Swing Bros. is one of Mario's Bros. Attacks in the game Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. This Bros. move is learned if the player obtains Secret Scroll 1 from the Thwomp minigame in the Hammerhead Bros.' cave. In the original, move costs six BP on Modes 1 and 2, and four BP on Mode 3. In the remake, the move costs eight/fifteen BP to use its regular variant, and ten/eighteen BP to use its Super variant. The move starts out with Luigi diving for Mario, Mario catching his hands. The A Button must then be held down until the crosshairs flashing on the selected enemy are large. When a certain time has elapsed, Mario flings Luigi, who flies feet-first onto the enemy, damaging it. The player should press B Button just before the impact.

After successfully executing the move ten times, the brothers learn the Advanced version. In the Advanced version, all controls are the same, however, as Luigi is coming back from damaging the enemy, the player should press A Button in mid-flight. Mario will join Luigi in mid-air and together they will spiral toward the enemy. When the Bros. are on top of the enemy, the player should alternate tapping A Button and B Button quickly to steal items, Clothing, or Badges. In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, it is now required to hold A Button and B Button as opposed to tapping the buttons. Also, in the Advanced Version of the move in the 3DS remake, Luigi now stops for Mario to run over to Luigi and dive towards him, catching his hands. Both brothers, still holding each other's hands, jump off the enemy and spin downward in a drill-like fashion, forcing the enemy to drop an item, a piece of clothing, or a badge, as well as a few extra coins before damaging them.
