Yurarin Boo

Yurarin[1][2] are seahorse enemies found in the Muda Kingdom in Super Mario Land, described as Dragonzamasu's underlings.[1] Yurarin's attack patterns are very simple and easy to dodge. They simply float around at a slow speed, trying to hit Mario. Mario is awarded 400 points for shooting one twice with torpedoes supplied by his Marine Pop. They are only found in World 2-3 of the Muda Kingdom, the Marine Pop's stage. The big brothers of Yurarin, named Yurarin Boos, appear exclusively in the same kingdom as well. The only real difference between Yurarin and Yurarin Boo is that Yurarin Boo have the ability to shoot fire while Yurarin do not.

Yurarin make a brief appearance during the Dragonzamasu battle in the Super Mario Land manga, where they unsuccessfully attempt to crash into the Marine Pop. Later, they are seen being the first customers of the redeemed Yurarin Boo's takoyaki shop.
