A Pooka in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS
|Series||Dig Dug, Pac-Man|
|First appearance||Dig Dug (1982)|
Pookas are common enemies from the Dig Dug series. They are balloon-like enemies with goggles and wind-up feet. In their game of origin, they can easily be defeated with a few pumps of the main character's (known as Taizo Hori) air hose. Pookas frequently appear in the Pac-Man series as well despite their origin.
In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Pookas appear as enemies in Smash Run. They hop around aimlessly, only pushing the player back if they connect. They swell up when attacked, and take a few hits to fully defeat. They then leave a popping effect that does slight damage to other Smash Run enemies and causes an exploding chain reaction when near other Pookas. Hoards of them spawn as one of the events in Smash Run. Pac-Man also has the chance of a Pooka appearing in his Namco Roulette Taunt.
