under the effects of a Blimp Fruit
“This taste delicious, yes?”
—Whittle, Super Mario Galaxy 2
Blimp Fruits are a special type of fruit appearing in Super Mario Galaxy 2. Along with the Dash Pepper and the Bulb Berry, it is specially made for Yoshi to eat. These fruits play a key role in the Tall Trunk Galaxy. Blimp Fruit look like light-blue Berries with a small stem. When Yoshi consumes this fruit, he changes his green color to Light Blue and inflates (taking the form of Blimp Yoshi), similar to Balloon Mario's power-up. After that, Yoshi can propel himself upward by exhaling the air inside him or hold the A button to hover in the same place. However, like Bee Mario, a meter appears to show how long Yoshi can stay afloat. Once the meter empties, Yoshi reverts back to normal. They are also found in the Starshine Beach Galaxy and the Flash Black Galaxy, as well as in an area near the end of Bowser's Galaxy Generator.
