As Blooper Mario, he can swim easily in water and shoot ink. After getting the Blooper Suit, Mario's swimming style is changed to that of a real Blooper and can swim faster. The power of shooting ink bestowed upon Mario will range from a normal cloud of ink to a very thick, irregular cocoon-like shape immobilizing an underwater enemy. While in possession of the suit on land it will still have the power to shoot ink in two different ways:
- To squirt ink and blind an enemy.
- Creating a puddle of ink to slow down an enemy.
