The three Blooper Racers

Blooper Racers[1] are a variety of Blooper that appears only in Ricco Harbor in Super Mario Sunshine. In this game, Mario must ride on one through an obstacle course run by a Pianta named the Big Daddy of Blooper-surfing, and in the harbor itself to get Red Coins. Every episode that Blooper Racers appear in is timed. They come in three colors, each affecting their abilities:

  • Green Blooper[2][3][4] - These Bloopers are slow, but easy to control.
  • Yellow Blooper[3] - These Bloopers have average speed and control.
  • Purple Blooper[2][3] (or Pink[4]) - These Bloopers are fast, but hard to control.

In Episode 2 of Ricco Harbor, Mario must complete an obstacle course in 45 seconds or less while riding on the Blooper Racer of his choice. Bumping into an obstacle or running out of time costs Mario a life. In Episode 6, Mario must ride on a Blooper to get Red Coins scattered over the water in 2 minutes or less. It is possible, albeit very difficult, to complete the episode without a Blooper Racer.[5] In Episode 10, Mario must repeat Episode 2, but with only 40 seconds to complete it rather than 45.
