Punchinello is a boss encountered in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. He mainly uses variations of Bob-ombs in his battle. Personality-wise, Punchinello is absolutely insane and throws temper tantrums very often. Punchinello lives in the Moleville Mines. When one of the seven Star Piece crashed into the mine, he made it a possession for himself. Punchinello also wants to be famous, according to his wish on Star Hill and his Psychopath thought. When Mario and his allies arrive in Punchinello's area looking for the Star Piece, he thinks he will become famous if he can defeat them and engages them in battle.
