Elite Troopeas are enemies that appear in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They can be found in Gwarhar Lagoon and Joke's End. They can heal their allies just like a normal Troopea but they can also revive defeated enemies like the Soul Bubble from Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. They also have a flying variant called the Scaratroopea, which also works as the stronger variant of the Paratroopea.
Though their appearance is identical to the Troopeas, Elite Troopeas have a red shell, similar to the red Koopa Troopa.
Elite Troopeas are found on the map in Gwarhar Lagoon. Mario and Luigi can stomp or latter Elite Troopeas with a hammer. Elite Troopeas are faster than Troopeas. Elite Troopeas are accompanied by Beanerang Bros.. Elite Troopeas can revive themselves, enemies or defeated enemies.
Elite Troopeas are less vulnerable to hammer and hand techniques. They are, however, weak to Luigi's Thunder attack despite their defense.
