Artwork of an Attacky Sack from Yoshi's Story
|First appearance||Yoshi's Story (1998)|
An Attacky Sack is a large, rubbery, marble-like enemy from Yoshi's Story. The name is a pun on "hacky sack," a small ball-like bag. An Attacky Sack has small eyes with green irises and long sharp teeth; its body is covered in multiple patchy colors, and it is roughly three times the size of a Yoshi. Despite its in-game size, an Attacky Sack's sprite is actually quite small. It is an invincible enemy that slowly bounces off walls. Attacky Sacks are found only in the Magma Castle, where seven of them appear.
