Bouncing Burts are round, peach-colored enemies with large red noses and have blue and white striped pants that go up to their eyes. They appeared in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 and Yoshi's Island DS. Bouncing Burts attack in pairs. After jumping on its partner, a Bouncing Burt will get a big boost, and the same goes for a Yoshi if it jumps on a Bouncing Burt. If one was defeated, the other would jump non-stop. Notable Bouncing Burts include Burt the Bashful and also the Big Burt Bros.. If defeated, will give two Stars or three Coins. They can be disposed with an egg or, though tough, a ground pound. They can't be eaten however. Burt the Bashful was originally a normal sized Bouncing Burt but was made bigger by Kamek. They always travel in groups of two.


  • Bouncing Burts are among the few Yoshi's Island enemies to not reappear in Yoshi's New Island.
