BACKGROUND: Lungefish are large aqua-coloured fish that live in the waters in and around Yoshi's Island. They are named after their preferred hunting method: they hide in weeds and suddenly lunge at their prey, likely eating it whole. They look pretty silly - they have a pair of whiskers on their nose for camaflouge, and their massive red lips are lighly distinctive.

QUOTES:
n/a.

STATS AND STRATEGIES:
Games: SMW2:YI, YIDS
HP: Infinite
Speed: Medium
Attack Pattern: Hides in the water, only its eyes poking out. If Yoshi's not looking at it, it pops out more. When Yoshi's in range, it lunges at him, either knocking the baby off Yoshi's back or swallowing him whole (depending on aim).
Basic Strategies: You can't kill them, but an egg will stun them for a short time.
Advanced Strategies: They're somewhat easy to avoid if you know they're around (and if you're moving the same direction they're lunging), but can be deadly if they surprise you.
