“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. Like many other Yoshis, he can only speak the Yoshi language, having a deeper voice than most others. He and several other Yoshis live on Yo'ster Isle, home of the Mushroom Derby races. After winning a Mushroom Derby race, he 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 is informed of Boshi's reign by Yoshi. Yoshi also reveals that Boshi loves Yoshi Cookies, and has a friend loan him some cookies so he and Mario can confront Boshi. Tempted by the cookies, Boshi agrees to a one-on-one race.

If Yoshi loses, Boshi will stay and race again for more cookies. If Yoshi wins the race, he is presumed to be the new boss of the isle, but declines the role, saying he just wants to race. Boshi then agrees to participate in fair competition going forward.

The ending cinematic of this game shows Boshi comforting Croco after losing a race to Yoshi, as both walk away from the race track.
