Bloopers (also known as Bloobers in earlier games) are white squid-like beings that roam the water-infested areas of the Mushroom World, Sometimes even flying around the areas of the Mushroom World near water areas. Later games would give Bloopers a multitude of powers, including flight and the ability to expel ink and electricity.

Large Bloopers occasionally appear as bosses in various games, notable examples being King Calamari, Gooper Blooper and Big Blooper. Though usually depicted as antagonists, Blooper occasionally have other roles, such as items and as a playable character.

They are worth 1000 points if defeated. Unlike the white Bloopers, they can be jumped on, due to being outside.

Super Mario Bros. 3

Bloopers reappear in Super Mario Bros. 3. They act the same as they did in Super Mario Bros. and have similar-looking species called Blooper Nannies which guide their young around.

Super Mario Sunshine

These enemies yet make another appearance in Super Mario Sunshine and, this time, are able to go on land and spit goop at Mario. They are only found on land, but not underwater strangely. They disappear in a puff of smoke when falling in the water, despite being water creatures. They cannot be defeated by F.L.U.D.D., but are stunned temporarily by him and release a coin when Mario jumps on them as they become defeated.

A new sub-species, Jumping Blooper, appears in this game. Bloopers are also only found in Noki Bay and Ricco Harbor.

New Super Mario Bros.

Bloopers reappear in New Super Mario Bros. where they act the same as usual and are only found in World 3-3.

Super Mario Galaxy

Bloopers yet make another appearance in Super Mario Galaxy and behave the same as usual, but, when chasing Mario, they swim in an irregular sort of way. They cannot be jumped on, but can be defeated with a Koopa Shell or a spin. They release ink when attacking Mario. They appear in Buoy Base Galaxy and Deep Dark Galaxy.

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Bloopers appear in New Super Mario Bros. Wii and act the same as usual, but have a new tactic; they hide in pipes and instantly come out when the player is coming. They also are immune to ice as they immediately break free from the ice when shot at them. They are found in World 4-4 and World 8-4.

Mario Kart series

The Blooper appears as an item in both Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Wii. When a character gets this item from an Item Box, it floats in front of the opponents and dispels ink to distort their view. During online play, this item is considered a poor item to receive as many players can drive considerably well with the ink.

Blooper also appears in Mario Kart 7, Mario Kart 8, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe as an item in the game, acting the same with no differences from the previous Mario Kart games.

Paper Mario series

Paper Mario

In Paper Mario, when Mario and his party traverse the Toad Town Tunnels, they find three different Bloopers. In the three locations where Mario finds the bloopers, however, doing so may make him explore the sewers later on in the game. The bloopers, regardless of where they were fought, are always fought in the same order. A small, regular-sized Blooper is the first blooper Mario and his party face. The second is a larger, Electro Blooper, which as the name suggests, uses electric powers. The third and final Blooper is a gargantuan Super Blooper which during the fight makes baby Bloopers to aid it in battle. Each Blooper's location, upon the defeat of each respective Blooper, rewards Mario. One of these locations will give Mario access to Warp Pipes that lead to Goomba Village, Dry Dry Outpost, and Koopa Village respectively. Another location will give Mario access to a Warp Pipe leading to Yoshi Village. The other location will give Mario the Sleepy Stomp badge.
