Slurples are enemies in Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2. They have a light blue skin color, big eyes, and a snout. Slurples are health-sucking space leeches. They move around by bouncing around and latch onto Mario when he passes by. They will suck Mario's health as if they were alien leeches. Mario's movement is also slowed down when a Slurple is attached to him. If a Slurple is hit by a Star Bit they disappear and become three Star Bits instead of one Star Bit. If you notice your health draining it is probably a Slurple so focus on what is on Mario.
