Yosu Ko is the second stage found in Mario & Wario. Yoshis are seen relaxing in the background with their children; as such, this area may be located on Yoshi's Island. Wario uses half of a cracked Yoshi Egg to subdue the character.

LEVEL 2-1[edit]

First course.

This is a basic course that involves Wanda getting her character up a few elevators using Flip-Flop Blocks while watching out for spikes and collecting Stars. Luigi is at the top left.

LEVEL 2-2[edit]

Second course.

The player starts in the bottom-right corner, in front of them is three elevators, and some Flip-Flop Blocks to save falling time of the elevators. The player must watch out for spikes while activating the blocks. This level introduce the hidden Flip-Flop Blocks, five of them are found in the top-right corner of the level, they must be activated in order to collect the third Star.

LEVEL 2-3[edit]

Third course.

This course has Rock Blocks and Jump Blocks, as well as a new obstacle - Dodorigesu Jr. These little black birds are immobile and can simply be clicked away.

LEVEL 2-4[edit]

Fourth course.

This course contains a series of floating footholds with Jump Blocks and Flip-Flop Blocks suspended over a pit lined with spikes. The path is still mostly linear, with some complexity arising should the player try to obtain all the Stars.

LEVEL 2-5[edit]

Fifth course.

The character starts at the top right with the Luigi goal lying directly beneath them, but there is another spike pit. The layout suggests following a series of gradually descending Flip-Flop Blocks, which lead to Stars and Coin Blocks. The ideal path also splits between left and right; right leads the player to a Star and a Jump Block to restart the path.

LEVEL 2-6[edit]

Sixth course.

This course is similar to LEVEL 2-4, but with narrower platforms and trickier Star spots.

LEVEL 2-7[edit]

Seventh course.

This course starts out with a more complicated presentation but several previous elements in one area, but once the player breaks through some Rock Blocks and reaches the bottom, the path to Luigi becomes easier with simple Flip-Flop Blocks, although spikes are present.

LEVEL 2-8[edit]

Eighth course.

This course has tiny Flip-Flop and Rock Blocks, leading the player to do more work while avoiding several Dodorigesu Jr. and spikes. However, Wanda only needs to break the bottom Rock Block on the ground for her character to be able to pass through.

LEVEL 2-9[edit]

Ninth course.

This course has the same concept as LEVEL 2-5, but with the goal in the bottom right, tiny Flip-Flop Blocks and more scattered Stars.

LEVEL 2-10[edit]

Tenth course.

In this cramped space, Wanda's character begins in the bottom right between two elevators. There are many elevators, Flip-Flop and Jump Blocks in here. One of the Jump Blocks leads directly to Luigi, who is on his own disconnected platform. Grabbing all the Stars requires more time and effort.
