“What're YOU lookin' at? If you wanna challenge me, you have to bring Cookies!”
Boshi, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

Boshi is a loner Blue Yoshi, and the rival of Yoshi. Boshi, like many other Yoshis, can only speak the Yoshi language, having a deeper voice than the others. He (along with several other Yoshis) lives on Yo'ster Isle, home of the Mushroom Derby races. Boshi, after winning a Mushroom Derby race, declared himself leader of the Yoshis, and canceled the Derby so he could be champion for eternity.

In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Mario travels to Yo'ster Isle and meets up with his old friend Yoshi who delivers the bad news of Boshi's reign. Yoshi reveals that Boshi has an extreme fondness for Yoshi Cookies and asks a friend to loan him some cookies so he and Mario can confront Boshi. Boshi, tempted by the cookies, agrees to the race.

If Yoshi wins the race, he is offered the leadership position Boshi once held, which he declines. Yoshi's words reform Boshi, who agrees to participate in fair competition going forward.

The ending cinematic of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars seemed to show that Boshi had befriended Croco after the latter had apparently moved to Yo'ster Isle.
