BACKGROUND: Cloaker is the brawn of the Domino and Cloaker pair. He resembles a red bottle with a big white beard (or is that a toothy smile?) He dresses in a somewhat traditional Arabic style. Cloaker wields a large sword and also has throwing knives in his arsenal. Together with Domino and his pet snake, Earth Link, Cloaker is fairly dangerous - though he's not so tough on his own. These two seems to be one of Smithy's last line of defence. It's unknown if they were created by Smithy or just hired by him.

OTHER BACKGROUND INFO:
"They may dress like jesters, but beating these guys is no laughing matter! Domino has meaner magic attacks, so eliminate him first. Cloaker talks a good fight, but when left alone he'll beat a hasty retreat to a giant mechanical python named Earthlink. At this point you should focus all your energies on defanging Earthlink. Once the snake is squished, Cloaker will vamoose." - Super Mario RPG Official Player's Guide

QUOTES:
CLOAKER: "MWEE HEE HEE!"
"Behold! They've taken the bait!"
DOMINO: "Hee hee hee! I guess I can spare a few minutes! Maybe they'd like to...play!"

(Domino Beaten) "This is tougher than I though! I don't like where this is going..."
(Retreates to Earth Link) "Put your dukes up!"

Attack Pattern: Cloaker and Domino capture Mario and friends in a hole in the Smithy Factory. Cloaker will use mainly sword attacks mixed with the occasional projectile. His projectiles cause medium damage to one character.
Basic Strategies: Regular attacks are fine, but magic will wear him down a lot faster!
Advanced Strategies: The best team for this fight is Mario, the Princess and Geno. You should use concentrated special attacks against Cloaker - don't bother with attacks that hit everyone because they'll be useless against Domino.
