Red Door
This page refers to the shortcut after the Midway Point triggered by the Dragon Coins. For the large door from Yoshi's Island that first appears in the level Wendy the Girl, see Door (Yoshi's Island).

A Red Door, which acts as a shortcut to the Boss Path, is a door usually after the Midway Point in a Fortress or Castle. It is activated after all five of the Dragon Coins in the Boss Path are collected. It can offer quick access to the Boss Path if the player has died battling the boss.
