  • King Croacus IV, usually called just King Croacus, is the main antagonist of chapter 5 in the video game Super Paper Mario. The flamboyant king of the Floro Sapiens, Croacus adores beauty and spends most of his time brainwashing Cragnons to rebuild his castle full of jewels. He is also the possessor of the sixth Pure Heart. He was the regent for King Croacus III until he came of age, and when the young ruler wilted, Croacus IV, popular due to his stabilizing influence, was appointed King. He doesn't care for fighting, but when Mario, Peach, and Bowser enter his chambers, he decides to dispose of them. He is defeated by jumping onto his smaller heads and then jumping on his normal head when it becomes exposed, or just throwing the smaller heads at the exposed head. His central head is invincible unless exposed, no matter what the heroes do and can even hurt them if they jump on the corners of it. Then, he loses the rest of his body and floats around on his head, throwing sharp petals at the heroes who must dodge or destroy them and attack Croacus' flying head straight on. He could also be defeated by using Thoreau to grab a smaller head and throwing it at his normal head when it was exposed. After he is eventually defeated, it is revealed that the Cragnons were polluting the waters that the Floro Sapiens drank from, and that King Croacus was trying to save his people by mind-controlling the Cragnons with Floro Sprouts. Upon witnessing the scene, Fliny Cragley declares that he will show his tape to the Cragnons, ending the war between the two races. If the player visits Croacus after Chaper 5, he will still lie on the same spot on the floor, supposedly dead ("wilted"). The Floro Sapien who is watching over him says that he thinks that Croacus will revitalize, which he eventually does. Later, King Croacus is seen in healthy spirits and less insane than before. He jokingly threatens the heroes with another battle, but states that the waters have become less polluted while he was sleeping. He says that he hopes he can help the Cragnons in the future. This suggests that, as the Floro Sapiens say, he is actually benevolent and was driven insane only due to the dirty water.

The Floro Sapiens live in different places, but mainly live where the palace was constructed, in the Floro Caverns. King Croacus I was a strong leader and was loved by all of his servants. However, the Iron Rose was not a good leader for all of his life. He created the Floro Calender after creating the Floro Kingdom, starting at Floro Year 0. In Floro Year 444, the Iron Rose's son wilted and died (it is unknown who the wife is and how many children they had). The Iron Rose then became corrupt and evil due to his son's death. He was over-thrown and power was given to his daughter, later named Queen Croacus II.
