All Mallow Special Attacks in Super Mario RPG

Seren Morgan-Roberts

This page offers a guide on all of Geno’s Special Attacks in the Super Mario RPG remake. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about every special attack, including their power, FP, effects & more!

Mallow is a versatile character with support and offensive special attacks!

List of all Mallow’s Special Attacks

Mallow is a pretty versatile lil dude, and depending on the scenario you could use him as a support-type member with his healing, or he can be the primary damage dealer with his multiple multi-target Special Attacks.

Special Attack Level Unlock Power Effects FP Cost
Thunderbolt Default 15 Thunder damage to all enemies, and deal extra damage by hitting “A” Joy-Con-ButtonA right as the lightning strikes. 2 FP
Thought Peek Default - Choose an enemy and find out their remaining HP and weaknesses/resistances. 1 FP
HP Rain Lv. 3 10 Heal one ally and when the shower ends press “A” Joy-Con-ButtonA again at the end to heal the ally to full. 2 FP
Shocker Lv. 10 60 Thunder damage to one enemy and press “A” Joy-Con-ButtonA at the end to deal extra damage. 8 FP
Snowy Lv. 14 60 A snow attack that will deal more damage the quicker fill the wheel by rotating the left analogue stick. 12 FP
Star Rain Lv. 18 55 A huge star will fall down from the sky and damage all enemies. Press “A” Joy-Con-ButtonA to make the star bounce. The star can bounce up to 17 times. 14 FP

Thunderbolt and Shocker

Thunderbolt and Shocker are strong attacks that deal Thunder damage. Thunderbolt is an early game default attack that you can use to clear out multiple enemies at once. Shocker is a stronger and more targeted version that you can use to hit one enemy and like Thunderbolt, you can deal extra damage if you hit “A” Joy-Con-ButtonA at the perfect time (as the lightning bolt hits the ground).

Mallow is the MVP of this battle and you'll need to do everything in your power to keep those Thunderbolts coming!

Thought Peek

Thought Peek doesn’t deal damage or heal but it is very useful nonetheless! Using this ability will allow you to view the enemy’s remaining health and their weaknesses/resistances. This lets you assess the fight more accurately and use more powerful elements to deal with the enemies quicker.

Discover an enemy's weaknesses and HP using Thought Peek.

HP Rain

HP Rain can be used to heal an ally, allowing you to use Mallow as a pure support player in some scenarios. If you perfectly hit “A” Joy-Con-ButtonA right before the shower ends it’ll heal the target to full!

Mallow's HP Rain can be a useful support ability in big fights!


This attack will perform Ice damage to all enemies in the fight. To get the max amount of damage, you’ll have to rotate the left analogue stick as quickly as you can to fill the wheel to the max. It’s a great attack to have in your arsenal as it provides elemental damage that could be crucial to fighting enemies with weakness to ice damage.


Star Rain

Star Rain might sound like HP Rain, but it’s actually a pure damaging attack! It’ll target all enemies and can bounce extra times if you hit “A” Joy-Con-ButtonA right as the stars land. Unlike Mario’s super jump though, you won’t be able to keep triggering damage as it only bounces up to 17 times.

Big star go bonk!

Super Mario RPG is a wonderful and whimsical remake of the 1996 classic Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. You’ll need to assemble a group of heroes (starting with Mario of course!) to embark on a quest to repair the wish-granting Star Road! Along the way you’ll encounter enemies from the Smithy Gang, and you’ll unlock access to a whole cast of nostalgic playable characters, from Princess Peach to Geno the puppet to the adorable Mallow.

This guide includes everything you need to make your way through the Super Mario RPG remake. Whilst this game is a faithful remake of the original, the game developers, ArtePiazza, have also included some fun post-game match-ups for those who are looking for an extra challenge and a departure from the OG game!
