A Bumper Ball,[1] also called a Super Ball,[2] is an object in Yoshi's Story. This large red ball has four blue arrows pointing on each side. Bumper Balls normally hook with chain lines that appear on the screen. They also normally move at the left or right side of the wall. If a Yoshi bumps into one, the Yoshi is bounced back. Additionally, some Bumper Balls are designed to move fast to bounce the Yoshi more forcefully. In some cases, the Yoshis can use these objects to reach a higher part in the level. These obstacles cannot be destroyed by throwing an egg at or ground-pounding them. Hitting a Bumper Ball from the underside can cause the Yoshi to lose a life. Bumper Balls appear in Rail Lift and Lift Castle only.
