Claymorton, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Claymorton, originally known as Mack, is a commander of the Smithy Gang and the boss guarding the first Star Piece in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and its remake. He is a giant pogo stick-like sword with floating eyes and a red-colored, roundish humanoid figure attached to his handles, mirroring the Shymores he commands; in the remake, the humanoid figure is now identified as "Claymorton" and appears completely separate from the sword on which he now rides. When attacking, Claymorton shakes his head. Like the other members of the Smithy Gang, Claymorton is modeled after a weapon (in his case, a shortsword). He was originally named after the song "Mack the Knife" (originally "Die Moritat von Mackie Messer" in German). His current name is a portmanteau on "claymore," a kind of sword, and the male given names "Clayton" and "Morton."

History[edit]

With his Shymores, Claymorton attacked the Mushroom Kingdom while Mario was in Bandit's Way. Claymorton occupied the throne room of the Mushroom Castle with his Bodyguards while his Shymores terrorized the residents of the surrounding town. After returning to town, Mario and Mallow fought their way to the throne room and defeated Claymorton. Following Claymorton’s defeat, the two remaining Bodyguards left to inform Smithy of Claymorton's destruction. Claymorton would return in Smithy's Factory, in the form of a gray mass-produced copy of the original. His Thought Peek thought here notably indicates he has the memories of the original, something none of the others' show. In the parade, Claymorton, along with Bowyer and Speardovich, is seen being pounded by Smithy's hammer.

Battle[edit]

At the start of the battle, Claymorton is accompanied by a quartet of Bodyguards. If they are not defeated within one turn, Claymorton will jump out of the battle screen and will not return until all bodyguards on the field are defeated. When in battle, Claymorton attacks with physical strikes and the spells Flame and Flame Wall. After a few turns, the Shymores will be summoned again, requiring the player to repeat the process until Claymorton is defeated. If all the bodyguards are defeated and he reenters, Claymorton will use Flame Wall for his next attack. If all the bodyguards are defeated in one turn after being summoned, Claymorton summons them again and does not attack.

It may seem like he loves bouncing as much as Shymores. Wrong. He loves it way more. All he ever thinks about is how cool he can make his next bounce.

You might think the already-strong Claymorton would be terrifying when mass-produced, but Mario's team is a lot stronger than they were then.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the original SNES game, it is possible to skip the Mack encounter with a trick involving a tricky jump from a Bodyguard over to the Chancellor, who is hiding in the corner. The Bodyguards will not notice Mario, thus the fight will not be triggered. Mack and his gang will be gone after speaking with the Chancellor. The game will continue as normal, though the first Star Piece will not show up in the menu until after the second one is obtained since it was not formally collected. This was fixed in the remake.
