Effect Yoshi takes out and tosses an egg in an upward arc to damage opponents with it.

Egg Toss (たまご投げ), also referred to as Egg Throw, is Yoshi's up special move in Super Smash Flash 2.


When performed, Yoshi pulls out an egg and then throws it in an upward arc. As Yoshi throws it, the egg's direction can be angled left, making Yoshi throw the egg upwards or backwards, and right, making Yoshi throw the egg forwards. The speed and distance covered by the egg can be increased the longer the special button is held while Yoshi throws the egg, and the eggs thrown will not break until they hit a surface or an opponent. Opponents hit by an egg are dealt 8% damage with weak knockback, regardless of the egg's speed, direction, or distance traveled. This move also gives Yoshi negligible vertical height each time it is used in the air and does not put him into a helpless state, making it somewhat useful for recovery.

Tossing eggs is a recurring ability Yoshi has throughout the Yoshi games. Starting in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Yoshi has had the ability to eat enemies to turn them into eggs, much like he does with Egg Lay, and then throw the eggs at other enemies. The eggs would fly straight, bouncing off walls and skimming across water. In Yoshi's Story, eggs stopped bouncing and instead exploded upon reaching the point of the aiming cursor; the size of the explosion was based on the Yoshi's happiness and color. Yoshi can carry six eggs at a time, though objects such as keys take up room.

In SSF2, thrown eggs arc due to gravity. The only time this occurs in a non-spinoff game is the final battle against Giant Baby Bowser in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, where Yoshi throws giant eggs into the background; in all other instances eggs fly in straight lines, ignoring gravity.
