Card description
This is a souped-up version of Mr. L's robot. It looks like he went all out with the customizations. Too bad they don't help much!
That's Brobot L-type. Mr. L pulled out all the stops to make this one... Max HP is 64. Attack is 5. Defense is 4. Defense against fire is 8. Most of its moves are the same, but it can now use its hands or tackle you... He seems to be weak to explosions, so try using Boomer on his feet... You remember that after setting a bomb, you can use One Button again to set it off, right?

Mario fighting Brobot L-type

In Chapter 6-1, after the Sammer's Kingdom gets destroyed by The Void, Mr. L appears in the World of Nothing and takes the now-stone Pure Heart. Though he tries to leave, he is convinced to stay and fight, summoning the Brobot L-type. In addition to the arms and legs, the Brobot now is able to inhale and pull in the player, shoot lasers from its eyes, fire rocket punches, ground pound, and fire its mustache like a boomerang.

Despite being an improved version of Brobot, the L-type has less HP, however this is due to the nature of the two battles: the original robot is fought using Squirps' laser fire, which is much more damaging than normal attacks, necessitating a greater amount of HP. Its attack and defense have been increased by one, however.
