Ghost Riders[1] are ghost-like creatures that Yoshis can ride in Yoshi's Story. They appear only in the Ghost Castle. They appear in the room with the third Miss Warp in said level. They act as platforms that the Yoshis can step on. They are found alongside some Block Boos, allowing the Yoshis to climb the room and cross spikes and other obstacles. They are found in great numbers and roam the area from left to right or from right to left, going through walls and obstacles. They are similar in appearance to the Gusty of the previous game.


  • Shogakukan guide: さわったも平気。乗っかっても平気。[2](It's okay to touch it. You don't have to worry about riding it.)
  • Nintendo 64 Spieleberater: Wow, die Slime Timer sind echt cool. Das Tolle an ihnen ist, daß man auf sie springen kann, ohne daß Schleim an den Schuhen kleben bleibt, denn das wäre uncool. Wer ist schon gerne verklebt? Die Slime Timer halten sich meistens in den Geisterleveln auf. Im Gegensatz zu den Buu Huus sind sie freundlich und dienen uns oftmals als Transportmittel.

The Ghost Riders mostly stay in the ghost levels. Unlike the Boos, they are friendly and often serve as our transportation.)
