Psycho Kamek is a white-robed Magikoopa ally that appears in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga.

Profile

Physical description

Psycho Kamek is a Magikoopa dressed in white robes and hat, with red trimmings around the ends. He also wears swirly glasses, similar to those of Professor Elvin Gadd.

Powers and abilities

  • Magic: Psycho Kamek is able to use magic like all Magikoopas by using his magic wand.
    • Hypnotism: Psycho Kamek can put his patients in a deep trance and make them think whatever Psycho Kamek makes them believe of, in which whatever case can dramatically and effectively change their mood and personality traits. However, if the hypnotized patient is hit by lightning, the effects of the trance will wear out and the patient will return back to normal.

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

During the events of the game, Mario had come down with Bean Fever, Luigi had to go to Little Fungitown, the home of Psycho Kamek to gain Crabbie Grass as a cure for the Bean Fever. In the area, he found Psycho Kamek, a hypnotist. He lacked courage to go find Mario by himself, so he went to Psycho Kamek to hypnotize him into thinking he is Mario. When Psycho Kamek calmed down, he saw that Luigi looked a lot like his brother and accidentally thought Luigi was Mario's number one fan and then Luigi had been hypnotized.

He can be referred to as psychotic, hence the name as he tried to hypnotize a Toad into believing he was himself. Occasionally, Psycho Kamek attempts to hypnotize himself in front of his mirror, making the residents of Little Fungitown call him Psycho Kamek.

The music that is playing when he hypnotizes Luigi is the same music played in the Chateau de Chucklehuck. In the remake, this is changed to the Chucklehuck Woods theme.
