Bubbas are big pink or orange fish (usually wearing sunglasses) that will eat Mario if he gets too near them after a while. They look and act very similar to Boss Bass from Super Mario Bros. 3. Bubba appears to be a species of Blurp. Related to them is the small Bub fish.


Super Mario 64

Two Bubbas appear in Tiny-Huge Island and they cannot be defeated similar to most aquatic enemies in Super Mario 64. If Mario is eaten, he will lose a life, regardless of his current health. In Super Mario 64 DS, they are replaced by Big Berthas.

Mario Party

Additionally, stepping on a Happening Space on Yoshi's Tropical Island, a gameboard in Mario Party, Bubba would eat Toad, switching Toad's and Bowser's position. Bubba lacks its trademark shades in this game, which makes it look more like Bub.

Mario Golf

In Mario Golf for the Nintendo 64, either a Bubba or Blurp will eat the ball if it lands in the water. They are also much smaller in this game.
