Yoshi about to battle Cloud N. Candy

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