The Mecha-Blooper is an enemy type that can be found in certain parts of Oho Ocean (more specifically that area's seabed in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They are only found in battles with Cheep-Cheeps, Puffer-Cheeps, Spiny Cheep-Cheeps, and/or Starkisses. As their name implies, Mecha-Boopers are robots designed to resemble the standard Blooper, but instead of normal tentacles, Bullet Bills poke from the robot's bottom, with their colour being desaturated somewhat.

In Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga/Bowser's Minions

Mecha-Bloopers only attack by firing their Bullet Bills towards the Mario brothers. This can be avoided by jumping. Stomping a Bullet Bill counts as countering the attack for the purposes of Badges that are affected by counters. However, if it had fired its Bullet Bills prior, the Mecha-Blooper must spend a turn to reload. Luigi's Thunderhand can fry these enemies' circuits, dealing more damage to them. Attacking the Mecha-Bloopers incites their wrath, giving them an extra turn to fire their Bullet Bills if they have any.

In the 3DS version, they shoot missiles that have shark faces, rather than actual bullet bills, but this is a cosmetic difference.
