Elite Pestnuts are enemies in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and reappeared in the remake. They are stronger versions of the Pestnut with tougher power and faster speed.


Elite Pestnuts have higher stats than Pestnuts in the Chucklehuck Woods. They still behave thsame way with faster speed. They cannot be stomped unless either Bro are wearing the correct clothing. With some damage, it will lose its spikes revealing a Beanie that is slowly floating and cannot attack. Bloopers accompany Elite Pestnuts in the Oho Ocean Seabed.
