Elite Dry Bones
From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia
The Elite Dry Bones is an enemy that appears in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. It appears in Teehee Valley on the path to Popple's hideout, and is the stronger counterpart to the common Dry Bones found along Hoohoo Mountain. They share a similar appearance, with the addition of shells and a slightly purple tint all over their body.
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. The remake gives the Elite Dry Bones its current name.
Elite Dry Bones use the same head-tossing attack as their counterparts, dealing more damage and possibly poisoning the Mario Bros. if it connects. Its shell also reduces damage from any non-jump attacks to one; they can also use the Troopea's tackle attack, which can still be countered by jumping and used to deflect its shell back at other enemies.
