The mascot joined the team last month, and cheers alongside the Marines' bird mascots, reports MLB.com.

The fish has been delighting fans in Japan by dancing around at games (dat fish got moves).

Sometimes, the fish would even "swim" on the grass, MLB.com reported.

On Saturday, the team wrote on Twitter that its "mystery fish" was about to ~evolve~ into its "third form."

いよいよ明日、第3形態に進化を遂げる魚。想像を絶する変化を見せるとの調査結果も出ています。5回裏に注目です。グヒヒヒヒ、と謎の魚。(謎の魚調査チーム) #chibalotte

It "evolved" at a game over the weekend. And...OMG, wtf is happening???

The "evolution" appears to be the fish puking out its own "spine."

The spine then dances pretty fabulously, while simultaneously being creepy AF.

People at home and abroad were shook.

Sadly, however, spine fish is a limited-time-only mascot. It has since returned to the ocean, according to CBS Sports.

However, CBS Sports reported the fish may return at some point. We can dream!
