Magnus von Grapple 2.0 (or Magnus 2.0) is the improved version of Magnus von Grapple controlled by Lord Crump and built by X-Naut Scientists in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It is the seventh Chapter Boss in the game, and the last boss to hold a Crystal Star.
Lord Crump was assigned to guard the Crystal Star in the X-Naut Fortress located on the moon. He controlled an upgraded version of the Magnus von Grapple, with new attacks (a flying drill attack instead of the stomp, an ability to inhale audience members and open its front to fire many audience members at the person in front, and a higher HP, attack and defense). After defeat, the robot explodes, sending Lord Crump into deep space.
Powers and abilities
Magnus von Grapple 2.0 still retains its rocket punch and just like its weaker counterpart, it has the ability to summon an X-Punch, a stronger version of the original version's X-Fists. Magnus von Grapple 2.0's main attack is flying off-screen and then diving down at Mario and his partner, which does six damage. Another one of its attacks is flying to the audience arena, revealing the vacuum from its bottom, sucking up the audience, and then opening its front to fire audience members at the player, which does three damage per hit.
