Firebrand is a move used by Mario in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. It is the opposite of Luigi's Thunderhand. The move is taught by the Fire God in the Fire Palace, and an advanced technique using the Firebrand is taught by the Jellyfish Sisters, allowing him to charge ahead extremely quickly. This can be used to pass through fast-moving spiked barrels, as well as knock down cannon ball-like objects and Turtles.

Firebrand can light Torches and can be used in battle. Some enemies have a weakness to the Firebrand, and in a few cases, they can only be damaged by it. Fire-based enemies (like Bowletta's normal form) get healed by it instead. They can also use the Fire Bros. Bros. Attack, which involves Mario flinging fireballs at Luigi, who then launches them at the enemy with his hammer. A more powerful variant is Super Fire Bros., however using it uses up more BP and (may) need Mario to use Syrup more often.
