Dark Satellmite X

Dark Satellmites are dark enemies that assist the Dark Star in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey. Part of their name is a portmanteau of "satellite" and "mite," a small bug. A stronger version of them, Dark Satellmite X, appears in the battle against Dark Star X in the Gauntlet.

When fighting Mario and Luigi, Dark Satellmites shoot lasers at them, but the lasers can easily be dodged by jumping. Sometimes, the Dark Satellmites jump themselves, so their attacks are dodged by not jumping. When they are defeated, they start flashing a red color while looking dazed (turn into an inactive Dark Star ball in the remake). When the Dark Star attacks next, it gives a bomb to the defeated Dark Satellmite, which then jumps high in the air with it and then lets go. Both the bomb and the Dark Satellmite fall towards the Mario Bros., who must use their hammers to hit the Dark Satellmite back at the Dark Star, doing damage and causing its spines to retract. After two Dark Satellmite hits, the Dark Star falls to the ground for a few turns and can be damaged, making defeating the Dark Satellmites an integral part of the battle. The bomb the Dark Satellmite drops when it falls is merely a decoy; if Mario or Luigi hammers it, it will simply blow up in his face and do damage.
