Clubbas are lazy Spike soldiers that wield spiked clubs similar in appearance to an ordinary Spike's ball. They only appear in the Paper Mario series. Their design seems to mostly be based on Spikes' artwork from Super Mario Bros. 3, but with faces more similar to their designs in the early Yoshi games.
The first Clubbas appear in Paper Mario, where they are commonly seen as guards in the castle of Tubba Blubba. Only a few of Tubba Blubba's Clubba henchmen actively guard the castle, and if Mario and his team decide to, they can simply sneak by sleeping Clubbas, who only wake up if the team moves quickly. In battle, they walk over and swing their maces down on Mario. After completing Chapter 3, all enemies abandon Tubba Blubba's Castle except for one Clubba in the first floor east wing. He apparently fell asleep and got left behind and when talked to, he wakes up and realizes this before falling asleep again.
If the player chooses a Clubba as one of the things Mario fears in the Princess Peach intermission after the Tubba Blubba quest, Kammy Koopa summons one to guard a Treasure Chest in the Shy Guy's Toy Box. Later in the game, after Mario and his crew defeat Huff N. Puff and rescue the sixth Star Spirit, a single Clubba appears as a sleeping guard in Peach's Castle, sleeping while it was supposed to be guarding the door to the hallway where Mario and Bowser faced off at the beginning of the game and will do so again in the climax. Princess Peach, using her Sneaky Parasol, turns into this Clubba to relieve a Koopatrol of his duties at that door, as well as to proceed further to the top of the castle before being caught again by Kammy Koopa.
Super Paper Mario
Clubbas appear again in Super Paper Mario, where they appear in all the surface areas of the Gap of Crag. They have very high HP in this game. Once more, they are often found napping and can be avoided by the player's character. A Clubba can also be fought against in Castle Bleck as an optional enemy, like in Paper Mario. There was also a very brief mentioning of Tubba Blubba by Francis. According to him, Tubba Blubba stars in his own TV series called The Blubbening. A subspecies of Clubba, the Dark Clubba, also appears in this game.
