First I shall defeat you, and then I will present to King Bowser an iced Mario gift!
~ The Crystal King

The Crystal King is an elegant but evil, faceless king with a shiny crystal crown and the main antagonist of Chapter 7 in the videogame Paper Mario. He works for Bowser and guards Kalmar, the seventh Star Spirit. He took over the Crystal Palace. The White Clubbas were afraid of getting him angry, and would apparently rather be killed by Mario then by him.

Mario encountered the Crystal King in the Crystal Palace and defeated him. The Crystal King dissolved into snow.

In the credits parade, two Duplighosts imitated the Crystal King, only to be revealed by the real Crystal King, before he is lifted away by the Crystal Bits.

Battle

The Crystal King has 70 HP, an attack power of 5, and 2 defense. He has three Crystal Bits which can be killed by one attack. He will spit any Crystal Bits he has at Mario for 4 damage each. The easiest way to defeat him it to destroy two of the Crystal Bits, because if all three are gone, he will use an ice beam to freeze Mario. After a while, he will stop summoning Crystal Bits and start using the ice beam. The freezing effect can be guarded against with "A". The Crystal King can also split into three, in which the two fakes will only disappear if the original is attacked. He can also heal for 20 HP, twice.

Appearances in other media

The Crystal King also makes an appearance in issue 27 of the Japanese-published Mario manga series Super Mario-Kun. Before the fight, the Crystal King announces his presence using Ice Bolt by freezing Kooper. The Crystal King borrows his attacks from the original game such as hurling Crystal Bits and creating duplicates of himself. After an assortment of attacks, including Mario's using smelly clothing, Kooper uses a flaming shell to defeat the Crystal King.

Trivia

  • Although probably a coincidence, there is a treasure in the game Pikmin 2 called the Crystal King.
  • The Crystal Bits both resemble and serve a similar purpose as the Elemental Crystals do to Culex in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
  • Crystal Bits have lower HP than any other enemy in the game, along with Tuff Puffs and Petit Piranhas.
