Nintendo Character Guide (1993)[edit]

Yoshi, properly known as T. Yoshisaur Munchakoopas, had been held captive in an egg until Mario (homo nintendonus) bopped along and rescued him. Instantly, the young dinosaur and the plumber became fast friends. Together, they set out to rescue Yoshi's dinosaur pals from the wickedness of Bowser.

Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Instruction booklet[edit]

"A dinosaur that boasts surprising jumping prowess."


Name Image First Game/Move Description
Super Mario World
Yoshis are gentle, fleet-of-foot dinosaurs that make their home on idyllic Yoshi's Island. They come in a variety of colours and have evolved an interesting trait to help increase their numbers: they can transform anything they swallow into an egg. With adhesive tongues and bottomless bellies, Yoshi's have been known to eat anything.
Yoshi [Smash]
B: Egg Lay
Smash B: Egg Roll
To make up for his lack of powerful airborne attacks, Yoshi has a miraculous jumping ability and is resistant to damage while in the air. Yoshi can also swallow a foe and transform him or her into an egg: try doing this close to an edge! The speed and power of the Egg Roll increases if you hold down the B Button, but it'll be tougher to control.
Yoshi [Smash]
Up & B: Egg Throw
Down & B: Yoshi Bomb
Yoshi has no third jump, so the timing of his second jump is of vital importance. The angle and distance of his Egg Throw can be altered by how you tilt the Control Stick and how long you press the B Button. When Yoshi lands after doing his Yoshi Bomb, stars appear on either side of him, making it hard for enemies to deliver counterattacks.
Mario and Yoshi
Mario (specifically Cape Mario) & Yoshi
Super Mario World
Yoshi was first introduced in Super Mario World, and the sight of Mario riding the helpful character soon became an enduring image. Despite his Cape, Mario can't fly while astride Yoshi. The pair can make huge jumps and drift slowly back to earth, though. As a last resort, Mario could leap off Yoshi's back to safety.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]


  • Website: "Yoshi’s back and bursting with personality! He can launch consecutive attacks and even smack around enemies below him mid-flight.

Among other things, he can now use his up special move, the Egg Toss, to increase the distance of his jump. That’s enough to earn him a hearty welcome, isn’t it?"

  • Instruction Booklet: "A denizen of Yoshi's Island whose huge jumps lend superior air mobility."

SNES Yoshi's Safari*
N64 Yoshi's Story
A creature that hails from Yoshi's Island. Yoshis come in a variety of colors, and all possess gentle personalities. No matter what problems they face, they always look like they're having fun. Yoshis use their long tongues to grab and swallow fruit and enemies. They can convert what they swallow into eggs, which they then lay. They also give Mario rides.
Super Dragon
WII Super Smash Bros. Brawl Yoshi with wings on his back that give him the power to fly freely across the sky. In this state, he can spew giant fireballs. He is more mobile and powerful, but the inertia makes movement quirky, so it takes some skill to master flight. Yoshi returns to a normal state after a set period of time has passed.

*Note: This is incorrect. Yoshi's debut was in Super Mario World.

As dependable a partner as one could hope for, Yoshi often aids Mario in his adventures. Yoshi can swallow just about anything and make an egg of it instantly. He's got some serious airborne power, making launching opponents skyward and then following up with more attacks a wise choice. They say man's best friends is a dog, but Mario's may well be Yoshi. He lives on Yoshi's Island, and can swallow up just about anything, then lay it as an egg. In this game, jumping is his forte—he can leap really high, then quickly land again, making chasing after launched opponents and getting in sneaky follow-up strikes easy.

