Brobot is Mr. L's giant robot in Super Paper Mario. Its name is a portmanteau of "bro" (a slang word for "brother") and "robot". He was created in the image of Luigi's head. It is the Super Paper Mario equivalent of the Magnus Von Grapple robot found in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
After Mr. L is beaten in the Whoa Zone, he summons the Brobot and faces the player and Squirps in a battle resembling a space shooter. After defeat, he retreats to fix Brobot. He comes back in Chapter 6-1, after Sammer's Kingdom gets destroyed by The Void, with the improved Brobot L-type.
Brobot's 255 HP may be a reference to the data storage abilities of classic consoles. It is also the largest amount of HP in the game (tied with Dark Muth for having the most HP out of any enemy in the game besides Shadoo), even more than its improved version. However, this is countered by the fact that Squirps' laser rapidly delivers large amounts of damage.
Brobot appears in volume 37 of the Super Mario-Kun, in the Super Paper Mario story arc, where Luigi calls upon it after thinking about negative memories he had with Mario. The Brobot then gets defeated by the Pure Heart and the happy flowers.
In battle, Brobot fires homing missiles and straight shots at the party. The missiles can be destroyed by shooting them. Brobot also fires lasers from his eyes, but they can be dodged by flipping. He can also open his mouth and inhale to try and suck the gang in, then eat them and spit them out, doing major damage in the process.
During the battle, Choco-bars will float by. The player can get them and use them for his or her advantage. There are five different colors, and each color has a different effect;
