A frog from Yoshi's Story.
First appearance Yoshi's Story (1997)
Subject origin Frog

A frog[1][2] is an enemy in Yoshi's Story. Frogs are found in Neuron Jungle, and they swarm any Yoshi crossing the lagoon. They may randomly spawn on the ground or in the water, with tiny ones doing so exclusively in the latter. Certain normal-sized ones wait in fixed locations on land, hopping after Yoshis when they catch sight of them. Although any Yoshi can eat them, the Green Yoshi likes them best.
