Dark Trashure

Trashures are brown treasure chests that appear in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. They reside in Dimble Wood. Their name may be a pun of the saying "One man's trash is another man's treasure", or simply a pun on "trash" and "treasure" (they also may be a joke about 'trash talking', as the chest itself seems to be whispering words while looking at Bowser). They attack by opening their bodies as the lock on them pulls out three to five of the following items randomly and throws it at Bowser: a Scutlet, a Hammer, an iron ball, a Coin or a Mushroom. Bowser must punch the former three items back at it. If countered, the object will fall back on to the Trashure, damaging it if the object thrown is one of the first three items. The hammers from Trashures can make Bowser dizzy. If a Mushroom is countered, it will be sent back to the Trashure, and the enemy will recover some health.

These enemies have a chance each turn to simply run away from the battle instead of attacking by hopping off to the right side of the screen. If this occurs, the player will not earn any Experience Points or coin/item drops from it. Once the Trashure takes a certain amount of damage, the lock on it will fall off, which makes the chest open and exposes the treasure inside. The Trashure will become unable to act for 1 or 2 turns and Bowser's Vacuum command can then be used to suck the coins out of the monster, usually defeating it instantly in the process. If Mario and Luigi encounter this enemy, they will be unable to steal its treasure should this situation occur, due to the brothers having no access to the Vacuum command. If a Trashure throws items at the brothers, they must jump over them.

Trashures have a stronger counterpart in the Fawfulized Peach's Castle, Dark Trashures. Bowser can use the Vacuum Block to inhale a Blitty from the Trashures.

In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey, they no longer chase Mario and Luigi in the overworld. If they are fought however, there will always be two Trashures.
