Bloopers are enemies that have appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.
Bloopers are octopus-like enemies which are only found in the underwater sections of Catfish's Maw. Like several other enemies in this game, the Blooper is based off of a similar enemy in the Super Mario Bros games. Although they are very weak and can be defeated with one hit, they may be difficult to avoid if they ramming into you.
Unless they are coming at you, it may be best to just avoid them. Keep in mind that Bloopers are the fastest underwater enemy in the game. It is best to be below a blooper rather than above them, because they move upwards faster than they do downwards. When you are near a blooper, swing your Sword repeatedly to defeat it.

- "Resembling a cross between an octopus and a squid, Bloobers plague the deep waterways of Koholint Island. They mean no harm, but an involuntary reaction causes them to inflict a poisonous sting on anyone who touches them." — (The Great Hyrule Encyclopedia).
