Notable members

Yurarin Boo[1][2] are fire-breathing seahorse enemies in Super Mario Land. Yurarin Boos are stronger variants of Yurarin, being able to shoot fireballs while moving up and down. Yurarin Boos are more common, appearing in all three levels of Muda Kingdom, and they can also be found outside of the water. Yurarin Boos are invincible to Superballs. A Yurarin Boo can be defeated from either being stomped or from being hit by two torpedoes fired by a Marine Pop, rewarding 400 points in either case. Dragonzamasu, the boss of the Muda Kingdom, resembles Yurarin Boos.

In the Game Boy comic books spun off from the Nintendo Comics System, produced by the company Valiant, Yurarin Boos made cameos where they could fly, and be used as mounts by Pionpi.

In the Super Mario Land manga, a large Yurarin Boo is encountered in the Muda Kingdom, blocking Mario's way, who is unable to damage him with Superballs. It is rendered helpless after its mouth is tied shut and his fins are bound, and Mario and Mekakuribō keep it with them as a hostage that can guide them to the area boss. The Yurarin Boo is unwillingly cooperative and snarky at times, but does help during the boss battle: after Tamao cracks the Marine Pop's glass, Mario and Mekakuribō use the Yurarin Boo to stop the leak. After Tamao tries to hit them again, the Yurarin Boo grabs it, allowing Mario to shoot Dragonzamasu. After Mario and Mekakuribo leave Muda Kingdom, the Yurarin Boo decides to quit being a minion and opens a takoyaki shop.

Yurarin's fire-breathing brother

He is Yurarin's older brother, leaping energetically out of the sea and breathing fire. Since the superball does not work, you have to stomp on him, but you can defeat Yurarin Boo in the sea by hitting him with a torpedo.
