Elite Chuck Guy
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopediaJump to navigationJump to search
Elite Chuck Guys are a stronger version of the regular Chuck Guys, appearing in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. They can be found in Guffawha Ruins, where only Luigi can battle them. On the overworld, Elite Chuck Guys can attack Luigi from a distance by throwing spears at him.
In the original game, they were simply called Chuck Guys just like their weaker counterparts; the remake gives them their current name.
Elite Chuck Guys attack by either charging at Luigi (signaled by a small jump beforehand), which has a chance of inflicting the poison status on him; they may also stab at him with their spear, which has a chance of tripping him. Both attacks can be avoided by jumping; in the remake, the latter attack is countered with the hammer. Elite Chuck Guys also tend to call in more of their kind when they feel threatened. Usually, one will arrive, but occasionally, no other Elite Chuck Guys will arrive, leaving the Elite Chuck Guy shocked and costing him his turn.
In the international version of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, the Elite Chuck Guys are healed by thunder-based attacks, but in the Japanese version as well as Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, they take damage from it instead.
Elite Chuck Guys also appear as enemies in the remake's Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser mode alongside regular Chuck Guys; they only appear as units in two rounds of Spear Party on Ice and a single round of the amiibo-exclusive level, The Beastly Bean Battalion. They are melee troopers, and attack by charging into enemies with their spears. Their special attack is Spin Cycle, allowing them to damage enemies by charging at them and swinging their spear. Elite Chuck Guys are weak against red Koopa Paratroopas.
