    World I
    
    Boss 1: Burt The Bashful's Fort
    Located on block: 1-4
    
    This fight isn't to tough. As soon as the fight starts, get down in the lower right
    hand corner of the screen. There should be a little ditch. Stay down in there and
    if Burt comes right above you, duck. When you get a chance, hit him with an egg. You
    will see the blue part of his stomach go down. There is a plant in the middle, so when
    Burt moves away, you can restock on eggs if you need them. This battle shouldn't be to
    hard at all. Just follow the procedure and you'll make out fine.
    
    Boss 2: Salvo The Slime's Castle
    Located on block: 1-8
    
    When the fight starts, immediately shoot him with an egg. If your lucky, when the egg
    bounces off the wall, it will hit him again. You may lose Baby Mario in this battle.
    Mainly because this dumb slimeball will charge right into you. If he's small, then it
    will be easy to avoid. But when he's big, if he TRIES coming at you, try jumping on his
    head. You can't get hurt when jumping on top of him. The more you hit him, the more
    little slimeballs will come out and you can use them to make eggs. Just keep shooting him
    until he is nothing more.

    World II
    
    Boss 3: Bigger Boo's Fort
    Located on block: 2-4
    
    This fight is, well....Easy! When the fight starts, aim an egg at the wall and shoot it off
    so it will hit the Big Boo. Each time he gets hit, he grows. So basically, stay at the middle
    part of the room bounces eggs off the wall into him. Then look straight at him to stop him
    from coming at you. You can run right through him when he is invisible. You can pull this
    fight off without even losing Mario.
    
    Boss 4: The Potted Ghost's Castle
    Locasted on block: 2-8
    
    This fight is pretty simple. PUSH PUSH PUSH! As soon as the fight starts, start pushing. When
    he moves back to push you away, no need to run, it doesnt hurt you. Just keep pushing. Two
    Shy Guys will be pushing him back towards you, but very slow. The only time you should wait
    is when he blows out blue fire. Wait for it to clear up then begin pushing again. This fight
    isn't hard at all and you will probably do just fine.

    World III
    
    Boss 5: Prince Froggy's Fort
    Located on block: 3-4
    
    Mmmmmm, isn't it just GREAT being eaten by a frog? When you enter this room, you'll see that
    Yoshi AND Baby Mario are shrunk to about half the size of a egg. Believe me, that is SMALL.
    Then, to top it off, that damn Frog eats you. So you are now in his stomach. The main point
    in this battle is to eat the giant shy guys that are tossed down at you, digest them into
    eggs, and hit Prince Froggy's Tonsils. Sound simple? It's not. That Frog must suffer from
    some serious heartburn because drops of fire start dropping into its stomach. The more you
    hit him, the more fire will fall at a time. So it may be hard to get a perfect 100 on this
    level. On top of that, avoiding the fire may be hard, because it can be a little slippery
    in his stomach. Yoshi will sometimes fall around like he does when he dizzy. Just keep making
    the giant shy guys eggs and shooting them at his tonsils. If you damage him enough, you will
    win, and will get back your full size, on top of giving him a major stomach ache. That'll
    teach him to eat Yoshi.
    
    Boss 6: Naval Piranha's Castle
    Located on block: 3-8
    
    Now this fight may seem a little hard at first, but once you know what to do, it can really
    be quite easy. You will see that the little Piranha Plant has grown up...GREATLY. This thing
    is huge. Well, when it arises from the water, look down, you will see a swolen spot with an
    "X" on it. That is the place you have to hit. When I first did this battle, I would aim, stop
    the aimer at a straight angle, and jump down in the water and shoot. But there is actually a
    MUCH easier way to do it. When it takes it's protective mini stems from in fron of the swolen
    "X" mark, look the opposite way towards the wall, aim down at the wall, and shoot. The egg
    will bounce off the wall, and glide along the water and hit the weak spot. Hurting it. But
    don't get this fight wrong, there is more to it. The Piranha will put it's head down and charge
    you. So you have to jump over him. Sometimes he will charge half way, and go back in an attempt
    to fake you out. So try and be sure what he is going to do. He will also shoot three parachute
    type things up in the air. Let them fall and hit the ground, if the one closest to you is in
    danger of hitting you, just eat it and let the other two hit. When they hit, you will be able
    to make eggs out of them. So don't worry about running out. Just follow the strategy I stated
    above and you will do just fine.

    World IV
    
    Boss 7: Marching Milde's Fort
    Located on block: 4-4
    
    This is, perhaps, one of the most fun boss fights in the entire game, along with being one of
    the easiest. Kamek(The Which who keeps creating these bosses)will make the marching guy grow
    to a giant size. But don't worry, you can easily get on top of him. When on top of him, you
    can either bounce around like a trampoline, or mess him up. When on top of him, perform a hip
    drop(Jump up in the air and hit down). Yoshi will plummet down and go right through him. This
    will split the boss in two. Do the hip drop again to the other two Milde's and they will be
    split in four. Keep doing this until they shrink to normal size. Then you can just keep jumping
    on them until they die. This fight is pretty easy.
    
