A Harry Hedgehog with spikes extended.

Harry Hedgehogs are small, quick-moving blue hedgehogs that appear in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and its remake Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3. If Yoshi gets too close to one, the hedgehog swells to a huge size, its spines sticking out. They cannot be eaten while in their defensive position. The 6th level of World 3, The Cave of Harry Hedgehog, was named after this enemy and prominently features the hedgehogs. They usually appear in cave levels.

  • This enemy is based on Sonic the Hedgehog.
    • This is likely relating to the mockeries Nintendo and Sega did to each other back in the 1990s.
