Huff N. Puff, Paper Mario

Huff N. Puff is a large cloud monster of the Puff species appearing in the game Paper Mario. He is found in the sixth chapter of the game, Dark Days in Flower Fields, in the area Flower Fields preventing the sun from shining over the lands.



Bowser assigned Huff N. Puff to guard the sixth Star Spirit, Klevar, by using the Star Rod to turn him into a Ruff Puff beast.

Mario and his comrades, with the help from their new teammate Lakilester, destroy his Puff-Puff Machine, defeat him, save Klevar, and bring peace back to Flower Fields. His base of operations is Cloudy Climb.

After Huff N. Puff is defeated, he explodes, sending several Tuff Puffs flying in all directions. In spite of this, he does make an appearance in the credits during the parade, being shrunk by the Yoshi kids and chased by Gourmet Guy, who has a knife and fork and wants to eat him.

Huff N. Puff appears also in volume 26 of Super Mario-Kun. Huff N. Puff is seen to be enjoying himself before Mario and his partners attack him. Huff N. Puff first punches Mario. Then, he causes sharks and Bob-ombs to rain on Mario and his partners. Then, he causes a Super Earthquake. Lakilester retaliates with Spiny Surge, but Huff N. Puff creates Tuff Puffs that latch on Mario. Unexpectedly, however, Luigi, Wario, and Yoshi jump in. Luigi sucks in the Tuff Puffs with his Poltergust 3000. Wario then tickles Huff N. Puff so Mario can land a blow on Huff N. Puff (and Wario accidentally) with his hammer. In Super Mario Kun 'Huff N. Puff' have teeth

This is Huff N. Puff. He's a giant cloud monster. His thunder attack is very dangerous. If you don't defend, you'll take massive damage. When you attack Huff N. Puff, little clouds called Tuff Puffs come out. Their number is based on the amount of damage you do. If you leave the Tuff Puffs, Huff N. Puff will swallow them up and restore his HP. You need to use smart tactics to beat this guy, Mario.

Huff N. Puff attacks by Body Slamming, blowing wind, and using thunder and lightning strikes. When his HP reaches as low as five, he will then begin attacking by creating earthquakes.

If Huff N. Puff is struck with any attack, he will spawn several Tuff Puffs. The number of Tuff Puffs is equal to the amount of damage done. These Tuff Puffs provide backup while battling Mario and his comrades. Huff N. Puff can inhale the Tuff Puffs to restore HP. They also assist Huff N. Puff with his earthquake attack, increasing the damage caused depending on how many Tuff Puffs join the attack.

Lady Bow and Lakilester are great choices for battling Huff N. Puff. When he prepares for his lightning strike, Mario can use Bow's Outta Sight move. If she's ultra-ranked, she can use her fan smack which causes great damage. Lakilester can use his Cloud Nine move to protect Mario from massive damage for a short time, and he can use Spiny Surge to attack the Tuff Puffs as well as Huff N. Puff with considerable damage. Watt is useless for this battle, however, since Huff N. Puff will primarily absorb the electricity from Watt's attacks, causing no effect, although her Turbo Charge ability attack boost still applies since it's not considered electrical damage.

Moves HP Drain (2)
These are the Tuff Puffs that break off when you damage Huff N. Puff. Tuff Puffs will fly over and attack you directly. You have to shake them off using the action command or they'll keep on damaging you. Huff N. Puff will swallow the Tuff Puffs to restore his HP, so think carefully when attacking. You can beat the Tuff Puffs easily by attacking all enemies.

Tuff Puffs are weaker versions of Ruff Puffs that are knocked off from the much larger Huff N. Puff. The Tuff Puffs provide backup while Huff N. Puff is battling Mario and his comrades, and attack collectively as one unit by draining two HP from Mario with each use of their HP Drain move. Ten Tuff Puffs can only surround Huff N. Puff; others will just disappear if ten are already surrounding him.

The player must repeatedly tap the A button to tear them off, similar to the action command for the Jungle Fuzzy. In addition, Huff N. Puff can suck them back up, and restore one HP for every small Tuff Puff and two HP for every large Tuff Puff. All of the Tuff Puffs are defeated automatically when Huff N. Puff himself is destroyed.

Although the Tuff Puffs were once part of Huff N. Puff, they still refer to him as their master.
