Pianta, Super Mario Sunshine

Gooper Blooper Breaks Out is the first episode of Ricco Harbor in Super Mario Sunshine. The episode's objective is to defeat Gooper Blooper, located at the far end of the level in the plaza.


To reach Gooper Blooper, the player has to climb onto the boat directly ahead of them. The Manholes in the stage currently blocked off by Crates, though the player will be able to use the Manholes once they destroy the crates blocking them. Upon climbing onto the deck of the boat, the player needs to then climb up to the smokestack at the stern. By using the smokestack for extra height, the player can Spin Jump and use the Hover Nozzle to reach the beam above and walk along it to reach the plaza ahead. Once at the plaza, the player will find several freight boxes with a tentacle sticking out of it. By grabbing it with B Button and pulling it out of the boxes, Gooper Blooper will break out and the battle will begin.

At first, Gooper Blooper will have his face covered in ink. Spraying the ink will make Gooper Blooper angry and he will attempt to attack Mario with his tentacles. Jumping on them followed by grabbing and pulling them will pull them off of Gooper Blooper, rendering that tentacle unusable. If all four tentacles are pulled off, Gooper Blooper will be unable to attack. Spraying Gooper Blooper's face clean and pulling on his mouth until it snaps back at him will deal damage to Gooper Blooper. Gooper Blooper will then spray ink around him, causing his face to become dirtied again, and he will grow back his tentacles. Additionally, Gooper Blooper can now shoot small balls of ink at Mario if he is out of range. Repeating the process once more will send Gooper Blooper flying into the water, rewarding the player with the Shine Sprite.
