Needlenoses, or Needles, are a type of Pokey that certain enemies spit. They take the shape of a yellow or green spiky ball with a smiling face. They can be turned into eggs. Needlenoses appear in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3, Yoshi Touch & Go, Yoshi's Island DS, and Yoshi's New Island.
While most Needlenoses eventually pop when shot at a Yoshi, those spat out by the Sanbo Flowers and those dropped by Baron von Zeppelin will bounce. They can be spat from Priscilla, a Blow Hard and its relatives, a Wild Ptooie Piranha, or dropped by a Baron von Zeppelin. Seedy Sallies can also throw them, and Sanbo Flowers shoot them if the Yoshi has less than six eggs. A Needlenose will also sometimes bounce on top of a Pokey. If Yoshi defeats or eats the Needlenose, the Pokey will frown and lay down. However, it will produce another Needlenose shortly after.
