Blurp (Yoshi's Story)
Blurps are relatives of the Cheep Cheep native to Yoshi's Island. They are found in the game Yoshi's Story. The standard ones are small, round, reddish-orange fish with white bellies found in the seas in stages 5-1: Lots O' Jellyfish and 5-2: Lots O' Fish. Some swim back and forth in one small area, while others swim continuously forward in a more-or-less straight line.
There are two giant subspecies in the game as well, and these are detailed below.
Red Blurps, also referred to as simply simply Blurps, are giant versions of the smaller fish of the same color native to the Jungle River of Yoshi's Island. Red Blurps will eat anything near the river, so the Yoshi must be careful when in their vicinity. Red Blurps act a lot like Boss Bass, but are larger and more aggressive.
Red Blurps appear only in Stage 4-2: Jungle Puddle. They can jump very high out of the water, and have excellent aim. If a Yoshi falls into the water, it is difficult to get out in one piece.
Blue Blurps are a sub-species of Red Blurps that spit water at anything above the waterline. However, once their prey is in the water, they act like Red Blurps. They are rarer than the Red Blurp, but all the same appear only where the normal variety do (namely, Jungle Puddle).
Much like Spray Fish from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Blue Blurps shoot out a wall of water that's difficult to pass. These can be very annoying since their water spray follows Yoshi and can knock him into the water.
