Dr. Shroobs are yellow Shroobs that appear in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. They wear thick, swirly glasses. Dr. Shroobs are found in the Vim Factory, where they presumably monitored the factory's vim transformation process.

In battle, Dr. Shroobs attack with a ray gun, just like a regular Shroob. The energy blasts can be jumped over. Dr. Shroobs also use two items in battle: red Mushrooms and gray Mushrooms. The Dr. Shroob will hold its Mushroom out for a turn before using the item; if attacked while holding a mushroom, it drops the item.

The red Mushrooms make Dr. Shroob gigantic, while gray Mushrooms make Dr. Shroob tiny. After eating a Mushroom (regardless of color), the Dr. Shroob then attacks by charging into its opponent, inflicting more damage if big or less damage if small. Dr. Shroob's charge attack can be countered with a Hammer. During the boss fight against Swiggler, when Dr. Shroobs are attacked, their mushrooms fall into the Swiggler's drink; red mushrooms heal Swiggler, and gray mushrooms weaken it.
