 Game History
 Super Mario Series
In this game Cheeps Cheeps swim around under water trying to cause lost lives for Mario, they can be defeated with a shell or fireballs. They also will jump up at the player on land, these can be jumped on to defeat them. In all the other Super Mario Bros. games, he plays the same roles.
Two large Cheep Cheeps are encountered during the one level Dire Dire Docks in the remake of Super Mario 64 Super Mario 64 DS. They are seen swimming around in the lake at a fairly fast pace. Though they are large they are also fairly easy to avoid. Mario will of course lose some health if he swims into them.
Cheep Cheeps are quite rare in the Wii title Super Mario Galaxy and only appear at or around the Deep Dark Galaxy. They are encountered on a small planet that orbits the Deep Dark Planet, they are relatively large and bounce around across the planet in shallow water. Mario will lose health if hit and can defeat them by spinning or jumping on them. Cheep Cheeps are also rarely encountered in the deep waters of the galaxy. A shell can defeat him while under water.
Cheep Cheeps reappear in the sequel Super Mario Galaxy 2 where they are more commonly encountered. They are about the size of Mario and swim on the surface of the water rather than under water. They attack Mario by running into him, overall they are pretty easy to avoid because they swim in circles or straight lines, and do not try to charge Mario. They can be defeated by using Yoshi who can eat them, or with a well aimed shell.
In Super Mario Sunshine Cheep Cheeps are relatively rare but are still encountered often enough. Some are seen jumping out of the water at Ricco Harbor which Yoshi can than spray juice at, which in turn changes them into moving platforms for Mario to move across. Mario must be careful not to crash into them or he will lose health. A more typical Cheep Cheep is encountered off the beach at Gelato Beach, he is seen under the water and if Mario swims close enough he will catch him in his mouth and drag him under water trying to drown Mario. He does not take any health however and the only way he could defeat Mario is if he keeps him under water long enough. But he is pretty easy to get away from.
Cheep Cheeps make a very common return in the 2D game New Super Mario Bros. for the DS. He is encountered in every or almost every underwater level in the game. He also will jump out of the water to attack Mario on land in some levels. Under water he swims towards Mario in schools or alone, he is both red and green in this game. The schools are sometimes led by a very large Cheep Cheep that is typically green. They can be defeated with fire balls.
Cheep Cheeps return in the water levels for New Super Mario Bros. Wii. Their roles are pretty much the same as New Super Mario Bros., swimming towards Mario in the levels. Large schools of Cheep Cheeps containing larger amounts than in the DS are fairly common. They appear in all three color variations in this game and also appear in two different sizes, one medium and one small. Crashing into them can result in lost lives. They also will jump out of the water and attack Mario in select levels.
