Variant of Hammer Bro
Elite Limbo Bro

The Limbo Bro is an enemy in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, and is a derived species of a Hammer Bro. They can be found in Guffawha Ruins, where only Luigi can battle them. These enemies take the appearance of a Sledge Bro, that stands on its hind legs and carries a torch. They wear a blue helmet, and what appears to be face paint. Limbo Bros will attack by doing the limbo under their torch and then quickly flying into Luigi, or striking fire. The former can be countered with Luigi's hammer, whereas the latter can be dodged by jumping.

Like Oucher Glasses, Limbo Bros. never appear on the map screen, instead making their presence known only in battle with Elite Chuck Guys. Teehee Valley has a stronger version of the Limbo Bro called an Elite Limbo Bro.

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, their skin has been changed to a very vibrant shade of orange, but they are otherwise unchanged appearance-wise. Their hip movements in their idle animation is now greatly exaggerated. Limbo Bros. also appear as enemies in Minion Quest: The Search for Bowser, along with Elite Limbo Bros. They are melee troopers, and attack by charging into the minions. Their special skill is Smack Back Attack, which allows them to charge into a minion, knocking them back and causing them to hit and damage another minion.
