Artwork for Croco for Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
|First game||Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars|
Croco is an enemy in the SNES video game Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. He is a purple crocodile with a red top hat. Mario will first spot Croco being chased by Mario's partner Mallow. Once Croco escapes, Mallow explains to Mario that the crocodile stole his grandfather's frog coin. Mario then decides to help get his frog coin back, and Mallow joins his party. Once the team reaches Croco, they must fight him, and win. Once they do, he'll give you back the coin, stating that this is not the last time that you'll see him.
The second time you fight him, Croco will steal all of Mario's coins. Half-way through the battle, he will then steal all of his items.
Other appearances in Mario RPG
In Nimbus Land, Mario will spot Croco stealing more items. Once the thief sees him, he will run away, and will drop a Signal Ring. At the end of the game, rather than being an enemy, he will sell you items at Bowser's Keep. He also appears on Yo'ster Isle in the credits of the game.
