Blurps are green colored, goggle-wearing fish encountered in the various underwater levels of Super Mario World. Blurps, unlike Cheep Cheeps, will often simply swim aimlessly in one direction, injuring Mario if it collides with him. As Blurps are fairly weak, they can simply be defeated by shooting a fireball at them as Fire Mario or by bashing them with a cape as Cape Mario. They appear to be relatives of Cheep Cheep, as they share a similar name in Japanese. Blurps lack pectoral fins on their sprites in this game, but have them on their artwork.
Blurps make a reappearance as underwater enemies in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. Much like their Super Mario World counterparts, Blurps aimlessly swim in one direction and can be defeated by a Fireball. Blurps are found primarily in the Turtle Zone. They again lack pectoral fins in-game, but still have them on the artwork. They appear in Mario & Wario, a Japan-exclusive title.
A single Blurp appeared in the Super Mario World TV series episode "Mama Luigi" where Luigi was attacked by one but he swam and stomped on it. The appearance of the Blurp is different, looking more like a Boss Bass than its game appearance. Like the Blurp, it is green in color and has red fins, but the goggles are replaced with large white rings around the eyes and is very fierce.
Like various enemies of Super Mario World, Blurps also return in Super Princess Peach. Some of them are affected by the rage vibe of the Vibe Scepter and are called Mad Blurps. They will pursue Peach if she is in front of them. They are mainly encountered in groups.
Blurps reappear in Super Mario Maker and Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS, replacing Deep Cheeps in the Super Mario World style. However, the voice heard when placing elements onto the course will still call them Cheep Cheeps.
