The Eel is a large creature and unique enemy appearing in Jolly Roger Bay in both games.


The Eel is a large Unagi (aka Maw-Ray) that is colored maroon. The Eel has a head with teal colored eyes and large mouth with spiked teeth. It’s main body is covered with white spots and several fins.


In Plunder The Sunken Ship, Mario will find the Eel hidden inside of a large shipwreck hidden at the bottom of Jolly Roger Bay. The Eel does nothing but swim away, at least until the next mission.

In Can The Eel Come Out To Play?, the Eel is hidden in an alcove in the same area, but now with a Power Star. The Eel will swim away from Mario until the Star is collected.

Crossing paths with the Eel while swimming will cause Mario to take collision damage and loose two units of health.
