Bubble Mario[1] is the form that Mario takes when he uses a Bubble Flower in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. While in this form, the player can blow bubbles that follow a straight path unless they get drawn to an enemy. Bubbles that hit enemies trap and transform them into a coin. Unlike Fireballs, bubbles can go through walls and defeat enemies that normally cannot be defeated such as Dry Bones. The player can also jump off of them.[2] However, the bubbles cannot defeat large or spiky enemies. These abilities are inspired by those of the Bubble Baby Yoshis in New Super Mario Bros. U.[3]

Bubble Mario wears a pink hat and shirt with red overalls, similar to the overalls given to Fire Mario and Ice Mario. Bubble Luigi is the same, except his overalls turn green. Unlike Fire Peach, Bubble Peach and Daisy's colors of their panniers, collar, and frills are bright pink and yellow respectively, matching their regular dress color instead of their signature pink and orange color respectively while also still having their dress and heels purple. Bubble Yellow Toad, Blue Toad, and Toadette's colors are the same as their corresponding Fire forms, except that the red in their caps, vests, and pants are recolored to pink and purple respectively.

Bubble Mario's colors closely resemble Luigi's pink alternate color from the Super Smash Bros. series, which is referred to as "Strawberry Luigi" on the original Super Smash Bros. website.[4]

Profiles[edit]

  • Tips from the November 7, 2023 article on nintendo.com:
    • American English:
      Bubble, bubble, toil and wonder! This transformation is ideal for taking down enemies and performing tricky jumps.
      • True to its name, this power is all about bubbles. You’re able to make bubbles that home in on certain enemies and instantly defeat them.
      • If you’re feeling extra fancy, use these bubbles as makeshift platforms. Bubbles move in a straight line in front of you, so some careful planning and jumping will get you far … literally. Just remember that bubbles will pop once you jump on them.
      • Make bubbles while doing a spin jump to release bubbles to the right and left of you at the same time. This can be handy when you’re surrounded by enemies.[5][6]
    • French (Canada):
      Cette transformation est parfaite pour venir à bout d’ennemis et essayer des sauts difficiles.
      • Fidèle à son nom, ce pouvoir mise tout sur les bulles. Vous pouvez faire des bulles qui suivent certains ennemis et en viennent à bout instantanément.
      • Si vous voulez plus oser, utilisez ces bulles pour des plateformes improvisées. Les bulles se déplacent en ligne droite devant vous, alors un saut au bon moment pourrait vous mener loin... littéralement. Souvenez-vous tout simplement que les bulles éclatent une fois que vous sautez dessus.
      • Créez des bulles en effectuant un saut tournoyant pour lâcher des bulles à droite et à gauche en même temps. Cela peut être très utile si des ennemis vous entourent.[7]
    • Portuguese (Brazil):
      Bolhas, mais bolhas e ação fenomenal! Essa transformação é ideal para derrotar inimigos e executar saltos desafiadores
      • Como o próprio nome já diz, este poder tem tudo a ver com bolhas. Você pode soltar bolhas que atingem certos inimigos derrotando-os instantaneamente.
      • Você também pode usar essas bolhas como plataformas improvisadas. As bolhas se movem em linha reta a sua frente, então um bom planejamento e saltos bem pensados te levarão longe... literalmente. Mas lembre-se, as bolhas irão estourar assim que você pisar nelas.
      • Solte as bolhas enquanto dá uma pirueta para liberá-las por todos os lados ao mesmo tempo. Isso pode ser muito útil quando você estiver cercado por inimigos.[8]
    • Spanish (Latin America):
      ¡Jabón, agua y aire! ¡Una combinación maravillosa y burbujeante! Esta transformación es ideal para vencer a enemigos y realizar saltos difíciles.
      • Tal y como su nombre lo indica, este potenciador tiene que ver con burbujas. Podrás crear burbujas que atraen a ciertos enemigos y vencerlos instantáneamente.
      • Y si quieres impresionar a todos, usa estas burbujas como plataformas provisionales. Las burbujas se mueven en línea recta delante de ti, así que para poder llegar lejos es necesario un poco de planeación y buenos saltos... literalmente. Recuerda que las burbujas también estallarán luego de que saltes sobre ellas.
      • Si creas burbujas al realizar un salto con giro, podrás lanzar burbujas tanto a la derecha como a la izquierda al mismo tiempo. Esto puede ser muy conveniente cuando te rodeen los enemigos.[9]
