Tortes are a type of Terrapin that works as a chef in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Their name is German for "layer cake," and resembles the Spanish word "tortuga," meaning "turtle." Only two of them appear in the game, being Chef Torte and his apprentice, who work as the bakers in Marrymore. Due to Mario stopping the wedding between Booster and Princess Toadstool, the Torte's cake had no purpose and was a waste, causing the two to attack Mario in anger as part of a boss battle. Despite their statistics, the Tortes are absolutely invincible and unable to be defeated. Their sole attack involves demanding that Mario stops before running up and punching him. In order to get past them, Mario must instead attack the cake, known as Bundt, eventually causing the cake to come alive and scaring the two off.
Although this is the only occasion Tortes are battled in the final game, there are a few unused enemy formations involving them, potentially meaning they were intended to be a generic enemy at some point instead.
