Mini-Ravens[citation needed] are small Ravens that appear in a few stages in the game Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. When Yoshi eats them, they are automatically digested without being turned into a Yoshi Egg. Like their larger cousins, Mini-Ravens can climb walls and ceilings. Mini-Ravens return in Yoshi's New Island, where they are only found in Eggstraordinary Terrain. Unlike previously, Yoshi can lay an egg if he eats one.

These Ravens are found in Super Princess Peach and are known plainly as Ravens[1], being small and giving no Vibe energy if absorbed by Perry (in a similar manner to how Yoshi could not produce eggs upon eating Mini-Ravens).
