The GOAL! Ring is a ring found in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 and Yoshi's Island DS. It is found at the end of each levels (sans the Castle and Fortress ones) and acts as the goal. The GOAL! Ring is a circle having all the flowers the player collected in that level and blue dots. When a Yoshi jumps through the GOAL! Ring and passes one of the babies to the next Yoshi, it will start spinning slower and slower. When entered, the letters G-O-A-L appear.
After a few seconds, the GOAL! Ring will stop spinning and land on either a Blue Dot or on a Flower. If it lands on a blue dot, then nothing happens and the player continues to the scoreboard and then the next level. However, if the roulette stops on a flower, the player will instantly go to a Bonus Challenge when it goes to the scoreboard. After the instant Bonus Challenge, the player will go to the next level. If the player missed a Flower in the stage, the matching spot in the Goal Ring will not bloom; landing on one of these flower buds has the same result as landing on a blue dot.
