Dropchopper is Luigi's third available Bros. Attack in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. In the former, Luigi obtains the 10 Attack Pieces for this attack on Mount Pajamaja. In the latter, Luigi obtains this Bros. Attack after the trio drill-dashes Nabbit between Doop Doop Dunes and Mount Brrr. It costs 7 BP (4 if Casual Bros is equipped) to use this attack, and its damage is given Jump attributes, doing critical damage on enemies weak to jump attacks.

Upon using the attack, Mario and Luigi run into the foreground, and the Dropchopper begins floating in mid-air near the bros. as they run towards the group of enemies. Tilting the 3DS makes the chopper move in the direction the handheld is tilted in (the Circle Pad is used instead in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam). Once the Dropchopper is above one of the bros, the player must press A Button or B Button, depending on which bro the chopper is above. Once Mario and Luigi have both grabbed onto the Dropchopper, it slowly rises into the air. The player can continue to tilt the 3DS to change the target area below. Once the Dropchopper hovers above an enemy, either A Button or B Button must be pressed to cause the Dropchopper to drill down into whatever is currently below it with tremendous force, heavily damaging the enemy it directly hits and moderately damaging enemies in the target circle with the impact's shockwave. The attack fails if both Mario and Luigi cannot grab onto the chopper in time, and if a single Bro manages to grab on, the attack continues as normal but deals minimal damage. Also, if a stack of Biddybuds are hit, the entire stack takes damage all at once.
