Variant of Limbo Bro

The Elite Limbo Bro is a stronger variant of the Limbo Bro, encountered in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They can be found in Teehee Valley. Appearance wise, they look just like a regular Limbo Bro, except instead of its yellow-tinted skin, they have a green skin tone. In the original game, they were simply called a Limbo Bro, just like their weaker counterpart, but for the remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, they were given their own name to distinguish the two different species.

Like a regular Limbo Bro, it attacks by doing the limbo under its torch and then quickly flying into its target, or striking fire. The former can be countered with Mario or Luigi's hammer, whereas the latter can be dodged by jumping. In the international version of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, the Elite Limbo Bros are healed by fire, but in the Japanese version as well as Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, they take critical damage from it instead.

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, Elite Limbo Bros. appear as enemies in Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser, along with regular Limbo Bros. They are melee troopers, and attack by charging into the minions. Their special skill is Smack Back Attack, which allows them to charge into a minion, knocking them back and causing them to hit and damage another minion.
