Gooper Blooper's first appearance is in Super Mario Sunshine in Ricco Harbor. Mario must stop the fiend to progress onward in the game. Although he is hidding under a pile of crates, Gooper Blooper reveals his location by leaving one of his tentacles in view.
After Mario removes the tentacle from Gooper Blooper, the giant Blooper uses his tentacles to try and defeat Mario. Mario must pull the tentacles so that they snap off and then he must pull the cork out of the Blooper's mouth, which causes ink to spray all over the Blooper and the surroundings. After pulling on his mouth twice, Gooper Blooper is defeated and lands in the sea.
Gooper Blooper is not defeated though, and he is fought in the same way as before upon the helicopter pad. When he is not sprayed by water, Goope Blooper spins while hitting the player with his tentacles. Once he is defeated for the final time in Ricco Harbor, he soars into the sky and crashes into the sea.
Gooper Blooper reappears in Noki Bay at the peak of a mountain, however, instead of crashing into the sea, he crashes into the mountainside.
Gooper Blooper appears in Mario Power Tennis as the opponent in the mini-game Gooper Blooper Volley. All of his tentacles hold a racket and the play must hit a tennis ball between them while avoiding the marked tiles.
Appearing as the fifth boss, Gooper Blooper is vulnerable to being attacked by Perry. After losing three health points, he uses Calm vibe to fall asleep to regain health. Peach must wake him up with Rage vibe to remove his remaining two health points.Poison Blooper minions try everything to stop Mario from reaching him. Gooper Blooper resided at Whitecap Beach behind a ship.
Unlike the rest of the bosses in this game, Gooper Blooper actually "claps" to the rhythm of its on battle theme. It's also the key to blocking its Rhythm Tentacle Smack attack. It also charages up Poison Goop for one turn then unleashes it on the next turn poisoning Mario and blinding him if he doesn't block it.
Gooper Blooper attacks to the rhythm of its theme. Mario could use this to block his multi-attack to lessen damage. Mario must do this for three more turns until Gooper Blooper charges up for the Poison Goop attack. Mario must then use his Sponge thing sticker to deflect the attack right back at Gooper Blooper and it will poison itself imparing its vision and causing him to take 30 damage each turn. Mario must use this opening to launch his strongest Stickers and use the Battle Spinner to take Gooper Blooper down for good.
