- I guess it is mentioned on a Shogakugan page of level layouts? -- FanOfYoshi 12:46, 26 September 2018 (EDT)
Bowling Goonie doesn't have its own entry in either the Super Mario Advance 3 or Yoshi's New Island Shogakukan books, but it's instead decribed within Hefty Goonie.
An Aho Dori that became too fat to fly. When hit by an egg, or when eaten, the wings are taken off and it will roll along. While rolling, it is also vulnerable to hits.
A rolling Aho Dori that looks like a ball. Those that bounce to move, and those that roll on the ground consist of the two varieties. For the bounce movement type, it can fit in your mouth and be eaten.
However, it appears to have its own name within in-game Yoshi's New Island data: "debu_aho_mushi" (basically "Fat Goon Bug"; compare Flightless Goonie). Since Bowling Goonie is encountered in the wild as well, this situation seems a bit similar to Coin Bandit. LinkTheLefty (talk) 11:25, 24 October 2018 (EDT)
