Growmebas copy themselves over and over. Just stomp on the real one to make them all disappear.
Tattle
That troublesome creature is a Growmeba. It can clone itself over and over again... Max HP is 2 and Attack is 1. If you defeat the main one, the clones will die... The primary one has slightly different moves and looks, so watch closely... If you don't want to bother, you could defeat them all with an item. There's also an enemy in Megaman 10 that's behaves very similarly to it.

A Growmeba sprite.

Growmebas are rare enemies in the Wii video game Super Paper Mario. They are only found in Gloam Valley (along with their Catch Card) and in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials. They look like dripping orange squares with a single round eye. Growmebas spawn clones of themselves in order to attack Mario and crew. Destroying the original Growmeba causes the clones to disappear as well. The original can be told apart by the concentric circles that appear and disappear in its eye (but not in the clones' eyes). Their name comes from "grow" (as its numbers grows), and "amoeba", a single-celled organism that can multiply at an intense rate.
