The Tetu Kantera is an enemy that appears in Yoshi's New Island. Only one Tetu Kantera appears in the game, in the level Bandit Valley alongside a Mega Kantera. It stomps slowly from side to side on a thorn-covered ground, and will harm Yoshi if he simply touches it from the sides. If Yoshi jumps on it, he will simply bounce on the enemy. The Tetu Kantera can be swallowed and turned into a Metal Eggdozer, like Metal Guys. Another way to defeat the enemy is to hit it with a Mega Eggdozer produced from the nearby Mega Kantera.
