Subject origin Bee

A bumblebee,[1] or bee,[2] is an enemy that appears in Yoshi's Story. Bumblebees appear in Cloud Cruising, where they appear in two places. They first appear as the gimmick of the red pipe next to the second Miss Warp, where the player must dodge them while sniffing for coins; bumblebees are endless here, so defeating them causes more to spawn. Bumblebees then appear in the area where a Yoshi rides the green dragon. In both instances, they can be defeated by being jumped on or eaten.
