During the events between Super Mario RPG and the Mecha Sonic Saga, Smithy was found alive by Boomer, who had managed to survive the fall from Bowser's Keep. Boomer helped Smithy return to full power, and in return, Smithy upgraded Boomer with advanced fighting skills and recreated the other members, giving Yaridovich, Cloaker and Domino their own new skills, while Mack and Bowyer were upgraded to allow fighting capabilities, giving them new bodies. Smithy then rebuilt his factory inside the abandoned keep, which Bowser had left in favour of a much larger castle.
