|Moltz the Very Goonie|
|First appearance||Yoshi's Island DS (2006)|
Moltz the Very Goonie is the mid-boss of World 5 of Yoshi's Island DS. Moltz is the only Hefty Goonie that appears in Yoshi's Island DS. He initially does not appear until he flies down after Kamek powers him up with his magic. He tries to crush Yoshi by belly-flopping on him as they both freefall from space. In order to beat Moltz, Yoshi must Flutter Jump above him, while avoiding his flailing wings and projectile feathers, and do a Ground Pound on his head. After Moltz is hit, he flies and tries to attack Yoshi by sending Rocket Guys that Yoshi must avoid. Eventually, Moltz comes back down and Yoshi must hit him on the head again. After Moltz is hit on the head three times, he is defeated.
