Variant of Spray Fish

Hot Lips[1] are lava-dwelling creatures appearing only in the Yoshi's Island series. Hot Lips have a similar appearance to Gargantua Blarggs but are much smaller and completely stationary.


Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island / Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3[edit]

Hot Lips first appear in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and return in its Game Boy Advance version. A Hot Lips is permanently stationed in one place within the lava, and to attack, a Hot Lips peeks out of its basin and spews a stream of lava in the direction of Yoshi and Baby Mario, similarly to the Spray Fish's water-spraying attack. If the Yoshi is hit with the lava stream, it instantly loses a life. Hot Lips can only be defeated with a POW Block, as many other attacks are completely ineffective and eggs only temporarily stun them.

Yoshi's Island DS[edit]

Hot Lips later appear in Yoshi's Island DS. They still attack by spraying lava at Yoshi, and if Yoshi touches the spray, he loses a life. They appear in levels such as Yikes! Boiling Hot!, Six-Face Sal's Fort, and Find the Number Ball!.

Yoshi's New Island[edit]

Hot Lips reappear in Yoshi's New Island in the level Gargantua Blargg Attacks! Their lava streams no longer defeat Yoshi on the spot. Instead, they cause him to drop Baby Mario as most other enemy attacks.


Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island[edit]

  • Player's Guide: Always on the lookout for a good time, Hot Lips likes to squirt lava on everyone who passes by.[1]
  • Shogakukan guide: 溶岩を吐き出すテッポウオ。夕マゴを当てれば、しばらくおとなしくなる。[2](A Spray Fish that spits out lava. If you hit it with an egg, it will be quiet for a while.)

Yoshi's New Island[edit]

  • Shogakukan guide: 溶岩から顔を出して、水鉄砲のように溶岩を放ってくる。てっぽ一うおとは異なり、この溶岩に触れるとダメージを受けるので注意しよう。倒すことはできない。[3](It will emerge from the lava and shoot lava like a water cannon. Unlike Spray Fish, you will be damaged if you touch this lava. It cannot be defeated.)
