Yoshi Wiki

Pak E. Derm is an character from Yoshi's Story. He wears trousers and doesn't allow Yoshi to pass through certain areas. The only way Yoshi may pass this enemy is by Ground Pounding in front of him. He is only present three times in the first level. He quickly gets up when ground pounded on. This enemy also holds a "Stop" sign. According to the Melee trophy, he has practiced blocking paths for a long time.

Pak E. Derm then appears as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee, then a sticker in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Trophy description in Super Smash Bros. Melee

  • "This pesky pachyderm bars Yoshi's path by sticking poles high into the air. Pak E. Derm has been practicing this skill for years, and he's so masterful that he can even block Yoshi's high-flying Flutter Jump. Pak E. Derm is a little unstable, however, and he tends to topple over if Yoshi pounds the ground anywhere nearby."
