“THE BLORBS! Mushroom Kingdom Marred by Mystery Malady! The Blorbs! It comes without warning! First, you balloon to blimp size! Then the rolling! You roll away! Oh, the horror of the blorbs! As of press time, the cause and cure are unknown... Day by day, the number of blorbed Toads swells... Seeing how grave the situation is, Princess Peach convenes an emergency meeting at her castle...”
The Blorbs is a mysterious disease that appears in the events of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. In the game, the disease spreads all over the Mushroom Kingdom and infects the Toads, causing them to grow large and round and rendering them mostly immobile. It is caused by Blorb Mushrooms that Fawful sold to several Toads, similar to how he sells the Vacuum Shroom to Bowser. The entire case of the Blorbs is wiped out by the Miracle Cure, which is created after Mario and Luigi find and merge all three Star Cures.
Before the Miracle Cure eliminated the disease, Blorbed Toads block several areas in Toad Town. Once the disease is cured, these areas are opened up to the player. A large percent of the infected Toads, including the one seen in the cutscene at the beginning of the game, are kept in one of the rooms of Toadley Clinic.
