“Attack Pieces are fragments that form Special Attacks. If you collect all 10 of the Attack Pieces, you'll be able to use that Special Attack.”

Attack Pieces are special puzzle piece items that were introduced in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its 3DS remake, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey and reappear in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. They are usually found in singular areas, and collecting ten of them in one area will grant Mario and Luigi with powerful Special / Bros. Attacks in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey and Mario & Luigi Dream Team (in the Real World). Luiginary Attacks are also granted by collecting all 10 Attack Pieces in the Dream World locations from Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

Most Attack Pieces can be found in and collected by striking blocks that resemble them, though others can be obtained by different methods (ex. from NPCs after completing certain objectives).

History[edit]

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story / Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey[edit]

Attack Pieces make their debut in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, where they grant Mario and Luigi with a Special/Bros. Attack once all ten are collected in a single area. They are first found in the Trash Pit inside Bowser's body. The locations of the Attack Pieces remain the same in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team[edit]

Attack Pieces make a return in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, but this time, they grant different types of special attacks. In the Real World, Attack Pieces grant a Bros. Attack to one of the brothers once all ten are collected. In the Dream World, they instead grant a Luiginary Attack to Mario. The brothers obtain their very first Attack Piece in Mushrise Park, given by a Toad after saving him from Thorbs.
