Togetoge Iwa (described as "weights"[1], "spiked blocks"[2], or "spiked stones"[3]) are angry-faced weapons similar to Thwomps, appearing in the final pages in Yoshi's Story, where they are carried by the black Shy Guys inside Bowser's Castle. If a Yoshi walks near the black Shy Guys, they will release it, and it will crush whatever is beneath it. They appear in the levels Lift Castle, Ghost Castle, and Mecha Castle.

"A Black Shy Affair When you try to shoot a black Shy Guy, the giant weight he carries will deflect your shot. Rather than going for a direct hit, let your egg’s explosion take out the Shy Guy. Place your targeting cursor near the Shy Guy’s head, then fire. If the blast hits the Shy Guy, he’ll drop his spiked weight so you can leap over it. Once you’ve hopped over the third weight, flutter and hover until the cloud stops puffing air or you’ll be blown off the ledge."
