A Beanie is an enemy that appears in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. It appears as a large, green bean with feet and a face, and seems to be the "Goomba" of the Beanbean Kingdom. The Parabeanie is a variant of Beanie, and both are fairly common in the overworld. Their name most likely comes from a saying, "meanie beanie", due to their mean expression and their appearance.

Beanies attack Mario or Luigi by simply ramming into them. They will sometimes trip before ramming, and the Mario Brothers must not jump when they trip onto the floor. The type of ram can be determined by the Beanie's proximity to the target brother; if they are far away from the bro, they will trip. Defeating Beanies may cause them to drop Woo Beans. Pestnuts are in this game as costumes later.

It is possible to find a golden variety in Chucklehuck Woods and Oho Ocean by cracking the Pestnuts found there. Beanies also spawn if the Bros. stomp one of Queen Bean's rolling beans during the boss fight with her.

In Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, a Gold Beanie can summon a bunch of Beanies to chase Mario.

Beanies reappear in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, functioning the same as in the original game. They also appear as the first enemies encountered in Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser, where they are first fought in the level Go, Goomba, Go! They are Melee troopers, and attack by charging into opponents. Their Special Skill, Mega Tackle, allows them to charge quickly into a targeted opponent, causing more damage than a regular charge.
