Beanerang Bros. (originally known as Boomerang Bros.) are enemies found in the Beanbean Kingdom in the game Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Unlike normal Boomerang Bros., they are extremely tall and thin, wear sunglasses and white gloves, and have sprouts growing from their heads. Their relationship with their namesake appears to be similar to Troopeas and Koopa Troopas or Lakipeas and Lakitus; however, they share their name in the English and Japanese localizations of the original game.

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, they only inhabit Gwarhar Lagoon. In battle, they throw brown, pink striped boomerangs at Mario and Luigi, which can be dodged with jumps. Before throwing, its sunglasses will twinkle; if the right side of the glasses twinkle, it will attack Mario, and if the left side twinkles, it will target Luigi. Sometimes one will throw its boomerang directly at Mario or Luigi, which after reaching him, will come back for the enemy to reclaim, occasionally attempting to hit the opposite brother on its way back. At other times however, one will throw its boomerang off-screen; and when this happens, the boomerang will come back, attempting to hit one of the brothers before the owner can catch it again. The boomerangs can inflict trip on the bros if they get hit by it.

They are capable of dropping Oho Gear ("Ocean Wear" in Japan) in Japanese versions of Superstar Saga; this item was unused in the original English release, being buried in the game's code despite being fully functional.

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, they appear alongside the usual design of Boomerang Bros. Their designs are relatively unchanged, but now have proportionally larger shells and wear shoes. In addition, they are renamed "Beanerang Bros." and can drop Oho Gear in all versions. Beanerang Bros. appear as enemies in Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser as ranged troopers, attacking by throwing their boomerangs at enemies. Their special skill, Piercing Projectile, allows them to throw a boomerang at a targeted minion, damaging every minion in its, along with damaging the targeted minion as it comes back. They are strong against Goomba Towers and Pokeys.

Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser bio: They look like Boomerang Bros., but more stylish. Their sunglasses kind of make them look evil... Strong against Pokeys and Goomba Towers.
