Mallow is a character from Super Mario RPG, the second one to be introduced. He initally joins your party to get back a coin that was stolen from him. He stays when he learns that, although he was raised by Frogfucious, he is not, in fact, a frog. It is later discovered that he is the prince of Nimbus land, a less-than-shocking plot turn.

His usefulness wanes as the game progresses, and once Bowser joins the party, he can be relegated to the sidelines. I like his psychopath spell best, which tells you how much hp your enemy has left. This can be nice on some of the tougher bosses.

When he casts a spell, he jumps out of his pants. Also, it rains whenever he cries. His preferred weapon is the cymbol.
