Shlurps are purple millipede-like enemies in the Wii game Super Paper Mario, living in Gloam Valley and in the Flipside Pit of 100 Trials in rooms 13 and 15. There are tougher versions of the enemies named Shlorps.
These creatures are almost invincible thanks to their extremely hard skin. The only way to defeat these enemies is to get them to swallow the explosive Boomer, which may be inspired by the similarly armor-skinned Dodongos, a well-known Legend of Zelda species that is defeated by throwing bombs into their mouths; they most specifically resemble the Dodongo Snakes in appearance. Despite having lots of legs, they move very slowly, and keep going in the same direction even when they hit a wall. Shlurps suck up and swallow anything they find in their way, including the player, although they will spit them out afterwards, dealing a small amount of damage.
