Pink Yoshi (right) and a Fake Yoshi (left)
|First appearance||Yoshi's New Island (2014)|
|Variant of||Shy Guy|
- “Fake Yoshi nearby! This copycat mimics real Yoshi's moves, so trick it into the spikes.”
- —Message Block, Yoshi's New Island
Fake Yoshis are Shy Guys disguising as Yoshi that appear in Yoshi's New Island. They appear in the level Inside the Outside and can be summoned by striking a Winged Cloud; when it is stricken, a Shy Guy appears and turns into a Fake Yoshi. The player can control the Fake Yoshi. The Pink Yoshi must then lead the Fake Yoshi into a spike pit. Once the Fake Yoshi falls on a spike, the Shy Guy reveals itself before being defeated. In its true form, it is shown to be white with green spots like a Yoshi egg.

化けて、こちらとまったく 同じ 動きをする。 直接は 攻擊できないので、こちらと 同じように 動く 性質を 利用し、 針山に 落として 倒そう。  (It is a fake Yoshi, and moves in exactly the same way as this one. Since you cannot attack it directly, take advantage of the fact that it moves in the same way as you do, and drop it into a needle pit to defeat it.)
