Lava Drops[1] are small, floating, fireball-like enemies found in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Yoshi's New Island, Yoshi's Woolly World and Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World, seemingly resembling Lava Bubbles from Mario games. They move either up and down, or left and right. The player can't destroy them with regular attacks, and as a result, they have to be avoided completely. They appear in various cave levels and in groups. They can be defeated by passing through a Checkpoint Ring, or with a Winged Cloud item.
