Eaten by Bubba is an action that happens when Mario is eaten by Bubba. Interacting with Bubba (i.e. being eaten by Bubba) is the only way to enter this action.


When interacting with Bubba, the following happens:

  • Bubba's interaction state becomes INT_STATUS_INTERACTED
  • Mario's interactObj property becomes Bubba
  • Mario's action is set to Eaten by Bubba

Standard cutscene action cancel

Like all Cutscene actions[1], if Mario's floor type is SURFACE_INSTANT_QUICKSAND and Mario's action has the INVULNERABLE flag and Mario's action is not Quicksand Death, the action is cancelled to Quicksand Death.

Needless to say this cannot happen in vanilla SM64 because Bubba is not in a level with quicksand.


The act_eaten_by_bubba function does the following: [2]

  • If Mario does not have the MARIO_ACTION_SOUND_PLAYED flag, then add the flag to Mario and play SOUND_MARIO_DYING
  • Mario's animation becomes MARIO_ANIM_A_POSE
  • Remove the GRAPH_RENDER_ACTIVE flag (from m->marioObj->header.gfx.node.flags)
  • Set Mario's health to 0xFF (makes Mario die)
  • If the actionTimer is 60, level_trigger_warp(m, WARP_OP_DEATH) (basically black screen and bowser laugh and warp)

The function returns false in all cases, exiting the action loop. Basically it cannot be cancelled into any other action, except for the quicksand death mentioned earlier. Note that Mario can't escape from this action by interacting with an object either, since this action has the "intangible" flag. (See step 8)
