A Mini Battle, also referred to as Mini Battle Game or Mini-Battle (alternatively mini-battle or Minibattle), is a battle with a Bandit in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. A Yoshi will fight a Bandit in one of four battles, either Throwing Balloons, Popping Balloons, Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest, or Gather Coins. They are fought in certain levels after a Yoshi gets a key to the Bonus Game shack. Later, they can be played on the level selection screen.
If the player does so, a screen will pop up listing all the Mini Battles, along with a 2-player version of Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest and a 4-button Throwing Balloons mode. In single-player, Throwing Balloons can either be played in 4 button mode or the harder 6 button mode.
In Super Mario Advance 3, the 2 player Mini battles were removed, and a 5 button version of Throwing Balloons was included instead.
