The B.B. Gang, also known as the Bla-Bla Gang (ブラブラだん, Black Blood Gang in Mother) is a gang of street punks in EarthBound Beginnings. Their Japanese name appears to reference the Bloods, while their blue outfits clearly reference the Crips; the Bloods & Crips are two prominent rival street gangs in Los Angeles, the city that Ellay is based off of.
The B.B. Gang can only be found and fought in Ellay, appearing in various places because they have taken over the city. They have fairly high offense, and very high defense, so it's easier to use PSI attacks instead. They may drop a Flame Thrower, and give $60. If talked to with Teddy is in the party they do not attack, instead saying "Hi! Teddy! How are you doin'?" These enemies can be fought over and over again by talking to them.
In the original Famicom release, members smoked cigarettes. These were removed in later versions.
