The Cave Of Chomp Rock is the third level of World 1 in the games Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. The level revolves around Chomp Rocks and the appearance of Nipper Plants. This level's playable Yoshi is the light-blue Yoshi.


Light Blue Yoshi starts off in a field with a huge pipe in the middle, which leads into a cave. After getting into it, Yoshi encounters a Chomp Rock. The Chomp Rock collides against a small pole of sorts and Yoshi must follow it. Yoshi may destroy a small box to the right of the Message Block teaching Ground Pounds to collect five Stars. After this, Yoshi must continue forward and will encounter Nipper Plants. There are also some coins scattered around, which Yoshi can collect. After this, Yoshi encounters the second Message Block in the level. Now Yoshi needs to proceed forward, before encountering a spot in which there are several mushrooms. If Yoshi keeps going down, he will find a Special Flower, as well as two Red Coins and two Lantern Ghosts. The level continues its maze-like structure until the end, with Nipper Plants. A key can be found in the level which opens a door, where Yoshi can play a minigame for a 1-UP. The key is held by a Fly Guy in an area with two red mushrooms and a blue one, in which Nipper Plants fall from above as spores and there is a single Lantern Ghost.

Once Yoshi is outside, he is in the field again. There are two Wild Piranhas and a Fly Guy holding a 1-UP in this area. After that, the level ends.
