This is the fourth Extra Stage in the game.

He can push the crates through the water to also find other items, such as red coins and Special Flowers. The main enemies found in this level are Wild Piranhas and the Grim Leechers that come out of pipes.

Profile[edit]

Player's Guide description: Red sky at morning, Yoshies take warning! Things got a lot hotter for the plucky babysitter as he explores the lurid landscape of World 4. When Yoshi meets a friendly face, it belongs to Marching Milde, who would love to stomp him into the ground! Koopas and Para-Koopas patrol the terrain, but they're just a warmup for the final showstopper. To get out of this world, Yoshi will have to defeat Hookbill, the biggest and baddest Koopa of them all![1]
