Roger the Potted Ghost is the boss of the level "The Potted Ghost's Castle" in the videogame Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.


Yoshi's Island

Roger starts out as just an ordinary, lifeless flowerpot, but when the Blue Yoshi arrives in the boss room, Kamek uses his magic to transform it into a ghost.

To defeat Roger, the Blue Yoshi must push the flowerpot that he's in into the pit at the other end of the battle arena in the same manner as a regular flowerpot. However, the two green Shy Guys behind him will try to push him in the opposite direction, which will result in the death of the Yoshi if he's pushed too far, as there is also a pit at the opposite end of the arena. Roger can also lunge at the Blue Yoshi to push him back, and spit out blue flames that will force the Yoshi to stop pushing him and get out of the way in order to avoid getting hit. When he's pushed far enough, the green Shy Guys will fall into the pit behind him and will respawn, leaving the Yoshi free to push him the rest of the way without resistance.

The previous boss is Bigger Boo, and the next one is Prince Froggy.
