Orange Yoshis are color variants of Yoshi, first appearing in Mario Golf for the Nintendo 64 as an alternate color scheme for Yoshi. Like with the other Yoshis, Orange Yoshi has a unique color scheme and abilities, which vary between games. Occasionally, Orange Yoshi is an alternate palette of Yoshi and shares the same abilities. In Super Mario Sunshine, Orange Yoshi has orange skin and shoes with a red saddle, though it wears blue shoes in other appearances.
