Broque Madame, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

Broque Madame is a block character in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, similar to Broque Monsieur. Her house serves as an Enemy Attack Challenge House in Blubble Lake, which is the equivalent of the Cholesteroad inside Bowser. Her name appears to be a pun on a French sandwich dish called "croque madame".


Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story[edit]

Broque Madame talking to Bowser.

Bowser comes across Broque Madame's house in Blubble Lake, and when he enters she asks for a massage to soothe her aching back. This is accomplished by Bowser using his special attacks on her, Shy Guy Squad and Broggy Bonker excluded. Bowser must keep his special attacks going for as long as possible without failing. If Bowser does well enough, Broque Madame rewards him with coins and equipment. Bowser's score is saved if he gets the high score. However, Broque Madame only saves the score for the minigame, so Bowser must still save at a Save Block for the game to be saved, as Broque Madame warns him.

If Mario and Luigi visit Broque Madame, she immediately regards them to be weak but politely asks them to return to talk with her again as she is lonely, and to also request a "burly" guy (Bowser) to come to her house for a massage. If they do return to talk with her, she tells them stories. These stories include topics such as the Shroob Invasion and the fact that someone (Bowser) kept some of them, a reference to the cold storage in Bowser's Castle. She also says that if they have a special one that they need to care for them, because she once had her own special person that gave her up for blocks. She also mentions Kuzzle, who used to come to the lake, but now no longer does so ever since Bowser took his Star Cure.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team[edit]

Broque Madame talking to the brothers.

Broque Madame reappears in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. She is found in the back room of the shop in Driftwood Shore, where Princess Peach (later revealed to be a fake) and Toadsworth, both disguised as Brocks are jumping on her back to massage her. She holds the endless mode for the Luiginary Attacks in this game. She also runs a shop in Dreamy Driftwood Shore, and she helps the Bros on finding the Driftwood Jellyfish Sheets during their search for the Ultibed parts by giving them the Old Lithograph as a clue she happened to stumble upon.

Battle Broque Madame[edit]

Upon Mario and Luigi's first visit to Driftwood Shore, they meet Broque Madame on a stand, who suggests the idea of the Bros. entering her dreams due to her boredom at her shop and her crave for excitement. This is much like the Mad Skillathon; however, it is the Luiginary Attack version for it, similar to her being the version of the Cholesteroad for Bowser's Enemy Attacks in the previous game.

These are the list of rewards gained from hitting the B, A or S rank scores, them respectively being 200 for B, 500 for A and 800 for S. After getting S rank in all four challenges, the player is awarded with the Excellent Boots.

  • In the Italian version, Broque Monsieur speaks with a French accent while Broque Madame does not.
  • There is a recurring mistake in Broque Madame's speech. Instead of saying "chéri" and "chéris", which are French for "dear", she often says "cherí" and "cherís". The accent is in the wrong place.
