Cloud N. Candy, Yoshi's Story

Cloud N. Candy is a boss who appears in the Nintendo 64 game Yoshi's Story. This boss is a colossal, buoyant, smiling cloud composed of fluffy yellow candy. In order to defeat Cloud N. Candy the player has to lick him. Cloud N. Candy jumps during the fight, damaging the player if they touch him. As the player continues to lick him, he shrinks to a smaller size, making him quicker and more agile. Each time he is licked the player will recover some of their health. After repeated licks, Cloud N. Candy is eaten. His name, as well as the character himself, is a pun on cloud and cotton candy.
