That's a Swampire. It's a feared health-sucker that hides in the darkness. Max HP is 20, Attack is 6, and Defense is 0. It sucks health from its prey to add to its own HP. And that…totally grosses me out like you wouldn't believe. If you let it feast on you, its HP will get really high. Focus your attacks on it!


The Swampire is a green version of the Swooper and the strongest of its species in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Its name is a portmanteau of the words "Swooper" and "vampire". Swampires hide in the darkness, and can suck Mario's health and add it to their own. Their coloration is very similar to the Swoopers from Super Mario World. Swampires have extremely high HP, as well as high attack power. Equipping the Zap Tap badge or using a Volt Shroom prevent Swampires from doing any harm to Mario and/or his active partner.

Swoopulas are lesser cousins of Swampires, and act similar to Fuzzies.
