An Elite Gritty Goomba is a stronger version of the Gritty Goombas, appearing in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They can be found in Gwarhar Lagoon. In the original game, they were simply called Gritty Goombas, 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 them.
Like Gritty Goombas, they are swathed in cloth (resembling a mummy), and don sunglasses with a spike and colored flag protruding from their head. Elite Gritty Goombas are capable of summoning sandstorms and using them as a cover while trying to run into Mario and Luigi, who must counter with their Hammers. Unlike regular Gritty Goombas, when one of the Elite Gritty Goombas performs their attack, it is harder to determine which brother it is targeting before attempting to ram him.
Elite Gritty Goombas are one of the few enemies to not appear in Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser, making it the only enemy that has a stronger palette to not appear in Minion Quest.
