Clubbas are Tubba Blubba's main security guards for his castle in Gusty Gulch. They are fairly strong and are very, very lazy. Near Tubba Blubba's room is a room filled with sleeping Clubbas. If Mario walks slowly past them, they won't wake up and will continue to snore away. Some of them are illiterate and have little hygiene as implied by Kammy Koopa. This is discovered by Peach disguising herself as a sleeping Clubba using her Sneaky Parasol. One part of the game a Clubba was sent to guard a treasure chest in the Shy Guy's Toy Box. In Super Paper Mario, some Clubbas can be seen in the Gap of Crag and also Castle Bleck. Many can be found grouped in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials.
Paper Mario Edit
The first Clubbas appeared in Paper Mario, where they were commonly seen guards in the castle of Tubba Blubba, himself a monstrous Clubba. Only a few of Tubba Blubba's Clubba henchmen actively guard the castle, and if Mario so wished, he can simply sneak by sleeping Clubbas, who only wake up if Mario moved quickly. After completing Chapter 3, all enemies abandon Tubba Blubba's Castle except for one Clubba in the first floor east wing. He apparently fell asleep and got left behind and when talked to, he wakes up and realize this before falling asleep again.
If the player chooses a Clubba as one of the things Mario fears in a Princess Peach intermission, Kammy Koopa summons one to guard a Treasure Chest in the Shy Guy's Toy Box. Later in Paper Mario, a single Clubba appears as a sleeping guard in Princess Peach's Castle; sleeping while it was supposed to be guarding a door in the castle. This Clubba can have its appearance copied by Princess Peach and her Sneaky Parasol. Clubbas attack by whacking Mario with their club.
A more powerful variety known as White Clubbas make an appearance in Chapter 7 on Shiver Mountain and inside Crystal Palace.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Edit
In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, only one Clubba, named Grubba makes an appearance throughout the whole game as the manager of the Glitz Pit and as a boss. This Clubba, however, appears to be quite different appearance-wise than other Clubbas. Most noticeably, he is dressed in a business suit, is blue instead of the usual green, has big orange lips, and has orange hair instead of the usual white Clubba hair.
Super Paper Mario Edit
Clubbas appear again in Super Paper Mario, where they appear in all the surface areas of the Gap of Crag. They have very high HP in this game. Once more, they were often found napping and could be avoided by the player's character. A Clubba can also be fought against in Castle Bleck as an optional enemy, like in Paper Mario. Their final appearance in game is in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials, in rooms 54 and 63. There was also a very brief mentioning of Tubba Blubba, by Francis. According to him, Tubba Blubba stars in his own TV series called The Blubbening. A new subspecies of Clubba, the Dark Clubba, debuts in this game.
Contrary to what it may seem, you can jump on them, despite the spiked club they hold.
Sleep attacks, such as a Sleepy Sheep item or Star Spirit power Lullaby, are extremely useful when fighting a lot of them.
After defeating Tubba Blubba, all the Clubbas leave, except for one. This one can't be fought, but you can speak to it. It will wonder where everyone went, then go back to sleep.
