Earthworm Jim Wiki

Flying Fish Sprite

The Flying Fish is an enemy in the game Earthworm Jim, appearing exclusively in the level Intestinal Distress. They are a pun on the real sea animal that goes by the same name, although these fish are blue and have propellers on their back, allowing them to literally take flight. They will pursue Jim and attack by flying into him, dealing damage. They are easily dispatched, however, with but a few bullets.

  • They are a reference to somebody eating a fish.
  • It is odd how they do not need water to stay alive.
  • Like most foes in this level, they always appear in pairs.
