Sammer Guys, Super Paper Mario

Sammer Guys are vassals in Super Paper Mario that fight for King Sammer. There are 100 of them in all, each guarding a gate for their king to fight challengers in the Duel of 100. There are two additional variants: Small Sammer Guy and Big Sammer Guy. There are also many variants of each type, with different abilities and/or weapons.

They were all destroyed along with their dimension when it was sucked up by The Void, but were restored along with their land after Dimentio, the Chaos Heart, and The Void were destroyed. If Mario, Peach, Bowser, and Luigi defeat all 100 Sammer Guys afterward, King Sammer will banish them all to a vacation somewhere, and they cannot be seen or fought again.

Their name is a pun of "samurai." Almost all individual names of Sammer Guys are references to things from previous Mario games. Sammer Guys also tend to behave very humorously, especially in terms of dialogue. Also, Tippi's tattle on them are notable for being completely unhelpful, only telling random information about each Sammer Guy, such as how Zesty Recipe makes warm, gooey brownies for the Sammer Guy break hour. However, tattling Jade Blooper, the first Sammer Guy, when fighting him the first time does yield stats on Sammer Guys in general.
