Tap-Tap the Red Nose is a notable member of the Tap-Taps in the Yoshi series. His most notable feature is his red nose. He also is grey with red shoes and silver spikes.


Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's IslandEdit

Tap-Tap the Red Nose first appears as a boss in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island of World 6.

When first encountered, Kamek, like always, confronts Yellow Yoshi and uses his magic to make Tap-Tap the Red Nose grow to a gigantic proportion. The area itself takes place with red, green and yellow bricks pasted together and with Tap-Tap the Red Nose in the centre.

Once battled, Tap-Tap the Red Nose attempts to injure Yellow Yoshi with his spikes. Aside that, there are platforms that Yellow Yoshi may hop onto to evade Tap-Tap the Red Nose, and tulips releasing eggs, as they are required. Tap-Tap the Red Nose then jumps on the platforms, trying to get Yellow Yoshi. Because Tap-Tap the Red Nose is immune to Yellow Yoshi's attacks, Yellow Yoshi must destroy the bricks. Though, Tap-Tap the Red Nose does get knocked back by an egg thrown at him, but is rathermore immune and cannot be defeated with eggs. Destroying enough of these bricks results in Tap-Tap the Red Nose to fall into the lava below the bricks so he may be defeated.



  • His name and shiny red nose is based on Rudolph the Red Nosed Raindeer.
  • Tap-Tap the Golden is most likely Tap-Tap the Red Nose revived as Nintendo Power states Tap-Tap the Golden is back, but could possibly refer to Tap-Tap the Red Nose. This mean Tap-Tap the Golden is possibly the second form of Tap-Tap the Red Nose.
