A Muth charging at Mario

A Muth is a brown mammoth enemy in Super Paper Mario that appears only in Chapter 5-1: Downtown of Crag in Land of the Cragnons. Muths have 100 HP and 5 attack points, and are worth a large amount of points for their size and strength. Muths occasionally give players a head start while preparing to charge at Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, and Bowser. A stronger variant, called Mega Muths, can be found in Castle Bleck Inner Sanctum, and an even stronger variant called Dark Muths are found in the Flopside Pit of 100 Trials. They sometimes drop Bone-In Cuts; defeating them is the only way to acquire this item. Muths are also mentioned in the Catch Card description for Buzzy Beetles, stating that a Muth stampede would likely not flatten a Buzzy Beetle.

In the game's data, there are graphics for a bright purple and blue variety of MuthMedia:Purple Muth SPM unused.png. However, they are not assigned to any object, and as such, it is unknown how comparatively strong they were intended to be.

Their appearance, as well as their name, come from the woolly mammoth, a hairy, elephant-like mammal that lived in prehistoric eras.
