The End – Super Mario RPG. Ep. 28

Welcome back to Save File Plays Mario RPG. The last episode of Save File Plays Mario RPG. Because we’re at the end of the game, and it’s time to END THIS. I’ve done basically everything. Things I DID NOT DO: Grate Guy’s Casino (I showed it exists though), 30 Super Jumps, 100 Super Jumps, and all the Surprise Boxes. But I defeated Culex and Jinx, and did everything else. So… let’s finish it off!

First of all:
Ep. 28.mp4_000008757
I did a little grinding off camera to get Mario, Toadstool and Geno all to Level 30.

I’m also ending the game a 93/99 possible Flowers and 999 Coins.

Ep. 28.mp4_000035787
Mario has the Lazy Shell, Hero Shirt and Safety Badge to make him immune to status effects and insta-death. Toadstool has the Frying Pan, the Lazy Shell, and the Jinx Belt which makes her slow, powerful and basically the undying.

Lastly, Geno has the Star Gun, the Star Cape, and the Quartz Charm from Culex just because it seems apropo with the “Star” theme.

Ep. 28.mp4_000042883 Ep. 28.mp4_000048661 Ep. 28.mp4_000053941
Toadstool’s defense is MASSIVE. Geno is the fast, but powerful guy, and Mario will just wreck your shit.

Ep. 28.mp4_000079207 Ep. 28.mp4_000082891

MUSIC: End of Factory

Ep. 28.mp4_000088826 Ep. 28.mp4_000092142 Ep. 28.mp4_000096242
Smithy: Already finished your tour of the factory, huh?! All right, then! How about a little demonstration?

Ep. 28.mp4_000105420 Ep. 28.mp4_000109836
Smithy: Huh? …Gufaw haw haw! So YOU’RE… Mario?! Looks like we’re gonna have a little dispute over the star.

Ep. 28.mp4_000130116
Smithy: My, my! We’re a little touchy today, aren’t we? You know, I’m actually growing rather FOND of this place…

Ep. 28.mp4_000194876
Smithy: Harrumph! Better yet… Why don’t YOU give me YOUR stars. Why, then I could easily conquer this world! Then we could get rid of all wishes, and create a world filled with… WEAPONS!!

Ep. 28.mp4_000217292 Ep. 28.mp4_000219112
God, I don’t know why, but I love LOVE those 2 lines. It just makes Smithy seem so badass. It’s so simple and to the point, no grand speeches, nothing special, just a claim that he’s going to kick your ass all over the place.


MUSIC: Fight Against Smithy


Ep. 28.mp4_000221420 Ep. 28.mp4_000226995 Ep. 28.mp4_000227966
I also definitely love that they gave Smithy some unique attacks. This is the only battle in the game where you’ll see the Sledge spell used.

Ep. 28.mp4_000234342 Ep. 28.mp4_000244928 Ep. 28.mp4_000247072
A Crystalline and a Power Blast start the battle off, so I don’t have to waste 3 of Geno’s turns.

Ep. 28.mp4_000250549 Ep. 28.mp4_000253870
Besides Smithy, the Smelter is a target as well. You should actually make the Smelter your priority, because it can add more enemies to the fight. I guess it’s also possible to just take down Smithy as fast as possible, but it just feels right to leave him for last, y’know?

Ep. 28.mp4_000257185 Ep. 28.mp4_000259019
Meteor Swarm is one of the prettiest spells in the game, if not the prettiest. I also think this is a spell unique to Smithy, I don’t remember seeing anything else use it.

Ep. 28.mp4_000278835 Ep. 28.mp4_000281266 Ep. 28.mp4_000283740
So yeah, Smelter can spit out some goo, which Smithy then hammers into a Shyper. Shypers are annoying, they have a regular physical attack…

Ep. 28.mp4_000309312 Ep. 28.mp4_000311021
And they can also cast Sword Rain, which is a pretty cool looking spell.

Ep. 28.mp4_000316072 Ep. 28.mp4_000333198
Of course, Smithy isn’t just a magic user. That big ass hammer in his hand isn’t just for show.

Ep. 28.mp4_000351142 Ep. 28.mp4_000352760
I just really like the look of this spell.


Ep. 28.mp4_000389129 Ep. 28.mp4_000395804
Aero: Your head looks like a geyser!

Ep. 28.mp4_000402906
Drill Bit: Think of your blood pressure!

Ep. 28.mp4_000411743
and the foundation’s very weak. So… STOP SHAKING THE FLOOR!!

Whoa, that guy’s got some balls.

Ep. 28.mp4_000422403 Ep. 28.mp4_000425551
Yeah, this goes well.

Smithy: Huh?! What the?! How in the heck…?!

Ep. 28.mp4_000440492

Ep. 28.mp4_000447267

Ep. 28.mp4_000449826
Smithy: Uwooooooooo… I’m burning… seething… Never have I been so wronged… It is time… I will show you my real form… I will show you my true power… I will teach you respect… And I shall have my revenge…

Ep. 28.mp4_000482096 Ep. 28.mp4_000486506
Ep. 28.mp4_000490256Ep. 28.mp4_000494591
Smithy2: Come on, you puny ants!

