|Appearances||Ecco the Dolphin|
Puffer Fish are a harmful fish found in many levels of Ecco the Dolphin. They are usually a brown or orangish colour. In the Master System version they are green, but in Genesis they are brown. They appear in Ecco Junior as a sea creature, and are the objective of the level Home Sea.
Behaviour in Ecco the Dolphin
Puffer Fish swim faster than most fish and roam freely. They are very strong swimmers and have no trouble swimming in strong currents such as those in the Undercaves. Ecco can not eat them and instead must defeat them with his charge attack. Ecco will take damage if he physically touches them.
Some puffer fish will simply swim across the screen but others directly attack Ecco.
