Hack of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars


This hack was originally intended to replace Culex’s dialogue to match what he says in Japanese for private use. However, it was soon discovered that Super Mario RPG’s text had enough small translation errors, typos and out-of-nowhere capitalization to warrant a close look through every line of dialogue and change what errors could be found. Changes include:

  • Mistranslated monster names fixed (Goby is now Cheep Cheep, Shy Away is now Beezo, etc.)
  • Psychopath quotes which were originally Japanese pop culture references have been replaced with American pop culture references.
  • Final Fantasy references lost/removed in translation have been restored. (along with a few extra added)
  • Typos and unnecessary capitalizations fixed.
  • Various phrases (most notably cringe-inducing puns) rewritten from scratch. (”It’s a CHAIN reaction?” That’s not funny, that’s just embarrassing.)
  • As of v1.1, mistranslated item names (plus a certain location’s name) have been corrected.

This hack was made possible by giangurgolo & Omega’s Lazy Shell editor. No header required for patching.

Improved my experience

Reviewed By: nejimakipiyo on 05 May 2021

I’m extremely glad this hack was released around the time I started my first playthrough of Super Mario RPG. I can’t tell you how annoyed I was that Cheep Cheeps were called “Goby”, and this hack popped up here while I was complaining about it. I can definitely say that having more accurate enemy names contributed to my enjoyment of the game. It also makes Super Mario RPG feel more connected to other Mario games thanks to consistency in the naming scheme. I strongly recommend this hack to anyone who wants to play Super Mario RPG for the first time, or anyone who already loves the game and wants an improved experience.
