SMRPG mallow.gif

Mallow, the tadpole who looks nothing like one, is the second character you'll come to control. He first joins you in the Mushroom Kingdom after whilst on an errand from his granddad. Mallow's special abilities revolve around his ability to manipulate weather and his Psychopath technique allows him to reveal the remaining HP of an enemy.
