Eep Cheeps are a variant of Cheep Cheeps first found in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are similar in appearance to Cheep Cheeps, although they are orange in color, and will swim away from Mario when he gets close. Their name is a combination of the species name "Cheep Cheep" and "eep", a short scream of fright in reference to their "cowardly" demeanor.
Super Mario series
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
Eep Cheeps make their first appearance in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They swim away from the player whenever they get close, which is the opposite of Deep Cheeps and their behavior. They only appear in World 1-4, and whenever there is a riff in the music, Eep Cheeps will do a spin.
New Super Mario Bros. U / New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
Eep Cheeps return in New Super Mario Bros. U. They retain the same behavior and appearance.

Though first seen in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, the concept of orange-colored Cheep Cheeps was originally meant to be in Super Mario Bros. 3 (as seen on the picture on the right), released 21 years prior, where these enemies would have come in groups of three and swum faster than green ones. While they are technically more of a tan color in the original due to sharing a palette with Goombas, Super Mario All-Stars and Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 color it orange despite it still being unused. Eep Cheeps also go unused in New Super Mario Bros. 2, though they would function just as they do in the other games they appear in.
In the Super Mario Mash-up in Minecraft, Clownfish are replaced with Eep Cheeps.
The twelfth Fishing Tourney in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp that began on March 14, 2019 featured Eep Cheeps alongside regular Cheep Cheeps, Cheep Chomps, and Bloopers, owing to it being run on Mario Day. An Eep Cheep balloon attached to a Brick Block could also be obtained as special furniture after reaching the 800, 950, 1,100, or 1,300 cm milestone.
Eep Cheeps appear in the LEGO Super Mario Character Pack (Series 1) as one of nine possible blind bag characters.
