An Intern Shroob is a smaller, light-colored Shroob that rides on the back of a Shroobsworth in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. Intern Shroobs ride piggyback style, similar to how the Baby Mario Bros. hold on to their older counterparts. Intern Shroobs are found in Shroob Castle, with Shroobsworths.
In a battle, an Intern Shroob aids a Shroobsworth by firing energy blasts from a cannon and by tossing dark meteors. For the cannon attack, the Intern Shroobs will have their target determined by their orientation: if it is rightside up, the Intern Shroob goes for Mario, whereas if it is upside-down, it targets Luigi. In the dark meteor attack, the Intern Shroobs will send the meteor at Mario, whereas the Shroobsworth sends the meteor at Luigi. However, once the Shroobsworth is defeated, the Intern Shroob knocks the Shroobsworth out and continue the fight in place (just as when an adult Mario brother falls, his younger self takes his place). The Intern Shroob does not directly fight its opponents. After the Shroobsworth gets defeated, the Intern Shroob will spend an entire turn doing nothing; in the next turn it uses a bio-engineered 1-Up Mushroom to revive the Shroobsworth. Once revived, the Intern Shroob gets back on the Shroobsworth's back and continues the battle as a team.
