Super Mario World[edit]

Yoshi franchise[edit]

Starting with Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yellow Eggs are used as throwable objects. When a Yellow Egg hits an enemy, it drops one coin. Yellow Eggs can be acquired if Yoshi throws a green Yoshi Egg that recoils once from the wall, then catches it; if the Yellow Egg recoils once more, it turns red. Yellow Eggs can also be obtained from yellow Egg Blocks, though unlike the green Egg Block, Yoshi only gets one egg.
