Roger Lift is a water spirit wearing a Flatbed Ferry on its head that appears in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. It appears only in one room of Salvo The Slime's Castle, where it is seen moving in a fluid and constant looping motion. By jumping on its head, Yoshi can reach high areas when it stretches there. A similar creature known as Support Ghost appears later in Sluggy The Unshaven's Fort, which is a Blargg ghost that moves in a set obstacle course in a wide room.
