“Yellow pipes are for travel between the seafloor and the surface or between above- and belowground. There are lots in ocean and desert areas, so when you’re in those regions, jump in the yellow pipes!”
Yellow Pipes are specific types of Warp Pipes in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They are found throughout the Beanbean Kingdom, notably around Oho Ocean and Teehee Valley. They are used to directly connect the surface and the underground. Unlike regular Warp Pipes, they do not automatically transport Mario and Luigi from one end to the other. If they enter it from the top, they immediately fall down. If they want to climb back up, and must be pressed and held at the same time, which makes them interlock arms and walk up the Yellow Pipe's sides. Around Oho Ocean, Yellow Pipes lead to the seabed, while in Teehee Valley, they lead to underground ruins. While Princess Peach is being escorted through Teehee Valley, she is brought through these Pipes and into one of the ruins if a Gritty Goomba captures her.
