These appear as large red and yellow fish with a gauge emanating from their lower half. Madeline can use the top half of these fish to bounce on. Jumping while bouncing off of a fish will grant extra height compared to a normal bounce, similarly to Ice Balls. Super bump mechanic of the Bumper is also possible with the Exploding Puffer. After being bounced on, fish will descend and can be used again. Colliding with the lower half of a fish results in an explosion which pushes Madeline, similarly to exploding Seekers. Most fish respawn after exploding. Fish refill dash regardless of method of contact. Names for this object include Blowfish, Exploding Fish, and Pufferfish. Exploding fish are exclusive to Chapter 9.
