Originally called Bloobers, the Bloopers have been in the Mario series ever since Super Mario Bros. They normally appeared in underwater areas and proved a nuisance to Mario due to their swimming pattern which proves to be annoying at times. Ever since their debut, the Bloopers have become a famous enemy from the Mario series appearing in racing games, sport games and even a party game. Other than their swimming abilities, they are sometimes shown to be able to shoot ink amongst other abilities.
