That's a Smorg. Lots of Smorgs gathered to create this huge monster. Max HP is 50, Attack is 5, and Defense is 1. It attacks with weird tentacles. Defeating the tentacles will drop the body's Defense to 0, making it easier to attack. The tentacles will regenerate, but use that time to deal a ton of damage, OK? It may also take other forms with higher Attack powers, I don't really know. Let's just hurry and beat this thing down so we can save those trapped passengers!


The Smorg is the boss of Chapter 6 in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Its name may come from the word "smog", based on its dark, cloudy appearance. Their vocabulary consists only of the word, "Smorg". Smorg is made up of massive hordes of smaller, individual Smorgs, and the base is made up of a cluster of magenta Smorgs.

It is the only chapter boss aside from the Shadow Queen that does not guard a Crystal Star.


Individual Smorgs are first seen at Riverside Station, where they lift the drawbridge to stop the Excess Express from progressing. Mario discovers a large group of them hidden within the station, who are trying to conceal a switch controlling the bridge. Mario fends off the Smorgs, causing them to retreat. With that, Mario activates the switch that lowers the bridge, allowing the train to pass. The next day, it is revealed that the Smorgs stowed away on the train and kidnapped the passengers. When the Smorgs are cornered on the top of the train, they combine into a large Smorg horde that attacks Mario and his party.

At the beginning of the battle, three tentacles surround the main body. After taking a significant amount of damage, the tentacles change shape into a pincer claw, which deals a large amount of damage to Mario and his partner. Once defeated, the individual Smorgs blow away in the wind, releasing the passengers.

  • Larry's boss fight in Paper Mario: Color Splash almost perfectly parallels the Smorg's. They both serve as chapter bosses to obtain the second-to-last major star in the game; instead of guarding the star, however, they are both fought on top of a train prior to the train arriving at the star's location.
