F.L.U.D.D. (short for Flash Liquidizer Ultra Dousing Device, commonly misnamed as the "F.L.U.D.D. pack") is a water pump and jetpack created by Professor E. Gadd. He appears in various games, debuting in the 2002 GameCube game Super Mario Sunshine.
The F.L.U.D.D reappears in Windmill Rewind Galaxy in Super Mario Galaxy 2.5, but this time, as a helper. He tells Mario where Petey Piranha is, How to reach him and therefore how to defeat him. So he, in a way, helps Mario/Luigi defeat Petey Piranha. After Mario/Luigi defeats Petey Piranha, he appears on Starship Mario and, later, on Starship Toad.
F.L.U.D.D. appeared in New Super Mario Baseball. However, unable to operate by himself, Prof. E. Gadd programmed a robot body for him to control. He is a player for the Super Marios. His stats are as follows:
- Speed: 7/10
- Batting: 6/10
- Pitching: 8/10
- Fielding: 8/10
- Good Chemistry: E. Gadd, Mario, Pianta, Noki, Yoshi
- Bad Chemistry: Bowser Jr., Bowser, Petey Piranha
F.L.U.D.D. appears in Jake's Super Smash Bros. in several different ways, the most prominent of which is as Mario's down special move. After equipping F.L.U.D.D., Mario is capable of using the Squirt Nozzle in order to spray a jet of water to push away nearby foes. This attack deals no damage to fighters, allowing him to also keep those who may be in a helpless state away from ledges.
F.L.U.D.D. also appears as a trophy.
