The Blooper is a recurring enemy type in the Super Mario Series and debuted back in 1985 in underwater stages of the first Super Mario Bros. They returned in almost all later Super Mario games including Super Mario Bros. 2 and 3 and Super Mario 3D World on the WiiU (2014) as one of their latest appearances.

They were also in most of the Mario Kart games since Mario Kart DS and used as an item there. In Mario Party 8, a Blooper became a playable character for the first time.

The Bloopers are squid similar creatures mostly found in the oceans but they can also survive on land and sometimes moves through the air like they do underwater.
