Effect Yoshi enters his egg and rolls across the stage, damaging opponents in his way.

Egg Roll (ごろごろたまご) is Yoshi's side special move in Super Smash Flash 2.


When performed, Yoshi withdraws into his egg and rolls into the direction he is facing at a fixed speed, which is faster on the ground than in the air. While in the egg, the player can change direction by pressing the opposite directional input, and they can also jump by pressing the jump key, both of which can only be done on the ground. Pressing an attack button or rolling for ling enough will break the egg. However, Yoshi does not enter a helpless state whenever he rolls off a ledge, allowing him to recover. The grounded variant of the move deals 6% damage and small knockback to opponents hit, while the aerial variant deals 10% damage and slightly higher knockback. Egg Roll can also out-prioritize low-priority projectiles.


Egg Roll Origin

A blue Yoshi using the Turbo Tulip in Yoshi's Story.

The move seems to be unique to the Super Smash Bros. series, but may be based on Yoshi's Story where upon eating a Turbo Tulip, Yoshi could encase himself into an egg and fling himself at enemies, out-of-reach objects, or distant locations. The Egg Roll would later appear in the Mario series as a special move in Mario Power Tennis and Mario Strikers Charged.



Early design


  • In previous demos, Yoshi would not regain his second jump when using Egg Roll to land on the stage. The devs said this was done to prevent anti-stalling due to attack being considered so good.
