A Moofish[1] is an enemy in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. These cow and fish hybrids are found swimming in the tree sap of the In the Trees stage, and if the player enters the sap it is in, the Moofish will charge at them horizontally. Moofishes can be defeated either from being jumped on or being hit by a fireball.
