Pak Elephant Derm, or Pak E. Derm (とうさんぞう) for short, is an elephant-like creature that appears as an enemy in Yoshi's Story.

Character description

Pak E. Derm is one of the first enemies that Yoshi encounters in Yoshi's Story, and he only appears three times in the first level. He holds up a large red sign with a white hand on it that Yoshi is unable to pass, and if Yoshi tries to take another route, Pak E. Derm will guard that path instead. In order to get past, Yoshi must Ground Pound the ground, causing the Pak E. Derm to fall over for a short period of time and allowing Yoshi to pass while he is down.

The creature's shortened name, Pak E. Derm, is a pun on the word pachyderm, a term which is no longer in use; it refers to an obsolete taxonomic order of animals in biology that included elephants, whence Pak E. Derm's appearance was inspired.

In Super Smash Flash 2

In Super Smash Flash 2, Pak E. Derm appears as a background character on Yoshi's Story. He appears behind the trees on the stage's main platform, where he slowly walks back and forth while holding his sign.
