Full name Hector the Reflector
Species Invisighoul
First appearance Yoshi's Island DS (2006)

Hector the Reflector is the third overall boss of Yoshi's Island DS. He is a strange, egg-shaped Ghost that resides in a Ghost House-like castle, filled with Boos, possessed furniture, and other supernatural creatures. His fight is unusual, taking into effect the full potential of each screen. When the fight begins, he is invisible on the top screen, but visible on the bottom. Yoshi can peek into the "mirror" bottom screen, find Hector, then throw an egg him on the top. After each hit, Hector throws a flowerpot at the bottom screen, "cracking" it. His Invisighouls minions also pick up furniture and fling it at Yoshi, but Yoshi can eat it for more eggs. After six hits, he vanishes, granting Yoshi access to the next level.

Trivia

  • Hector the Reflector gets his name from the mirror part of the battle, he is reflected in the mirror, but not anywhere else.
    • It could also be a reference to the nursery rhyme, "Hector the Protector."
