Super Mario RPG: Armageddon

Hack of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars


Super Mario RPG: Armageddon is a difficulty and content mod for Super Mario RPG. It rebalances the entire game and adds a lot more post-game content, such as more FF bosses, two boss rushes, and even some special guests!

Here you’ll find:

  • The damage formula has been completely rewritten to allow for much bigger numbers
  • Brand new spells like Holy Star, Galaxy Blast, and Geno Flurry
  • New status effects like Curse and even a new element: Holy
  • New weapons, armor, and accessories for each character
  • Dozens of new bosses from a variety of franchises, including Final Fantasy, Pokémon, and more
  • Reworked and reimagined bosses throughout the main story, along with several surprises
  • Dozens of new attacks and spells used by monsters
  • Tons of new and custom sprites, including the new bosses and other characters like Luigi and Rosalina
  • Over a dozen music tracks remixed into SMRPG from various franchises
  • The fact that you can get to level 50 is such a minor detail here, it’s barely worth mentioning
  • And so much more!

Version 10 has a Normal mode and a Hard mode.

  • If you want to beat the game, play the normal version!
  • If you’ve beaten the normal version and want to question your sanity, suffer at the hands of the hard version!

It is not recommended to try to switch between versions in the middle.

Note: Be warned that Hard mode is insanely hard, and it is highly recommended to play Normal first.

A technical marvel of a hack that goes far beyond being just "a difficulty hack"

Reviewed By: Will331999 on 09 Aug 2022

I love this mod a lot, despite how frustrated I tend get with hard difficulty mods, but I feel everyone else has talked about what makes this mod so fun and great, so instead I’m gonna talk more about stuff I like about it on a technical side, I already feel like everyone else has stated exactly why I love this mod. Normal mode is approachable. I recommend that. Do not try hard mode unless you’re an absolute madman.

  • The fact you can have multiple statuses at once is incredibly impressive, and doesn’t go unnoticed (unnoticed by me at least) in terms of how much effort that took, it sounds incredibly simple on paper, unfathomably annoying to accomplish in the editor.
  • Bosses having more than 32,767 HP is a feat in of itself, using a very clever method of healing 30,000 HP every time it reaches 0 HP a certain amount of times. with this method an enemy could theoretically have up to a staggering 8,388,352 hp. Possibly even beyond.
  • Haste in of itself is just… Wow. Just… Wow. this throws once agains out the window, but its completely worth it.

As someone who mods this game as a hobby, I look up to the authors of this hack immensely. Seriously. Give this mod a shot. Even if not for making Mario RPG even more fun, but just to take a look at all the wonderful wonderful things they pulled off with the engine.

Edit: I have now played through v10A, which fixes 3 bugs, 2 of which were damaging for hard mode’s reputation, where as some of the true final boss’s attacks used to be unblockable, they are now blockable. the third, being an easy galaxy coin exploit I discovered was also fixed. (no hard feelings :P )

As an aside, any review that states that this hack requires grinding, or has no power stars should be taken with less than a grain of salt, as they are definitively referring to an outdated version, as I have personally none of those complaints, as they OBJECTIVELY cannot exist in this version. For those that wanna also leave a review, I recommend being careful about accidentally causing misinformation, and make sure about the version you are playing on before you make a review.

Version 10a Recommended - Yes
