Big Bungee Piranha's Lair is the eighth and final level of World 2 in Yoshi's Island DS where Big Bungee Piranha is the boss. It takes place inside of a sewer instead of a scary castle like all other final levels in every other world. Dizzy Dandies make their debut, as well as Wall Lakitus. This level is similar to Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island's Naval Piranha's Castle.


Yoshi starts the level in a rocky place with a Shy Guy-producing pipe nearby. He has to enter another pipe and appear in a sewer-like area with a multitude of On-Off Switches. The player has to navigate through a switch network and continue on to the next area which houses a Stork Stop, an Egg Block, and a few enemies. After getting past another switch network, the Yoshi reaches an enemy infested area which eventually leads him outside. The player will have to reach the end of the area and use a Chomp Rock to be able to enter a nearby pipe. In this area, Yoshi will have to repeatedly hit a Gobblin with eggs until it is defeated, allowing him passage to the next area. Here, Yoshi can find a Middle Ring and an Egg Block which are followed by a maze-like area filled with enemies. After that, the player will find a Middle Ring, a Stork Stop, and the boss door which leads to the fight with Big Bungee Piranha. Yoshi can defeat it by leading it to bite a Chomp Rock and then hitting its tongue with an egg. After this, he can continue on to World 3.

BOSS: Big Bungee Piranha

Big Bungee Piranha is a normal Bungee Piranha that has been enlarged by Kamek's magic. He starts off by spitting Nipper Spores at you which grow into Nipper Plants for Yoshi to swallow. Bungee Piranha then starts munching, after this it will start moving around and then will set it's target on Yoshi. Move the Chomp Rock in it's target radius (or stand near the Chomp Rock) when he is targeting you. He will then chew down on the Chomp Rock and get dizzy. Hit his injured mouth with an Egg. After two hits, he is much faster. You will need to be right next to the Chomp Rock at this point as he will chow down about a second after. When he's dizzy this time, Yoshi now has less time to actually hit him. Hit Big Bungee Piranha with an egg one more time to finish him off.
