|Variant of||Lantern Ghost|
The Mega Kantera (メガカンテラ, "Mega Lantern") is a gigantic Lantern Ghost that appears in Yoshi's New Island. Only one Mega Kantera appears in the game, in the level Bandit Valley alongside a Tetu Kantera. Yoshi will lose Baby Mario off his back if he touches the Mega Kantera from the sides. If he jumps on the enemy, he will simply bounce on it. The Mega Kantera can be ingested and turned into a Mega Eggdozer, similarly to a Mega Guy. Another way to defeat the Mega Kantera is hitting it with the Metal Eggdozer produced from the nearby Tetu Kantera.
