A Tree Heihō in Yoshi's New Island

Tree Heihō are tree-carrying Shy Guys from Yoshi's New Island. The tree can be identified by its noticeable stubby length. When Yoshi is within proximity on-screen, the Tree Heihō pops out from underneath the tree and uproots it to move it from Yoshi. The Tree Heihō can escape off-screen, so Yoshi must defeat it in time in order to save the tree or jump on the tree while it is being carried away. The tree is used as a platform to access higher areas, which often contain certain items. The Tree Heihō and its tree respawn if the player backtracks and reloads the section, so it cannot be permanently missed during a stage's playthrough.
