Lava Bubbles (バブル), sometimes called Podoboos, Sparkies, Spark Spooks or simply Bubbles, are enemy characters from the Mario series.

Character description

Lava Bubbles first appeared in Super Mario Bros., as fire balls that would jump out of the lava in simple patterns in an attempt to burn Mario or Luigi whenever the plumber tried to jump over them. In this game, they are invincible and not even a Super Star can defeat them, and only appear in Castles.

They are commonly depicted as a large fireball with two black eyes, or as simply a large fireball. Lava Bubbles mainly appear in the Mario platformers but occasionally appear in several Mario sub-series, such as the Mario Party series, the Mario Kart series and the Paper Mario series.

In Super Smash Flash 2

In Super Smash Flash 2, the Lava Bubbles appear in Bowser's Castle as a background character. They jump out of the lava, then return back to it in simple patterns, exactly like in the Mario series.
