The Barribad is an enemy in Super Paper Mario. It is encountered in the Whoa Zone. Its name is derived from "barrier", referring to its method of protection, and is also a pun on "very bad". It appears similar to, and may even be related to the Yux species from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The Barribad projects an impenetrable barrier around itself when Mario, Princess Peach, Bowser, or Luigi approaches, and shoots rings of energy at them. However, by flipping to 3D, the player can go around the barrier, switch to 2D, and defeat it. An alternative is to use pixl Barry, which will reflect the energy back at them and destroy them. Another way to defeat it is to use Fleep to daze it for a few moments, then whale on the Barribad before it pulls itself together. An another way to defeat it is to use Bowser to breathe fire at it.
