A Mr. Eel,[1] also simply called an Eel,[2] is an enemy in Yoshi's Story. Mr. Eels are small Snorkel Snake-like creatures appearing in stages with water only, namely Jungle Puddle and Lots O'Fish. These enemies do nothing but mindlessly swim through levels, moving through walls and other obstacles; as a result, they do not pose much of a threat. Mr. Eels always come in unlimited numbers, which can prove to be useful, as they can be eaten by a Yoshi to restore life on the latter's Smile Meter. When a Yoshi eats a Mr. Eel, it gives them an egg, but it is useless underwater.