MUSIC: Fight Against Smithy, Who Likes Transforming

Sad confession time: This fight used to scare me when I was little. It took me a long time to actually beat the game, because I got to this part multiple times and got scared and had to turn off the game. Smithy’s final form was terrifying, and the Smithy skull in the back staring directly at the screen was not a big help. Even the music is super tense and kind of eerie.

Ep. 28.mp4_000511002
This is a new fight, so I throw down another Power Blast & Crystalline.

Smithy’s gimmick is that he transforms his head into different forms, and each has its own schtick.

Ep. 28.mp4_000519933
The Tank Head just bashes your face in with pure physical attacks. It also has a OHKO move that it uses occasionally.

Ep. 28.mp4_000531969
Smithy also has 2 targets; his head and his body. His body only has 1000 HP, so it’s worth it to take that out quickly and cut his attack speed in half, basically.

Ep. 28.mp4_000542626 Ep. 28.mp4_000549690
When you receive that message, it means his body is out of commission for the time being.

Ep. 28.mp4_000555558

Ep. 28.mp4_000566879
For YEARS, I never new what that head was supposed to be, because I looked at Smithy’s weird ass face on the bottom (though it’s more like a groin face), until eventually I looked at the top and realized “OH MY GOD, IT’S A ROBED MAGE HEAD.” It finally clicked with me that this is the “Magic Head” and it looks like a wizard. Sometimes, I am not the most intelligent.

Ep. 28.mp4_000580996 Ep. 28.mp4_000582732 Ep. 28.mp4_000603343
Of course, the Mage head has access to some damn powerful magic. The pictured above Arrow Rain (unique to Smithy), Boulder, Sword Rain, Meteor Swarm, etc.

Ep. 28.mp4_000615397
This message means that the Body is back and needs to be taken down again.

Ep. 28.mp4_000702013
This is the Mystery Head, who likes to try and cause status effects.

Ep. 28.mp4_000720273 Ep. 28.mp4_000721637
Pretty trippy.

Ep. 28.mp4_000783418
I call this the Lockbox head. It has very high defense, and that’s about it. It can cast Shredder, which can be pretty annoying.

And that’s all of them! NOW I CAN KILL HIM.

Ep. 28.mp4_000825675
Smithy2: I don’t believe it! I’m… finished… done for…! Guoooooooo… nooooo…!

Ep. 28.mp4_000844604
Bye, whore!

Ep. 28.mp4_000860615 Ep. 28.mp4_000862916

MUSIC: Got a Star Piece

Ep. 28.mp4_000877770 Ep. 28.mp4_000885324Ep. 28.mp4_000898548
We did it! We’ve got all 7 Star Pieces!

But now…

MUSIC: Goodbye, Geno

Ep. 28.mp4_000920038 Ep. 28.mp4_000923787

Ep. 28.mp4_000928386 Ep. 28.mp4_000935755
Ep. 28.mp4_000947506Ep. 28.mp4_000955586
Ep. 28.mp4_000970459Ep. 28.mp4_000976686
Ep. 28.mp4_000983220Ep. 28.mp4_000997048Ep. 28.mp4_001014483

And there he goes…

Ep. 28.mp4_001028118 Ep. 28.mp4_001035620
Well, I don’t think Bowser’s Keep could ever look HAPPY, per se… but I think that’s about as close as we’re going to get.

Ep. 28.mp4_001045818 Ep. 28.mp4_001050987
And now that the Star Road is repaired, we’re treated to an epilogue of sorts.

Ep. 28.mp4_001065545
Mallow is back home, taking his rightful position as Prince of Nimbus Land.

Ep. 28.mp4_001074488 Ep. 28.mp4_001082915
Bowser and his Koopa Troop are hard at work restoring the Keep.

Ep. 28.mp4_001095516 Ep. 28.mp4_001105067
Johnathan “Johnny” Jones is still as badass as ever.

Ep. 28.mp4_001113884 Ep. 28.mp4_001122035
Croco has found a new home on Yo’ster Isle.

Ep. 28.mp4_001142682 Ep. 28.mp4_001155520
Oops… I forgot about Toadofsky. Well, Toadofsky and Frogfucius are hanging out at Tadpole Pond.

Ep. 28.mp4_001161271 Ep. 28.mp4_001169410
Booster eventually got his wedding. Good for him.

Ep. 28.mp4_001184216 Ep. 28.mp4_001193527
And of course, Toadstool and Mario are together.

THANKS FOR READING, EVERYONE! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve played this game, and I still love it. I’m pretty sure I know what my next game is, but I was feeling kind of burned out with Legend of Legaia, but this made me feel good because I love this game so much. I hope you enjoyed it, make sure you keep up with all of our other content, and you guys are awesome. My recording software bugged out, so I didn’t manage to get the credits, but here’s a video that someone else was kind enough to upload to Youtube. I hope you enjoy it!
