Bubble Bobble Wiki

Hootwit, known as Hoho (ホーホゥ Hōhō?) in Japanese, is a character appearing in Puzzle Bobble Everybubble!. He is an elderly owl who lives in the forest and was once renowned as a great wizard. Drunk and a Maita are both disciples of his.



Hootwit is an owl with brown feathers, featuring two tufts of feathers atop his head and tan patches of feathers around his face and stomach. His wings are a darker shade of tan, and are the same color as his talons. He possesses fluffy white feathers on his brow line and above his beak, resembling bushy eyebrows and a mustache. He wears a gold pendant with a green gem embedded in the middle around his neck, and wields a staff with a tip shaped like a red spotted mushroom.


Hootwit is a wise, albeit somewhat scatter-brained sage who possesses great magical skill. He enjoys practicing magic and spending time in the moonlight. Conversely, he is said to dislike "newfangled" technology. While Drunk is his disciple, Hootwit does not seem to share his inclination towards mischief and causing trouble, appearing to be benevolent in his use of magic.


Hootwit possesses a high magical aptitude, and was once renowned as a great wizard for his skills. However, he sometimes has trouble figuring out the right spell to use, and his scatter-brained nature can lead to him accidentally worsening situations he is trying to fix. Despite this, he is still a capable and powerful magician.


Puzzle Bobble Everybubble![]

Hootwit first appears in Puzzle Bobble Everybubble!, where he serves as a playable character. In the game's story mode, he is encountered in the Rainbow Forest. Bub, Bob, Peb, and Pab go to the forest seeking his help in curing the Miniroons from their unstoppable bubble-blowing, but accidentally worsens the situation and causes them to produce even more bubbles than before. After the group gets rid of all the bubbles, he directs them towards his disciple, who is revealed to be Drunk, stating that he may know more about the type of magic effecting the Miniroons.

Hootwit is later seen alongside the other characters as they confront Katze, and later helps to create a cure for the Miniroons with the moon rock provided by Develon.


Hootwit's name is a portmanteau of "hoot" and "twit-twoo", both being terms used to describe the cry of an owl. Hootwit's Japanese name originates from a similar source, that being the Japanese onomatopoeia hōhō (ホウホウ?), also used to describe the cry of an owl.
