A Malibut is an undersea enemy encountered in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Their name is a pun on the halibut, although Malibuts are actually a type of octopus as opposed to a fish.

Always found alongside Cheep-Cheeps, Mecha-Bloopers and Starkisses, Malibuts attack one of three ways. The first comes in a form of small yellow-green bubbles which can be jumped over. If the Malibut tilts before attacking, however, it will spit out a large bubble, which must be hit with a Hammer and if this attack is not counterd with the hammer, it may get Mario or Luigi dizzy. The last type of attack comes if the Malibut is hit. When struck with any attack, an ! is above it and the Malibut will retaliate by throwing one or two pillows at the offender. These pillows must be hammered away to avoid damage.
