Cheep Cheeps are large, scaly, orange fish featuring red fins. They wear black sunglasses and have large, rose colored lips.
Unlike in the earlier Mario games, where the Cheep Cheeps actively hunted Mario and Luigi, the Cheep Cheeps in Super Mario 64 and its remake are rather docile.
As long as the player doesn't swim too close to them, the Cheep Cheeps won't do the player any harm. Sometimes, they don't even eat the player, when the player is very close, so the player should judge by themselves, if it's safe to swim close to the Cheep Cheep or not.
If the Cheep Cheep faces the player with any part of their body, but their mouth, the player will be safe, but if the mouth faces the player, the situation gets dangerous and the Cheep Cheep might suddenly eat the player.
