Cave of the Nipper Plants is the third level of World 1 in Yoshi's New Island. It takes place mostly underground and features a large number of Nipper Spores and Nipper Plants. This level's playable Yoshi is the light-blue Yoshi.


The level starts on a field with Shy Guys, Item Balloons, Nipper Spores and Nipper Plants. Further ahead lies a pipe that leads into an underground section. On the way to the Checkpoint Ring, there are a number of mushroom platforms, Shy Guys (both on the ground and carried by Item Balloons) and Piranha Plants. Past the ring are more Shy Guys and several Nipper Plants, followed by a wide gap with mushroom platforms and a pipe that leads back above the ground. Here, there are a few more Nipper Plants, a Shy Guy floating with an Item Balloon and a Whirly Fly Guy before a stretch leading to the level's Goal Ring.
