Paper Broozers are paper forms of Broozers that appear as enemies in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. Unlike their normal counterpart that attacks by punching one of the heroes, Paper Broozers instead throw multiple barrels at the trio, between 2 and 5 per attack. The direction the barrels face before being thrown indicates who they will target. The barrels must be hammered, which can cause their contents to be sent back towards the enemies' side of the field and cause damage. Sometimes, Paper Broozers will spin while throwing the barrels, switching which barrels will target Mario and Luigi. This doesn't effect the barrels that target Paper Mario. Very rarely, Paper Broozers's barrels can drop the Farmer Boots when counterattacked, which is the only way to get them in the game. Paper Broozers receive a Power boost when they are attacked, including first strikes but not counterattacks. It also shares with its counterpart a barrel attack where it drops a barrel in front of themselves and ram into it, causing it to fly into their target, and then follow it for an arm-flailing hit. The barrel's trajectory depends on whether it is a paper barrel or not. If the barrel matches the Broozer, it must be jumped just after it is bumped. If a Paper Broozer hits a normal barrel, it gets barely nudged forwards, and is basically pushed along the ground. Either way, the Broozer itself must be jumped over to complete the dodge and counter. Paper Broozers are commonly found at Neo Bowser Castle, and two of them are fought alongside two regular Broozers as one of Bowser's last lines of defense.
Rare, shiny variants can also appear in place of the regular Paper Broozers in the same area. These Broozers have greater stats and will always drop a Ultra Candy and Shiny Battle Card when defeated, though their methods of attack remain the same.
