BACKGROUND: Swoopin' Poinks are blue space leeches that sit around in small packs of three or five, and they rely on the energy of other beings to fuel themselves. In other words, they suck health from other things, like Fuzzies. Strangely, they do not eat through their mouth, instead they use their underside, which has no visible opening or tool on it.

n/a.

STATS AND STRATEGIES:
Games: SMG
Items: One star bit, sometimes three.
Attack Pattern: They sit around motionless in small groups, and start chasing Mario when he gets to close. If they touch Mario, they will start eating away at his health meter unless he gets them off.
Basic Strategies: Jump or spin on one to defeat it. If one happens to latch on Mario, you must spin it off.
Advanced Strategies: While one is chasing Mario or is sucking his health, shoot it with a star bit. It will die and will leave behind three star bits instead of one.

In the beta of SMG, Swoopin' Poinks were going to be purple rather than blue.
