Sprite of a Balloon Bully from Yoshi's Story

A Balloon Bully,[1] or Mr Clown,[2] is a helpful character found in Yoshi's Story. Balloon Bullies are large white balloons, which are found in mechanical crates or ? Bubbles. Three of them are found in the game: two in stage 1-2, Surprise!!, and one in stage 6-2, Lift Castle. When a Yoshi fires an egg at one, it expands into a balloon-like creature with a log on its head. The Yoshi can ride a Balloon Bully to reach otherwise inaccessible items. When the Yoshi stands on its log, the player can use the Control Stick to control the Balloon Bully's movement. If the Yoshi leaves a Balloon Bully's lift, it will remain stationary for a few seconds, then it will slowly sink to the ground.
