Lava Bubbles (sometimes called Podoboos or Sparkies) are living fireballs that emerge from lava. They are commonly depicted as a large fireball with two black eyes or also as only 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 most games, Lava Bubbles are nearly invincible, and can only be destroyed by using a Super Star, Gold Flower, Hammer Suit, Penguin Suit, or an Ice Flower.
