~ Clawgrip

Clawgrip is a boss and supporting antagonist in Super Mario Bros. 2 and its remake Super Mario Advance. He is one of Wart's generals and a member of the 8 Bit Club.

Biography

Super Mario Bros. 2

Originally, in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, his boss fight was originally in place with a cream white Mouser. However, it was deemed to difficult, and was replaced with Clawgrip. Clawgrip first appears in Super Mario Bros. 2, being fought as the boss in World 5-3. Clawgrip attacks the player by throwing boulders at them. In order to defeat Clawgrip, players need to grab the boulders and throw them back on him five times. In the remake, Super Mario Advance, instead being a giant crab in the beginning of the battle, he was originally a Sidestepper. Clawgrip is grown to his giant size when engulfed by several bubbles which resemble that of Wart's.

BS Super Mario US

Like other bosses from Super Mario Bros. 2, Clawgrip returns in BS Super Mario US and acts the same way as in the original game. However, despite the game's Japanese script, he has the tendency to lapse into English when Clawgrip speaks, likely a nod to first appearing in Super Mario Bros 2. rather than being first appearing in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic like other Super Mario Bros 2. bosses.

The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!

Clawgrip appears as a minor antagonist in the Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, where he, along with Mouser, Tryclyde, and Fryguy is a minion of King Koopa rather than Wart.

Nintendo Comics System

Rather than being a single character, Clawgrip is portrayed as a species, whom seemed to work for King Koopa.

Appearance

Clawgrip is a large, overgrown Sidestepper with a yellow belly, giant claws, and pinchers. In the Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, Clawgrip is shown wearing a blue bandanna on his head. According to his original description, Clawgrip can "grow suddenly", which is only present in Super Mario Advance.

Trivia

  • In the credits for Super Mario Bros. 2, it's remake, and the Japanese version of Super Mario Advance, Clawgrip is called "Clawglip". Likely due to the fact that the "r" sound is not normally distinguished from the "l" sound in Japanese.
  • Clawgrip is the only Super Mario Bros. 2 boss (as well as enemy) to be introduced in said game, all the other enemies and bosses were introduced in Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic, which was later released as Super Mario Bros. 2 outside of Japan.
