The sailors of the S.S. Chuckola are a skeletal crew, largely resembling human skeletons, who appear in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. They claim to be hauling Chuckola Cola, despite the ship being landlocked in Teehee Valley after sinking long ago, and they do not seem to fully realize that they are undead. They are first seen bringing aboard a piece of the shattered Beanstar, and are subsequently interacted with during Mario and Luigi's efforts to retrieve the piece. Most of the sailors speak with stereotypical New York accents.
Notable members of the crew include the captain, a red-boned skeleton who explains the ship and crew's history to Mario and Luigi; Bink, an apish member who runs the Barrel minigame and resembles a skeletal version of Donkey Kong in the original version of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga but not in the remake; and Bloat, a large skeleton who must be dislodged from a hole that he has become stuck in.
Mario and Luigi's efforts to retrieve the Beanstar piece eventually lead to heaps of sand from Teehee Valley entering the ship, causing the S.S. Chuckola to be sent out to sea upon Oho Ocean once more, where it hits a large rock and quickly sinks into the Seabed, followed by a large pile of the sand pouring out of the hole and covering it up. Mario and Luigi cannot reenter the ship or interact with any of its crew members again after this point.
