Geno is one of the playable protagonists of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. The character Geno is actually a spirit presumably from Star Haven, where he was known by his true name (incomprehensible in our language, but presented as the symbols ♥♪!?). He became known as Geno due to the Geno doll he possessed.
When the Star Road was shattered by Exor, ♥♪!? was dispatched to the surface in order to gather the seven pieces of the shattered road, so the Star Road could be repaired. First he needed an earthly from. After browsing the toy collection of young Gaz of Rose Town, he chose to possess the Geno doll, thus growing it to life-size. He then entered the Forest Maze and battled Bowyer for a Star Piece. He was soon joined in the battle by Mario and Mallow.
Afterwards he explained his mission to Mario and Mallow, and they decided to travel together in search of the seven Star Pieces. As neither Mario nor Mallow could comprehend his name, he simply called himself Geno after the doll. Geno proved to be invaluable to Mario's party. In battle, his magic techniques vanquished many an enemy. Outside of battle, Geno provided moral support for his comrades- he even convinced Bowser himself to continue helping Mario against the Smithy Gang at a point when Bowser could have easily skipped out on the rest.
But sadly, when Smithy was finally destroyed and the seventh Star Piece was gathered, ♥♪!? was forced to leave his body and return to the Star Road, leaving behind the empty Geno doll. But, in his star form, he was able to watch the following celebrations before ascending to the stars above.
Geno was imbued with powerful magic. The special abilities he learned throughout the game are:
- Geno Beam- A powerful blast of energy charged by Geno.
- Geno Boost- This move can raise an ally's attack power.
- Geno Whirl- Geno summons a whirling disk that, depending on the timing, can be either pitifully weak or infinitely strong.
- Geno Blast- An expanded version of the Geno Beam that attacked all enemies.
- Geno Flash- This charged blast is so powerful that Geno transforms into a cannon to pull it off.
Geno's main weapons involve firing projectiles from his hand. The Finger Shot, Hand Gun and Hand Cannon weapons will allow Geno to follow bullets from his hand at enemies. With the Double Punch weapon equipped, Geno will instead fire out his fists. Finally, his Star Gun weapon shot stars at enemies.
Geno's armor consisted primarily of capewear. This included the Mega Cape, Happy Cape, Sailor Cape, Fuzzy Cape, Fire Cape and Star Cape.
