Fast Grab

This fire grab is not recommended, as it is harder and slower than Awesome flower.

Boss Kill

See the Boss Kill page for more general information about Boss Kills.
Jump and stick out Yoshi's tongue on the same frame in order to get the double tongue consistently.

Boss Kill with Scroll

👀 Visual Cue:
Use this dark spike in the background to know when to stop moving left. If you see the tip, you're too far right and if the flat is lined up with the right side of the screen, you're too far left.

Normal Fly Backup

This is a rare situation, but in case there's no shell for Yoshi to fly with (e.g. after failing the Boss Kill), it is possible to normal fly through the rest of the stage without losing further time.
