Variant of Junker Can

Junker Can Xs are a stronger version of the Junker Cans that appear alongside Junker X in the Gauntlet in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its remake. They have the same battle tactics as the original Junker Cans from earlier on, just much stronger and faster. Junker Can Xs have a different color scheme from their original version, being light brown/yellow with pink eyes instead of the silver/blue color combination with yellow eyes.

They will attack by getting close to the plumbers, trying to slam them, but this attack can be countered by using the Hammers. However, Junker Can Xs will stop short if they see the hammer, and then close their lids, preventing them from taking damage; they must be countered as quickly as possible, but not too quickly. Junker X may occasionally pick up Luigi and throw him in a Junker Can X, and he cannot get out until Mario hammers and defeats the Junker Can X holding him. If Mario is defeated with Luigi still trapped, the can will drain Luigi's HP and KO him as well.

If Mario and Luigi do defeat a Junker Can X, a Fish Bone (replaced with a Scutlet in the remake), Chain Chomp, or Nooz will head for the plumber that attacked it but will be a lot faster than before.
