Blue Yoshis (also called Dark Blue Yoshis) are a color variation of the Yoshi species.
Super Mario series
Super Mario World
If a Yoshi of any color manages to find Yoshi's Wings, it will turn into a Blue Yoshi and fly up to a bonus stage. After Mario and the now-Blue Yoshi complete the bonus stage, the wings will be lost, though the Blue Yoshi will retain its new coloration.
In the Game Boy Advance remake, Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World, a Yoshi will not change its color upon finding Yoshi's Wings. Also, once the Baby Blue Yoshi from Star World is found, Blue Yoshis can be found in lieu of where Green Yoshis normally are if Cape Mario hits a ? Block containing a Yoshi Egg.
Super Mario 64 DS
In Super Mario 64 DS, the third player in VS. Mode controls a Blue Yoshi. Blue Yoshis don't have any unique ability in the game, as all Yoshis have the same abilities.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii
New Super Mario Bros. U
Though general Blue Yoshis don't appear in New Super Mario Bros. U, blue-colored Baby Yoshis known as Bubble Baby Yoshis do. They have the ability to spit Bubbles at enemies, turning them into Coins, a Power-Up or a 1-Up Mushroom.
Super Mario Run
Blue Yoshi was made available as a playable character in Super Mario Run following the release of the version 2.0.0 update on March 22, 2017. It can be unlocked after purchasing Blue Yoshi's House from the Kingdom Builder shop for 800 coins, which only becomes available if the player has collected 50 Red Toads and 50 Blue Toads.
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island / Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3
In Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, a Blue Yoshi is playable on the Castle of every world, except for level 6-8, King Bowser's Castle, in which a Green Yoshi takes his place. This makes Blue Yoshis the least used of the Yoshis.
Yoshi's Woolly World / Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World
Blue Yoshi appears in Yoshi's Woolly World and Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World as an unlockable Yoshi design. It is unlocked along with other plain-colored Yoshi designs after defeating Mega Baby Bowser in King Bowser's Castle.
Super Smash Bros. series
Blue Yoshis also appear in the Super Smash Bros. series. Although not playable in Super Smash Bros., a Blue Yoshi appears with the Yoshi team in 1-Player Mode. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Blue Yoshis appear as a recolor for the regular Yoshi. A Blue Yoshi also represents the blue team in team battles. A Blue Yoshi also appears as a Sticker in the third installment of the series.
Paper Mario series
Blue Yoshis are also present (and live) in the Yoshi's Village on Lavalava Island, featured in the first game of the series. One blue Yoshi is the parent of the blue Yoshi kid of Fearsome 5; the other is the shopkeeper of Yoshi's Cabana.
In the sequel, one of the Yoshi Kid's colors is blue. The Blue Yoshi Kid will be obtained if the amount of time that passes between the point where its egg joins Mario's party atop the hot dog stand to when Mario eventually meets the newborn dinosaur after running from the Armored Harriers is between nine and eleven minutes.
Mario Tennis series
Mario Power Tennis
In Mario Power Tennis, Yoshi can change colors every time he performs a Rolling Egg Return, provided the player has completed the Flower Cup with any character. One of the colors that Yoshi can turn into is blue.
Mario Tennis Open
Mario Tennis Aces
In Mario Tennis Aces, a Blue Yoshi appears as a spectator.
The game's version 2.1.0 update added Blue Yoshi as a playable color swap of Yoshi. This variant is used by the second player in the Yoshi's Ring Shot co-op challenge, although it can be unlocked for use in other modes by accumulating 20,000 points in the aforementioned co-op challenge. Unlike in Mario Tennis Open, Blue Yoshi has the same green racket as the green Yoshi. Also, Blue Yoshi's Egg Roll uses a blue Yoshi Egg.
Mario Super Sluggers
In Mario Super Sluggers, a Blue Yoshi makes its baseball debut as a color variant for Yoshi. In Challenge Mode, a Blue Yoshi can be found in Yoshi Park. It gives the player several questions in order to figure out the combination for the gate. Afterwards correctly answering the questions, it will join Mario on his quest. The Blue Yoshi has the weakest batting abilities among all Yoshis, but that is compensated by its pitching, where it ranks first among the Yoshis (being tied with the team captain Yoshi).
Mario Sports Mix
Mario Kart 8 / Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
In Mario Kart 8, Blue Yoshi appears as an alternate skin for Yoshi. It is available through purchasing both the Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing DLC packs. In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Blue Yoshi is available from the start. Blue Yoshi is the 200cc staff ghost for Super Bell Subway.
In Super Mario World, Blue Yoshis had dark blue skin, orange gloves, brown shoes, and a brown saddle. For the sequel, Blue Yoshis' look remained almost the same, but the shoes were recolored purple while the saddle was recolored red. The shoes' color was changed again for the Game Boy Advance port, this time to pink.
From Yoshi's Story and on, Blue Yoshis have appeared with magenta shoes and a red saddle. In Yoshi's Island's sequel, Yoshi's Island DS, and Yoshi Touch & Go, the skin tone for Blue Yoshis was darkened.
