Bounce Bros. is one of Luigi's Bros. Attacks in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. It is based off of the High Jump. In the original, the move costs four BP on Modes 1 and 2, and three BP on Mode 3. In the remake, the move costs five/seven BP on for its regular variation, and eight/eleven BP for its Super variation. This attack involves Luigi leaping onto Mario, who throws him into the air. When Luigi is right above him, Mario leaps into the air to grab him. The two then do a flip and Luigi slams into the enemy with his hands. The buttons that must be pressed are B Button to throw Luigi, A Button to have Mario jump and catch him, and B Button again to have them both slam down. This attack is learned in Stardust Fields, along with Splash Bros., once the High Jump and Spin Jump Bros. Actions are learned.

If Mario and Luigi successfully execute the attack eight times, the Advanced version can be learned. In the Advanced version, Mario and Luigi separate, each tumbling toward an enemy. The commands are A Button to initiate the attack, B Button to separate the brothers, B Button again when Luigi nears the enemy he's targeting, and A Button again when Mario nears the enemy he is targeting. If there is only one enemy on screen, the commands are the same, but the brothers will both target that enemy.
