Flarets are round fireballs that Bowletta shoots out of her mouth in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They are not living species, but appear on the battlefield as targets. If they are not defeated in a timely manner, Bowletta reabsorbs them and heals herself by 35 HP (99 in the remake). Sometimes, Bowletta does not reabsorb some of the Flarets and leaves a few on the battlefield. Flarets are healed with Firebrand and Thunderhand attacks, and any jump attacks (with the exception of Advanced Splash Bros.) will hurt Mario and Luigi, so they can only be defeated with hammer attacks. After using her Fire Breath attack, any Flarets produced by Bowletta that are still on the battlefield will be destroyed.

In the remake, their graphic is more defined and resembles a polyhedron, instead of a circle with a honeycomb pattern.
