A Yellow Egg[1][2] (also formatted as yellow egg)[3] is a type of Yoshi's Egg found in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (and its reissue), Yoshi's Island DS, Yoshi's New Island, and Yoshi's Crafted World. Yellow Eggs are used as throwable objects. When a Yellow Egg hits an enemy, it drops one coin. Yellow Eggs can be acquired if a Yoshi throws a Green 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-spotted Egg Blocks, though unlike with a green-spotted Egg Block, a Yoshi gets only one egg.
