Balloon Fight Wiki

Giant Bubbles are a common item in the Balloon Fight series.


In Balloon Fight's modes A and B, as well as Vs. Balloon Fight, Giant Bubbles appear when a Balloon Bird is knocked into the water. They are worth 500 points. In Mode C, however, they occasionally rise up from the sea and will freeze time when popped. In Balloon Kid, they act exactly the same way.

In Nintendo Land: Balloon Trip Breeze, Giant Bubbles will appear when Balloon Birds are knocked into the water, but popping it will not freeze time. Giant Bubbles also will occasionally rise from the ocean carrying items such as Erasers, Time Stoppers, Invincibility Stars, Capsules, and Question Marks. A large group of Giant Bubbles will come out of the ocean when the rain stops, with longer storms causing more bubbles to rise up when they end.


They are large bubbles, about the size of the player. In Balloon Trip Breeze, they will occasionally contain items. In the original games, the bubbles have a blue outer skin. though they are colorless in Balloon Trip Breeze.
