Tap-Tap the Red Nose is a notable member of the Tap-Taps in the Yoshi series. His most notable feature is his red nose. He also is grey with red shoes and silver spikes.


Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Tap-Tap the Red Nose first appears as a boss in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island of World 6.

He was originally an ordinary Tap-Tap until Kamek cast a spell on him to make him grow gigantic. He attacks by jumping onto Yoshi, trying to hit him with his spiky body. In the room where the battle takes place, the floor is made up of rectangular blocks, which can be destroyed by throwing eggs at them. Since he is invincible to all of Yoshi's attacks, Yoshi has to defeat him by creating a gap in the floor and pushing him until he falls into the lava below.



  • His name and shiny red nose is based on Rudolph the Red Nosed Raindeer.
  • Tap-Tap the Golden is most likely Tap-Tap the Red Nose revived as Nintendo Power states Tap-Tap the Golden is back, but could possibly refer to Tap-Tap the Red Nose. This mean Tap-Tap the Golden is possibly the second form of Tap-Tap the Red Nose.
