Elite Chuck Guys are a stronger version of the regular Chuck Guys, appearing in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They can be found in Guffawha Ruins. In the original game, they were simply called Chuck Guys just like their weaker counterparts. It wasn't until the remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, that they were given their own name to distinguish the two separate species.
On the map, Elite Chuck Guys can attack the Mario brothers from a distance by throwing spears at them. However, they do not use this ability during battle. Instead, they attack by either charging at Mario or Luigi (in the latter's case, they will perform a small jump before attacking), or by stabbing one of the brothers with their spear. Both attacks can be avoided by jumping. 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 losing his turn.
In the international version of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, the Elite Chuck Guys are healed by thunder, but in the Japanese version as well as Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, they take damage from it instead. In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, Elite Chuck Guys also appear as enemies in Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser, alongside regular Chuck Guys. 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.
