Cheep Cheeps are common underwater-themed enemies which appear throughout the Newer Super Mario Bros. series.

In Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii, oddly enough, Cheep Cheeps are first seen in the opening thumbnail of Palm Beach, though they physically first appear in Springwater Swamp. They're last seen in Spacedust Heap. Cheep Cheeps reappear in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, where their first appearance is in the level Goldbush Pond, while their last appearance is in the boss fight with Cheepskipper in the level Overgrown Armoury.


Cheep Cheeps are red fish with white bellies. They have white wing-like fins, yellow dorsal and caudal fins, and big pink lips.

In Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, however, Cheep Cheeps appear more-so orange—though they are not Eep Cheeps.


Cheep Cheeps will swim slowly left or right in water. While sometimes they'll only stick to one direction, they do sometimes turn at set points.

Some Cheep Cheeps seen in non-underwater levels will jump at the player from water below in arcs.

In Newer Super Mario Bros. DS, some Cheep Cheeps go in circles, often surrounding coins.

Cheep Cheeps can be defeated using Fire Flowers' fireballs, Hammer Suits' hammers, contact with solid ground after being frozen by Ice Flowers and Penguin Suits' iceballs, Super Stars, and Mega Mushrooms. Cheep Cheeps that jump and also be defeated by a simple stomp.
