Taunt Ball is an item found in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. It is a yellow ball with a teasing expression drawn on it. It can be used during battle against the enemies that appear in background. A Taunt Ball inflicts 1 damage point and lures one enemy out the background and into the battle, so Mario and Luigi are able to fight it. Some background enemies may not be required to defeat in order to win the battle. Other background enemies may also flee when alone. Background enemies with only 1 HP, such as a Nipper Plant spawned by a Piranha Plant, are instantly defeated if hit by a Taunt Ball.
