Dry Bones is an enemy in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. In English, it shares its name with the Dry Bones species it is based on, but was named differently in other languages, such as Garon in Japanese. Prima Strategy Guides incorrectly used Garon as the enemy's English name in its Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga strategy guide.

These Dry Bones can be battled in Teehee Valley; they are an upgraded version of the common Dry Bones found along Hoohoo Mountain, and unlike its weaker cousin, it has a shell and a purple tint all over its body. This stronger variation has the same attack pattern as the weaker, but its attacks are infused with poison and will poison the Brothers if an attack connects; its shell also reduces damage from any attack that isn't a jump to one. Furthermore, they can use the Troopea's tackle attack, which can be used to deflect its shell back at other enemies in the same way.
