Paper Jam description At the top of each jump, press either A or B to blow up the balloon. The better your timing, the bigger the balloon will get. The timing gets harder with each jump. Pump that balloon and let it fly!

Balloon Blast is one of Luigi's Bros Attacks in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. It costs 9 BP and is given to Luigi once the player clears the Skyjinks with Nabbit mission for the first time.

After initiating the attack, Mario and Luigi will run into the foreground. Luigi will take out a balloon and seesaw, with the bros jumping on each end of said seesaw. The player then has to press either A Button or B Button when Mario or Luigi are high in the air to make them pound down on the seesaw, at which point the other bro will be flung upwards and has to do likewise. The higher the point which the bros pound from, the bigger the balloon gets in the background before it eventually pops.

At this point, smaller balloons will start raining down from the sky and popping on top of enemies, doing damage for every balloon that pops.

For an Excellent rating, the player must make sure the balloon is at its biggest when it pops. The balloon is the right size when it cannot entirely fit on the screen.
