A Deep-Cheep's beta artwork from New Super Mario Bros. U.
|First appearance||New Super Mario Bros. (2006)|
|Latest appearance||Super Mario Maker 2 (2019)|
Deep-Cheeps are a special variety of Cheep-Cheeps that are first found in New Super Mario Bros. They act and appear to be regular Cheep-Cheeps, except for the fact that these creatures are green and will actively chase Mario or Luigi in underwater levels depending on the direction they swim. Deep-Cheeps will only give up pursuing Mario or Luigi if they swim behind and past them. Deep-Cheeps behave in a similar way to Rip Van Fishes from Super Mario World.
Super Mario series
New Super Mario Bros.
In New Super Mario Bros., Deep-Cheeps and their larger variant, the Mega Deep-Cheep, only appear in World 6. They chase Mario or Luigi until they swim away.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
In New Super Mario Bros. Wii, they are slightly more common. One appears in World 1-4 along with a Mega Deep-Cheep. If Mario and co. keep staying in the area, another pair will appear. They also appear in the second part of World 8-4. In this game, their mouths have become pink, like a Cheep-Cheep, rather than the red-orange color they previously had. Their fin and tail have also become yellow, as opposed to white.
