Paper Jam description Press B to launch, and then press A to drill down when you're directly over an enemy. Once you connect, press B as many times as possible to deal the most damage.

Drill Shell is the second available Bros. Attack Luigi can use in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. Luigi obtains this Bros. Attack after catching Nabbit in Doop Doop Dunes the first time. It costs 5 BP, and it is a single target Bros. Attack.

Immediately after initiating this attack with B Button, Luigi puts the shell on his head and jumps on Mario. When Mario jumps toward to the enemy, press A Button to let Mario and Luigi plunge the shell head to the enemy. When he starts to spin Luigi, start mashing B Button to do a small amount repeatedly in a fast rate; when it is "OK!" or "Good!" the shell will make yellow sparks; in case of "Great!", it will spark blue and in case of "Excellent!" the screen is yellow and sparks purple. After it ended with an "Excellent!", the bros. will put their hands on their head that act like the shell to celebrate.

If the shell isn't hit on the top of the enemy it will start with "OK!", if it is, start with "Good!", 10 hits after is "Great!" ("Good!" if start with "OK!"), another 10 hits is "Excellent!" ("Great!" if start with "OK!").
