Gold Beanies have more powerful attacks than Beanies, and as such net more experience points and coins for Mario and Luigi when defeated. However, they are extremely shy and more often run than attack. The Beanies and Gold Beanies in the Oho Ocean merely float up to the surface, without a need to fight them. Defeating a Gold Beanie will result in a rare badge called the Spike Badge, which allows Mario or Luigi to jump on spiked enemies. If the Game Boy Horror SP is used, it will yield a Chuckola Badge instead.

Gold Beanies once again reappear as an enemy in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, (now called Golden Beanies in PAL versions). After coming back from Dream's Deep through the Dreamy Pi'illo Castle entrance, the player will encounter a Golden Beanie, escaping from Dreamy Broque Monsieur. The latter will explain that this Golden Beanie is a very rare and powerful enemy that only appears in dreams, and is said to grant legendary loot to whoever can defeat it. A Golden Beanie may rarely be found in dreams. Gold Beanies are one of the most powerful enemies the player can encounter, but still run away when they can. Defeating one will result in a variety of loot, including more coins and experience points, a DX Bean of a random type, and after defeating six of them, they may sometimes drop a rare piece of equipment. Despite Broque Monsieur mentioning a single Golden Beanie, more may be found after the first one is defeated. Gold Beanies have 3 attacks, one is when the Gold Beanie will try to keep ramming Mario though this is an easy attack and every time Mario stomps it, it will become faster at some points however a rock may appear causing the Gold Beanie to trip. The second attack is when the Gold Beanie will charge at Mario which needs to be counterd with the hammer and if the Gold Beanie is glowing red, it will jump on Mario possibly throwing off its timing. The final attack is all about paying attention. The Gold Beanie will run from the background summoning many Beanies to attack Mario and the Gold Beanie will hide behind one of the Beanies. Sometimes it may switch between another Beanie to confuse the player. The sparkling one can be seen where it is. If the player fails to avoid getting hit from the Beanies or fails to jump on the Gold Beanie the attack will end and Mario will take damage but if the player jumps on the Gold Beanie, all the Beanies will be shocked and the Gold Beanie will start to sweat making it fall.


While in battle, the Golden Beanie can be knocked down by successfully countering its attacks. This will prevent it from fleeing.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Gold Beanie is the only enemy in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team to drop three different pieces of gear and six different DX bean types, for a total of nine different items, the most any enemy has the potential to drop in the whole Mario & Luigi series.
    • The Gold Beanie also drops gear items as small Gifts rather than large Gifts, a rare case of this.
    • The Gold Beanie also has the highest defense rating of any enemy in the game, at 950.
    • The Gold Beanie is also one of the only non-background enemies that has no designated number for the Expert Challenges, the other being the Golden Egg.
