The Challenge Node is a location inside Bowser's body that appears in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. The Challenge Node is a special place where Mario and Luigi must pay coins in order to fight 

stronger versions of previous, fought bosses for prizes. Mario and Luigi can also use their Special Attacks in this area as a challenge. The Challenge Node is located directly beside Toad Square and directly above the Flab Zone.
