Bloopers come in different sizes and colors, though the original variety shown in Super Mario Bros. is white and roughly the size of a Koopa Troopa. They possess varying numbers of tentacles (ranging from four to up to ten visible limbs) of various lengths, which help them move and are in some of their appearances used directly to attack the player.
