A Yoshi Platform is a flat rectangular prism created when a Yoshi sprays its juice on enemies (such as Boos and Cheep-Cheeps) from Super Mario Sunshine. It is the same color as the Yoshi spitting the juice, and it moves according to its color. Pink platforms move vertically upward, purple ones move horizontally, and orange platforms stay where they are. All three types disappear after a short while. Block Boos can make a Yoshi Platform when sprayed with FLUDD, not just juice. Mario and a Yoshi can use the platforms to get to faraway areas. They are mainly used in the episodes Yoshi's Fruit Adventure in Ricco Harbor and The Hotel Lobby's Secret in Sirena Beach.
Two enemies, Block Boos and Cheep-Cheeps, always revert to their regular appearances. Some enemies, such as the Cataquack, are instantly defeated when reverting from their platform forms to their regular forms. Other enemies, such as the giant Strollin' Stu and Sleepy Boos, are completely immune to a Yoshi's juice and therefore cannot become platforms.
