Yoshi about to battle Cloud N. Candy

Cloud N. Candy is a boss in Yoshi's Story. Her name, as well as the character herself, is a pun on cloud and cotton candy. She is a colossal, buoyant, smiling cloud composed of fluffy yellow candy. In order to defeat Cloud N. Candy, the player has to lick her, which will pick off pieces of her, causing her to shrink until she is fully eaten. Cloud N. Candy jumps during the fight, damaging the player if they touch her, and as she gets smaller, she becomes quicker and more agile. Each time she is licked, the player will recover some health.

Candy is the sweetest and easiest Midstory Meanie to ever fly these enchanted skies. You can’t use your Ground Pound or eggs on her, but you can chew her up with your tongue. Cloud’s weapon is her bounce attack, but you can foil her plan by taking a bite out of her when she springs into range. You’ll even regain petals on your Smile Meter each time you hit her with your tongue. As you bite Cloud, she’ll shrink and bounce faster and faster. Cloud is hardest to hit when she’s at her smallest size, but if you keep using your tongue, you’ll hit her long before she can get to you."
