Slime Drops (originally known as Lemon Drops[1]) are enemies in the game Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. They look like gooey lemon drops, and are only found in a few levels.

In Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Slime Drops are especially prominent in Salvo The Slime's Castle, where they break off of Salvo the Slime when he is hit. They also appear in Prince Froggy's Fort.

Slime Drops also appear in Yoshi's New Island in the level Slime Drop Drama. Yoshi can defeat Slime Drops by eating or jumping on them.

Slime Drops make a cameo appearance in Mario Party 4 in Slime Time. They appear as small blue drops instead of yellow.

Trivia[edit]

  • The original localized name of "Lemon Drop" references their bright yellow color and their behavior of dropping from ceilings (as well as being simply a small blob of liquid), creating an additional reference to the candy of the same name. It is likely that the name was changed to "Slime Drop" due to them no longer being bright yellow, thus making the original name less meaningful.
