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, where only Luigi can battle them. 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 Luigi from a distance by throwing spears at him. However, they do not use this ability during battle. Instead, they attack by either charging at Luigi (they will perform a small jump before attacking), or by stabbing him with their spear. 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 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.
Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser bio: They resemble regular Chuck Guys but believe themselves to be superior with a spear. Weak against red Koopa Paratroopas.
