Dealing with enemies in Dream World or Real World puts players against a wide variety of enemies in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. These special attacks require the combination of both Mario and Luigi to execute an attack.
The timing and practicing these attacks is of significant importance while using these special attacks. In Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, special attacks are divided into two different categories:
Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Special Attacks
Bros. Attacks (Real World)
Bros. Attacks can be described as powerful attacks that Mario and Luigi can perform together.
In order to unlock these attacks, players will have to find ten attack pieces in the particular area. And like in the previous games, players are allowed to test these moves in the menu. Mario and Luigi have some exclusive attacks that only they can activate excluding Green/Red Shell which both of them can activate.

Keep on pressing A and B alternatively as the Mario produces the shell to thrown it onto the targets on some large distances.
Bye Bye Cannon

It is one of the most tricky attacks in the game and requires a lot of memory and practice. All you need to do is to memorize the sequence in which Mario and Luigi come out of the cannon. Just as they land on the enemy, hit A for Mario and B for Luigi. Doing it successfully will yield maximum damage.
