Fire Snake (Super Mario World)

Flooffs are small fireball creatures that appear in Yoshi's Woolly World. They attack by hopping towards Yoshi similar to Fire Snakes. Yoshi can grab a Flooff's flame with his tongue, rendering the Flooff vulnerable to attacks, and use the flame to breathe fire, albeit only once. While unlit, it will not hop as high or as fast, and Yoshi can defeat it with a stomp or a yarn ball. However, after a short time, or if Yoshi breathes the fire back at the Flooff, it will light it back up. Flooffs also cannot be eaten.
