A Shlurp
First appearance Super Paper Mario (2007)
Dark Shlurp

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.

Tattle That bizarre creature is a Shlurp. It has tough skin and an appetite for everything... Max HP is ??, attack is 2, and Defense is ??. No attack will work... But Shlurps are just as fragile inside as they are tough on the outside... Maybe you should try feeding it something that would give it indigestion...
