Podoboos (also known as Lava Bubbles) are uncommon enemies found throughout the Newer Super Mario Bros. series. These enemies make their debut in Formidable Fortress from Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are seen in most levels with lava.


Podoboos are orange bubbles of lava with black eyes.


Podoboos will jump out of lava in a set location to a set height. No matter how the player touches it, the player will be damaged. They cannot be defeated by fireballs from a Fire Flower.

Iceballs from an Ice Flower or Penguin Suit, hammers from a Hammer Suit, Super Stars, and Mega Mushrooms all instantly defeat Podoboos.
