Bloobers are enemies in Link's Awakening. They are directly based on the Blooper enemies (previously known as Bloobers) from the Mario series.
Bloobers are squid-like enemies that are encountered in an underwater passage of Catfish's Maw. Unlike Cheep-Cheeps, which slowly swim back and forth in a set path, Bloobers move in diagonal, lurching motions towards Link, making them harder to avoid. Bloobers only appear in one passageway leading to the dungeon's Nightmare Key, and always appear in pairs. Unlike their Mario counterparts, they can be dealt with easily using any weapon in Link's arsenal, with the Sword being the most immediately effective.
