A Poison Blooper is a type of Blooper that appears in the Paper Mario series, first appearing in Paper Mario: Sticker Star. They have a purple tint, three dark spots on their head, and a spot on each of their arms that distinguish them from normal Bloopers.


Paper Mario: Sticker Star[edit]

Poison Bloopers are standard enemies in World 3, and began appearing there after Gooper Blooper came into possession of the violet Royal Sticker. While World 3 is poisoned, they can be found in the background of The Bafflewood as well. In addition to standard fights, four Poison Bloopers can also be fought in Holey Thicket; two of them hold the last Wiggler Segment hostage, while two others attack the Traveling Toad during the sidequest involving him, regardless of if the world's boss is defeated.

Poison Bloopers can attack by slowly bobbing towards Mario and then slamming into him, or else squirting poisonous ink to inflict the poison status. This version of Poison is unique in that it also hinders Mario's aim, causing his attacks to miss. After using the latter attack, Poison Bloopers dry up, and Mario can also dry them out by using a Fire Flower sticker. When a Poison Blooper becomes dry, it will attempt to lunge at Mario and absorb the poison, returning it to its normal state.

After defeating Gooper Blooper at Whitecap Beach, all the Poison Bloopers disappear, with the exception of the two attacking the Traveling Toad if they have not been fought; Snifits or Shy Guys now appear in certain battles instead of Poison Bloopers.

Paper Mario: Color Splash[edit]

Poison Bloopers return in Paper Mario: Color Splash, only appearing in Plum Park. There are only five of them, and all are found hovering over a bridge above a pool of poison. Once Mario starts to cross the bridge, the Bloopers try to close in on him. Unlike their appearance in Paper Mario: Sticker Star, these Poison Bloopers act identically to standard Bloopers in combat, and even drop regular Blooper Enemy Cards upon defeat. After defeating Petea Piranha and wringing out the Teapot, the water is cleared of poison, and the Poison Bloopers become normal Bloopers.
