Latest appearance Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey (2018)
Variant of Dark Satellmite

The Dark Satellmite X is an enemy that appears in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey. It is a stronger variant of the Dark Satellmite, possessing significantly higher stats.

It only appears in the Gauntlet, where a pair of Dark Satellmite X assist Dark Star X in its boss battle. Both Dark Star X and its Satellmites are fought twice, first as a Class 6 boss; defeating it unlocks Class 7, where they assist it again as part of the boss rush's penultimate battle.

When fighting Mario and Luigi, they will shoot lasers at the Bros., but can easily be dodged by jumping. Sometimes, the Dark Satellmites X will jump themselves, so their attacks are dodged by not jumping. They may also heal the Dark Star X by 100 HP (30 HP in the remake) and give it a POW, DEF or SPD boost. When they are defeated, they start flashing a red color. When the Dark Star X attacks next, it gives a bomb to the defeated Dark Satellmite X, which then jumps high in the air with it, and then lets go. Both the bomb and the Dark Satellmite X fall towards the Bros., who must use their hammers to hit the Satellmite back at the Dark Star X, doing damage and causing its spines to retract. After two Dark Satellmite X hits, the Dark Star X falls to the ground for a few turns and can be damaged, making defeating the Satellmites an integral part of the battle. The bomb the Dark Satellmite X 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.
