Because of its poison, it may be difficult to challenge a Squirty. Having spikes on your rear or harvesting the Poison part from a meteor are the best ways to counter it. Squirty is one of the most aggressive cells.
Squirty makes a "gree" sound when hit as a predator. As a peer, it make a "wee" sound. Puffish also makes these sounds; this and other similarities (non-hidden mouth, purple color, poison part at the rear, flagella near poison part, carnivore diet, appears in the same styled level) suggest that the two cells may be related. It may be possible that Squirty evolved into Puffish.
Abilities that can harvested from this creature
- Squirty is the longest cell in the game, having 8 spine segments while other cells have 5.
- The back end of Squirty's body appears to be pulled up instead of it being flat and straight like every other cell, and its eyes point forward instead of straight up. Squirty is quite strange because he is apparently 3D, unlike any other cell.
- It seems to have a bitter rivalry with Punky, just like Chomper with Spiked Shyster, Stabber with Nosey, Jawhead with Needle Buzzy, Puffish with Junior and Megamouth with Paa.
