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 and Yoshi's Woolly World. 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 Middle Ring, or with a ? Cloud item.
