Dangling Ghosts[1] are enemies encountered in World 5 of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. Resembling Caged Ghosts, they swing back and forth on the ceiling similarly to a pendulum, in an attempt to hit a Yoshi or Baby Mario. If they succeed, they will grab and hold Baby Mario in their jaws, leading to him needing to be rescued. They can be defeated temporarily using the usual method (spitting another enemy at them or shooting an egg), and they retract, allowing the player to pass through. After a few seconds, they return to their constant swinging back and forth.

Dangling Ghosts also appear in Yoshi's New Island, particularly in Ready, Steady, Go! They have the same behavior as before, except they do not retract when hit and instead stop where they are. They are also an off-white color.
