Blarggs are monsters that reside in the lava in the Mario series. Their appearance differs from game to game; in their debut in Super Mario World, Blarggs resembled dinosaurs, like a majority of other enemies in the game, like Rexes and Dino Rhinos. In most games starting with Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island however, they resemble large, blob-like creatures, usually with a grouchy expression. In most of their appearances, they attack by rising out of the lava in an attempt to attack Mario or Yoshi. In Super Mario World, they are immune to any attacks - including Invincible Mario - and as such serve as obstacles that must be avoided. In the Yoshi series however, Yoshi is able to throw a Yoshi Egg at Blarggs to stun them for a short time.

In the Yoshi games, more Blargg species appear: larger Blarrgs called Gargantua Blarggs are harder to avoid, and blue variants called Nep-Enuts appear as well. Meanwhile, a rarer species called Egg-Enut resides mostly in Warp Pipes, and hide themselves, luring Yoshi with a fake Yoshi Egg. When he's close enough, the Egg-Enut reveals itself and attacks by swinging the fake egg around, which can damage Yoshi.
