A Bubble Baby Yoshi is a blue Baby Yoshi appearing in New Super Mario Bros. U. It can blow out bubbles if the player shakes Wii Remote or presses the ZR Button button on GamePad when the character is grabbing one. In New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, bubbles can be blown out by tapping R Button. These bubbles are able to instantly defeat most enemies, turning them into three coins (six coins from certain larger enemies), a Super Mushroom, a Fire Flower, an Ice Flower, a Super Acorn, or a 1-Up Mushroom, which the player can collect. Whether an enemy turns into coins or a power-up is random, though coins are the most common. If an enemy turns into a power-up, which one is produced always depends on what current form the player is in: Small Mario and Mini Mario yield a Super Mushroom, Super Mario yields a Fire Flower, Fire Mario yields an Ice Flower, Ice Mario yields a Super Acorn, and Flying Squirrel Mario, P Flying Squirrel Mario, Propeller Mario, Penguin Mario, and Peachette yield a 1-Up Mushroom.

Bubble Baby Yoshis can be seen on the world map in Frosted Glacier and Rock-Candy Mines and can be met and taken to any other course except for castles and towers. Players also have the ability to bounce on the bubbles to reach higher places. A Bubble Baby Yoshi also adds a chorus to the current music, one he himself creates.

A Bubble Baby Yoshi appears in a challenge in Challenge Mode, where Mini Mario must use his bubbles to reach the top of the stage. Also, Bubble Baby Yoshis are found in some Red Toad Houses alongside other Baby Yoshis. Two Bubble Baby Yoshis also appear in the credits minigame, where they blow out bubbles that contain coins.

A Bubble Baby Yoshi also appears in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, on a collectible Battle Card alongside Blue Toad.

A power-up in Super Mario Bros. Wonder called the Bubble Flower gives the user the same powers as a Bubble Baby Yoshi.
