First appearance Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (2013)

Propellions are dragonfly-shaped Dream World enemies with pink bodies and yellow propellers for wings that appear in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. In the field, Propellions move around at high altitudes, and will descend towards Mario and Dreamy Luigi if they are nearby. In battle, a Propellion can attack by floating to either the north, east, south or west of Mario, and twirling across the ground towards him at a steady pace. Mario must prevent this by turning towards the enemy, and hammering it before it hits him.

Propellions may also float high into the air and point its bottom either at Mario, or behind him. If the Propellion points its bottom at Mario, it will propel itself into him, Mario having to jump over the attack to avoid taking damage. If the Propellion instead aims at a spot behind Mario, it will fly over Mario, who must not jump to avoid taking damage.
