Planet Blobule is the setting of Chapter 4-2 in Super Paper Mario. The planet is the point from which the Outer Limits may be accessed.


Blobule is a small planet that is mostly barren, though some plant life is seen. Animal life is also present on the planet, such as Longators and Beepboxers. Planet Blobule has low gravity, meaning anyone on the planet gains an increased jump ability. It also evidently has a very thin if existent atmosphere, as the stars are fully visible; despite this, the heroes do not require their space helmet in order to explore the planet. The only known race on the planet are the Blobules, which barely populate the surface.

Chapter 4-2: A Paper Emergency[edit]

Storyline text

Mario and the gang cruised through space, led by the young alien named Squirps.

What kind of creature was it, anyway? And what was with those weird noises?

Whenever confronted with a question, it would say, "Squirps is Squirps, SQUAAK!"

All they could do was trust that he knew where the Pure Heart was and follow him.

They were doing just that when something appeared ahead of them.

It was a teeny-tiny planet.

Squirps and the outhouse

Squirps leads the heroes to Planet Blobule as they hunt for the Pure Heart. He says that this planet holds the entrance to a "Space Byway", their next destination. Unfortunately, he instantly forgets where the entrance is, then has to go to the bathroom. The outhouse nearby is occupied by someone who cannot come out, as there is no toilet paper. The heroes then embark on a search to help the occupant.

The first area of the level has many high mountains, which can be traversed due to the planet's low gravity. Many Longators are found here. There is also a locked door and a short totem with a dimensional rift above it. At the end of the area is a door covered by Brick Blocks that must be destroyed to continue. The next area has a Save Block. The nearby mountain is too tall to jump and must be passed through using Slim. This area is similar to the first, but the mountains are more difficult to traverse, often requiring Mario to find paths through the mountains in 3-D. Enemies here include Boing-Oings and Choppas. There are also many pipes here, though they lead nowhere, except a hidden one that leads to a small area with nothing but some coins. There is a door in this area that leads to a house inhabited by an alien named Blollop. About halfway through the area is a door leading to a horde of Hooligons and another alien house, this one inhabited by Blarfle. This area can be completely bypassed in favor of another door.

The second door leads to an area filled with Fuzzies and Beepboxers. This area contains a Mega Star. Through the next door are more Beepboxers. Space Food can be found here. The house of an elder alien named Blappy is found here. Blappy will sell the heroes an Ancient Clue for a different price depending on how many times his offer is refused. The clue gives a hint as to where the Space Bypass is and is also used as toilet paper for the outhouse occupant.

After journeying back to the beginning of the level, the heroes give the occupant toilet paper. They are revealed to be a Pixl named Fleep. While Squirps uses the restroom, the heroes recruit Fleep, who is able to reveal hidden items in dimensional rifts. The heroes use Fleep on a rift above the aforementioned totem to gain a Door Key that unlocks the previously seen locked door.

The final area is a short stretch containing a multitude of Fuzzies and the Star Block.

Mario and Luigi return here much later on in the game while chasing Dimentio through the seven worlds.


Menu description[edit]

  • "Why is there an outhouse on the edge of the universe? We bought an Ancient Clue from old Blappy. We used it to free Fleep from outhouse imprisonment."
