Komboos are walking giant kelp-like creatures with eyes found in the Lake Kingdom and Seaside Kingdom of Super Mario Odyssey. Their name is likely a reference to kombu, a variety of seaweed used extensively in Japanese cuisine. They are normally found in chasms in Lake Lamode and Bubblaine, and if Mario swims to their spawning point, they will emerge and start walking in a swaying motion towards Mario with their four legs so their bodies can hit him accordingly, and attempt to swarm Mario. Mario can simply throw Cappy at them to take them out; however, they will continue to respawn from the same position. They can be found in green, yellow, and purple. Komboos also cannot be captured.
In the Super Mario Mash-up in Minecraft, Kelp is replaced by Komboos.
