First appearance Yoshi's Story (1997)
Subject origin Jellyfish

Jellyfish[1][2][3][4] are enemies from Yoshi's Story. They appear only in the level Lots O'Jelly Fish. They are impervious to all methods of defeat and come in blue, red, and green (or light blue).[5] Blue jellyfish simply move up and down. Red jellyfish chase a Yoshi. Green jellyfish simply float in place and do not appear until the third part of the stage. Red jellyfish can sometimes have an item such as a fruit or a Heart Fruit.
