In the game, Harry Hedgehog appears mainly in cave levels to get in the way of the Yoshis. When Yoshi comes close to these foes, they turn from small to all puffed up foes.

- The are slightly based upon Porcupos from Super Mario Bros. 2.
- Also, Harry Hedgehog is strongly based upon Sonic the Hedgehog and is made to mock Sonic, due to Nintendo and SEGA being brutal business rivals in the 1990s. SEGA constantly mocked Nintendo's works, making Nintendo use a comeback go with this character.
- Despite their rivalry being ended in late 2001, he still reappears in the remake Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3.
