Mock Ups, also known as Bogus Blimps, are balloons in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its reissue, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, that appear in only a few levels. When a Yoshi gets too close to Mock Ups, they inflate. If the Yoshi eats the balloon, a 1-UP is awarded. Failing to eat the balloon results in it exploding and revealing a Fly Guy that then flies away, while the Yoshi is injured. Hitting a Mock Up with an egg causes it to roll away.
