First appearance New Super Mario Bros. (2006)

Cheepskipper[1] is a purple-and-white Mega Cheep-Cheep with yellow fins and two sharp fangs protruding from its bottom lip. Unlike with typical Cheep-Cheeps, Cheepskipper's pectoral fins are short and round instead of wing-like, its dorsal fin is wavy and thin, and its caudal fin has two lobes instead of three. Cheepskipper appears only in New Super Mario Bros., as the boss of World 3. In its boss fight, Cheepskipper jumps out of the water on the right side of the screen, bounces along the bridge, and exits from the left. Cheep Cheeps also jump out alongside it. While Cheepskipper is out of the water, the player must stomp on it. After being stomped three times, Cheepskipper is defeated, and the path to World 5 is opened.
