A Borp is a purple bush-like enemy with a frowning mouth, two teeth, and three pale yellow star-shaped flowers on its body. It appears in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and its 3DS remake. Their name is a pun on "burp." They are only encountered at Cavi Cape. Bowser can punch them for extra coins, but Mario and Luigi have to fight them. In battle, Borps attack by spitting out yellow blobs at the Mario Bros. However, the target of the attack is the opposite brother of the one who was initially telegraphed (for example: an attack telegraphed to Luigi will instead go to Mario.) Their attacks cannot be countered by jumping and hurt Mario and Luigi if they do so. The Borp's attacks are also capable of lowering their power if their attacks hit the Mario Brothers. These enemies are usually encountered in a group consisting of three or four Borps.

Borps reappear in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey, also appearing as enemies in the Bowser Jr.'s Journey mode. They are ranged troopers, and are weak to fire attacks from Fire Bros. and Fire Stalking Piranha Plants due to being plants.

Bowser Jr.'s Journey profile: Its burp bullets are strong in more ways than one. It's actually a plant, so fire attacks really burn.
