Slave Basa are purple variants of Fangs that appeared in Yoshi's New Island, summoned by Count Fang. They do not directly attack Yoshi, but they circle Count Fang, protecting him, and they hurt Yoshi on contact. As with any Fang, they can be defeated with any attack. After Count Fang is hit once, he will summon four Slave Basa, and after the second hit, he will summon six more.
