The Pandorite is an enemy disguised as a Treasure Chest that appears in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. The creature inside the chest appears to either be a squat, pudgy ghost, or a mole of some sort. It is encountered in Kero Sewers. Its name comes from the Greek legend of Pandora's Box, a jar that released the world's misfortunes once opened by a curious woman named Pandora seeking treasure.
The Pandorite possess both high physical attack and defense, and equally high magical attack and defense. It is immune to all special attacks, Mario's various Jump attacks excepted. In battle, the Pandorite can cast various fire spells, including Flame and Flame Wall. The creature inside the chest also uses the attack Scream, which can induce the Fear status ailment and Carni-Kiss, as well as physical strikes. Defeating Pandorite rewards Mario's party with ten experience points, thirty Coins, a Flower Jar, and the Trueform Pin. If Mario exits the room and reenters it at any point, the Treasure Box that previously held the Pandorite now contains an additional fifty Coins instead.
