Super Mario SeriesEdit
Rip Van Fish are usually found sleeping in underwater levels. When near one, Mario or Luigi wakes it up, and it pursues the Bro. until it can defeat them. Rip Van Fish can also wake up from a Chargin' Chuck's whistle. If they get too far from Mario, they will fall back asleep. Mario and Luigi cannot defeat these enemies unless they have a Fire Flower, use a Starman or have their Yoshi eat them.
