The leader of the X-Nauts, the invading aliens who seek to conquer the world and the main antagonist of paper mario thousand year door; Grodus uses a potent mixture of magic and technology to achieve his dark desires.
Grodus kidnaps Peach from Rogueport and sends his minions to steal the Crystal Stars from Mario. He ultimately offers Peach as a host for the Shadow Queen, but the newly reborn demon simply blasts him to pieces with her dark magic when he demands her subservience. It is later revealed that he survived as his disembodied head.
Sir Grodus is presented as a serious, short-tempered, and emotionless villain bent on nothing, but total world conquest. Grodus is 100% devoted to taking control of the world and every action he performs is aimed at that goal. Taking his plans and operations extremely seriously, Grodus will stop at nothing to obtain his desires. Despite being outwardly calm at most times, Grodus's desires often drive him to appear insane, almost psychotic on some occasions. Whenever discussing the prospect of his plans, he goes off into a maddened laughter that becomes more and more frequent as the story unfolds. This can be seen as a true reflection of his obsession and just how desperate he is to rule the world and remake it into a "perfect world."
Grodus mainly uses magic attacks in battle. He can use his scepter to shoot blue fire, as well as an ice beam. He can also summon lightning that hits both Mario and his partner. If he lacks them, Grodus usually summons his servants, the Grodus Xs to protect him. They can increase his defense or even create a shield that prevents damage. If Mario attacks his scepter, he loses the ability to use magic for a few turns.
