Trivia[edit]

  • Scutlet, Chakron, the Dark Star Core, and the Shroobs are the only bosses that Mario and Luigi fight which don't appear in the Gauntlet.
  • If the Bros. lose against Durmite X before receiving the Badges from Princess Lipid, the Emoglobin at the door will still mention their existence.
