A conductor,[1] also known as a Thunder Orb,[2] is an object in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its 3DS remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, being a counterpart to a Torch. Conductors are blue spheres that are first seen in Oho Oasis. They can be found in various locations in the Beanbean Kingdom and be powered by Luigi's Thunderhand (as opposed to Torches, which are lit by Mario's Firebrand), which opens pathways leading to new areas. The conductors in the repaired Koopa Cruiser can reveal hidden ? Blocks containing multiple Hee Beans once powered.
