Tubba Blubba's Heart, as its name implies, is the heart belonging to Tubba Blubba. It is red and hairy, and is the body part that Bowser removed from Tubba Blubba in order for him to become invincible. He appears as one of the main villains of Chapter 3 in Paper Mario.


Hiding in the Windy Mill, the heart dictates the actions of Tubba Blubba as though he was a puppet. However, Mario discovers Tubba Blubba's secret - his heart - thanks to the key he finds in Tubba Blubba's Castle. After fleeing from the castle and making his way to Windy Mill, Mario found the hiding heart under the windmill. The heart accuses Mario of exposing his secrets, and attacks him since he could care less about Mario's attempts of disapproval. However, he was severely hurt by Mario in the battle...

After the Heart's HP reaches five or lower, he flees the battle, yelling "Owwwweeee! Oh, I'm hurting! I have to get out of here!" Mario subsequently chases the Heart, and upon his exiting of Windy Mill, Tubba Blubba, who have apparently broken through the boos' attempts to block him inside his mansion, and his Heart reunite, but makes the main body lose the invincibility this way.

Tubba Blubba's Heart is seen in the parade at the end of the game, chasing his body when three Boos carry Tubba Blubba away.

In Paper Mario

In battle, Tubba Blubba's Heart only attacks in two ways. It's first and main attack is to simply charge into Mario that deals 6 damage. His second attack involves him charging up then unleashing tiny hearts onto Mario that will squeeze him and deal a massive 12 damage.

Due to the heart's lack of defense, Bow can deal high damage to the heart suing Smack without wasting FP and use Outta Sight to help Mario dodge Tubba Blubba's Heart's Swarm Squeeze attack. Since Tubba Blubba's Heart is on a small pedestal, Mario can hurt it with Jump or Hammer Throw attacks.

  • Due to its massive health and very high damage compared to Tubba Blubba, its speculated by fans that the heart is chapter 3's true main boss.

Max HP: 50, Attack Power: 6, Defense Power: 0 He has a terrible attack, so hide when he tells you he's about to unleash it. This attack will take away 12 HP! Whoa! Try to beat him before he can do his huge attack again. Trust me, it's dangerous. This is Bow's turn to shine!"
