Haha, the Pink Dragon is called Birdo.
When he (yes, male, according to the instruction booklet) shoots eggs at you, jump on the egg and pick it up like a vegetable to throw at him. Three hits and he's gone, I think.
Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

I've ALWAYS thought Birdo was a boy, but in the SNES remake on Super Mario All-Stars, they added a bow to the top of his head to clear up that "it" is a girl, and in all subsequent games, too, I think.

No, Birdo always had the bow, which is what makes it most disturbing.
From the instruction book for Mario 2.

Guys can wear bows too.

hmmm...maybe it was Ostro, then?
EDIT: Oh, now I see read bob_newman's post, near the bottom of the pagestill, I could have sworn "birdo" didn't have a bow in the game...

Maybe, but they can't spit eggs from their mouths. Only girls.
Further evidence that Birdo is the most disturbing character Nintendo has ever created:

wow. That's actually scary. Like it's from a movie like V for Vendetta except all the badguys are wearing that

Isn't it odd that Birdo went from male cross-dressing, gender-confused, egg-spitting dinosaur to the female equivalent of Yoshi, which, by the way, are all males that lay eggs (including the pink ones)?THE MORE YOU KNOW

Oh yeah, I remember playing this on the original NES. I died like 12 times on Birdo (or Ostro).

I actually think the fact that Birdo was mentioned as 'Ostro' in the game manual must have been a typo, since there's already another enemy named Ostro in the game. Basically it's an ostrich-like foe that you can actually ride (in fact, in later levels the Shy Guys sometimes do just that!)THE MORE YOU KNOW

Wait so does that mean Yoshi's a girl.

No, it means you're a girl.

Actually, all of the Yoshi are males, whilst all of the Birdos are females. They do have similarities; they come in a variety of colours, they both reproduce by laying/spitting eggs that have coloured spots on them, they even have the same basic torso and limb shape! The only major differences include gender (Yoshi being males and Birdos being females) and abilities (Yoshi throw eggs and flutter-jump whilst Birdos spit eggs and speak with a slightly-annoying voice). It is entirely possible that they are variants of the same species (Yoshirdo), but so far this has not been confirmed.THE MORE YOU KNOW

Yep. THAT enemy is named "Birdo" in the manual. The reference to the name "Birdetta" in "Ostro"'s profile should make things clear even for people not aple to make the connection between ostriches and "Ostro", though.

Actually, it's funny how Subcon was just a world in a dream of Mario's, which doesn't exactly explain how Birdos keep popping up in the real (Mushroom Kingdom) world...anybody else confused as well?
