|First Game||Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars|
The Spiked Link is Bowser's second weapon in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. It appeared as a spiked metal ball on a chain. It is one of his most powerful weapons, but not more powerful than his ultimate weapon, Drill Claw. When Bowser uses it, he will flip it in circles, like he does with the Chomp and then throw it against the enemy. The ball's spikes will become shorter and their original size. If the weapon is timed right, the background will flash in white the last animation and the Spiked Link will do more damage, as usual. Bowser can use it for weaker enemies, which were harder before.
