The Smithy Gang is an evil organization composed of the mechanical monstrosities created by the villain Smithy. The primary goal of the Smithy Gang was world domination, which it came close to doing during the events of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Additionally, Smithy wanted to fill the world with weapons and destroy the power of wishes by shattering the Star Rod. Their main base of operations was Smithy's Factory, which existed in a dimension beyond Mushroom World. Their secondary base was Bowser's Keep which the fiend Exor occupied during the beginning of their invasion. The sword creature acted as a gateway between the two worlds, allowing Smithy's forces to overrun Mario's world.
