Not to be confused with Lubba.

Wubbas are lime green-colored blob-like creatures made of a goo-like substance with eyes in Super Mario Bros. Wonder. They appear prominently in a level named after them, An Uncharted Area: Wubba Ruins, where they are found near goo that can be ploughed through by Konks. Their English name comes from the onomatopoeic sound of jiggly movement.[1]

Wubbas tend to emerge from goo-filled cracks in the ground and ceiling. During normal gameplay, they are unable to stick to surfaces, and those that emerge from the ceiling will promptly fall down, though some can be seen on walls and ceilings in the Fungi Mines overworld. If a Wubba comes into contact with the side of a body of goo, it will enter the goo and travel through horizontally.

The player can transform into a Wubba form via a Wonder Effect. Unlike the enemy Wubbas, this transformation can Ground Pound, traverse walls and ceilings. This form is larger than normal Wubbas, but shrinks when takes damage.
