A White Yoshi first appeared as an playable character in Yoshi's Story. One can be found in Stage 3-2: The Tall Tower.
In this game, they, like the Black Yoshis, can eat things that normal Yoshis cannot, like Red Peppers and Black Shy Guys. White Yoshis can also flutter further when they're a Super Happy Yoshi, and fire eggs that explode when their happy meter is full. Also, while the Black Yoshi has the lowest pitched voice, White Yoshi has the highest pitched voice. White Yoshi is said to not have the ability to dance.
