Goonies are enemies throughout the Yoshi series. Sometimes, they carry bombs, which they drop when Yoshi is near. Other times, they appear in the background of levels. Goonies are oval-shaped birds with yellow beaks. Curiously, their call sounds like saying "hello".
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's IslandEdit
Goonie first appears in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.
In the game, these foes usually appear in mountain-based levels in groups, only flying in a straight line while sometimes carrying specific sorts of items.
Subspecies for Goonie exist in the game. One is Flightless Goonie, a Goonie lacking wings and one that cannot fly. There is also a Dry Bones-like Goonie named Skeleton Goonie also having a flightless species. The Skeleton Goonie is usually known to carry bombs. Another Goonie subspecies called Bowling Goonie exists in the game. This Goonie is fat and can roll around like a Chomp Rock. It's flying version is Very Goonie which turns back into a Bowling Goonie once swallowed and spat back out.
Goonie reappears and makes its second appearance in Tetris Attack.
During the game, Goonie is allied in a tetris match with Lakitu. He is, unlike others, a true enemy in the game.
Goonie reappears in Yoshi's Story, first appearing in the level Poochy and Nippy and finally in Shy Guy's Ship. It only appears in these two levels. If this bird is hit by a Yoshi egg or goes to the end of the screen, another will appear. A number of Goonies fly in different directions and altitudes.
