Tap-Tap the Red Nose
Tap-Tap the Red Nose is the mid-boss of World 6 in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake. He was originally an ordinary Tap-Tap until Kamek cast a spell on him to make him grow gigantic. He attacks by jumping onto Yellow Yoshi, trying to hit him with his spiky body. In the room where the battle takes place, the floor is made up of rectangular blocks, which can be destroyed by throwing eggs at them. Since Tap-Tap the Red Nose is invincible to all of Yoshi's attacks, Yoshi has to defeat him by creating a gap in the floor and pushing Tap-Tap the Red Nose until he falls into the lava below.
Tap-Tap the Red Nose, like all the other bosses of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, makes a cameo appearance in the introduction sequence of Yoshi's Island DS.
