Hefty Goonie

When a Hefty Goonie gets swallowed and then spat out, it loses its wings and becomes a Bowling Goonie[1]. Bowling Goonies roll around the level for their primary method of attack. They can be defeated with a ground pound. They first appear in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3.

For some odd reason, Yoshi can eat Hefty Goonies, and yet he can't eat Bowling Goonies.

They also appeared in Yoshi's New Island.
