Watch Out Below! is the second level of the games Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. It revolves around Incoming Chomps. It also introduces pits to the game. This level's playable Yoshi is the pink Yoshi.


As the level starts, Yoshi finds himself in a field. Upon moving a bit to the right, the player notices a sign with a Incoming Chomp head on it. After moving a bit more to the right, an Incoming Chomp jumps in the direction of the player and creates a pit. After this, the player has to dodge more Incoming Chomps while collecting Special Flowers and Red Coins.

After a while of dodging, the player goes through some flippers and enter the next section of the level. After going through the Middle Ring, the player has to throw eggs at the soft rocks for them to be destroyed, a Spring Ball then falls down which leads to the next area. In the next area, Yoshi has to go through some caves until he reaches a morph bubble. After touching it, Yoshi morphs into a Helicopter. Yoshi must then fly to the Yoshi Block at the end, and then go down a Warp Pipe that leads to the final area which contains another Incoming Chomp and the Goal Ring.
