Blurps are green colored, goggle-wearing fish that first appeared in the various underwater levels of Super Mario World. Blurps, like 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 the 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. In this game, they occasionally pause in their swimming. Blurps are found primarily in the Turtle Zone. They again lack pectoral fins in-game, but still have them on the artwork. Additionally, their artwork depicts them as light blue with pink goggles and white lips instead of green with orange goggles and golden lips.
A single Blurp appeared in the Super Mario World television 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 the depiction of Trouter from The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!. Like its game appearance, the Blurp is green in color and has red fins, but the goggles are replaced with large white rings around the eyes, and it has four sharp teeth.
A sand-dwelling variety of Blurp known as the Sand Cheep appears in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and its remake. It appears to be a normal Blurp with a fake shark fin strapped to its back. It later appears in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time where it is thrown by Shrooba Divers.
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 green Cheep Cheeps in the Super Mario World style. However, the voice heard when placing elements onto the course will still call them Cheep Cheeps.
