Lava Cheep Cheeps,[1] also known as Fire Cheep Cheeps[2] and described as "black Tobi Lava Fish")[3] are Cheep-Cheeps that appear in Super Mario Sunshine. Their scales are a dark mahogany color, they are constantly on fire, and they have asterisk-shaped pupils. They inhabit the magma within Corona Mountain, where they swim in one direction a short distance and then leap back to where they started in an arc. None of them are even remotely in Mario's way, however.
