Don Bongo, Yoshi's Story

Don Bongo, the dinosaur-like enemy.

Don Bongo is a boss from Yoshi's Story. He is fought at the end of Stage 3-4: Frustration. Don Bongo is a dinosaur-like creature with green skin andyellow spots, a yellow stomach with stripes, and a big orange-and-yellow bellybutton. Don Bongo attacks by stomping back and forth across the room, sometimes causing pots and pans to rain down from the ceiling. To defeat Don Bongo, Baby Yoshi has to hit him in the lips three times.

Baby Yoshi does not lose any health if he touches Don Bongo, simply bouncing off him instead. Only the items falling from the ceiling can hurt Baby Yoshi.


The "don" in Don Bongo's name may derive from the "don," the Spanish word for "lord." "Bongo" may refer to the sound of his footsteps, which resemble the sound of a low drum such as a timpani.
