X-Fists are explosive rockets in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. They are a part of Magnus von Grapple, separating from the main robot when Lord Crump fires them. They will then appear as targets in-battle, and the player must attack both X-Fists to defeat them; alternatively, using Flurrie's Gale Force can blow them away. If left undefeated, the X-Fists will fly right at Mario and his Partner doing 4 damage each. They are later replaced by stronger variants called X-Punches, used by Magnus von Grapple 2.0.
