Tubba Blubba is a character and the main boss of Chapter 3 in Paper Mario. He was an invincible powerhouse that inhabits a large mansion to the very east of Gusty Gulch.


Tubba Blubba is a large purple Clubba. He has much darker eyes with orange pupils and orange hair. He also has a spiny shell and a white patch on his chest.


Chapter 3: The "Invincible" Tubba Blubba

Tubba Blubba is first seen in Gusty Gulch where he eats a Boo right in front of Mario. After that, he heads back into his castle with Mario and Bow following behind him. Tubba Blubba is seen again wandering in the halls thinking someone is there. Mario manages to put the slip on Tubba Blubba with Bow's Outta Sight move and Mario heads into his room. Tubba Blubba also heads into his room worried that someone is in his castle and also worried about angering Bowser because of the lost Star Spirit. Tubba Blubba then decides to take a nap while Mario finds a key named Yakkey who explains he leads to Tubba Blubba's weakness. However, Yakkey violently screams waking up Tubba Blubba and starts a frantic chase all the way back to Windy Mill. Moments later, Tubba Blubba's Heart reunites with Tubba Blubba and they fight Mario once more. However, Tubba Blubba is easily beaten and releases all the Boos he has ever eaten. He then runs off crying saying he doesn't want to fight strong guys like Mario anymore.


During the first encounter, Tubba Blubba is invicible and Mario should always run from battle if he ever encounters him. In battle, Tubba Blubba attacks mainly by pounding his fist on the ground slamming Mario for pretty high damage. After he reunites with his heart, Tubba Blubba his much weaker and, if lucky, Mario can defeat him on the very first turn.


  • Body Slam: Tubba Blubba leaps down onto Mario, dealing high damage.
  • Mega Punch: Tubba Blubba uses this fist attack on Mario that can deal high damage as well.
