A Red Yoshi and a Bandit playing Gather Coins each other

Gather Coins is the name of a Mini Battle from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. The Mini Battle involves the player competing against a Bandit to collect the most coins before time runs out in 30 seconds. The coins themselves are shot out of a cannon moving on a track overhead. The player can stomp on the Bandit to stun it for a short while, and vice versa; running into the bandit causes both it and Yoshi to be knocked back. If Yoshi wins, the player gets a random item.

This Mini Battle can played behind the locked doors of the shacks in the stages Touch Fuzzy, Get Dizzy, Lakitu's Wall, and Ride Like The Wind.


Grab more coins than your enemy before the time reaches 0.
