Who is this puffball?

Hello everybody! It’s been a while since I wrote one of these sections! Blame summer.

Aaaanywaaays, welcome to another issue of Fading into Obscurity! This issue, as it is an awards issue, I've decided to look at one of our winners from the Anniversary. This month we will be looking at the winner (or loser) of the Most Underwhelming Boss Fail Award, Cloud N. Candy!

Cloud N. Candy is a boss from the 1998 game Yoshi's Story where he fights against Yoshi in the level Cloud Cruising. The reason the boss won the award is because the method of defeating him actually restores your health. By licking Cloud N. Candy, Yoshi's health is restored, which really makes this guy an Underwhelming Boss. Maybe he'll return, or maybe we'll get lucky and this guy will have truly faded into obscurity.
