Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Mallow is a major character and one of Mario's partners from the game Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars; being owned by Square, the developers of said game, Mallow has not reappeared in other games since.

Mallow is a Nimbus and the prince of Nimbus Land. While he was still an infant, he was lost and was eventually discovered near Tadpole Pond by Frogfucius, who raised Mallow, making him believe he was a frog, despite not resembling a frog at all. One day, Mallow visited the Mushroom Kingdom to buy a Cricket Pie for Frogfucius, but the Frog Coin he was given to buy it was stolen by Croco, after which Mallow began to cry; this caught Mario's attention, who helped Mallow and retrieved the Frog Coin from Croco. Eventually, the party arrives at Nimbus Land, and Mallow discovers his true origin and his true parents.

In M.U.G.E.N, Mallow has been made by Tachi; like the same creator's Geno, the character was very unbalanced when it was originally released, though Tachi updated the character since, making it less overpowered, but the character's sound effects are ripped indirectly from Super Mario RPG and still have background music in them, not unlike the same creator's Geno. An edit made by Superteletubbies64 exists that fixes the sound effects and makes other changes.

The updates the creator made after noticing this character is too unbalanced may have gone a bit too far, because Mallow's damage output is unusually low. Mallow is very faithful to the source game, having long-ranged attacks and the ability to heal himself, though he lacks the timed hit mechanic, unlike the same creator's Geno, and the sound effects still have background music in them.
