messer" in German).
With his Shysters, Mack attacked Mushroom Kingdom while Mario was in Bandit's Way. Mack occupied the throne room of the Mushroom Castle while his Shysters terrorized the residents of the surrounding town.
Mack would return in Smithy's Factory, in the form of a gray mass-produced copy of the original. His Psychopath thought here notably indicates he has the memories of the original, something none of the others' show.
At the start of the battle, Mack is accompanied by a quartet of Bodyguards. If they are not defeated within one turn, Mack will jump out of the battle screen and will not return until all bodyguards on the field are defeated. When in battle, Mack attacks with physical strikes and the spells Flame and Flame Wall. After a few turns, the Shysters will return, requiring the player to repeat the process until Mack is defeated. If all the bodyguards are defeated, Mack will use Flame Wall for his next attack.
Mack is a red-colored, roundish figure who holds onto a pair of handles on top of a giant knife with floating eyes (or may be the knife itself), mirroring how the Shysters and their derivatives ride on similar looking pogo sticks. When attacking, Mack shakes his head.
