“Bloobloobloobloop! (Hey, land freaks! How'd you like a tentacle sandwich?!)”
Big Blooper is a boss who fights the protagonists in Super Paper Mario, during Chapter 3-2 (in the Tile Pool). His theme is a remix of the underwater music from Super Mario Bros. 3. He shares a slight resemblance to Gooper Blooper.
This gigantic Blooper blocks Mario, Bowser, and Princess Peach from moving on to Fort Francis. There are a few options for offense against this monster. The player may jump on the tentacles when they are sticking up out of the water. The player may also use Thudley to ground-pound the tentacles or use Bowser's fire breath to singe them. The fiery-breath may be the safer choice, but takes longer. Slamming or burning the blue tentacles makes the more-sensitive red tentacles bob upward with more frequency. It is a good idea to slam exposed blue tentacles across the bottom of the screen, but the player will lose Heart Points if they miss.
Defeating Big Blooper doesn't earn the player any points, and the giant squid isn't killed by the encounter. If the player enters the area where the giant Blooper's tentacles come out of the floor and ceiling, Big Blooper can be tattled this way using Tippi or Tiptron.
