Yashichi[1] (generically referred to by Nintendo Power as sharp objects[2]) are spinning blades that appear in Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins. Two of them appear in the first stage of the Mario Zone, where they spin on tracks, damaging Mario if he touches it. They cannot be destroyed by fireballs, but can be destroyed by Green Shells.
