This is a Gulpit. Whoa! Gulpits look pretty burly, don't they? Max HP: 12, Attack Power: 2, Defense Power: 0 Gulpits attack by picking rocks up in their mouths and then spitting 'em back out. The bigger the rock they spit, the more damage you'll take. Big rocks take 7 HP in damage, and small ones take 5 HP. They can't do much damage without ammo, so you should concentrate on the rocks first.

Not to be confused with Gulpin.
“GREAT-GALLOPIN' GULPITS!”
Grubba, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Gulpits are bulky, indigo creatures with rather long pink tongues and greenish blushing cheeks. Their names are word play off "gulp" and "it".

A Gulpit sticking out its large tongue

Gulpits only appear in the game Paper Mario. They are found in the icy Shiver region. They attack by picking up rocks in their mouths (called "Gulpits' Rocks" in-game), and spitting them back out at the offender, causing their opponents to take damage. There are five Gulpits' Rocks that always appear in any battles with Gulpits—three large ones and two small ones—and the amount of damage the player takes depends on the size of the rock spat out at them. These rocks can be destroyed by the player. Gulpits also attack by licking their enemy with their tongue, which they usually only use when they run out of rocks to spit. This attack can also be used outside of battle to execute a First Strike. Mario encounters Gulpits on Shiver Mountain and in Shiver Snowfield during the events of the game.

Gulpits never appear in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, but are given one reference: when Grubba catches Mario examining confidential works of his, he sputters the surprised phrase "Great galloping Gulpits!" This phrase is actually taken from two of Koopa Koot's many exclamations.

Tattle These are Gulpits' Rocks. Gulpits gulp them and then spit 'em at people. There are two sizes of rocks. The big rocks do more damage than the small rocks do. ...Big surprise, huh?
