The Goldfish Bowl is an item in the game Super Paper Mario. Pook gives the Goldfish Bowl to Mario in Flipside because Mario manages to find a better spot for Captain Gills the goldfish to stay in. After Mario frees the goldfish, the bowl can be used as a Helmet so Mario and co. can breathe in space.
