Mario advancing toward Giant Bowser

Star Driver is a one-time attack used in the giant battles against Bowser and Bowser X in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, and acts as an upgrade to Finishing Bros. When Bowser (after being made even larger) is pushed into the lava and dazed, this attack can be performed. While the move starts similarly to Finishing Bros., Dreambert appears when Giant Luigi is about to grab the star and grows it to several times its size. The star crosshair is not present for this move. Instead, Mario has to dodge the incoming fireballs that Bowser is shooting by tilting the system. After avoiding all of the fireballs, the star rams directly into Bowser and instantly defeats him. If Mario is hit by one of the fireballs, the move will end in failure and Bowser will jump out from the pool of lava, forcing Giant Luigi to push him back again. If failed multiple times, the player can choose to make the attack easier.
