Flutter Wings are power-ups that first appeared in Yoshi's New Island. It is gained like the Invincibility Leaf from Super Mario 3D Land, meaning that it only appears after Yoshi loses three lives in a level. Mr. Pipe gives Yoshi this power-up and it turns him into Winged Yoshi. The power-up allows Yoshi to hover without losing height, replacing the Flutter Jump. There is a variation of Flutter Wings called Golden Flutter Wings, which acts more like an Invincibility Leaf and are only given when Yoshi loses another life with the Flutter Wings. If all the levels are completed without the Flutter Wings, there will be a battle with Bowser before Baby Luigi and the Stork are saved, as well as a cutscene showing Mr. Pipe's true identity after the credits.
Even if a Yoshi has already completed their respective level, assuming the Yoshi loses three lives in that level, they will still be offered the Flutter Wings by Mr. Pipe.
