Bloat, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Bloat is a sailor appearing in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake. His name comes from the word meaning "to become swollen with fluid," which is appropriate; after drinking excessive amounts of Chuckola Cola, he became incredibly obese and somehow managed to wedge himself stuck in a crack in the S.S. Chuckola. His crew mates refer to him as an "Ostaf" (which is "Fatso" backwards), and he hiccups and belches repeatedly in his dialogue.

Mario and Luigi are offered a Beanstar piece in exchange for freeing Bloat from the wall. Using dynamite, the duo blasts Bloat out from the crack, also ripping a hole in the ship that causes sand from Teehee Valley to pour in. The force of the sand pouring inside the ship pushes it into the sea, where it proceeds to crash into a rock, sinking the S.S. Chuckola into Oho Ocean.
