Coin Bandits are are relatives of Bandits that first appear in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, where they sport pink-colored clothing. Their name comes from the Red Coin that they carry above their heads.

Coin Bandits run away from Yoshi on sight. Yoshi can cause them to drop their Red Coin by licking or shooting them with seeds from a Green Watermelon, upon which their behavior reverts to that of normal Bandits and try to snatch Baby Mario instead. Coin Bandits can be defeated by attacking them with three jumps, three eggs or a Ground Pound. If Yoshi grabs the coin without touching the Coin Bandit, it will act as if it was still holding the coin.
