Watermelon Seed Spitting Contest is a Mini Battle featured in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its reissue. A Yoshi and a Bandit must spit watermelon projectiles at each other. The minigame starts with the Yoshi next to a watermelon on a pot. The player can swallow a green watermelon and spit out seeds. The Bandit now has a Yoshi mask on, so the Bandit can spit seeds as well. The Yoshi must spit the seeds at the Bandit, which hides behind walls. At random, a red watermelon may come up, and it can severely damage the opponent. If the Yoshi wins the minigame, he gets a Super Green Watermelon, Super Red Watermelon, or Super Blue Watermelon item card at random. Using the cheat code to access the Bandit minigames from the world map unlocks a two-player variation of the minigame.

This Mini Battle can be played behind the locked door of the shack in the stage The Cave Of The Mystery Maze.
