Podoboo is a living fireball that jumps out of the lava in many of the fortresses and castles in many of the games in the Mario series. Debuting in Super Mario Bros., the Podoboo could only be evaded, as there was no way to defeat them. Invincible Mario would become the only way to defeat Podoboo in Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario World, the latter of which Podoboo started to appear in underground stages that featured lava.
The difficulty in defeating Podoboo would all change in New Super Mario Bros. Wii with the introduction of the Ice Flower and the Penguin Suit. Both items enable Mario to shoot Ice Balls, which are capable of extinguishing Podoboo's flame for 200 points apiece.
Podoboo have also made appearances in several other Mario games, including Mario Party and several of the role-playing games that Mario has starred in.
