Super Mario RPG is one of the great RPGs of all time. Mixing Square’s incredible talent for crafting beautiful RPGs with Nintendo’s beloved characters was a match made in Heaven. The story was good, the mechanics were good (it introduced us to timed hits making turn based battles more than just wait it out scenarios) and the characters they introduced were good. Smithy, Mallow, Booster and of course, Geno. Everybody loves Geno. There’s such a cult following behind the character, it’s unbelievable but it’s also well deserved as Geno is awesome. He’s probably the best character in the game. All of his moves are great, especially Geno Whirl which as illustrated here, if you time it just right, it actually deals 9999 damage. That’s insane! However it doesn’t work on bosses, well, except Exor but that’s likely a programming error.