    Boss 8: Hookbill The Koopa's Castle
    Located on block: 4-8
    
    This fight isn't too tough. A regular Koopa will be turned giant. So how do you kill him? To
    kill him, when he stand up tall, start hitting him in the chin with eggs, over and over again,
    until you knock him on his back. Then, jump no his stomach and do a hip drop(Jump and hit Down)
    this will damage him. Watch out though, he can charge at you and jump across the screen at you.
    So it can be kind of hard. If you want an egg refill jump on his shell, when he is on all fours
    and keep bouncing. He will cough out all the eggs you need. Winning this fight is quite easy.
    Trying not to get hit can be quite difficult.
    
    ~~~
    
    World V
    
    Boss 9: Sluggy The Unshaven's Fort
    Located on block: 5-4
    
    The key word in this fight is time. If your not quick, your gonna die. When you enter the boss
    room, stock up on eggs from the plant to the left. Then go confront the slug. Kamek will make
    him a giant. When he turns giant, you will see his heart through his body. So you must keep
    bombarding him with eggs. Keep shooting towards his heart, each egg will knock the front part
    of his body in a little bit more. Some of the eggs will bounce back, so you can just grab them.
    When his body is knocked in enough, lay the final egg and it will hit his heart. Keep repeating
    this until you kill him. But after each time you hit him, run back and stock up on eggs. You
    must be QUICK, because he is slowly advancing on you. If your not quick, he's going to push
    you off the side of the cliff and your going to die. So be quick when reloading eggs.
    
    Boss 10: Raphael The Raven's Castle
    Located on block: 5-8
    
    This fight can be easy, or it can be hard. Depending on how you take it. The battle starts
    when you and the Raven are tossed onto a giant circle/globe thing. It has to stakes sticking
    out of it. The Raven is basically the same size as you, if not bigger. The key to this fight
    is to run around the globe, trying to keep him on the other side. He will stop eventually. When
    he stops on the opposite side of a stake, hip drop it(Jump and hit down), and it will go in,
    and part of it will come out the other side, which will stab the Raven. He will jump and make
    two fire balls rotate around the globe every once in a while, so just jump when he does that.
    No eggs are needed for this battle, so just try to keep pounding stakes into him for the
    victory.

    World VI
    
    Boss 11: Tap-Tap The Red Nose's Fort
    Located on block: 6-4
    
    This battle can be tough. The way to win is really pretty simple. You must take advantage of
    the monster's stupidity. He will jump around the level wrecklessly trying to get you. So to win
    you must shoot the floor, which is made of blocks eggs can break. Shoot the floor while
    avoiding Tap-Tap(What kind of name is that?). When you break enough of the floor off, lure him
    to the bottom and he will most likely jump in the lava beneath. Then you can watch and laugh as
    he struggle, but only DIES!
    
    Boss 12: King Bowser's Castle
    Located on block: 6-8
    
    Part 1: Baby Bowser
    
    Ok, this fight isn't tough at all. Kamek will be petrified that Yoshi is there, Baby Bowser
    will wake up, and smash Kamek. Have fun laughing at this part. Baby Bowser will then trash talk
    Yoshi by saying he wants a ride. Then the fight begins. Baby Bowser will keep hip dropping
    directly above Yoshi, so you better move. When he hits, the floor will go both ways of him,
    like a wave, so stay in the air until its over. AS SOON as hes done himp dropping, jump between
    him and the wave and hip drop the floor(Hit down while in the air). The floor will go towards
    HIM now. If done fast enough, it will hurt hiom. If NOT done fast enough, when he plops up to
    give you a hip drop again, the floor won't hurt him. So you must be quick. Do this, while
    avoiding him and the floor, and you will advance on. After three hits, Kamek will come and
    turn him into SUPER GIANT GALLACTIC Baby Bowser!
    
    Part 2: SUPER GIANT GALLACTIC Baby Bowser
    
    Just as his name implies, he is Super Giant! He is in front of you, so you must shoot giant
    eggs forward. You get the giant egg from balloons that float by, carrying them. When the battle
    starts, you will see Giant Bowser arises in front of you. He summons a bunch of rocks to fall
    and collapse what your standing on. It only crushes and takes away parts of what Yoshi has to
    stand on, and it tells you what part is going to be taken away by pointing an arrow. So don't
    go near it until the rock falls, or you'll get sucked down and die. When the rock falling
    ceremony is over, get ready to rumble! Go from side to side looking for egg carrying balloons.
    Grab one when you find it and aim. The aim will be going up and down, in front of you. So to
    hit Bowser, you need to positiong it just right. Not to high, but not to low. If you aim to
    high it will go over his head, to low will hit his stomach and wont do damage. You have to hit
    him in his face. He wil be shooting fire balls at you too, so watch out. When you hit him, he
    will sometimes start to run forward at you, so he will be increasing in size. That will make
    it easier to kill him. Keep grabbing eggs and shooting him in his face. After enough hits, he
    will make more rocks collapse the platform, which gives less room to move around. But still,
    keep up the same routine and you will pull off a win. Baby Bowser will fall onto the platform
    and Kamek will call you a "Meanie". Yeah, like she has room to talk. Run all the way to the
    right and save the stork and Luigi. Then sit back and watch the ending. Have Fun!
