Yoshi's Island DS
Polterpiranhas move up and down or side to side. They also hang upside down and do not have a stem. If the player does not have enough time to react, they will eat Yoshi whole for about two seconds, leaving Yoshi's current baby floating around until Yoshi gets out to capture it. They can be defeated by throwing a Yoshi's Egg at them or by having Baby DK perform his dash attack on them.
