Bros. Points (commonly abbreviated as BP) are a special stat found in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. Bros. Points behave similarly to the Flower Points of the Paper Mario series in that they are used to perform special moves, which in the Mario & Luigi series are known as Bros. Attacks. Bros. Points are increased each time Mario or Luigi level up.

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, the meter in the image with the red and green ball shows how many Bros. Points Mario and Luigi have. Mario or Luigi must drink Syrup Jars or use a similar item in order to regain lost Bros. Points. The Mario Bros. receive their first two Bros. Attacks in Stardust Fields along with two field commands.

Bros. Points are absent in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time as Bros. Attacks are replaced with Bros. Items. Bros. Points were renamed "Special Points" (SP) in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, due to Bowser having his own Special Attacks involving his minions, though this was renamed back to Bros. Points in its Nintendo 3DS remake, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey.

Bros. Points return in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, behaving exactly like the first game, with the exception that they are also used for Luiginary Attacks while in the Dream World. The Green Shell icon used for representing Special Points in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is used to represent Bros. Points in this game.

Bros. Points reappear again in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, where they function the same way they did in the previous two games. They can also be used for Trio Attacks controlled by Paper Mario.
