Rough platforms,[1][2] also known as spotted platforms,[3] knobby platforms,[1] and ridged platforms,[4] are platforms typically found in forts and castles in the Yoshi's Island series. Rough platforms have two sides: a safe area indicated by spots on one side, and a serrated, harmful edge on the other that can cause Baby Mario to fall off a Yoshi's back. Yoshis can flip the platforms by striking arrow blocks of their corresponding color by either hitting them or shooting them with an egg. In Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, they are first found in Salvo The Slime's Castle in a room past the room with the Middle Ring with green and red color variations. In Yoshi's Island DS, multiple red rough platforms appear as obstacles in Castle of Priscilla the Peckish. In Yoshi's New Island, they are found in Fort Key Calamity with two color variations, yellow replacing green.

"After leaving the basement, you'll have to make your way through a maze of platforms and spinning wheels. See those spotted platforms? The spotted sides are safe, but the serrated sides will separate baby Mario from Yoshi! Spin the platforms around by shooting the arrow blocks overhead with your eggs. This arrow block will also spin a crucial, unseen platform below." (BLOCKS OUT DANGER)
