Card Description
This hungry beast really sucks...stuff up! Bombs give it a bad case of heartburn.
Tattle
That bizarre creature is a Shlurp. It has tough skin and an appetite for everything... Max HP is ??, attack is 2, and Defense is ??. No attack will work... But Shlurps are just as fragile inside as they are tough on the outside... Maybe you should try feeding it something that would give it indigestion...

Shlurps are purple caterpillar-like enemies in the Wii game Super Paper Mario, living in Gloam Valley and in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials in rooms 13 and 15. There are tougher versions of these enemies that are named Shlorps.

These strange creatures are almost invincible thanks to their extremely hard exoskeleton. The only way to defeat these enemies is to get them to swallow the explosive Boomer, which may be inspired by the similarly armour-skinned Dodongos, a well-known Legend of Zelda species is defeated by throwing bombs into their mouths. Despite having lots of legs, they move very slowly, and keep going in the same direction, even when they hit a wall, which highlights their placid temper. Shlurps suck up and swallow anything they find in their way, including Mario, although they will spit him out afterwards, dealing damage but not a fatality.
