The Elite Dry Bones is an enemy in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and the stronger counterpart to the basic Dry Bones. In the original English version of the game, it was simply called Dry Bones; it was named differently in other languages, such as Garon in Japanese, which was also the name used by Prima Games. It wasn't until the remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, that they were given their own name in English to distinguish them from the weaker counterpart.
These Dry Bones can be battled in Teehee Valley; they are an upgraded version of the common Dry Bones found along Hoohoo Mountain and, unlike their weaker cousins, have purple shells and a purple tint all over their body. This stronger variation has the same attack pattern, but its attacks are more damaging and will possibly poison the brothers if an attack connects; its shell also reduces damage from any non-jump attacks to one. Furthermore, they can use the Troopea's tackle attack, which can be used to deflect its shell back at other enemies in the same way.
