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.
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.
Mecha-Bloopers have 84 hit points, 84 power, 90 defense, and 20 speed, giving 92 Experience upon their defeat along with 12 coins, plus a 1-Up Mushroom (129 in 1000 cases), and/or a Red Pepper (2581 in 10000 cases).
In the 3DS version, they shoot missiles that have shark faces, rather than actual bullet bills, but this is a cosmetic difference. They are also made somewhat tougher, having 130 hit points, 110 power, 88 defense, and 38 speed, instead giving 100 Experience upon their defeat and dropping 40 coins, along with maybe a Super Mushroom and/or a Wellness Wear.
