- This article is about an obstacle in Yoshi's Story. For the minigame in Mario Party, see Bumper Balls.
A Bumper Ball, also called a Super Ball, is a large red ball that appears in Yoshi's Story. Bumper Balls appear in the levels Rail Lift and Lift Castle. Each Bumper 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. Bumper Balls can cause a loss of life if hit from the underside.
