Fleepers[1][2] are yellow flea enemies that appear in Yoshi's Island DS. They first appear in the fifth stage of World 2.

Fleepers move by leaping forward at varying heights, and will knock off whatever baby Yoshi is carrying if they hit him. Some Fleepers are capable of jumping high enough to be seen on the top screen. They can be defeated by jumping on them or throwing an egg at them.
