Mangnus Von Grapple is a boss in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. In Mario's hunt for the Crystal Stars, the second star, the Emerald Star, is hidden in The Great Tree of Boggly Woods. The X-Nauts, led by Lord Crump, are already there searching for the star when Mario arrives. Crump allows Mario to find the Crystal Star, and then steals it from him after Mario discovers it at the bottom of the Tree with the help of the Punis. Mario confronts Crump, whom threatened to destroy the Tree with a time bomb. Mario pursues him to the tree's entrance, where he finds Crump being attacked by the Puni Elder. The Elder forces Crump to deactivate time bomb, but he refuses to hand the Emerald Star over. He instead activates Magnus Von Grapple who attacks Mario and his party. Magnus fires its rocket punch at Mario, stomps on him, and even stomps the ground to create earthquakes, but Mario prevails over the robot and claims the Crystal Star. The X-Nauts scientist later builds a new robot named Magnus Von Grapple 2, which is much more powerful than its predecessor.


  • The French name for Magnus von Grapple is "Cruxobot" which is a pun on "crux-" (a prefix referring to a cross) and "robot."
