Eep Cheeps are a sub-species of Cheep Cheeps first found in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. They are similar in appearance to Cheep Cheeps, although they are golden 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 discomfort when frightened easily in reference to the Eep Cheeps' nature of swimming away from Mario and living in schools for protection.
