Finishing Bros. is a special move performed by Mario and Giant Luigi as the final attack to defeat a giant boss in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

When the HP bar of the boss is nearly depleted, it flashes yellow, and the menu only gives the option to use this attack. When it is used, the player must swipe the touch screen to make Giant Luigi leap into space, where he grabs a Super Star. Mario then hops onto the Super Star, followed by Giant Luigi throwing it towards the weakened boss to hit its weak point. While Mario and the Super Star dives into the boss, the player must tilt the Nintendo 3DS to align the star-shaped cursor with the weak point. Missing the target results an "OK!" attack, small gift drops, and a lower coin reward. A direct hit results in the best final blow with "Excellent!!" hit effect, and the player will receive large gifts.

The move becomes Star Driver during the final phase of the giant battle with Bowser.
