King Calamari is a giant Blooper in the Sea of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. It sank Johnny Jones' ship and was locked in the treasure room. Mario had to work out a six letter word before he can enter the treasure room. This word is Pearls and after Mario works it out, King Calamari allows Mario in the treasure room, where he is battled as a boss. Unlike normal squids, King Calamari has eight tentacles rather than ten, though this may have been merely to simplify gameplay/artwork or because the crew members chopped some off before fleeing it. There are various logs throughout the ship referring to the squid and the calamity it caused. In battle, King Calamari can use Ink Blast and Sandstorm. His tentacles would also aid him with two tentacles attacking at a time.
