Bittacudas are enemies in Super Paper Mario. They appear only in Chapter 3-2, in the Tile Pool. Bittacudas are carnivorous salmon-pink fish, slightly bigger than Bowser. Their name is a portmanteau of "bit" and "barracuda," though they do not resemble their namesake fish. They are one of the few enemies in the game that can attack even when Mario Flips to 3D. Bittacudas swim toward Mario and co. when they spot them, but will eventually give up chase. Like most other underwater enemies in the game, they can be damaged through stomping, unlike in most other games.
They only appear during the final stretch of the level. When Big Blooper emerges from the bottom of the sea, two Bittacudas flee from it.
