Juice is a substance that Yoshis spit out of their mouths in Super Mario Sunshine. The juice serves essentially the same function as the water that FLUDD sprays, though the juice can also wash away Orange Juice Generators and turn certain enemies into Yoshi Platforms, while water cannot. Juice can be used by Mario only while he is riding a Yoshi. While a Yoshi is being ridden, the meter in the lower right corner of the screen changes from a tank showing how much water FLUDD has left to a stomach-shaped icon showing how much juice the Yoshi has left. The juice tank depletes as the Yoshi sprays it, and it drains over time as well. If it fully runs out, the Yoshi turns green and begins to flicker for a few seconds before vanishing altogether; during this time, it can spit only water instead of juice. The juice can easily be fully replenished at any time by having the Yoshi consume any type of fruit. The color of the juice varies depending on the color of the Yoshi that Mario is riding, which is affected by the type of fruit that the Yoshi has last eaten. Papayas and pineapples make the juice orange, which turns enemies into stationary orange platforms; bananas and coconuts make the juice pink, which turns enemies into ascending pink platforms; and durians and peppers make the juice purple, which turns enemies into forward-moving purple platforms. All three types of platforms disappear after a short amount of time.
