About Fawful

Fawful was originally created by Masanori Sato and is categorized as a Beanish character. Gerakobits is Fawful’s Japanese name and is derived from the word “geragera,” the Japanese onomatopoeia for scornful laughter. His name in English a combination of the words “awful” and “guffaw.” His first appearance in the Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga shows him as Cackletta’s sidekick, in which he helped the witch steal Princess Peach’s voice. Her voice was needed to awaken the Beanstar. It was Fawful who revived Cackletta by transferring her soul to Bowser’s body.

He is content being Cackletta’s sidekick, but he can turn into a total narcissist creature whenever he becomes a villain in his own right. He even goes as far as making his army look just like him, complete with green skin and all. Fawful has a weird way of speaking. His sentences are made up of redundant statements sounding like complete gibberish. He usually speaks about himself in the third person and only switches to the first person when saying phrases like “I have fury!”
