Fawfulcopters are UFO-like enemies that appear in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. They resemble Fawful, and they have a top section with Fawful eyes and a saucer bottom.

Fawful also communicates with Bowser via Fawfulcopter at various points in the game, via a mouth that comes out of the bottom on a rod. As such, Fawfulcopters often appear during cutscenes when Bowser is being controlled. They also appear in Peach's Castle, and hold keys which open certain doors in the castle. Bowser must chase them to get their keys, and once caught they will flee and hand over their key.

They also appear in battle in Bowser Path alongside Chain Chawfuls, where they float on the top screen. Bowser can inhale them, and Mario and Luigi can fight them. In lieu of an attack, they flash a red light, which summons more Chain Chawfuls; if inhaled, while the Fawfulcopter does try using its alarm if not yet destroyed, the alarm does not summon anything within Bowser's body. The Fawfulcopter does not have any attacks but it can escape Bowser's body if Mario and Luigi do not destroy it in two turns. If a Fawfulcopter appears while Mario and Luigi are battling a Chain Chawful, they will not be able to attack it and therefore must defeat the Chain Chawful quickly before the Fawfulcopter summons another one.

Fawfulcopters reappear in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey, also appearing as extremely common enemies in the Bowser Jr.'s Journey mode. They take critical damage against Swoops, Broozers, and red Para-Biddybuds. Their special skill is Discord which can lower the POW of anyone who takes damage from the attack.
