The Beanish are the occupants of the Beanbean Kingdom, an ally of the Mushroom Kingdom located to the south of it, and who make their debut in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. The Beanish people are of the Beanbean Kingdom as Toads are of the Mushroom Kingdom. Beanish have green skin, with some having huge mouths, and are generally quick to laughter. The Beanish may be able to live for many, many years, as is evidenced by the fact that Bubbles spent one thousand years pleasing the Chuckola Reserve. The Beanish are more protective of their borders than the Toads, and their government seems less aloof than that of the Mushroom Kingdom, as seen by the Beanbean posts in Hoohoo Village.

The Hoohooligans and Clumphs are related species, but feature noticeably different physiology compared to typical Beanish. There is also a Beanish-like pet species called Beanlets, as well as an unnamed green dog seen accompanying an unnamed Beanish miner on Hoohoo Mountain. The Beanish may be related to the ancient Soybean civilization.

The many variants of Beanish as seen in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

Beanish people return in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. They are seen around Pi'illo Island. Many of them are on vacation, traveling from the Beanbean Kingdom. Two other Beanish characters also appear in other games in the Mario & Luigi series aside from the first: Fawful appears in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time as a shopkeeper and is a main antagonist of Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, and Popple reappears in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

The characters Podley and Podler from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door slightly resembles the Beanish people, but it is unknown if they actually are related to the species.
