The hero. She is a red, ball-shaped creature with two long arms that she uses to grip Turn Posts in order to change direction. She will bounce off walls like a ball, but burst if she touches the Sea Urchin's spikes. She can attack the Sea Urchins by shooting shock waves from her mouth.
In the 2 Player Game, the second player controls a green Bubbles. If the two Bubbles hit each other, they bounce away in opposite directions.
The mean Sea Urchins that stole the treasure and hid it in the mazes of Clu Clu Land. They appear from Black Holes and wander around the maze, getting in Bubbles' way. If Bubbles bumps into a Sea Urchin she will burst and lose a life. Shoot a Sea Urchin with a shock wave and it will shrivel up for a short time. While it is shrivelled, Bubbles can push it into the walls of the maze to defeat it.
A swirling vortex where the Sea Urchins live. If Bubbles crosses a Black Hole, she will be sucked inside and lose a life. Bubbles can pass over the top of a Black Hole if she is holding a Turn Post.
A pink rubber trap set by the Sea Urchins that will suddenly appear when passing between two Turn Posts. If Bubbles hits the Rubber Trap she will immediately turn around.
The leader of the Sea Urchins only appears in VS. Clu Clu Land / Clu Clu Land D. When Bubbles defeats many Sea Urchins on a single stage, Boss Sea Urchin will appear and move quickly around the maze. If Bubbles shocks and defeats the Boss Sea Urchin, she gets a bonus.
Posts found in each level. Bubbles hooks her hand around them in order to turn and change direction.
The treasure, stolen by the Sea Urchins and hidden in the mazes of Clu Clu Land. When Bubbles passes over where a Gold Bar has been hidden, it will appear. When all of the Gold Bars have been uncovered the stage is cleared.
Delicious fruit that appears randomly on the stage for a short time. Worth 800 points.
A mystery bag that appears randomly on the stage for a short time. Worth 1,500 points.
A white flag that appears randomly on the stage for a short time. Rewards you with an extra life.
A clock that appears randomly on the stage for a short time. When collected, the screen brightens and the Sea Urchin, time counter, and opposing player (in the 2 Player mode) will freeze for a few seconds.
