An Arrow Cloud, also referred to as an Arrow Block,[1] is an object appearing in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (and its reissue), Yoshi Touch & Go, Yoshi's Island DS, and Yoshi's New Island. Arrow Clouds can be found in numerous levels of the games they appear in. If hit with a Yoshi's Egg, an Arrow Cloud sends it flying in the direction the arrow is pointing. There are two types of Arrow Clouds: those with arrows fixed in one direction, and those that rotate constantly.
