How to Catch the Legendary Cheep Cheep and Legendary Blooper in Paper Mario The Origami King

To catch the Legendary Cheep Cheep and Legendary Blooper in Paper Mario The Origami King you will need to head to Full Moon Island in the Great Sea area of the map (for a look at the fully-completed map of this area, head here). Once you're there, head to the fishing spot at the back of the island. There are two types of fish you can catch here: bloopers and cheep cheeps. For each type, follow these steps to get the Legendary versions:

  1. Catch a fish of any size
  2. Now aim to catch one of a larger size
  3. Keep doing this, larger and larger, until the Legendary appears
  4. It will be noticeably larger than the other fish
