Big Lava Bubbles are larger versions of Lava Bubbles that first appeared in Mario Party.


Mario Party series[edit]

Mario Party / Mario Party 2[edit]

In Mario Party, giant Lava Bubbles only appear in the minigame Hot Rope Jump, where two of them are seen spinning a rope of smaller Lava Bubbles.

They reappear in Mario Party 2, in the same minigame, with the same role.

Mario Party 3[edit]

Giant Lava Bubbles reappear in Mario Party 3, only two of them are found in the minigame Hyper Hydrants. One player must pump the water, while the other player attempts to douse the flames that it shoots as much as possible to win the minigame. The giant Lava Bubble will disappear after the minigame ends.

Super Mario Maker / Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS[edit]

Big Lava Bubbles first appear under that name in Super Mario Maker and Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS. They can appear if the player puts a Super Mushroom on a normal Lava Bubble.

A single Big Lava Bubble appears in Paper Mario: Color Splash as a mini boss in Redpepper Crater. He's angry at Mario for breaking into his home and is accompanied by a Shy Guy that translates for him. In battle, he can attack by turning red and shooting out flames, causing damage to both Mario and the Shy Guy. He can also attack by flying at Mario, just like normal Lava Bubbles, doing 15 HP of damage. He can only be damaged by Ice Flowers, Hurlhammers, Things, and Iron Jumps.
