Nep-Enut (Yoshi's Woolly World)

Nep-Enut[1], or Submarine Nep-Enut[2], is a water-based, blue type of Gargantua Blargg that hides underwater in the games Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Yoshi's Island DS, and Yoshi's New Island. Nep-Enut will remain submerged until Yoshi approaches it. Then, the monster will rise, blocking Yoshi's path. Yoshi must shoot inside Nep-Enut's mouth with an egg for it to submerge in the water (and only its eyebrows will remain visible). If Yoshi jumps over the giant monster, Nep-Enut will give chase. Like Gargantua Blarggs, Nep-Enuts are increasingly bigger and more detailed in each subsequent appearance thus far. A Shy Guy-spitting version of Nep-Enut appears in Yoshi's Woolly World.
