Purple Yoshis also appeared in Super Mario Sunshine. Yoshis can turn purple by eating a Durian or a Pepper. While purple, they can spit juice, turning enemies into platforms that moves in a horizontal direction.
In Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, Purple Yoshi debuted with purple skin and orange shoes with an orange saddle. In the Game Boy Advance port, however, Purple Yoshi wears pink shoes.
Although Purple Yoshi has artwork for the game Yoshi's Story, and is even in the intro sequence, it is absent. Its artwork depict it with dark pink shoes and a red saddle, which would remain its design from then on, except for Super Mario Sunshine, where it wore orange shoes as the other Yoshis in that game.
In Yoshi's Island DS Purple Yoshi wears dark red shoes.