Yoshi's up special move Egg Throw is a projectile attack that travels farther the longer the button is held. Yoshi will also rise a bit if this move is used in midair. The side special Egg Roll turns Yoshi into a rolling, damaging egg. Yoshi won't roll off an edge if no directions are pressed. When you use the Egg Throw up special, how far Yoshi throws the egg depends on how long you hold the button. In mid-air, the move also makes him rise a bit. Egg Roll, a side special, sends him rolling inside an egg. If you don't control him while he's rolling, he'll stop just before he rolls off the edge of a platform.
Super Dragon N/A
Super Dragon trophy from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
Wings sprout from Yoshi's back and he transforms into a super-cool dragon! While transformed, Yoshi is invincible and will constantly breathe fire. He can also ram into foes and shoot fireballs at them. The fireballs are great for launching foes and most powerful when used at close range. A pair of wings appear on Yoshi's back, turning him into an angelic dragon. While the Final Smash is active, he can fly freely through the air, and is invincible to boot. He constantly breathes fire, can ram into opponents, and can also shoot fireballs that deal a lot of damage and have great launching power, especially at close range.
Yoshi + Egg 1 Egg1Trophy3DS.png N/A N/A This heartwarming contraption looks more at home in a theme park than a raceway, but don't be fooled—this egg-shaped frame can dive under the sea or soar through the skies with ease! Your opponents will be filled with envy when you break this out in Mario Kart 7. This kart combo looks like it belongs in a theme park rather than on a racetrack. But, of course, looks can be deceiving! The egg-shaped frame known as the Egg 1 is a speed demon in the water. Mario Kart 7's tracks include everything from deep blue seas to soaring slide routes, so you've got to be prepared for anything!
Yoshi's New Island MegaEggdozerTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A One day, Baby Mario came floating down from the sky, dropped by the stork carrying him. But what happened to Baby Luigi? Does this whole affair sound familiar? Looks like it's up to the Yoshi clan to help Baby Mario out! It won't be easy, though—not with Baby Bowser involved. One day, Baby Mario came floating down from the sky, dropped by the stork carrying him. But what happened to Baby Luigi? And why does this whole affair sound so familiar?

Palutena's Guidance[edit]

  • Pit: It's Yoshi!
  • Viridi: Let me get this straight. Yoshi lays eggs, but he's actually male?
  • Pit: Uhh, shouldn't you know that, O goddess of Nature?
  • Viridi: There's nothing natural about this guy!
  • Pit: Yeah, I see your point.
  • Palutena: Well, all living beings contain both female and male elements. It appears that Yoshi is no different.
  • Pit: I wonder what's inside all those eggs... Chocolate?
  • Palutena: Focus, Pit. If you use your shield when Yoshi's pulling off an Egg Roll, you can grab him. Keep that in mind.

"Yoshi is all about egg-related moves, like throwing eggs, swallowing opponents and turning them into eggs, or turning into an egg and charging toward an opponent. With a high jump, recovery is a piece of cake for Yoshi! And for his Final Smash, a Yoshi army stampedes through the stage."

Mario & Sonic series[edit]

Miis' Dialogues (Wii U version)[edit]

  • Yoshi and Mario are always palling around together on adventures. It's nice to see true friends like that. He even lets Mario ride on his back! Man, I'd give anything to ride a Yoshi. Anything! ...Well, OK. Not ANYTHING. But you get what I mean.
  • Yoshi is such a glutton! That long tongue can pick up pretty much anything, though I hear his favorite food is melon.
  • There are lots of varieties and colors of Yoshis, but they're all still just called "Yoshi." It's not really a name like how "Mario" is. If you're even in doubt, you can tell a Yoshi by their kind heart, fast feet, and huge appetite!

Coming from Yoshi's Island, it's Mario's trusted companion!
Yoshi has a carefree and easygoing personality. Even though there's a shell on his back, we actually don't know whether Yoshi's a dinosaur or a turtle!
Yoshi loves eating things! With his long tongue, he can swallow fruits and enemies completely whole. However, anything Yoshi swallows can only be laid as an egg! But, as you'd expect, it seems he can't eat Thwomps or Bowser...
Aside from Green Yoshi, there's Yoshis of various colours, such as Red, Light Blue, and Pink!
