That's an Elite X-Naut. This guy is the creme de la creme of the X-Nauts. Max HP is 10, Attack is 5, and Defense is 1. He'll use regular attacks as well as boosting his power or size. Elite X-Nauts are tough, but you just have to smack away until they go down.


Elite X-Nauts are high-ranking soldier X-Nauts and the strongest X-Nauts. Unlike the X-Naut or the PhD, this type of X-Naut wears a red-and-black uniform with a white X to signify its rank. Judging by their rank, they are usually sent on special missions, such as making sure that X-Naut Black is on board the ship that Mario boarded on Rogueport docks. One of their usual tasks is guarding their Headquarters on the moon. The Elite X-Naut is much tougher in battle than a standard X-Naut, but otherwise uses the same attacks. After the adventure is over, it is revealed that a few Elite X-Naut survived, where they presently accompany Crump, Grodus's head and some other X-Nauts in Poshley Heights.
